I love her expressions in the reveal and those caught in the mirror are priceless. Can't wait for our granddaughter's first trip!

I may have to seriously look into it for Sept. I mean how much longer is she going to be in the princess stage. She's 7 now, by the time we go in late 2012/ early 2013 she'll be 9! She just might think she's too old
My DDs were just turned 10 and about to turn 8 when we did it in March and they LOVED it. I also thought that would be our last chance - especially with DD10. My younger DD thought it was so cool that a little boy said to his mom - Look, there's Belle!! They both enjoyed the extra attention for sure!

Absolutely,, DO IT!! Claire looked so pretty! My dd 11 is past that dress up stage for princess. She won't go near them or stand in line for autographs, nothing. The opportunity goes by way too fast and I'm glad that we got it done when she was 8.

Claire's BBB pics are great! Sorry I've been MIA for awhile. Summer has just been so busy. I'm trying to catch up.

Alll your photos are great. I'm taking a couple of classes on learning to use my camera. I did one already and learned so much.

I actually tried to talk Claire into pirates league, but she wouldn't go for it. I told her they had a girly pirate and she still said no.
Max cost me a fortune in Legos. He had to have all those big expensive sets, and the Lego Mindstorm and he built all the city sets and has a set up in his room that looks just like Main Street in the MK complete with crowd waiting for parade!! Other than Legos though, he really has been a low maintenance kid. Boys scouts, even all the way through Eagle wasn't really very expensive compared to what friends paid for other activities that Max wasn't into such as non-scout related sports.

I can NOT convince Heidi to do the BBB. She screams when I have to put her hair up in a bun for ballet recitals. I showed her Claire's picture too. I think if they offered a Rapunzel package with maybe a braid down her back and lots of flowers (without any putting up in a bun) then she probably would go for it. She has waist length blond hair, so she looks more like Rapunzel even though she's Tinkerbell sized.

Your TR is so inspiring! I am just starting to read up on cruises and now I have my heart set on a Disney cruise! You guys look like you're having so much fun! My DS is only 2 so I think we'll wait a little longer, but, hey...a girl can dream, right?

I LOVE the one with the caption "I'm A Character". She's got this little grin like she's got a secret that nobody else knows.

Claire looks so pretty I too do not like the hair bubble. It's just blah. I hope if my Cady ever does the BBB that she'll pick the other hairstyle. It's more appealing!

Was the FGMT better this time? I remember you said in your last TR that she wasn't all that great.

You have to take her. She will LOVE it! I agree. I don't know when we wil lbe back and if Claire will want to do it then either, so I thought I better grab this chance...it may have been our last one.

I am so glad I did it. At first I kept thinking we would never have enough time...but then I thought, I know how much she loves this, and I started seeing other little girls being done on different TR's and I got sad. It was so worth it to see her little smiles and all night she felt so special.

I love all the attention they get after too. Claire walks around like she's the only princess in the park.

Thats OK. I try to get on every day and I am stil lbehind on all my subscribed threads. It's hard to keep up. And I wil lbe busy the rest of the day too.
I took a few classes as well in the past and it does really help.

Michael was very expensive too. He always wanted every video game out there. We did have a lot of legos, but luckily we had a lot saved from when I was a kid, so that helped keep some of the cost down. We still have most of them for Claire now too.

Seeing photos like those of Claire is when my girl envy kicks in! If I had a daughter she would have been so spoiled!!
I still have the boys Legos in the closet along with some other things.
