Heck I am just excited to see you on Friday!! The girls are really excited too to see Anthony and Addy and the twins as well as you all!! You guys are going to have so much fun. My trip is not too far off either although we have to get through xmas first. I am excited but have so much else going on that I haven't thought about it much LOL.

I can't wait to see Carsland all decked out as well as the rest of the parks.

Can't wait to see you and then of course hear how the trip was when you get back and see all your pics!! Will get me excited for my trip which by then will be a lot closer!!

It will be great having more time to capture those pictures too (and more cameras). Might let Mike take the lead on picture taking this trip and actually see stuff with my eyes instead of thru the camera lens!!! I'll still take pics.....but Mike has that fancy camera and know his pics will be clearer and nicer than mine......so I may relax this time around!!

No, we're just gonna hang out at the hotel or DTD on the 15th......so let me know when you're ready to meet up. The only thing later in the day is a 7:30pm dinner ressie.

Working on last minute things.....went to the bank and got cash out for the Disney snacks, Disney tips (since we're using gift cards and can't pay the tip with those) and gas. After having my # hacked a short time ago.....don't want to chance it. Gas stations are notorious for skimmers and problems. I also got my "Mouse-Keeping" tip envelopes done for our stay at the PPH.



Have a few more prescriptions we're hoping to get filled (we need them early because we'll be out of town....so who knows if the insurance will approve them or not). Then some last minute laundry and house cleaning......don't want to come home to a dirty house!

We packed up my Disney books, memorabilia books/magazines and Disney CD's to make room on my book shelf for our Christmas movies about 2 weeks ago. Tyler set the box inside the garage.....well a week ago we noticed water on the box. I looked inside and EVERYTHING WAS SOAKED!!! Water and books are a BAD, BAD mix! Some of my 50th Anniversary stuff from Disneyland was ruined and it made me ill. We dried everything the best we could but we have a lot of crispy, warped pages......... Anywhos......we discovered that the roof was leaking (just in that one spot). The roofer finally made it out today and he found nails all over the roof. We're guessing the owners had put Christmas lights all over the roof. Well it's those nails that are causing the problem and he's surprised we don't have more problems. So now we're waiting to see if the roof will be replaced while we're gone. Problem is........I've set the DVR up for the 11 days we're gone and they need the satellite dish removed and then we'll need to have it put back up when we get home. Well.....no satellite up, no taping...... Ok, it's just TV.....but we have a few (well between 3 adults) we have quite a few shows that we'd like to watch when we get back. So now I'm gonna try and see if the satellite people can come out and maybe tripod it before we leave......wish me luck!! (just what I needed....one more last minute thing to worry about).

Oh forgot to mention........Michayla's formula has been held up waiting on an insurance approval. I called our supplier last week to let them know we were leaving this Friday......we need the formula, the syringes and tubes by Thursday......I'm not sure that's gonna happen!!!! Ummm, people how do want me to feed my girl while we're on vacation?? I'm getting a tad irritated and stressed over all these things........

I should be saying "is it time to go?" but instead, I'm going "this is coming too fast"......... blah!!!

Oh no!! I'm sorry you're having so much pre-trip stress! We're having some of our own here (I'm updating my TR with details soon). Just remember, it won't be long before the Disney magic sweeps over your family and the rest of it will seem far, far away!

Me too.....sounds like the supplier will get our stuff to us and enough formula to get us thru the trip......but I just didn't need all this extra stuff going on right now.

My mind has been so preoccupied with this sweet 10 mth old baby that is part of our post-camp group from this summer. She coded last Weds night and went 25 mins with no heart beat. She shouldn't still be here. She has severe brain damage and the parents were given the results of the MRI this afternoon on brain function or lack of......... I know they are deep in prayer and with family to discuss what needs to happen next. I can't imagine having to make those kind of decisions.....my heart just aches for this young family. The moms faith is amazing and she speaks so openly about all the small miracles that has happened since she coded. If you are a prayerful person and want to pray for baby Hayley: the mom is asking for reversal of brain damage or for God to transition her to heaven. Absolutely gut-wrenching...... All this stuff I'm dealing with seems trivial.

Cute Mousekeeping envelopes

Sorry for all pre stress

That's a shame about your disney books and anniversary stuff

Glad supplier will be able to hopefully give you enough formula to get through the trip

I am praying for that sweet little baby

Thanx Kelly......I'll survive all the stress but sheesh......I've had enough already!!

I was bummed out about the 50th stuff.....but I still have them....just not in pristine condition anymore.

Thanx for the prayers for Hayley.....her family needs them right now!

My heart goes out to baby Hayley and her family! She is definitely in my prayers for God's will (secretly hoping for reversal of brain damage). I know this is a tough time and very stressful and I hope everything works out (for you and her family)!

Thank you so much!! This baby has got prayers coming from all around the world!! It's amazing the effect of passing on this information and how it gets passed on and again and again. The small miracles this baby girl has had over the last week is proof of the power of prayer.

Once we hit the road, I'll let go of all the extra stress.....its just getting all this stuff finalized before we leave!!
