Aw, I'm so glad Ariana got her hair cut! I hope she lets you have it cut at home now too!

Thanks The 'princess hair' reference seemed to be the trick we needed - I'm not sure why I didn't think of it before!

The sparkles and confetti were so much fun for her. Little bits fell out here and there but they lasted the rest of the day!

Doesn't it feel great to finally get that first ride of a trip in? After that ride I really feel like the trip has begun. Can't wait to see what else the first full day had in store for you guys!
I'm so glad we went thru with the appointment! If you remember from my PTR, I'd considered it when I first heard the Barbershop was taking appointments but then decided against it, only to change my mind again when I saw on another PTR they'd booked it. I took Ariana this weekend to a salon to see if she'd do it again -- and she did!!

I'm glad the parade popped up when it did, otherwise we may have missed it again this trip. I think we saw the end of it one more time. It's fun!

I was super close to tearing up when she sat in the chair like a 'big girl'. Huge step for her and something I wouldn't have thought possible not that long ago.

I love all the window decorations!!! Mickey's Christmas Carol was one of my favorite movies of all time!!!

Jungle Cruise is such a great ride!!!!
I kept telling her how beautiful she was.... The window decorations were very cool - parts moved too, like when he was sitting in the chair and ghost Goofy was visiting, he was shivering in the chair from fright.

That's pretty much how we felt too, we'd done so much already but had only gone on one ride. We definately had an emphasis on character meets this trip, much to George's grumbling displeasure.

Finally up to date, sorry it took so long.

I lol'd at George wanting to make detours, didn't he do something similar on your last trip when he went to get the rental car?

Loving all your photos, looks like you had a blast at Ohana too, Stitch is so much fun isn't he

Loving MK all decked out for Christmas, esp the Christmas Carol window display, so cool

Looking forward to more
Last year worked out well when George got the rental car from the airport instead of Magically Expressing in, but he did get lost then too.

Stitch is a lot of fun, one of our favorites to meet. We had a chance meeting with him on another MK day and he pulled a stunt that had the entire line laughing....

The Christmas Carol windows are great!! And Santa looks so tan!
Santa was awesome. In Alex's picture he's laughing -- Santa was telling us stories of all the big burly guys he's had on his knee over the years. Alex had been concerned he would be a bit heavy, LOL.

She does and I couldn't be more thrilled! The hairdresser was wonderful with her and kept praising her for doing so well.

Your MK day was awesome, you sure had some pixie dust hitting Santa, the parade, and the castle show so quickly.

I am so happy Ariana let the barbershop cut her hair . It looks great!

We love the Jungle Cruise, I am really enjoying your pictures they are so vibrant!

Would you believe that I've never noticed the window decorations? I think I'll go early before work tomorrow and check them out.

I love the princess hair! It looks great.

We'd been so far behind starting at 'Ohana, it was great to get all those things done so quickly. Thanks for the compliments on the pictures! I was having some early problems with my camera -- I have to learn how to take night shots better.

All caught up now - wonderful start! Your family sounds like mine - we love to sleep in and often find ourselves rushing to the 10 am breakfasts. However, some of that has changed this past year since our little one likes to wake up early now. I'd rather be rushing and late and well-slept.

BIG CHEERS for Airana!!!!!! I bet you were grinning ear to ear!

I am cracking up over the characters lifting up Simba and then Pluto putting him in his mouth!

I'm going to have to seriously rethink the breakfasts next trip. We had a few late nights to start and it seemed we never really caught up after that.

I totally had a goofy grin the entire time Ariana was getting her haircut. I was kinda half waiting for her to change her mind part way through ....

That was definately the running theme for the whole trip. She frequently would ask them to kiss Baby Simba too.

10 am breakfast? Geez, by 10 we had already eaten breakfast and rode a few rides. The parks were pretty empty in the mornings.

WE have to sleep in too. Well not me, but my other 2 do. LOL!

I love the Move it shake it parade too. Last trip we saw it a few times and really enjoyed it. I have a thing for parades. I think years ago when I tiik my older 2, we never once saw a parade, and now we make it a priority when we go. Espeically the AK one. I LOVE that one.
The window decorations are beautiful. I wish I could've been there to see them in person.
