All caught up and the BBB pictures are fabulous.

All three girls look like they had a blast, especially Abby.

I bet that was unexpected.

oh yes, the bubble. UGH. I wish they did it like the brochure where it's kind of spikey. It's false advertising. I don't want cotton candy hair, I want spikes!

I'm glad you had a great Sail Away party time! Looks like it was a fun party.

Kadence liked seeing the pools and slides. She thinks Claire is quite brave to go on the Aqua Duck.

How nice your sister got you a gift for all that you did to get the trip together. You did good!
Thats ok. You were way behind.

The Aquaduck isn't scary, you ride a raft and it isn't super fast.
It does some rabbit type hops and it is fun, but cold water always goes up my backside.
I loved my gift. I still need to put pictures in the photo album thing yet

The food was pretty darn good that night.
I could go for a Mickey bar too right now. And yes, Jude really enjoyed them. I am jealous, as they are going on the Fantasy in Sept.

I was happy with the dress too because I knew it wasn't something you would see others wearing.
I loved the melted mickey bar too. This guy I got them from does a great job. I need to get more magnetic paper and start making new ones for the future.

Hi Pat! They did, and it was unexpected. i did tell Gail at one time that you never know how kids will be at things like this and she may actually do it, but Gail said there was no way she would sit that long, and I had to agree with her. I know my BBB years are limited with Claire, so we'll enjoy it while we can. I can't believe how much she has grown. Time is flying so fast.

The girls were so cute, however after the reveal that smile of Abby's was so endearing. She is just so funny & such a stinker!

Claire is growing up so fast, she looks the regular young lady. Her dress was so pretty not the usual princess style. Like you I don't care for the "bubble" thing stuck on the top of their head. I liked Abby's little bun. The spikey style is much better looking.

Thanks for the BBB update, Jen! All three girls look great, but I think Abby takes the crown for being the cutest. Her expressions are just too cute and how she loved the "finished product".
Count me in on the ones who didn't know Alexis and Abby were adopted. They look so much alike and at times even Claire fits in so well.

I know. I am just disgusted with this. So many people don't know how it works and will probably just take her word for it.
We at going aug 20-29. I got our pretty dress last week and it is fabulous! I am so excited for v to see it. I have a crapload of customs to make and no clue how they will all get done other than my mom will probable make most f them! I work all summer andill do all the appliquee work but I'm betting my mom will do most of the sewing.

Gail got both girls the day they were born. They looks quite a bit alike too and they both look very much like Rob. A while back someone told me how much Claire and Alexis look like each other too, only one had brown hair and brwon eyes and the other blonde and blue eyed. I had to laugh, because they kind of do at times.
I got behind, but I wanted to say that I wouldn't have guessed they were adopted, because I do think the girls all have similar features, and I just assumed that Rob's genes were stronger than Gail's!! Clearly, they are suppose to be a family!

It feels great to finally be able to catch back up on some things. First stop? Jen's trip report! Slow down a bit so it doesn't run out too soon, ok?

So is that a self-portrait?

I'm so glad you got to see the Christmas version! How fun to be surprised like that.

Our last 2 trips we have had to break AK up into 2 mornings and have missed the parade. We saw it in 2010 though and really enjoyed it.

I agree, it sure looks like Abby is loving that parade!

I love that you got the snow coming from the float. I must have missed that, or they must have added it since I don't recall seeing that at all!

We had a really rude photopass photographer at the Santa Goofy spot. Not sure what it is there. I almost always have photos of the character interactions before the actual posed photo. Pulling Abby off of Goofy's leg would have been good to have more shots of.

And why were the PP photographers still hanging out at the IG if they were done for the day? I'm glad you got one though. I LOVE that border of the World Showcase. Next time we get there I'll have to pop over there and get some photos taken there to see what borders they have.

So what did you think of needing jeans at Disney? It takes a lot to get me into long pants there, but I've always said Disney in a sweatshirt is absolutely heavenly!

Claire looked awesome in the Belle skirt set! I'm so glad she got to use it.

You know, I have started to like Cindy's new gown and hair more and more. I do find myself wanting to straighten the hair for her occasionally, and maybe mush down her sleeve...... but overall I do like it better than the old look. When I see photos of the old one now it really does look dated to me.

I'm enjoying seeing Akershus through your eyes. I think our Akershus days are over. I just won't give up the castle, and Katie doesn't care enough to do both.

OK, I could totally forgive you for not loving Illuminations. But Wishes? Oy vey. Not sure what I'm going to do with you. But then I love any fireworks when there's a castle involved!

OK, I'm gonna just post this now before I lose it all. I still have about 10 pages to go though!

