I just wanted to come on here and say goodnight. I'm off to bed to get some rest for the big reveal early tomorrow morning! I can't wait! Thank you for all the company and advice you've given to me! I've learned so much!

Hello all! We just arrived at JFK awhile ago. The flight was really only 45 minutes or so. I don't think our flight to Orlando will take 3 hours then. Yea! We'll get there sooner. Our surprise went very well! Our DD was very excited, but very tired. After the tiredness wore off, she was jumping for joy (as was I). My pictures that I took during the surprise came out blurry. I was shaking!!!! She loves her "Guide to the Magic" book. We skimmed it over while we were at the Buffalo airport. I walked around a bit at the airport and I ran into a family from church who's going down today as well. She's the friend of mine who almost ruined the surprise a few weeks ago! I can't wait to get to Florida!!!!

Can I ask those who are headed down this week, based on the weather reports, are you packing for warm weather, as in capris/shorts every day? The nightime low's are in the 50's, will you switch to jeans for that or just throw on a jacket?

Thanks!

Ok...let's see...beside the one long pair of jeans I'm wearing down, I'm packing all capri jeans (light weight) for myself. I figured this is what I would do....wear capri/tank shirt, and a zip up hoodie. If it's hot I plan on taking off the hoodie..if it's colder and I need more than just the lightweight hoodie...I have a fleece zip up longer jacket that will I'll wear also. That's my plans for the whole week.

For my kids....basically the same thing...my little one I'll probably start off with his sweatpants, t-shirt, sweatshirt, and if need be a jacket also. I'll throw in a pair of his shorts in my park bag, and as the day gets warmer....I'll put them on him. Basically the same idea for the older 2 kids.

My husband is on his own LOL....I've been asking him all week to pull out stuff to bring...tomorrow night he'll be saying my shorts don't fit...as we are leaving on Monday

Hope that helps a bit.

I can't believe that almost all of our Snowbirds have enjoyed their trips so far! I'm sad to see our group come to a close

I'm going on Monday - and I packed a variety - jeans, capris, shorts, long and short sleeves. and jackets. We are also going on a cruise after, so I packed tanks and shorts for that, plus dresses (for us girls!). I've been seeing fairly warm highs for the next week's forecast, so I'm WAY excited! One more day of this subzero garbage!!!
