    Less than 24 hours!!!!

    The kids are still sleeping, they were up late last night charging ipods and deciding which books to bring on the plane. I'm doing a bit of packing...Jon brought me a Dunkin Donuts iced coffee this morning so I'm running on high this morning. Ten a.m. training session with Cliff today, so I guess that's a good thing!

    I introduced Baleigh to the MAGIC of the "clothes shaver" last night You know those little handheld thingies that shave off all the little "pills" that form on clothes? Yep, that's the thingie. She thinks I'm the smartest person in the world now...and her favorite shirt looks brand new

    On some level, I feel like I'm not packing as much *stuff* as I typically do. I keep looking around wondering if I'm forgetting something, but everything *seems* to be here...including the FOUR pairs of ears Baleigh INSISTS on bringing with her Seriously? She only has ONE head.

    AND she's been bitten by the pin bug yet again, so most of her evening last night was spent sorting through the HUNDREDS of pins that had been tucked away in our Disney box for the past few years, she even roped Andrew into it. In the end, she discovered it would be harder than she thought to find ones she'd be willing to trade. She finally wandered into my room and asked me to come sit with her for a few minutes and help her decide. Just on the verge of saying, "Seriously? No. Are you kidding me? Our bags aren't even packed!!" I somehow managed to remember that this was OUR vacation and the very reason we were taking it was staring me in the face and asking me to spend a few minutes with her. So I put the clothes shaver down and followed her into the dining room which was now more of a land mine. We sifted through years of pins. It was like a time line of my children's life...from Baleigh's princess phase to her Tinkerbell obsession, to her Hannah Montana/Kim Possible years. Then there were Andrew's...Diamond Horseshoe Saloon, Stitch, Pirates. They were all there, reminding me just how quickly the years go by, and how blessed I've been to be able to give them something I never had. There were also pins from friends over the years. I was truly amazed by how they could both recall exactly who had given them each one. We finally carved out a few they were willing to part with, and we picked them all back up and packed them away. I went back to my packing smiling and happy to be reminded just what it is I am packing for. Even Pal Mickey is making an appearance this trip.

    So, things are in a suitcase. I've planned a trip to Target this morning after the gym to pick up the last few items...the house is clean...and I've got a mani/pedi appointment this afternoon.

    Because *I* am going to Disney World with my kids!

    Leaky warnings indeed! Jon has been making fun of me all morning! (serves him right that I made him go clean the kitchen :rollingpin: )

    OOOH!! Turtle hatchlings!! GOOD LUCK!!! Maybe this will be the year

    I am making a decided effort to enjoy this trip. It's one of our rare trips "alone" (not that we will even REMOTELY be alone, actually :wink: ) But since Jon won't be joining us, it will give the three of us time to enjoy "just us" like we used to.

    I cannot wait to see you and 'lets!!! We are going to have the bestest time ever!!!

    Can you tell I'm excited?? I haven't even had any coffee

    She has to have all the ears to go with the different moods.....and of course she needs to bring the ones that she designed herself that cost a billion dollars.....DUH mom..really

    I told Alysia that I knew she and Justin would be off doing their own thing but could she please make sure to include Baleigh and Andrew (of course she will but I'm a mom and have to reinforce good manners)....she gets all silent and says, "but I thought we'd mostly be hanging out with you" awwwww made me all leaky too