I SOO wish that we were able to do BBB for my girls- but it will have to wait until our next trip. I'm not going to let Catie watch her sister do it and not get to do it herself- she'd be SO upset!!! It would be a BAAAAD day in the Castle- for SURE!

Abby looked soooooo cute! OMG, you could just see how proud and happy she was with her new do!! And I didn't realize that the girls' hair would be braided under the hairpiece… I guess I assumed they just did the bun no matter what. Good to know!!

I love seeing all the photos of the Beach Club area. Such blue skies, such blue still water. Sigh. I want to be there.

What a bummer for Rob to be sick. I love Disney in December but the risk of illness is so much higher then that it always worries me.

So glad they had the DHS tree up for you! I love that park at Christmas. OK, so who am I kidding. I love ALL the parks at Christmas!

I LOVE the magic Sebastian shots. I had no idea they did those so will have to make sure we try it ourselves when we make it back.

I do love your style Jen. You knew just how to handle Starring Rolls. "We're getting one cupcake to share and I'm picking it out". Boom. All crises averted. You sound like you know what you're doing!

I had almost forgotten about all your transportation issues on your trip. But it's sure coming back to me now that I'm reading along. That has to be so frustrating.

LOL at the CM's comments about the bus driver.

I hate that feeling of running late and watching the clock when you have no control over things. The first time we did the princess tea party, we did it on the day we checked out. Even with taking a taxi we ran really late and everywhere we went traffic was slow and really backed up. What a relief when we finally got there and could relax and let it all go.

I just love that they finally added Photopass to the tea party. The first few times we went they didn't do that and it was so odd to feel so left out of the whole thing. I think they finally had Photopass the last time we went in 2010.

Smart move to take things into your own hands and take a taxi back to DHS. Sometimes you just need to feel like you are controlling your own destiny. I do recall taking a bus to DHS once from Pop when we were running late. And I recall being dropped in the middle of the street like that. Very odd!

I'm loving both of these photos! There's just something so silly about hanging out with a 4 year old!

I also love the shot of the girls on the suitcases. It looks like they had SO much fun together!

YEAH for not having to wait long for your boat on the way out of DHS!

Too funny that you remembered your waitress from years before. And to have a similar problem again is just awful. Sounds like Susan needs some remedial training. I don't have that problem because I never attach a credit card to my room. I just don't want any room for error. They can actually charge your meal to credits, and let you pay the tip with a credit card right at the table. But I usually pay cash for my tips.

Katie would have LOVED sitting in that big chair. Probably because it looks like a throne!

I LOVE that shell frame in the lobby of the Beach Club. I might have to try making something like that myself. I think I know where I might find a few shells.......

So what is it about the swimming? They all beg to swim don't they? Doesn't matter whether there are the best attractions in the world in the parks. Given a choice, I think they would all choose the pool. Sigh. At least you guys got to squeeze it all in!

LOL at having a photo of the boat you MISSED the next morning. Just to relive the experience when you got home later?

I think I've only seen Mr. Potatohead once too. I like TSMM but am not crazy over it, so mostly only do it with FP.

I think Claire's Star Wars shots turned out great. So glad you made her do that. I sure wish we could have done that when the boys were little. There were years when Star Wars was as big a deal at our house as Disney is (well, was.....) at our house over the past few years.

I tried to talk Katie into Beaches and Cream on this past trip, but she didn't go for it. I'm TOTALLY showing her pictures of your "lunch". What a great vacation idea!

I don't blame Rob one bit for pushing it and going along to the MK. NO way would you have kept me from seeing my child's first sight of the castle.

Remind me NEVER to show photos of that Marriott pool to Katie. We'd never get to stay onsite again!

Ahhh..... love the shot of you between the soldiers with the castle in the background. I keep forgetting the tree doesn't go up until later. I sure wish we could get there earlier for that photo op sometime.

You did an awesome job with the shots in BBB. That's a really tough location with low light and challenging white balance.

The girls look adorable. Too funny that Abby all of a sudden HAD to have mouse ears..... after not wanting anything in her hair. They sure keep us guessing, don't they?

Claire's dress was PERFECT for the season!

I'm laughing right out loud at the thought of Abby licking the shield! I sure miss the silly stage.

I love the way Gail is laughing at Abby!

I do love the choice of red for Alexis with her Ariel costume. And too funny that Claire had to do the same thing. Katie and McKenna did that when they went to the boutique together each time.

Strange that the crowns were there. When we were there in December they were gone. Nobody really would explain either. Has anyone been since December and know if they re back?

I was waiting with baited breath to see if Abby would smile at her reveal. How fun it must have been to see her break into a big grin!

So glad Claire liked hers too. She looks great as a redhead. Her mom has purple hair, so maybe some day she'll go red for real??????

And with that, I declare myself all caught back up!
