Cat and MOUSE

We booked our reservations this week for the Happiest Place on Earth, Disney World. LP and I debated about going there, it's such a scam, you pay so much and then are expected to shell out more when you get there. I just hope my kids have fun. They are little daredevils, and I'm not quite sure if Dumbo's ride is going to appease their daredevilness. But I'm sure the magic will all hit us when we get there, right?

We are going the first week in May, and we are DRIVING! Yikes. We are stopping in Destin to visit a friend of mine who lives there, so that will break it up a little. I am looking forward to it, after the year we've had, it'll be nice to get away.

The next few weeks will be hell on wheels. In a nutshell!!!:

Next week: 2 soccer games, internship, Father/Daughter Dance, Disney on Ice, (again, there goes my $$$$!) root canal!
March 13-19: Shawn's surgery (that's the big one), dance, swim lessons, more soccer games, internship, Rug's circus performance

Definitely in need of a vacation. Not that I think DW will be a 'vacation' more like a 'marathon'. But won't it be worth it when Rug and Al meet Cinderella?

I'd pay all the money in the world to see them smile.

Fortunately for me it's gonna be a little cheaper than that.

Not much though!!!

Oh wow, Vajana, that DOES sound like a good time. We haven't taken our kids to WDW yet (we did Sea World two years ago, though), but I'm sure the sight of that big old castle and Cinderella will all be worth it.

For Punkin's fourth birthday, a good friend of ours ("Our Erika") has a cousin who, at the time, worked at WDW as Cinderella. Erika, had her cousin send an autographed picture to Punkin. The picture was free, but I spent three times as much as I normally would have on a really pretty frame for the picture. It was worth it. Punkin was in heaven.

You can not deny the power of the Princesses. :)

You have yourselves a really great time!

I'd love to go someplace warm and toasty... hey, can we come with? :)

ooh what a good deal--I certainly don't have that much pull in the Cinderella!

The other day my 5-year-old came up to me and said, "Is the Cinderella at Disney World real or just someone dressed up?" I said, "I don't know, you think they'd build that castle for nothing?" And she slapped her head and said, "See? I knew it. I just knew that had to be her."

Talk about making your heart melt.

Awww, V, that is the greatest little story! Kids say the coolest things sometimes, don't they?
