We also made a count down chain at the beginning of the month and Kylee thought it was way too long. She has been shocked at how quickly it is coming to and end though and diligently rips one off each morning on her way out the door for school. Alexis is busy naming each one of the princesses and continually talks about how she is going to get hugs and sit on their laps. Kylee is the most excited to see her cousin Easton who she hasn't seen in 2 years and Skylar can't wait to try out every ride possible in the quickest amount of time as he works on mapping out the parks. On the other hand, I am about to approach my week of planning out every little thing everyone is going to need and figuring out the necessary entertainment for our 12 hour car ride. The excitement leading up to it is almost as fun as the trip or at least helps cushion the cost!!!! We've decided to splurge and finally take a real family vacation that is going to cost us some serious cash but know it will be well worth it. No matter what the age DISNEY ALWAYS FEELS SO MAGICAL!!! If any of you have any tips on the order to do things in or stuff to be sure and see in the parks send them our way. We are eagerly anticipating Saturday when we will hit the road.

"Mom, What JOB can I do today?!"
6 days to go and counting... The girls are in a total count down mode for Disney and my little plan has worked like a charm! It is often like pulling teeth around here to get any help so the girls decorated Disney containers a few weeks ago and we told them they could earn money to buy their own souvenirs at DISNEY! Kylee thought this was awesome and it is now very common on a daily basis to here, "MOM, WHAT JOB CAN I DO TODAY?!" I was the happiest lady around for awhile but now I'm trying to use it to stop whining, arguing and even homework...I guess I've pushed it a little too far. I should just be happy that the dish washer gets unloaded when I ask, laundry gets put away, dishes are cleared, beds are attempted to be made and I'm left trying to come up with little jobs I can give Kylee...may this continue forever!!!!! You'd think our house was spotless but some how it still looks like a pig sty.
