WOW!! You DID have a busy weekend! I loved all of the pictures! Ally has her dance recital this weekend with dress rehearsal on Thursday night--she's sooo excited!! I like the idea of your fun week--it sounds like fun and a great way for girls to try dance before they sign-up!! Sorry, I can't help with the Fantasmic thing. We waited in line for an hour in the rain and lightning to hear that it was cancelled. We didn't get to see it--next time, though!!

It was a jam packed weekend for sure. I hope that Ally has a wonderful recital this weekend! As far as Fantasmic goes, I think we'll just decide once we get there. I don't want to over think things. I know we'll see it eventually.

Hey I have been reading your whole PJ (and I dont think I ever posted but I could be wrong)... anyways.. I am from Buffalo too!! I live in Memphis TN now though (my mom can't wait til our drive home for the wedding when she can see her first tim hortons and get an iced cap..i don't drink coffee or anything but love their hot smoothies!)

Ok onto the disney topic....

I was just there and am going back in 3 weeks for a 2 week honeymoon...

I suggest going nowhere near the first showing of fantasmic... we walked by at 8:10 and the 9:00 was already standing room only!!! Fantasmic is my favorite show there so I endure the lines... so at about 8:40 I lined up for the 10:30.. AWFUL. People were crammed on top of me and that has NEVER happened before!! However, it didn't get as crowded in that one and if you aren't worried about having the perfect seat (like I am) then just go in at like 9:45 or 10 and find a seat. A lot of people said that the earlier show is so packed because people want their kids to see the early one and go to bed? I don't know if that's the real reason or not.

Ok I think that is all I wanted to say (I got distracted by talking about wedding stuff with my fiance... I clearly can't multi-task after a week in disney.. body=exhausted!)

I'm worn out just reading about your weekend! Sounds like it was great. Congrats to your daughter, she placed her first time out and she looked so cute. I bet your students love you.

Orginally I planned on hitting F! on our last night 6/28 but now I think I'll hit it at the late showing on 6/23. We have an 8 ARD at WCC,if we can make it back in time. I'm loving having two spectros each night, more choice.

Thanks for reading! I'm not sure about the whole Fantasmic thing yet. I'll have to talk it over with my family. I hope that you have a wonderful wedding!

My students and I have a very special bond. They're my extended family. I do like the 2 showings of Spectro, but I think we're still going to hit up the earlier one. 11pm is a bit too late for my early EMH family!

I love the difference in the pictures of your girls when they are serious and the 'funny' one! It's too cute!! Looks like all the hard work paid off!

Madison really did a great job. She brought in her medals and pictures to school today for show and tell.

My girls are really quite goofy!

Good morning everyone!!!! I don't really have anything to talk about this morning, but I'm very excited for some reason. It's starting to sink in that we're leaving in 13 days. I can utilize online check-in 3 days from now. How crazy is that?! I'm still debating if I want to use it or not. They have my requests on my reservation and I plan on sending a fax 4 days before our arrival day. I'm just really hoping that I get them! I know nothing can be guaranteed, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed! We've paid for a preferred room so I'd like to be in one of the 60's buildings. I've also requested to be poolside on a higher floor. The noise from the pool doesn't bother us at all. I actually can't sleep if it's too quiet!

I feel like I'm starting to lose my mind a little bit. I have a very thorough packing list, but I keep checking it and adding little things to it. I think I just need to leave it alone. After reading some threads on the Dis, I've decided that I'd like to decorate our resort window. I went to Party City the other day and bought a few Tinkerbell birthday decorations. I've also seen some great things over on the DISign threads. I'm going to see if some of those talented ladies can make a few signs for me. I've messed around with some clip art and such, but my signs come out very boring. Has anyone ever decorated their windows before? If so, please feel free to post any pictures that you have. I'd love to see them!

Well, I think that's all for now. I'm just trying to figure out our evenings right now. I'd really like to use the PM EMH's, but I think MK might be too late for us. 11pm-2am!!!!! If if was just myself and Tony, I'd definately do it, but it's too late for Madison. Have a great day everyone!

I can't believe your trip is almost here....again! lol I'm sooo jealous, you're doing two trips before my one!! At least I get to live vicariously through you....so thanks for going, again!!

You're on countdown....is Madison getting excited? It must be sneaking up on your guys since you've been SO busy lately!! But that is a good thing.

OT, went to ON yesterday and made out well, thank you!! I got the boys a TON of long sleeve tshirts for Fall for $1.97 each! And some things for DH too on the 50% off sale, can't beat it!! So thanks!!

I still can't believe we're taking 2 trips in one year. I never thought I'd be so lucky!!! I'm glad that you've been enjoying my TR's and such. I know that you're going to have so much fun on your trip with your mom and sister. I'd love to do a girls only trip someday. My sisters and I would have a blast! We're getting very excited around for sure. I had a lot of fun over on the DISigns threads this morning. I still have to pick out which DISigns I want for window decorations!

I'm thrilled you were able to get some great stuff at ON for your boys and DH. I finally was able to take my DH shopping on Tuesday. On top of the 50% sale for Men, I was able to use my 25% off employee discount. So, we got 3 pair of cargo shorts, 2 t-shirts, a polo shirt and a pair of khakis for $52!!!! I was amazed. Cargo shorts are normally $24.50, so we made out quite well. Overall (with the sale and my discount) we saved $84!!! Isn't that just crazy?! The sale runs until the 21st, so I encourage everyone to get out there and shop for the men in their lives. Sales like this don't come along often.

I did my online check in today! I'm feeling really excited too! I would be more excited if my air hadn't gone out this morning. The repair man won't be here until tomorrow. At least we have a window unit that we bought after Hurricane Gustav when we didn't have power for 6 days. Right now it's cooling off our bedroom. I guess this is one way to get use to the heat we'll have in Florida.

Awesome! I think that if we decide to do online check-in, I'll wait until 2 or 3 days before we leave. That way, we'll be able to fax over our requests to Pop before we check-in. As far as A/C, our house doesn't have it. We had it in our apt and LOVED it, now, we're adjusting.
