    Thanks so much! I have to say most of my organising came before I had total mind block! I can't think straight just now, and talented I think not! All I did with the T-shirts is print and iron! Very creative person whom I now think of as a friend did the hard bit!
    I can't wait for MVMCP - forget the cookies hot choc for the kids I WANT it!!!!:gy:

    Thanks hun!

    At the minute I'm not sleeping too well I keep waking up remembering things but then through the day I seem to have a head like mince and can't think what I should be doing!:shocked025:

    Thanks hun! Neither can I! I plan on taking hundreds if not thousands of pictures and I'm sure a fair few of them will be Christmas ones!!:p015:
    Good luck with the exams hunni I'm sure you will do great!!!;)

    careen careen careen.................

    its almost time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i remember exactly how i felt 2 yrs ago and i dont think i could talk.....

    and i dare not tell you what i was like when i came home... only that i was on a high for 6 months and only after that could i entertain having a normal conversation which didnt have anything to do with disney or florida!!!!

    you paddy and the boys will have the times of your lifes, especially since you have planned it so well.

    i wish you an amazing time and cant wait to hear how you all get on xx

    christmas is a special time in disney!!!!

I have been ironing ironing and ironing this week! Kids were off on inservice days Monday and Tuesday so its been hard work with them around!

    Part 19 – 19th November 2008

    Well we are now down to 4 sleeps to go!

    I am going through a huge range of feelings, excitement being the biggest! But I am also nervous, worried, stressed, I think you all get it!

    The kids were off on inservice days on Monday and Tuesday and it was hard work trying to get all the ironing done and sort things out while they were around with constant interruptions! But they finally went back to school today and it was just slightly easier trying to get packing done with just Aaron around!

    Ok so remember my dilemma about how we were going to fit all 6 of us plus luggage into a Vauxhall Zafira?
    Well after yet another trial run there was absolutely no way we could get us all in to the car safely without taking next to nothing with us so my very lovely favourite kind Uncle has offered to drive down in our other car so he can take Mum and one of the kids and we will have two boots for luggage! Whoohoo! Crisis averted!

    So with that in mind we are now taking two suitcases ( which aren’t even full but are nearly at the maximum 23kg weight allowance), Once half empty holdall, and another small holdall which will be full inside a larger holdall plus Mum’s holdall! SO think that will be plenty of space for all our souviniers – hopefully!

    Anyway apart from panicking and packing I haven’t been up to much exciting really! I will post some pictures of the kids goody bags though. Mum, My Stepdad and my little sister and Nephew are coming over on Sat night. We’re going to have a takeaway and watch x factor and I’m going to give them their goody bags then along with Paddy getting his ticket for Richard Petty! Can’t wait to see what they think!

    Anyhow here are the pics cos I know how you all love some pictures!

    SO that’s it for now folks will try to get back on again and wave bye bye to everyone before we go!

    Ah Carreen!!! They look fab, bet your mother's getting super excited too!

    I'm really excited for you and like Claire said you're all going to have the time of your lives!! It's one of my most memorable things from when I was little, going to Disney, the boys'll never forget it and you'll all have a soft spot for it forever (I have anyway) :) Speak to you before you go :wavehands::hug2:

    Carreen,

    Just wanted to say that I hope you have a fantastic holiday. I know I'm a bit early but not sure that I will get on much over the weekend.
    :wavehands::wiggle::wavehands::wiggle::wavehands::wiggle::wavehands::wiggle:

    Not wanting to wish your holiday away but I'll look forward to hearing all about it when you get back, with loads of photos.

    Have fun!

    Tracey

    Part 20 - Saturday 22nd November 2008


    Well this is it guys! The time has finally came its the "night before the night before!":thumbsup:

    I have been cleaning and packing all day long and managed to make a quick trip into town for last minute bits and bobs!

    Mum and everyone is coming round tonight for a takeaway and xfactor and I'm going to give them their goody bags so just thought I would pop on quickly and say a massive THANK-YOU for following me through this magical adventure that is my Pre-Trip report! I hope to be able to get the actual trippie quite soon after we get back but as there is only a few weeks until Christmas and I have still to do almost ALL of my Crimbo shopping I might not get a chance to do it so bare with me!!!

    We're leaving a couple of hours earlier than first thought tomorrow as my Uncle will still have to travel back up to Scotland on his own and as there is forecast for snow we don't want him to be going back up to late!

    So its a :wave::wavehands::wave::wavehands::wave::wavehands: from me!

    And see you all when we get back!!!

    Love and hugs
    Carreen
