It's SANTA!! Ho Ho Ho

Yup, we got a crier! You always see hilarious pictures of the kids who didn't want to sit on Santa's lap on TV or online. Well, we now have our very own!! We LOVE it! But I do have to admit that while we were up there trying to get a picture, I was saying a little prayer, "please, I don't want a crying picture!!" I think the gentleman behind us could sense this for he made a comment that they have one and it was their most memoriable picture taken with Santa. So I decided to go for it and then the special moment in time was captured...forever!

We are a little behind this year for Christmas for we have so much going on, but hopefully we will actually get Christmas cards out this year! LOL...please note our address change for those who want to send us one! wink wink ;) If you need it again let us know via email and we'll send it!

We really want to say how much we love and appreciate all of you friends and family. We feel so blessed to have you in our lives!

Happy Birthday Donnie!! Our first day!

It was Donnie's 28th birthday the day we arrived! So we celebrated in Disney style by going to Chef Mickey's. Donnie was so happy to get his picture with Donald Duck on his Bday!
After breakfast was done, the staff and characters did a big announcement and then started singing a celebration song for his birthday. They brought over a cupcake with a candle in it! It was so cute. Pluto came over during the song and danced all around Donnie.

Donnie cheering for his own bday song!
The restaurant Chef Mickeys gave Donnie and Autographed placemat for his Birthday! Donnie had a blast. He deserved it!

Yummy cupcake!

Bryce getting a hug from Mickey Mouse!

Aw Pluto is giving Emma a lick on the cheek.
Bryce is being shy around Donald Duck!

Hey...! Where's Emma?

Hi Mickey!!

Sure Goofy...we can fit you and Bryce in the shot!!

Ahhhhh, Shucks!

Shhhhh, don't tell Mickey!

Emma loves to dance with Mickey, It worked out just right for Bryce was taking so much of Minnie's time!

We went to Magic Kingdom after breakfast and their was a live show as soon as we got there, so perfect timing! It was cute and Emma really wanted to see it. Bryce was out in the stroller before we even arrived!

Emma loves to ride the Carousel!

It was her first ride at Walt Disney world!
We enjoyed our first day but tried to cut it short for we all were soooooo tired from not sleeping on the plane. We went back and enjoyed dinner at the resort and slepted in the next morning!

First flight for Bryce!

So our flight wasn't to bad, we had just made the flight so no waiting at the airport for us! But when we flying over the east coast we saw some action of Hurricane Fay. The picture above is us flying over lightning! Makes a cool picture if you can catch it, but unnerving to fly over! lol
Donnie said this was his first long flight and as for Bryce, it's his first ever. He did GREAT!!! No crying because of ear pain on the way to Florida but a little on the way back.

Emma was soooooo excited to go on our trip. She kept telling our friend Travis about going (he was taking us to the airport...Thank you Travis and your family for everything!). We put on some princess pajamas for the late night flight. She stayed up till about 2 am then crashed just for us to wake her up 3 hours later to get off the plane!
The flight back was pretty good too, a little bumping. And I think the kid that threw up in front of Donnie during the landing would agree with my statements here! Poor kid! Thanks Jeni for the pick up! Traffic was so bad at the airport it took her almost an hour to lope around twice!

Princess Emma!!

Emma is princess for the day in Disney World! It was an amazing experience to share with her. Outside the Castle was the Fairy Godmother in a meet and greet setting, but they had cut off the line and told everyone to come back at 1:15. I was bummed because the Fairy Godmother is one of Emma's favorite parts of the movie. I had mentioned that we would not be able to come back then for we had an appointment at the Biddi Boddi Bo Botique, the Fairy Godmother then reached her arms out for Emma....took a picture and asked if she would like for her to walk her to the Castle where the Botique was! How exciting...Emma said yes and off they went. It brought tears to my eyes...once they arrived to the Botique She very loudly announced that "Princess Emma has arrived" and then continued to talk with her, hug her and Emma danced for her!!

The Fairy Godmother! Isn't she pretty!!

Emma is dancing for her inside the Botique.

Emma doesn't like her hair done, so they had 2 workers helping her out. One was reading princess stories while the other was doing her hair.
Almost Done!! Makeup and glitter time is next!!!

It is so amazing how great they are with kids. Emma never made eye contact with her nor did she really answer any questions, but the Fairy Godmother was so sweet to her!

After she was all done in the botique we went on a quick ride, (its a Small World after all!)
and then she had lunch with the princess's! Those pics on next posting!
