5 Days to go!

Just about there, and the kids are as excited as ever.  Tomorrow night we'll meet with our MAW volunteer and get all the paperwork.  We keep saying we're going to start setting aside clothes to pack, but somehow it just doesn't get done.  I can see already we'll be up at 4:00 still trying to cram stuff into a suitcase!

Getting close!

We got the Disney vacation planning DVD in the mail today and watched it twice before dinner!  The kids are excited of course, but Jason freaked out over the 5-10 seconds of video of the Haunted Mansion.  Man up, kid - you're riding it.

It must be getting close!  We got our map/brochure from GKTW today!  Sifting through the mail: bill, bill, bill, EOB, EOB - Kayla got a big envelope, where's that refund check from Duke?  Wait.  Kayla got a big envelope?  OOHHH!!!!!!

Testing testing, 1, 2, 3...

Chose this one off my phone while testing the email blog post.  Emily is minus her glasses, but Kayla is alert and happy after a long nap.  Yay Princesses!

Planning and data-mining

I've been hanging out on DISboards.com where there is a thread (several actually) dedicated to MAW trips.  Many helpful tips there and good info about Give Kids the World Village.  The various trip reports there have been even more informative.  Things like the fact that GKTW is a gated resort and the guard shack is not staffed 24/7.  Nice tidbit to know, and I'll be sure not to get the van stuck between the gates.  And I will not leave home without my Bunny Book.  Can I get that in PDF for my phone and nook?
