Holy Crow! I'm Sparkly! Oh, It's the Pixie Dust!, An Aug '09 Pre-Trippie

The “Holy Crow! I'm Sparkly! Oh, It's the Pixie Dust!” A PTR From Someone Who Quotes Twilight, Flair, and Movies Frequently-August 26-September 5, 2009

To start off, I have written a TR one time…and I never finished it (I know BAD Dis’er!), so please be gentle with me.

OneTreeHillAddict will tell you that I tend to fall off the face of the Earth when it comes to my TR’s (I’ve only done one Disneyland TR and after 2 installments-CRASH & BURN-life got in the way and I fell off the wagon with it).

So, now I will tell you, I will try my hardest to keep up this little Pre-Trippie which, hopefully, with a little luck and a pinch of Pixie Dust, will turn into a full-fledged Trip Report, and indulge all you fellow WDW and, perhaps Disneyland, addicts with beautiful pictures and wonderful descriptions of my favorite place on Earth (as seen below)



We took this photo in January, after we renewed our AP’s.

So, folks, on with the Show…

First and foremost, I guess I will start out introducing me and my brood:

This is Me (disneyquilter aka Christine) & DH (Kevin):



I am the narrator to this little escapade we will be embarking on, as well as a wife, mother. I love all things Disney & Twilight (yes, I am one of those Twilight Moms), soccer, great music (I love playlists and think EVERYONE’S life needs to have its own soundtrack), and I am a total movie nut.

He is a loving father, terrific husband, loves Disney (maybe more then me), soccer, and is a total movie nut #2. You will notice, he LOVES his ‘coon skin cap from Frontierland.


Next up, DD#1…we’ll just call her Bella (another Twilight fanatic, hence, the throwback to Bella):


She LOVES Disney more then DH and I put together. She is obsessed and the older she gets, the more the love grows. She adores the Twilight books by Stephenie Meyer amongst Kingdom Keepers and other various books, another great music lover (Loves Jack’s Mannequin), and movie nut #3. Sprinkle her love for soccer in here and you have my DD#1.

Last, but definitely not least, is DD#2. She actually has a nickname. We call her Bean:


She is my fun-loving Disney freak #4. She loves soccer, first and foremost and swears she is the next Mia Hamm, and then comes her love for all things Disney.

We live about 15 minutes from Uncle Walt’s Original Mouse House, so periodically, you will see most of my PTR photos in front of Disneyland. We go weekly, but I don’t always take the camera. These pictures in my intro are all from our January 2009, all-day trip.

Here is a couple more:


Partners Statue (my DH acting goofy in the background—I didn’t realize it till after I went home and uploaded the photos-LOL)


Matterhorn


Here’s one more of our fam together trying to take a self portrait:

OK, so you may be asking yourself, what’s up with the title? I am a huge fan of all the Twilight books, Facebook, and the DisBoards. This title is a total throwback to all the things I love about Facebook & Twilight: Twilight Flair. I love it and I spread it around to my family members & friends on a constant basis. So, what’s a trip report without Twilight Flair? It just isn’t one.

More to come later, like eating habits & where we will be staying and this kooky little adventure we’re about to embark on.

Just figured out this multi-quote thing...okay, so I talked to Kevin last night and he just laughed and said, "Let's talk about it over the weekend". Cross your fingers girl!! I so want to go to MNSSHP!! The one here at DCA, is not so good. Not as many characters as the WDW seems to have.

Waiting patiently for those hours...
