Precious! I love Santa pictures! The first trip we did, the girls were 4 & 5... The first few characters, they were a bit shy... but once they saw what was going on, and all the other little kids doing it - they were more than happy to meet all the characters they could.

I'm hoping she'll like the characters - she already talks about wanting to meet various characters - mostly Mickey.

I hope your DD enjoys meeting the characters too. My DS was great with Mickey.....the others? Not so great. But he was fine about it by the time he got to 8.

We'll see how it goes. I figure if she can be friendly with Ronald McDonald who is a clown, she can be friendly with Disney characters

Your daughter is so precious with Santa. She'll do fine with the Disney characters.

Ice Cream in December

We are big fans of ice cream. DD is especially looking forward to eating her first Mickey ice cream bar.

Since we live in NC, it's not terribly cold out. It was in the 70's this weekend, so we decided to go down to Kilwin's.

DH and I grew up in Michigan and Kilwin's is a little piece of home. It's the only place that I can get Mackinaw Island Fudge ice cream and it's very yummy.

Afterwards, DD wanted her picture with the statues outside the shop.



We are deep into Christmas planning and haven't done much with our Disney plans. Once the new year starts, I'm going to start to make our plans so we can be ready when 180 days hit.

Adorable photo of your dd.

I am feeling the same - I am also in the middle of Christmas, and not much trip planning is happening.

Ice cream is good any time of the year. Even in the dead of winter up here in Maine, I still get ice cream. It actually makes me feel warmer because it makes me think of summer!

Merry Christmas Eve!

Things have been crazy as I try to get ready for Christmas and I haven't done much with Disney planning lately.

My in-laws might be joining us for our trip. Not terribly thrilled about it for several reasons but we will still have a good time.

But I'm glad it is nearly Christmas - I'm so looking forward to watching the Disney Christmas Day with DD tomorrow. I still can't hardly believe that we are actually going back to Disney World in a little over 9 months.

DD is having a very merry Disney Christmas. Most of her presents from Santa are Jake and the Neverland Pirates. She is getting the ship as well as several of the little figures to go with it. She has been looking at it in the store for weeks now.

Here's a picture of her with our outdoor lights:



Once 2013 arrives, DH and I are going to sit down and start to make our plans so we can be ready to make ADR's. DH has requested that we eat dinner at BOG on our MK day.

Beyond that, we are going to eat at Chef Mickey's and I'd like to eat at Ohana. We'll work on a plan once the holidays are over and things get back to normal.

Merry Christmas, DMGeurts and PrincessInOz!

PrincessInOz - It's still Christmas Eve morning here - I'm still working but it's very slow. I've been watching the NORAD Santa tracker though as Santa makes his journey throughout the world

Christmas!

Christmas is over and I'm looking forward to the new year since it's the Year of Disney for us

But I thought I'd post about how our Christmas went.

DD just started preschool this year so she had her first Christmas program a few weeks ago. Each class sung song while the kindergarten class had the speaking parts. DD's class were shepherds who sang 'Away in the Manger'. It was really cute!





For Christmas, we had a pretty laid back holiday. We went to church on Christmas Eve and DD got to open one present when we got home, which was her Christmas pj's.

She was up at 6:30 am on Christmas morning (which is about the same time she usually get's up) and opened her presents from Santa. She got a lot of Disney stuff - her biggest and favorite being the ship from Jake and the Neverland pirates.

Our closest family is 3 1/2 hours away with most of our family being 12 hours away. I had to work the next day, so we opted to stay home. DH made a ham dinner with all the fixings and we just vegged out while DD played with her toys.

We did watch the Disney Christmas parade, which made DD and I excited for our upcoming trip. And I watched Doctor Who in the evening while DH went to the movies.

We also got to Skype with my in-laws as well as DD's cousins. That was fun

Here's a few pictures from Christmas morning:
