    It sounds like you have been busy, but for all good reasons! ;)

    Your upcoming trip sounds fun! It will be quite different than your solo touring, but in a good way!

    We will surely be able to make a meet work, even if it has to be a quick one! I will PM you closer to trip time when I know more about what we're doing that day around the park :dogdance::dogdance:

    No worries, we all understand life getting in the way of keeping caught up. You certainly have a lot on your plate. I'm sure you are looking forward to some family time, especially since that will include Disney time.

    :woohoo:

    Sounds like all really GOOD busy-ness!!! A Christmas trip with small children is just going to be sooo magical!! I am planning our January (runDisney) trip for my Dad (who hasn't been in 20+ years) and his wife (who's never been) and it makes me feel like a kid on Christmas morning to see their expressions! I can only imagine how magical it will be with little ones.

    Those sound like all good reasons to fall behind!

    Awesome.

    What?!?! I don't understand the words you are say. only 2 days out of a whole week there? Crazy talk!

    That will def make the trip magical.

    Too Cute!

    I knew you would! How did your exam go?!

    ;)

    Yes! :laughing:

    That would be wonderful! Let's PM when our trips get closer :thumbsup2

    Thank you! It really does feel like that! :laughing:

    Thank you so much :goodvibes

    Good call, it never hurts to look!

    I will! I did go a couple times in August, but my cheeseburger pods left a little to be desired - maybe I got an off night? But breakfast was amazing!!! I forgot to try the Night Blossom though, have you had that?

    Ugh, yes, I'm hoping we work something out, too! ::yes::

    True! :thumbsup2

    Thank you! I'm so looking forward to it, and yes... quite different than my solo time, but in a good way :wizard:

    YES!!! Sounds like a plan :thumbsup2

    Thank you :goodvibes Yes, I really am looking forward to lots of family time... even if it's only a little bit of Disney time :laughing:

    :hug:

    You're absolutely right! Because it's post-Christmas, I always forget all the beautiful decorations will still be up! :wizard: Wow! Your trip sounds amazing - it really is so special to see Disney through the eyes of newbies (or someone who hasn't been in 20+ years!). I'm so excited for you!!!

    ;)

    I would love that! :thumbsup2

    I think you're right ;)

    I know. I knew you wouldn't understand :rotfl:

    I completely agree :goodvibes

    Thanks! He's just the happiest little boy... I cannot wait to get him back to Disney! His love for Disney is catching up to mine ;)

    Well...it's over, so there's that. :P It wasn't terrible or anything. I didn't even need to pass it to pass the course, so I'm not concerned. I'd just obviously like to do as well as possible.

    Yes! ::yes::

    Enjoy your time with your sister and all your family over the Holidays.

    It also sounds like your personal life is maybe heating up!:thumbsup2

    After you described it earlier I'm shocked you are here at all!!!! I got my MBA a while back while working full time and I can attest it was not fun.

    I won't pry but :love::love::love::love::love:

    I had no idea you had another trip on the horizon. Huge group or not Tracy is going to Disney World!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Great pooper picture :-) And in the defense of your family just because you don't have Disney gear doesn't mean you don't love it (says the woman who has next to none)

    :scared1::scared1::scared1: Any chance you can escape the family for a bit for some solo time?

    Oh, what do we have here...??:rolleyes1
    Someone with whom you can share a rider swap pass with? :)

    Haha, anything more than 2 people is a challenge...

    What!!??! That must be rectified soon...maybe you can gift them some Disney t-shirts for x-mas? LOL.

    Aww so cute.

    It's so good! I love it so much! :lovestruc

    Thank you so much! :goodvibes

    :rolleyes1 :laughing:

    It isn't, is it?! Was that pre-Casey?! Because I can't imagine also being a mother AND working full time AND going to school! Either way, go you :thumbsup2

    ::yes::

    She is!!!!!!! Yippeeeeee! :hyper:

    This is very true! ;)

    We shall see... might have to see what I can do ;)

    Time will tell... :rolleyes1 :laughing:

    I agree! :laughing:

    I think that's a great idea! I'd considered matching custom shirts but we'll have to see about that level of intensity :rotfl:

    Isn't he?! :lovestruc

    Yes, way before Casey (and Jason for that matter). No way I could have done it otherwise

    I've only been the one time and had a chicken bowl, which was amazing. I've seen kind of mixed reviews on the cheeseburger pods. Didn't have the Night Blossom...

    Hi, Tracy. I am continually falling behind here too, but sounds like you've had better reasons than I have. :laughing: Glad to hear things seem to be going well and that you will be at WDW so soon!

    If I miss a day or two of the Dis, I'm inevitably horribly behind, it doesn't take long :laughing:

    Thank you! Yes, I cannot believe my trip is so close... :hyper:
