I meant to sub to your TR before your trip, but I just never got a chance to read much.

I am Cynthias (eandesmom's) roommate from F&W and am sorry that I didn't get a chance to meet you and your family the night you met up with Cynthia. I had a foot meltdown of sorts. What can I say? I'm old and I have plantar fascitis. Anyway, I know you kept Cynthia out really late because I looked at the clock and it was midnight. I remember thinking "should I be worried?" Then I was like. "nah...Disney world is safe and she's a big girl". And back to dream land I went........

I am glad I am not the only person who thinks the ice wine was the biggest rip ever! Seriously, I chugged it because I was so dismayed at the serving size.

I'm glad you and your family loved the THVs. My family and my brother's family stayed there in June. It was great. I kept imagining how much nicer it would be in the cooler weather, especially for cooking out and stuff. I am also a big fan of SSR in general. So pretty.

So, I am not caught up yet, but will keep reading along!

I think Sherri's pictures! I can hardly wait until she goes again in a few weeks.

I'd miss Joshua too. Something special about our little, or not so little, boys.

and hi Mary Ellen, glad you popped over. I'm sorry we didn't get to meet. I'm sorry I missed the big meet but it we couldn't tear ourselves away from the High Rock Springs pool. That's what happens when I have Bloody mary's for breakfast.

I'm sorry you were having foot issues too. Thats a bummer especially when on vacation. Cynthia said that you ladies had a blast. One of these days I'm going to have to tagalong on one of the ladies only trips.

We did keep her out late. Blame my hubby and the round of margaritas he bought. And then the rest of us from dragging her around a semi-open WS. I had no idea that F&W didn't stay open during EMH.

I'm guessing and totally hoping that Joshua won't exhibit the same teen angst towards me that the girls have. I can't stand that they're clueless to the fact that I had a life, and a pretty damn good one, before becoming their mother.

I am happy to say that at 16 years old Loren is still a very level headed kid and kind of spoils me. You are singing my song about the girls. Kacy especially! I tend to liberal politically, she makes me seem conservative. Kody is a little better but they act like I know nothing. It can be annoying as all get out!

Bloody Mary's for breakfast will do that. SSR has some great pools and I am a pool fan, so I completely understand.

She did mention that margaritas were involved.

I think if they have to wait a little, it might be good for them. They will have all just returned from camp/friends just over two weeks before the trip. I think to say, hey now we're going to Disneyland might be too much indulgence. I don't do big Valentine or other gifts aside from birthday so there isn't another option to surprise them with it. I've obviously thought too much about this.
I hear you on the spoiling. Our poor kids, they come to expect these trips as a given, not a gift. Personally I'd love to give that to the E's for Christmas, I'm dying to see Carsland but there is no way Jeff will go for it. He'd say it was for me, more that for them and well...there might be some truth to that. It would not have the same impact with the older two at all though, for different reasons but if you think they'd be that into it, go for it. I love surprise trips. I made puzzles when we surprised the boys with a California trip (DCA, Knotts and Long Beach...no MK...long story lol). It was great. We flew into Long Beach...which they didn't know where it was and I had them put together the puzzles on the plane. Took the whole plane ride. Just before we landed they figured it out. I loved that trip!

Girls are getting OneD (killer gift!) what is Josh getting?

You conservative? She must need a tourniquet, she's such a bleeding liberal.

It was a nice night. She got a very big dose of us though. I'm just glad she's still talking to me.

Josh is going to SF with Michael next month to see a Raiders game as past of his gift. We're still tossing around Disneyland as a gift; I'm truly torn.

I love your puzzle idea. I'm so jealous of you creative types. I think they'd get into it.

I'm also tossing around a nonDisney Mexico cruise in Feb. I'm a freak.

What is your crew wanting for Christmas?

Sorry I've been MIA. I've been a FB junkie trying to organize and rally the troops for our foster boys Christmas. Its truly one of my favorite things about the season.

Happy almost Thanksgiving.

Well Kendall and Taylor are the worst at saying what they want. I don't know and clothes are usually the responses, followed by gift cards.

We are getting T an iphone, which means putting him on our plan (his mom's doesn't have data) so that will be a huge deal. Not sure about K but we might be splitting the cost of her letterman's jacket. If not that, I have no clue. Both will get an outfit as well. Evan has mostly clothes on his list so that's what he's getting (he will die though, Santa got him purple skate shoes and a purple UW sweatshirt), he will be over the moon plus more clothes under the tree. Eric's getting clothes under the tree but from Santa? Not sure. He wants a water filtration kit for scouts so it may be that. But it seems awfully boring. Still, in his geeky way it could be exciting to him. He has the "unreasonable" and the "reasonable" list. Unreasonable is a new Wii, Xbox, etc. Stuff he knows will never happen.

Honestly I have way more fun with the stocking stuffers and those are very Disney from ornaments, biographies, cookbooks, mugs, pins and more. Both boys are also getting a shirt from my trip that they don't know about and will be completely stoked to get.

I'm actually completely done with Evan and done with Eric other than Santa. The other two though... I have a few stocking stuffers for K and that is IT so far.

I would seriously look at the Feb-April Disney cruises if you can, some of the prices are just wonderful out of Galveston and Miami (comparatively speaking to summer lol). My kids would die over that but it's not in the budget or I might seriously push for it. It will be a LONG summer around here with no trip but with next NYE at the World and Universal, we've got to save up.

I should be figuring out our SF plans...it's in 2 weeks! But no...I'm looking at Aulani stuff. While drinking eggnog in front of the fire. I'm sure getting my room request in at 182 days will ensure we get what I asked for, right? LOL. I still can't believe we are booked. Not sure how I'll manage in a studio but I can suck it up for Hawaii.

Wow! Just read your thread... you've got me in the mood to head back over to WDW. We live less than an hour away, and don't take advantage nearly often enough!
Thanks!

She is terrible. I remember being almost as bad as her when I was her age. I know she will outgrow it but I hope it is soon. She embarrasses Loren terribly.
