We are planning on going to the pool tomorrow as well -- I don't think I can take anymore Monopoly (which we resumed after dinner tonight). That is truly the game that never ends.

doing the single digit dance!!!

Guess what today is???



yep just started the single digit dance!!!


9 days



So yesterday I took the kids to our Disney store and got them their gift cards for the trip... They each have $80 on them, plus some cash... Do you think that is wayy to much for a child?? (B/c My DH of course did at first, but I think now he knows in reality that really won't buy a whole lot all week, depending on what it is they pick out.)

They wanted to buy everything in the store yesterday! I kept saying we are NOT buying anything here today, wait for DISNEY TRUST ME....

so I also went shopping this morning and bought the rest of our snacks and breakfast foods for the week... This is killing me not knowing whether we are driving or flying.. with the cost of gas it would seem like a no brainer, but unfortunatly since we have to fly stand by and at least 2 of us have to sit together that causes some problems and stress when the flights are full... Which of course they are now... so it really will come down to the wire.

I hope the weather is nice in Orlando ? it has been crazy here all over the place again....

Next week will be all the last minute things and for me to REALLY start my packing ... I still have some things I need to get at walmart/target..

I can't believe how close it is now... and how LONG I have waited and planned for this!! it seems like years and years....

Happy countdown to the rest of you too!!!

Happy Single Digit Dance!!!

I think $80 is a good amount -- that is about what we are planning for Chelsea and Connor, plus they, too, have some cash saved up.

If they think the Disney store at Town Center is cool -- wait until they see what WDW has to offer!!!

I'm with you about the weather -- doesn't Mother Nature know we have bored kids??? Thank goodness the sun finally came out today!

When will you know for sure whether you are driving or flying? Do you have to wait until the day of?

Yeah for your countdown! I'm sooo excited for you. I went to the florist today and found out the lady behind the counter is going to the WDW this Sat!!!! How jealous am I?! As far as the weather, I'm in Ohio, and one day it's 75 and the next it's 55-60 and you want to turn on the furnace. Thankfully my kids are still in school and not wanting to swim, because I know that my pool is freezing.
$80 sounds about right. I think for our first time we gave them $60 and grandma and grandpa gave them $20. We just let them know that that's it, they have to work within their budget. It's a good learning experience. If they spend all their money on the first day, then that's their choice.
Keep us updated on the flight thing. That would make me lose sleep not knowing.

Whoo Hoooo Single Digits! That is so awesome, you are almost there!

I think that sounds good, the gift cards. My kids had their own $$$ last trip, mostly from gifts of Disney Dollars they had gotton and saved up money from birthdays and allowance. They had to use their own money for souvies. It was good for them, they were really more selective in their purchases. I get them each one nice pin when we are there but for the stuffed animals, jewelry, etc they were on their own and it worked out well.

We are still in school here, ho hum. Will be till June 18th.

Annette--I just wanted to tell you really quickly NOT to buy the Target mister fan--I put the batteries in, and NOTHING!!! Tom couldn't even get it to work--so skip it and look for the one at Walmart that Lesley was telling us about.

YEAH for the single digit dance!!!!! Good luck with the rest of the shopping!!

I think $80 is a great amount for the kiddos!!! Have a good Saturday! Talk soon, Jen

7 days! Yahoo! That is exciting and tell your DH to be a little half full instead of half empty! LOL!

We don't go back to school till August 28th and we have a week off in Feb and a week in April so that probably factors in too.
