I think you'll have plenty of room though. It's amazing how well you can coop with a smaller space when you need to.

Welcome home. & Get some rest.

I think it's great that you invited your Dad to come along. I hope he takes you up on your offer, I'm sure you all will have a great time, and it'll nice to get to spend some time together having fun!

Thanks! He hasn't made a decision yet, but there is some time left (a little bit!).

We're now down to the TWENTIES!!!! This trip is totally sneaking up on me!!! I hope that doesn't mean the trip will be over before I know it!

I JUST got back from Mississippi from the Wedding. It was QUITE an event, and I'll share a few pictures later. I decided on a Greek Goddess Costume and everyone was calling me "Aphrodite" since I was directing the wedding. Of course, NOW my husband wants in on that action…

Talked to my dad, I think he is trying to figure out what my siblings will do if he comes with us. He doesn't want to leave them "alone" on the first holiday after my mom passing- which I totally understand. My brother will probably go with his GF's family, but my sister is so back and forth with her BF, but she could go to some extended family meal. If her son wasn't in the middle of terrible 2's we'd consider inviting the two of them.

Well…. you would have if Photobucket would have been working! I had plans for a nice post with LOTS of pictures and I can't get the thing to work!!

I got some packing done tonight!! I decided to do the girls stuff in ziplock bags and I already feel so much more organized! Seriously, who knew ziplock bags would make such a difference? I let Cortlyn write on the bags, and then will fill hers with underwear for each day, and started picking out the outfits she will wear. She's really picky, so it was important to have her helping me! We talked about each park and who we'd see there and things we would do. I'm about half done with the girls stuff! YAY! I didn't order any special outfits, the last few weeks has just been so crazy. I wanted matching shirts for them, but I just can't worry about it in such a short amount of time at this point, you know? But it won't be any less magical if they don't have matching outfits, right?????

YEA for 2 weeks to WDW!!!!!! It will be here before you know it

What size ziplock bags are you using for the girls clothes? I had been thinking about doing that for my little boys too but wasnt sure of the size to get.

I went with the gallon size bag. They are plenty big, I wish I could have a 1/2 gallon really. But for some of the outfits, it would be too smooshed in a smaller bag. I'm really excited about packing this way!! I may keep this up for all of our trips (not just disney) in the future!

Okay, so talked to Dad and he is not coming with us. Totally understandable, no hard feelings at all. I'm sure we'll have time in the future with him.

I have so much to do THIS WEEK! OMG. One week until DisneyEve!!!! I have to go do last minute shopping. Ponchos, bandaids, you know how it goes. Gotta be prepared!!

OH and I had a friend make the girl's some shirts!! I'm super excited, since I had kinda given up on the idea of doing anything special. She is mailing them to us, and writing a note to the girls from the princesses! I'm so excited!

I finally got PhotoBucket to work, so you guys are going to get one last hurrah post tonight! Yippee!

So, I had told you guys that I had Cortlyn help me "pack" the ziplock bags… Well, here is the proof!

Writing on the bags…


Catie wants to help!!


Just some of the clothes we packed



The finished product… well, MOST of it! (This is not all we are packing! haha I have a LOT left to pack!!)


Nana & Pops (also know as my In Laws) came up this weekend and brought the girls some goodies for Disney.



The best of the girls in their new dress up clothes…


And the shirts that I ordered for the girls from my friend!!! I'm soooo excited!!!!! I'd like to find a red or black skirt for them to wear with it!


Okay, well, there you go! I'll try and check in with you guys this week as I can… but I REALLY need to focus on getting myself completely packed and ready for our trip!
