    woohoo just got an email back from the man I spoke with on the phone and they will give us the extra passes for Lexie and Ethan so although that means we arent flying still gonna be able to save some money by driving rather than having to buy 2 airline tix for the extra 2 kids and 2 of the passes so this is shaping up to be GREAT Saves them money on the prize too lol He said the lady from the wonertime magazine would be phoning soon to finalize everything else

    WOW!! Congrats to your family!! I hope you all have the time of your life and take lots of pics..lol. And that is awsome they are giving you the free passes also..and you know, sometimes I am happier to drive somehwere than to fly..don't have to worry about missing flights or worse..delays, or cancelations. How far a drive will it be for you all??

    well we typed it in on the map quest site and says something like 16 hours SO hubby says maybe wait till early spring (have to go before March 1, 2009) that way he will have more vacation time from work and we can stop and stay somewhere on the way and do something there so we arent in the car for so long

    Got papers yesterday but didn't have the changes on their so I phoned and left a message with yet another person (who is now handling things) she phoned back just a few minutes ago and said she saw the request but has no proof it was okayed and was NOT changed in the contract AND she told me that I would have to rent yet another room because putting the little ppl in the same room with us would put us over the limit for how many can be in the room. So NOW if I want this trip it appears I will either A) lose out on the airfare and pay for gas or B) keep the airfare and pay for another 2 tix which will cost more than I have PLUS (either way) I would have to get another room at about $100 a night she told me for value option PLUS buy the little ppl the extra passes to match the ones we are supposed to get will add to the total we are out too. I told the lady I needed to speak with my hubby because we will most likely just give up the prize because we couldnt afford it. She said she would check and around and see what she could do but she wasnt too promising so looks like my big win is a big bust. Oh yeah and she was so not very friendly I actually felt like I was wasting her time. I guess I must have been a terrible person in my previous life because Karma sure has been biting me in the butt this year lol

    I'm so glad you got that cleared up! When I read your first message about the forms not being changed, etc., I could feel my face lock up and stopped breathing for a second. I'm so happy for you....
