We are officially preparing for one of the most anticipated family vacations ever. Of course it is the first family vacation ever. In 23 days, my family, my brother and his family, and my parents are going to DISNEY WORLD! My mom started a tradition, that when each of her grand children turns 5, they are taking the whole family to see Mickey. Pretty freakin sweet deal, I think. When I was a nanny, I went to WDW with they family I worked for. I remember thinking it was TOTALLY lame. Now that I have my own child, I couldn't be more excited. Even though it is a trip for Kyree, it will still be fun for us too. I have made Nora a tutu for every day of the week. Each one represents a different princess. We have been watching on YOU TUBE, when kids meet the characters, so that she doesn't FREAK out when she meets them. So far so good. Remember when she met the Easter Bunny, not so cool. She is way past that stage though. Since she doesn't watch TV, she has no idea who Mickey is, so last week, we went to the library, and got some Disney movies, and books. She does love Pooh, and one day we are having breakfast with him and all his friends. We are also going to a "NOT SO SCARY" Halloween Party. All the characters are dressed in costumes, and all the villains come out. Nora is going as Cruelle De'Ville. Then for the "actual" birthday dinner, we are going to Mickey Mouse, Backyard BBQ. So tonight, we tie-dyed our t-shirts that we are going to wear. The kids had fun, and I was even able to relax, and let them be creative! Papa won the award for "Most Decorative", OF COURSE! He claims that he has never done tie-dye before. Whatever!
