This is a heck of a trip, getting to see the Halloween party, a cruise & the Christmas party all on the same trip!
It was a dream trip. I loved being able to do both in one trip and both were first for me as well.

I noticed these girls were all wearing wigs Öand that got me thinking. Do they have a wig to match their natural hair color, or do they get any old color to wear?











And again ÖHow cute are these Gingerbread guys?





They are flat on the back side from laying on the pan.













Clarabelle is so much fun.







I am not sure why he has Nemo in his pocket?







The toys are coming!!

I think Woody is telling us itís past our bedtime.





And the best part of the whole parade Ö.the Toy Soldiers. These guys are amazing.











I would go back to the party just to see them alone.







Have you ever seen this on Youtube. I just love this video of the toy soldier auditioning to be in the parade. If you get a chance, watch it. Itís so neat.

On with the parade.











The reindeers were pretty cool too.







Santa!!!!!!





Hey Santa! I want a trip to Disney for Christmas!!!









That was such an awesome parade. I really hope to get back there for the Holidays to see this again someday. I had hoped that maybe we could squeeze in a small trip this year, but I donít think itís going to work out for that to happen.

You gotta switch to flickr. It's so much better...not perfect, but better.

After the parade we decided to get some hot chocolate and cookies. I think we got snickerdoodles. We sat down over near Aloha Isle and just relaxed for a while.



Either Amanda (my sister) called me or I noticed a missed call from her and called her back at that point. I had totally forgotten, but remember, she sent an email to Geoff while on the cruise saying I had a flat tire. UGH. So she asked me what to do about it. She was going to have AAA change it. There is a care center right around the corner from her house and I think she was going to drive it over there. She had been busy and hadnít had time to do anything about it and that was ok, as I wasnít due home for a few more days.

After nibbling on our cookies Ö.we were really still really full from our 2 dinners, so we didnít eat much Ö..we got up and started moving again. We saw this little band playing music.







I am not sure if we rode anything or not, but we did go and find Uncle Scrooge.



This was another character I kind of made Claire meet for me. She wasnít too thrilled, but I made a big deal about him being rare and she was more agreeable then.











We wandered around a bit more, and again, I donít remember if we rode anything or not. If we did, I didnít take any pictures. I know we sat down and just stared at the castle a few times. We just found this to be our happy place and we never wanted to leave. We probably also called Skip at some point in time.

We did get another photopass picture.









Honestly, I have never seen the park more beautiful than this night. The decorations and lights are just fabulous.
Sadly it was getting close to midnight and time to head back to AoA.



LOOK!!!!! Itís snowing!!!!



This just made it feel even more magical.







If I could have, I wouldíve tried to get tickets for another party night. It just felt so magical, but sadly our trip was coming closer to an end and the next party would be held after we have left.

Isn't it wonderful when that snow starts coming down at MK? A magical place becomes all the more magical.

Beautiful pictures Jen.

I am always trying to get a balloon shot, but never happy with them.

















Sigh!!!!!!!! Time to leave.



We headed out to the bus stop where I am sure we had to wait for a bus, but I donít remember it being too bad.

We were pretty darn tired and got ready for bed. We had one more full day left and yet time seemed to be going so fast. We had so much more we wanted to do.

I had met up with Jennifer from my Facebook group this morning while waiting in line for the bus to AK. It was so funny that she recognized Claire and her dress. It was nice to meet her.
Oh the People We See!
We went to our very first Christmas party this evening and I really hope I can get to many more in the future.
Oh the Places We Go!
