Thanks, Lola! We really did pack a lot in (so glad we had a weekend to recover once we got back before going back to work!) but there is still so much we missed and we can't wait to get back! Can't wait to live vicariously through your trip report in a few months!

We're both doing very well, Disneydoc! Thanks for asking! Baby is right on track for size and everything looked great at our ultrasound a few weeks ago. My only real pregnancy symptom complaint right now is back pain. I've had a bad back since I was a kid, but the added weight and the fact that the little stinker loves to sit right on my tailbone isn't helping matters! laugh Loving feeling her kick and move around though and super happy that all of the morning sickness and (most of!) the food aversions are over with!

Jess just go on Allie's pregnancy blog and you will get to see her "cute" belly. Jon takes a picture every week and also he does a great blackboard to depict her pregnancy. So cute! I have to admit I check her blog every week to see how she is progressing.

I check weekly too, think the blackboard is genius and a great memory to show her when she is older.

Thanks all Smile Here's a picture from last week's belly pic (haven't gotten around to doing this week yet) in case you don't want to venture to the blog.

Lola, I echo Sally. What did you decide on for your costume and do we get to see any pictures?

Allie I do have to ask. I just made the assumption that Jon does the blackboard or is that your artwork?

You assumed absolutely correctly! I usually tell him what I want on the board, but he has way better handwriting and can draw much better then me so he has taken over the task of physically making the board each week. He's a trooper biggrin

I am just amazed at this kind of creativity. I wished I had it. My talents lie elsewhere though. Give me a piece of music and I will sing my heart out.

I hear you. DH and I are both actors/singers (I've been doing dance and theater since I was 3) in our free time and we actually met in a community theater show. I can't draw to save my life though, so I leave that up to Jon Smile

Aww that sounds adorable! We are keeping it really simple and classic - I have a kind of 50s minidress style Minnie Mouse costume and I am instructing my husband to wear something like red shorts, black tshirt, sneakers and mouse ears to be my Mickey. Always wanted to be Minnie for Halloween and this seems like my best opportunity! Laughing out loud

Sounds super cute! Easier is always better with guys' costumes. Jon didn't want to dress up either so having him in a red shirt, shorts, and a Mario hat was our compromise. Couldn't swing getting him to dress up as Prince Charming, but it was pretty warm out so he probably would have been miserable!

Sounds cool, Graham is going to wear part of his wedding outfit, to be my Prince, which will look really odd to my outfit but hey at least he is trying. We have done reinactment for a while and I used to do the Valkarie with black wig, fake blood, blood curdling scream and sharp spear, would love to do that at Disney but don't think they would allow it!

Allie, since you asked, this is my costume. I hate being too hot so thought a simple minidress would be good. I've also seen ears I really like in Claire's Accessories so might get them to go with it. I will probably wear leggings or shorts under it as I feel it might be a bit 'sexy' for Disney otherwise. Tongue

Your pregnancy board is amazing! I'm totes doing that if I ever get pregnant. Aww, was going to ask what the name options are but just read that you're keeping them a secret! Can't wait to find out! Laughing out loud

LOVE the costume, super cute! I ended up doing the same thing with my Snow White dress...the short dress kept me cool and I paired it with some leggings to keep it appropriate. Worked perfectly!

Thanks sweetie. Yeah, I saw your minidress/leggings combo (very cute!) and figured it seemed like a good option. I get to have a cute costume, stay cool and not feel too exposed. Laughing out loud

Thank you! Bought the costume four months in advance because I was so excited. It's my cousin's wedding a month before Disney, and I haven't got a dress for that yet but I've got one for MNSSHP. Clearly I have my priorities a bit messed up. Tongue

Nahhh... you can find a dress for a wedding any time, but how often do you come across the perfect Minnie dress? laugh
