That works! I sertainly appreciate people who can dance well, because I sure can't! (Unless you count jumping around and flailing limbs.) What kind of dancing do you do?

Some very exciting news! My MIL called last night to let me know that my niece (18) is going to be able to join us for the trip! DH and I are soooo excited because my SIL keeps my niece VERY sheltered (no drivers license, not jobs, missed 1st year of college) and we hardly ever get to see her. In fact, we are shocked she's even allowing her to go. We won't tell my kids, so when my MIL pulls in the driveway next Tuesday with my niece my kids will flip out!!! The bonus is that we were able to add her to our ressie and all our ADRs without having to change a thing. DH and I are going to pick up the extra cost as a belated graduation gift since our other gift was rather boring(luggage and a book) since she wasn't going off to college right away and I didn't know what to get her. This is going to be so much fun!!!

On another note, I was able to find that cute pink wallet on clearance at my Target - perfect. This was after I locked my keys in my van (which I have never done before) and had to call a locksmith! So embarrassing.

I looked up the Who's shoes and they look exactly like what I need! Both my kids wear velcro shoes but I wonder if I can get them in time for our trip now! Perhaps I can make something that will work?
I know I sound like a paranoid mother but I'd rather be safe than sorry.
I have what might sound like a strange suggestion...if you go to somewhere like Wal-Mart you can get dog tags engraved with your name and phone # on them. Get the ones with the ring and then you can attach it to the loop that your velcro lace-thingy goes through. It doesn't cost alot of $$ and they are pretty sturdy so I doubt they would get broken or lost. Just my strange suggestion

Not strange at all! Great idea! I can put the cell phone # on it and that's all they need!

Am I crazy in thinking I remembered the LGMH to actually be just the head, not the white "frame" thing around them? I had them pictured in my head as a bit bigger and JUST a MH cutout...am I crazy? Did I totally just make that up in my head??

I've heard others suggest this as well.

No, you're not crazy. I always thought they'd be bigger too. I suppose you could make your own bigger ones, like from a DISign, but that would be more work and ink from your printer. I'm trying to figure out if I can still write on mine even though they are laminated. I really wanted to put my DIS name on them so people would know it's me.

Question for all the mom Snowbirds...
I've read some things about child safety while on vacation. Of course hubby and I will be super vigilant to keep our eyes on the kiddos- we're good parents- but you never know in a crowded situation. Things happen. Do any of you put some sort of ID/parents cell phone # on your kids in case they become separated? If so how? dh suggested a Sharpie. I don't know how I feel about writing on my kids with a Sharpie.
FOR ALL SNOWBIRDS WITH CHILDREN...
One great tip from a co-worker...EVERY morning before going to your park, take a picture of your children with your digital camera. In case " you" get lost from your children, you have a picture of what they are wearing that day to show CM's. The kids love posing for pictures, so they are none the wiser!
I also take a picture of my photopass card incase I lose it...

Just went to Cabela's tonight and by DD12 and myself some Mary Jane crocs..on sale for $19.88 love the bargins!

Printed off the pressed penny locations to bring home for the DD's to cross off their already found press pennies....and they can't find them! NICE..they have 6 days to search.

I'm checking my list twice and reviewing my tioletries and meds...this ear infection better be GONE by the time I fly. I feel like taking a knife and cutting my left side of my head off!

Just a bit more and I'm off to bed for the night...I need my rest!

Shelly, enjoy the sunshine. Appleton is having -9 tomorrow!
7 more days...

What is the name on the LGMH card? I have a bunch of different colors and I'm not sure which one it is.

I've been dancing since I was 5 yrs old. Started with ballet and then added on jazz, tap, modern and pointe. I'm currently a ballet teacher and a member of a professional dance team!

Yea! Isn't that wallet just perfect?! I'm so glad that you found one.

I've taken pictures of our park tickets for the same reason - they can be replaced if we keep track of the numbers on the back.

Good evening birdies!
tonight we had our last minute running around. I think we're done!
I wanted to haved our suitcases ready, but I am still undecided about alot of stuff, So our clothes are laid out, the cases are out, now I need to sort and physically pack the bags.

I finally found an SLR camera case that is not totally cumbersome and actually fits my point and shoot and wallet. This means DH will be responsible for the wipes, antibacterial lotion etc. I am not so sure how this will work... I debated not taking the SLR due to the weight of it, but Dh convinced me otherwise.

Tonight Dh discussed our next trip... our last trip in jan 2007 DH got bad news while in MK, this bad news has haunted us since and actually may resolve while we are away. Dh has promised me to celebrate we will do a disney cruise later this year! So hopefully my disney blues will not be too bad.

Pixie dust to all those that need it... and thank you for the snowbirdies providing their wonderful reports...
Only a few more days for me... the to do list is getting shorter... thansk for listening
