Happy Monday to all of you. I have missed LOTS of things, it appears.

What a long weekend. I believe I need a vacation to recover...

Janet & Jeanette: You two make me laugh my butt off, seriously... got a text from Janet (albeit late because my phone was dead) and Jeanette's post about changing my dates to a couple days letter. Full-court press, you two. Never say never! It gives me something to do anyway... I'll be perusing the school calendar.

GG: Samwise is flippin' ADORABLE! Thanks to Christine for posting that pic.

Candace: Ahhhh, look at those gorgeous little snow angels! Did they tire of playing in the snow over the weekend? You're my short pal at 5'3" ... though I tower over you with my extra 2". Us Oompa Loompas have to stick together.

My sorta-plan is doing MK on two party nights and possibly DHS (Miss M's favourite) which will use only one day of our NE tickets. Spending the rest of the time touring resorts, possibly. That'd leave 3 days on the NE tickets and that's the same amount of park time we did back in January. Ooooo, resort buddies! Think you all might be going at the same time next year?!

Jen: Your hubs is being the voice of reason! Sounds like something my hubs'd do. We've kinda shied away from the PHs in the past for the reasons you mentioned. I almost got them this last time due to us knowing we'd be at either BC or YC. Though to be honest, with the exception of one evening, we never really felt we would have benefited from them. I'm sure when Miss M gets older, that'll change though. We decided against the AP tickets last year for exactly the thing Padawans said, you kinda feel obligated to go and get your money's worth... with me and my commitment issues. ( Too many ADRs come to mind )

Magic: Will you be regaling us with pics of the Deluxe room? (To make me wish I had booked that instead of just the regular garden view? ) Can't wait to hear how you like it. Have you stayed in the wing before? Coming up very soon...

Kook: AKL-CL? Shouldn't that be "AKL-CL Until the CR Bug Comes to Bite"? Where's Heather when we need her? She's always good at the AKL-CL convincing.

How are our other snow bunnies doing? Sheila, DetTigsGal, Pumba, Debrn? How much snow did you get, Dani? Sheila, I hope they've come to dig your driveways out today.

to all the new RCers. It's always fun to have new "faces" to chit-chat with.

oompa loompas!!!!

The girls did not last long outside. On Saturday, I think it was about 17 minutes...It was 15 degrees outside...DD6 literally had some icicles on her eyelashes.
Yesterday though, they lasted about an hour before coming in and demanding hot chocolate.

Wookie: My was omitted from the previous reply. That's all for BC, by the way. Because I can't do that enough for BC. Did you ever find a way to get the DisBoards app on your Kindle?


~~------------------------~~

So, what do you experts think about kids at California Grill? (Sorta related, Miss M had a really nice time at Bluezoo.) I might-maybe try for an ADR at CG on our arrival night.

Playing in the snow and hot chocolate. That's the best combo. I miss those days!

What is wrong with you, Chicagoland?! Most we've had all winter is 4" and it rained all day yesterday so it's melted already.

Miss: Hi there! I know the DH's talk us down, at least mine does. He really really (not kidding) thinks I am loopy. But that's ok, I don't mind! If he went along with all of my schemes we might be in trouble! I think your park/resort plan sound great! You guys don't overdo it, and take time to smell the roses which is great.

I sent DH my daily pix of the countdown from the WDW website...proof I haven't changed....

Ugh but I did a DIS search of BC vs. Poly....I need help

Miss M should be fine at CG...Sam was 8 the first time we went, and she really enjoyed the food and being able to see/hear wishes!!

Thanks!! We are really excited about it. The DSs and I are trying to figure out how to squeeze in as much time at SAB as we can get. Every time I log into the DIS on my Kindle, it says there's an app and asks if I want to download it. When I click that I do, it takes me to the Amazon app store and it says that it's not available. I'll just have to keep going through the web to get to it.

We had our kids at the CG this past June. They were more teenagers at 14 & 13. I believe I remember the table next to us having small children, or at least I remember seeing them near our table. It's hard to remember because if they were really there (and I'm not remembering wrong) they were super quiet. I think as long as their well behaved and you think they can find something on the menu they will eat, go for it. Especially if you make a late one, where you have a chance of being seated near the window during Wishes. We were that lucky on our visit there, and it is one of my greatest moments ever!!

Thank you!! I'll have to read that when I get back from the bank and store. The DH is making me get out in this cold weather (52 F) to run a few errands. Personally, I would still rather be in bed. Oh well, at least I was able to change my ticker to show the new arrival date.

We ended up with about 28 inches. All plowed out kids actually had school today since we only have 2 schools in town easier clean up. All the local towns are still off. Kids were disappointed but less time to make up at the end of year so they can get to camp as soon as school ends.

So I changed my ressie this am again. My BFF had points at AKL so we are doing a studio savanna view for 4 nights then 4 nights YC CL.
Kids will be psyched to be at the same hotel. And now can not make any changes because of the points are not changeable
Excited because I always wanted to try AK and now bet to spend time with BFF
