Have a great Monday, hope you have all dug out of the snow and are no longer stuck.

You are a true resort changer, Jen. How in the world did this evolve from camping in a tent to a hotel in Boston? Does this mean the kids get to throw out those agreements they signed?

When the Queen approves a change, you know you're OK. Actually, we could have chosen just about anything the first 3 nights. The last 5 are during the discount blackout for spring break (though AAA might be available, IDK), but I knew I could get an SOG overflow since they're full. Since it was only for 3 nights and not the whole stay, I thought that trying something new before something new might be fun and exciting

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.
I like your plan! I've been re-reading Heather's (hstrickland's) FWC and AKL/CL TRs, but I couldn't find any lounge food photos. I'll have to PM her about those...

Just a quick hello to my RC family

Looking quickly I see KOOK's change, have I missed anyone else's change? I know Miss booked CR. I am helplessly behind, I guess that is the price I pay for going to Disney

I am hoping to work on my TR tonight but I have some baking to catch up on, so who knows.

Miss you all!!!
Melissa

So we always eat at 50s PT when we are at HS. Thinking of changing it up a bit. It's been about 15 years since I've eaten at Sci Fi .... opinions???

We ate at Sci Fi in July, and we really liked it!!! Really yummy burgers and shakes, and the atmosphere was too cool. We would definitely eat there again.

We are actually giving 50's PT a chance in April. Hoping we like it!

You are the tallest of us Oompas. Of course, instead of Wonka, I've got the Ewok / C3PO scene in my head now.

Oh, I forgot about Wishes! Hmmm.

Melissa: Welcome back!

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

So, Miss M had a playdate here at the house yesterday. Which I had prepared for by frantically cleaning and organizing for the previous week and through the weekend. (I won't mention how it looks now. ) Miss M has never had anyone over for a playdate before; needless to say, she was excited. She woke up at 6am and graciously let mommy and daddy sleep in until 8am.


She stalked the front window most of the afternoon. When her friend arrived, they had a blast creating chaos from 2-5pm. Now, let me interject with this little tidbit: you know the type of kids who have fallen asleep during their meals or in strollers, etc? That's not Miss M. She's not had a nap since shortly after she turned 2. She does go to bed relatively early but from sunrise until then, it's motormouth and non-stop GO GO GO. So, when her friend leaves, she goes and flops on the sofa, mentions that it was the "best day of her life" and then yawns. Shortly thereafter, she didn't want to eat her dinner (pasta with marinara, which is like totally not like her to turn down any meal containing any variation of noodles) and says she wants to go to bed. This was the immediate expression on hubs' and my faces followed by: She was in bed by 6:15. I warned hubs she'd be up early.


We go to bed at 1am -- like total idiots -- and get woken up by the overhead light being turned on at 3:30am and what appeared to be a blurry version of my child sticking her finger on her front tooth whilst saying something I couldn't understand until my brain kicked into "barely functioning" mode and I took my earplugs out. She had chosen that very-appropriate hour to show us her loose front tooth.

She had gotten her 9 hours and it was time for show and tell! Great story and great memory, thanks for sharing it with us and giving me a good story to tell at dinner

Miss~that was hilarious. You will remember that one for a long time, just like I remember a time we were back home and J was little- it was the summer Cars came out. We had been at Lake Michigan all day, DH and B went somewhere, we went to McDonalds, bounced the ball in the driveway and J is like I'm tired..it's 6:30. I get him in bed, set the cd cars up and he is out by the first song!! Lucky for us, he did not get up at 3am!!

I love that we are discussing our 2014 vacation plans in our house right now....and those plans are all of a sudden very Disney-centric and will probably involve the renewal of our annual passes.....

My DH won't admit it, but he's not ready for the world outside of the WORLD just yet.

I think it's because he travels enough for work and Disney is just our happy place....but these talks make me happy.....

Miss, this made me burst out laughing!! LOVE IT!!

I love that you organized and cleaned for a week prior to the play date ... it reminded me of a time long ago when my DS years announced he wanted to have this 2 friends over... he hemmed a bit before saying to me "mom, can you clean up the house before they come over?" that he was questioning my housekeeping skills was a little jolt but ... he happened to be right on with his assessment

You do the baking, and I'll take care of the dishes and the eating.

Sweet!! I wish I could get my DH to think about Disney like that. I'll just have to be happy with him being "obsessed" with going to WDW this year.

As far as vacation next year, I am thinking Gettysburg and maybe Hersey. My DH is a huge history buff, especially Civil War history. I had thought about going this summer, but with the 150th anniversary being this summer, I assume it'll be busier. I think it'll be a nice treat, since he's letting me do WDW two years in a row. Plus we have some friends that live not too far from there, who we used to play WoW with. The wife has been asking that we come up and spend time with them.

Wookie- I'm working on the framework of our June/July Disney trip. Since this is part of a summer vacation it takes on extra things. So, the first stop is Gettysburg and the second stop is the Charleston
