Disney-Land!


If you haven't been to Disneyland at Halloween time...you really must add it to your To-Do list.  It is quite magical.  This year we splurged and went to 'Mickey's Halloween Party'.  It did not disappoint.  The kids dressed up in their costumes and we got enough candy to get us through until Christmas.

The kids well....they couldn't have been happier!


We brought Grandma Marilyn and Grandpa Scott along with us this time.  We had a BLAST!


I think NOW...they truly understand...just how obsessed I am with Disneyland.  They might have just seen me in a whole new light! {And I don't know if that's good? or bad?}

We saw our fair share of PRINCESSES. {It was London's motivation to get quickly potty trained.} The bribery paid off! She had NOT ONE accident the ENTIRE trip.  Woo to the Hoo!


'The Slippy' was a huge hit with Ariel.  



London was SO glad to drag that blankie ALL OVER the park.  She now thinks of it as EVEN MORE magical. If that's possible?  {I'm pretty sure if she had to choose between ME and THE SLIPPY....THE SLIPPY would win}.

We only had TEARS a couple of times.


#1: Waiting in line for the new Little Mermaid ride.  Carson was afraid that it would be TOO GIRLY!  He was afraid it just might ruin his masculinity.  He even cried out a booger he was so upset {see above}.  Proud to say...he actually ENJOYED it.  And wanted to ride it AGAIN.

#2 crying incident:  Waiting in line to ride Indiana Jones with Grant.  He was FINALLY tall enough and by darn....we were making him ride that ride whether he liked it or not.  And guess what?  Even with the 'scary snake', the boulder and all the spiders in the dark....HE LOVED IT!  Phew!

Another highlight of our trip was seeing these two fabulous ladies:

Joe's cute cousins:  Jane and Aileen
I only wish we would have been able to spend MORE time with them.  Some day ladies!

We ate a lot.  Laughed a lot.  Walked a lot.  And had a BALL!  



And London was on CLOUD 9 the ENTIRE time.  It was a trip well worth the money. {Smile!}  Nothing like making Disneyland memories with the family. They are some of my favorite!

  2. Love London's hair in the last photo, Priceless! Belle is just about to spill out of her princess dress. I guess she is trying to get the boys to think princesses (princi hmmm?)are cool. That'll do it.
