AND we will now have to cancel our January trip. The soonest we want to swing it is the end of February..our baby will be 2 1/2 months at that point. I heard that taking a baby is easy peasy..so we shall see. I took DD to disneyland when she was a baby and it was a breeze. I hope that this one will be just as easy.

Thanks for letting me ramble! Oh, and you all are the first to know about baby besides Nate and my mom. I just had to tell!
Congratulations!!!!

Well now that I'm officially signed up for my 4th Goofy Challenge, I guess I can post here! Currently my plan is to be there from Jan 9th - 17th. I would stay longer but Disney decided to move the Tinkerbell 1/2 marathon to MLK weekend so I have to get home for that! 3 races one week apart!

I am planning to stay at BWI again. I LOVED it there this past year. My very first time at a deluxe and now I am hooked. Happy planning all!

CONGRATS!!!! A new little angel is a good reason to have to cancel a WDW trip. You can keep coming back here and letting us know how your little one is coming along. If you don't mind me asking, do you know the due date yet? Does DD know yet?

I would love to one day be able to do the 1/2 marathon at WDW. I can totally understand being hooked on a deluxe. We stayed at the WL on our last trip and I fell totally in love with it. I wanted to stay there for our June trip, but it just wasn't in the budget.

Well I'm going to go take a nap, I think. Monday night, I got the super smart idea to try a new Monster energy drink that my DH had bought. It is a special one that is in a glass bottle and is brewed in Germany, like they would brew a beer. Well I ended up not going to sleep until some where between 3 - 4 AM and I had to be back up at 7:30. Then my DH needed me to go to work with him for an extra pair of hands. I ended up not being able to go to bed until 1-ish AM last night and was back up at 7:30. Then I took a 3 1/2 hour Psyc final exam. I still have a U.S. History one to take, but I think I might try and sneak a nap in. Not sure if I'm going to since I can only sleep about an hour.

Oh well, good news is that I am making a lot of progress of the scarf I want to make for our January trip. I have the double knitting down pat. Double knitting is where the scarf is one color on one side and another color on another. Then I figure out how to make it a solid color on one side and stripes on the other. I was able to figure out how to make a pattern in it using only the two colors. Now I need to figure out how to make the pattern, but on the solid side the pattern will be stripes. Well not really figure it out, but more like actually do it rather than think in my head I know how to do it. On the stripes side, the pattern will be solid. Of course it will be a Mickey head pattern. I'm thinking about just making a Mickey head on each end, but may end up making more. I have a MH pattern that I am going to test to see if it'll work and actually look like a MH.

Thank you all for the congrats!

DD doesn't know yet, we were going to wait a month or two before we tell her.

I will definitely come along for the planning ride over here, if that is okay! This is the best group on the DIS!

Make sure you do. Instead of planning a WDW along with us, we'll plan WDW trips and you plan the arrival on your new angel. I'm sure the wedding, even if it wasn't what you were planning it to have been, will be beautiful all the same. Heck, maybe to make up for it, some day you can do a renewal at WDW.

You didn't have an end date, so I just put a "?".

Well I worked today on a new pattern for the MH scarf. I'm working on it now and I won't go to sleep until I see how it's going to turn out. I'll post a picture and let y'all know if it looks ok. If not, it's going to file 13.

Well I figured it out. I made a new pattern and it helped tons. I'll posts pics of both sides.
Yellow background, pink MK


Pink background, yellow MK


Now I just need to make a pattern to include one side to have stripes, and then test that one out. Then the really hard part, of going to the store and picking out yarns.
