Our 10-day date fell on this past Monday! With the time changing over the weekend, we were all pretty tired and draggy (this time change ALWAYS does that to me!). Can’t believe this was our final “set of 10” countdown night!!

First up? Change the refrigerator calendar, of course!!



Then, it was off to put up the countdown square before work!



How many days is it??



Of course, Daddy needs to be in a pic too!



After a great day of work, we were all ready to crash. No big plans for tonight—we just had hot dogs and chili, and D had chicken and fries!

My little guy was so excited to celebrate 10 days!!



Now, we are in the single digits and I am SO excited!!!

Now you have entered my favorite part of the pre-vacation. During this time I love to start thinking about how this time next week I will be doing "x". This is when it really starts to feel attainable. I am so excited for you!!

I did a project for work this week that no one else wanted to do. So my awesome boss told me I could use it to take time off sometime. She said, "in fact, don't you want to leave early for Disney? You could leave half a day Wednesday." I laughed about it with Brian, and we knew we couldn't do it because he had review meetings that day. That was Wednesday night.

Yesterday morning, Bri calls me at work and tells me they moved the reviews to today, and now we are leaving for the trip on WEDNESDAY AT LUNCH!!!!!

We are going to stay at the Doubletree on Wednesday night (in DTD) since we won't get there until 10 pm or so. We've never done the "drive during the day" thing, so I hope it works out, but I am SO excited!!!!
on getting to WDW early!
my tips on driving during the day....bring LOTS of snacks for D, maybe a couple "new" little things...do you have a DVD player? movies will keep him occupied, his favorite snuggle buddy, blanket for napping in the car!

love your 10 day countdown photos, you all look so excited

thanks for the good luck on swimsuit shopping, ya its not a favorite of ours either her BFF will be with us too so hopefully that will help with the decision making!

have a wonderful weekend!!!

we found a swimsuit not exactly what she wanted, but it fit good and she was happy with it!

wow 42 bajillion, that's a lot of movies I learned the trip tips early on with megan since we flew so much, would keep back a couple small toys from xmas or bdays or get something from the $ store and wrap them up for the trips!

Congrats on leaving early! You will like the doubletree. We always stay there our first night since we drive during the day. They have an awesome breakfast buffet.

Yes, 42 bajillion!! I do that "keep stuff back" thing too. I have been told that Mickey will deliver a package for D on Tuesday night with some trip stuff for Wednesday! So glad you found a swimsuit!!

It's funny--I had never thought about staying there, etc, until I read your PTR. See, we learn SO much from the DIS!! So glad you mentioned the breakfast buffet. . .I wasn't sure if they had breakfast there or not. Is it in the restaurant? Do you remember about how much it was per person? I just like to have it all divided out before we go!

I'm sure you have them in alphabetical order too :

that Mickey sure it a nice guy knows how to keep his little buddies happy!

not as glad as I am! she's so hard to fit with them anymore...although only almost 13 she doesn't fit it most of the juniors styles, not quite what she was hoping for but when you're shopping for suits in March you have to take what you can get

have fun this weekend getting everything together! its almost time to go to WDW

The breakfast is in the restaurant and it is a full breakfast buffet including omelet stations and waffle bar. The cost is $17.95 for adult and children eat free.

I am the same way about having everything divided out

D & I wore some St. Patrick's Day stuff to school on Friday. . .you know, you just have to work that in when it lands on a weekend! As we were taking pics, I realized that since we had added a night, it was alsou our FIVE DAY COUNTDOWN!!! So, here we are putting up the square!:


(we're on the bottom row now!! )

My little man. . .definitely LUCKY to have him!



A picture together. . .when I saw my mom later that day, she said, "You ARE aware the nothing you have on matches, right? I said, 'yep, got that!'"

Yesterday, we did all of our packing, except the toiletries and stuff that we will use before we go! Thank goodness I had made lots of lists beforehand, because my brain was scattered yesterday, and I couldn't think! It took us about 2 1/2 hours to pack:

The Land Part:



The Cruise Part:



And the bored little boy who did not like that packing took as long as it did!



On today's agenda? Getting D a haircut, a St. Patty's day lunch celebration, and getting the rest of the pre-trip cleaning done! Better get to it!!
