in april of 2010, briana (tammy and i) bought a new chevy cobolt. we took the loan and briana made the payments. last month briana got it paid off!! she made all but maybe $300. worth of payments and those were birthday or christmas presents.
the kid made $400-$500 payments to get it paid off in two years. well, today we went to the notery and signed it over to her!!! she also went to the insurance company to get her own insurance. her insurance is $112 per month. shes smiling from ear to ear, signing all her paper work!!!
of course when the notery flip the bill around for $68.50 for title, tag transfer, she didnt have any money!!! i still ended up paying!!!

That is a beautiful story, I'm getting teary-eyed LOL. Wish her good luck and congrats from us! She is a wonderful kid/young woman. You and Tammi are awesome parents, you must be SO proud of her.

like tammy said, " we have to love her, she aint goin anywhere, anytime soon."
she worked hard for it and the past few weeks has been working 38-45 hour weeks before school starts to get her account built back up.
she is learning how do deal with people and fellow employees.
some of the storys she comes home with.

Greetings from WDW!

Big news, of course, is the announcement of the new Fantasyland expansion opening on December 6!

We'll be driving back in December; however, an October drive comes first.

All the best.

well, we looked at it this way, im an uneducated orphan and tammy never went to college and we had to work for everything (which isnt alot) we have.
wont kill her to work for what she wants. briana was a competitive dancer for 15 years so she learned how to work for something and every once in awhile you get that big trophy at the end. shes learning.

We ( DH, three kids and I) are driving down to Disney in Nov. It's a surprise trip for the kids so at first we planned on sending them to school 11/9 and picking them up early from school and hit the road anywhere from 10-12 am. BUT the family that we are meeting down there decided to get there for Friday night...they are flying so we want to get there then as well. DH is suggesting we leave after he has worked all day at 9 pm Thursday night...I suggested after reading some posts on here that we should shoot for 2-3 am thurs into friday. DH thinks this is a bad idea for two reasons...one being he thinks he wont sleep from when he gets home from work till 1 am or so because he will be excited and two to wake the kids in the middle of the night he thinks we will loose the WOW SURPRISE factor that we are going to Disney. Any suggestions/input on this??!!! Thank You!!

I copied this here after I started a new thread.....I figured here was best for this!!! Thanks!

im not sure how long of a drive you have but for me, i cant drive through the night. i can leave at 3am and drive till 7pm when we arrive at wdw with no help. if your not use to driving all night, it can get real hard to keep your eyes open. the kids, if you would wake my dd up at 2am and tell her shes going to wdw, she would be in the car in 2 min. smiling from ear to ear. also consider what citys your going to hit and at what time. my east coast friends who drive i95 tend to sit in traffic which could hold you up for hours. but, if he can drive through the night and stay alert, thats the best way.
