Subbing for another great report. We have gone with the grandparents- both sides, at different times- and had a great time. I know my mom and mil both love seeing Disney through my kids eyes. Have a fun time planning!!

You will have a great time going with family! When my boys were little, my parents and sister always came to see the magic for the first time (the first was almost 3 his first time, and the second two each had their first time about 18 months).

Count me in as well. You guys will have a blast with the family, this may sound crazy, but I love have my in-laws with us on trips...they love it almost as much as us and it's just fun to watch them.

I'm here, friend! Let the planning begin!

I love how we book our trips close to one another, but hate the fact that we 'just' miss one another! Maybe next year!

P.S. When I read your title I wanted to reach into my laptop and give you a big ole' hug! You are so my kinda girl, ZeBrook!

I'm in. I love Disney at New Year's I've been 3 times before, but just can't swing it this year. You'll have lots of fun.

Disney is a fun place to be on New Years Day. The parks were low crowds in the morning of the 1st. I don't know if everyone was sleeping late or watching football, but the crowds stayed away until the afternoon the two times I have been at Disney on the 1st.

See what happens when I don't DIS for a couple of days - you start your PTR and it's already 3 pages by the time I get over here! You've got quite a following, girl.

I think that's so wonderful that you are taking your in-laws, and that you actally enjoy them! Me? I couldn't handle a day trip with mine, let alone an entire vacation.

I do not know who ZeFronk is....yet anyways...I'm sure in time Caleb will let me know who they are all. I am now getting acquianted with Handy Manny and all of his tool friends according to my 2.5 yr old newphew!

Oh and it took me a while to realize who "NYE" was...until I realized New Years Eve!

Can't wait to hear how the trip with the inlaws go...I too my inlaws! I am a very lucky girl who married into a wonderful family. My MIL keeps Caleb and my 3 yr old niece everyday!
You will know who ZeFronk is veryyyy soon I bet! Handy Manny is a cool dude too. They actually had a commerical that I caught with the real guy who does Handy Manny's voice - it was so weird to see him in real life and yet he sounded like the familar cartoon.

That is SO nice that your MIL watches Caleb. I would love it if my MIL could watch Henry. We have an excellent set-up with a very close friend, but Grammy would be even more ideal!

I am so looking forward to your trip, I want to hit up Disney on all of the holidays someday so I can learn from you!
Thanks LL!! Despite being exhausted I was fairly pleased with that pic as well. It was before the Henry Meltdown too!

I would love to hit Disney on all the holidays too...MeMom is well on her way to doing that!

Hmmm, I can't quite put my finger on it, but New Year's Eve just seems like it's going to be pretty special this year.

I don't know. I'll let you know if I think of what's happening.
Until then, I'll count down with you.

226 cups of hot cocoa on the wall,
226 cups of cocoa,
You take one down,
Pass it around on the Poly beach on NYE while you're watching Wishes,
225 cups of cocoa on the wall!
I love your song! I can't really remember what is happening either on NYE...something about a few DISers meeting up, and some kids playing together...on the Poly beach while watching Wishes...does it get any better?

It really is so special to experience Disney with your little one! It will be worth the wait. And then you can get really prepared and get all sorts of tips from the DIS before your trip.

Henry has a fair share a temper tantrums already...I hope as he learns more words and understands more they subside some. I know some of his frustration stems from not being able to fully express what he wants. BUT, some of it is for no reason! Overall, he's still a very good little boy-we have more happy fun times than cranky ones!

God forbid we tell him he can't go outside!

I'm hoping he's getting it out now so he's better behaved later. I don't think it can get worse.
"Side, side, side, side" that's all I heard this morning! Unfortunatly it's 45 degrees here in Minnesota today. We'll probably head out anyway after his nap, winter hat, coat, etc. You wouldn't even know it was May.

Ya, I have to make sure to keep in the mindset of it being very busy this time of year, and the family might not want to move as quickly as I do!

This will probably be like another first time for Henry, being he probably doesn't remember a whole lot from either previous trip. And even being older, I'm sure he'll experience things in a whole new way too. I'm excited to share this with the family!

I love Choo-Choo Soul as well. I always dance with Henry (except he doesn't always dance ) during it. Henry gets VERY excited when it comes on TV and puts his hand up like pulling the horn cord. It's so sweet.

I know it! I couldn't believe it when you PM'ed me with your dates! Maybe our paths will cross that last day...depending on flight times. Henry would love to meet Belle! And I would love to meet you!! Have you offically announced this trip yet?

Glad you like the PTR title! Joe and I were going through some various things over chat the other day while at work and I threw out this one, and he freaked "YES!" and we kept coming back to it no matter how many other ones we tossed around. Playhouse Disney is such a big part of our lives, it's gotta be represented!

I am a very fortunate girl to have great in-laws. I hear so many awful stories of MILs trying to control their son, and then when you have babies it's a whole new deal-like you are doing everything wrong, etc. Ugh. My DMIL is incredible!
