Thank you.

I know, there has been so many threads over the last week or so about ESTA's with people saying they have only just done them and not included middle names and people saying they have done theirs recently and travelled on them fine.

Assorted Updates

Another massive gap between updates so here are a few:

Autograph Books

We had nothing planned for the afternoon quite a few Sunday's ago and it was raining, so Madison and Kaley asked if they could make their autograph books. We got the books we had bought a few weeks ago from WH Smiths, which were (I think) 4.99 each

Along with the sharpies

And all the stickers I still had leftover from my holiday scrapbooking

I had them write the names of the characters they wanted to do on post its, then had them both stick them in the books in alphabetical order


They had already made lists before doing the post its. They then went through each page and wrote the characters name on the relevant page

After a break for dinner and showers, they then got on with choosing stickers for each page


It didn't take them too long to get this all done and they were soon finished


The only pages we couldn't do were Eeyore and Piglet as we didn't have any stickers with these characters on. I'm hoping I'll be able to pick some up cheaply enough online.

Reveal

I think I promised the reveal of how we told the girls about the holiday ages ago.

How we told the girls was all Phil's idea. He spent some time putting together a quiz, with each correct answer having a picture next to it. They then needed to use a cypher to work out which letter each picture answer was. It also told them where to put the correct letter in the grid they had.

Here's a couple of the question sheets

There were 23 questions in total.

They took it in turns answering them, then using the cypher to see what letter they needed and where it needed to go in their grid. As you can see, Phil hadn't left any spaces on the grid so it wasn't immediately obvious to them what words were being spelled out.

Once they had answered all the questions and had all the letters in the grid, we asked them what it said. It took Madison a couple of attempts and then she read it out

And then seemed to realise what she had just said

They were both so excited and wanted to know where, when, who else, etc.



Sorry it has taken so long to share this, we did this not long after booking last year, so probably late April, early May!

Shopping

It's July and this is my first shopping update, which is so unlike me!

We have bought the girls some clothes recently, I will share these soon, but for now it just a couple of Disney books:
Brit's Guide 2019

I absolutely do not need this but I have a copy of this book for every year that I have been so couldn't not get it.
Disney World Hacks

I probably didnt need this either but liked the look of it and we have the other books from the same author. What I have read so far is good and there have been some tips I have made a note of already.

Just a selection of the Disney books we have


Car Hire

I hadn't checked the price of my car hire in a while as the price had still been high but I had a look on Friday and the price was less than what I had paid back in November.

It wasn't a huge amount, I had paid 399.90 and it was 392.63 so I modified my booking and saved myself 7.27. Now that the price has come down, I will keep checking every day in case it comes down more.

Update, I looked again today and it was now 390.44 so I modified my booking again and saved another 2.19.

Fast Pass day is in three weeks so we made a start this morning and hope to carry on this week in getting a plan together of which we are going to get.

I love the girls' autograph books, and love that they made them! I didn't realise you'd bought the Brits guide!

Fingers crossed for fast pass day! x
