You are never too old for Disney!!

My wonderful 11 year old (almost 12 year old) son, Xander, was having a conversation with my mom about our next Disney trip. We were talking about resorts and such when my mom said in a joking tone "Xander, aren't you too old for Disney anyway?" Xander looks at me and says "you are never too old for Disney." It is so great that my kids have the Disney joy in their hearts, even when they are pre-teen boys and its not really that cool!

7 Months until our Disney vacation

Yesterday marked 7 months until our Disney vacation!! :) I decided to make this the first month of our countdown gifts. Instead of something we could use for the trip I decided to buy the kids each a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter, icing, and some sugar cookie dough to have fun with and get them excited for the trip. They were so excited so the gift must have been a hit.

I purchased the red icing on Targets clearance rack for $1.44 each.
I purchased the Mickey cookie cutters on eBay from the seller Marshotel 
for $4.99 each and a total of $3 shipping.
The cookie dough was purchased at our local Meijer for about $1.50 each.

Total for this gift is approximately $19

No gifts for adults (myself and my mother) this time.

We plan on making our cookies this weekend along with some Mickey shaped pancakes. Pictures will follow.  I saved my Mickey/Minnie gift bags to reuse for the next months gift.
