Katie's outfit is so cute - the little Pascal on her pants is adorable.

12/15 Continued:

I've done Mary Poppins a number of times. I don't think we've taken a trip yet without a Mary Poppins costume along. But almost always the same style. This time I decided to get creative and do a holiday version....... Katie loved it, and was game to do anything as long as she got to dig out our Polly Parrot parasol once again!

A few minutes later, the lady of the hour showed up.......

Soon we said our good-byes and headed up Main Street. I saw this ADORABLE display in a window and couldn't resist grabbing a shot before heading on....... I have the tea cup but think I might have to spring for the teapot next time........

Then on up Main Street taking some more photos as we went along......

Katie loved these little guys and took this picture herself:

Is there a better sight on a gorgeous December morning?????????

We were hoping for one more meeting before changing and running off to play. Word had it the "real" fairy godmother would be back out on this day. Last trip we were able to see her a number of times. We had seen her once earlier in the week, but this was our only other chance for this trip.

I found the new Kenny the Pirate website right before leaving. He lists specific times for characters at the parks. He listed Mary at 8:20 on EMH days, and she was right on time. Not surprising though. She IS Mary Poppins.

We got to the castle around 8:45 before the 9AM regular park opening and got some awesome photos with hardly a soul in the background. Our timing was perfect.

I *thought* it might be Mary! Love the holiday version! And you got some great pictures.

5th grade graduation is next week - if I use the T2i on auto, I will be OK - too scared to try anything else that night and miss a shot! Can't wait to have more time to play with it!

Thanks Glennie! I had seen a white organza with poinsettia for Christmas in 2010 and had hoped to find that, but it never surfaced again. but I really liked this one. It had a lot more red!

I'm sure you'll be fine on auto. School is out for us on Monday. Tonight is the 5th grade dance. Just waiting on the hot curlers to do their work right now.

Have a wonderful summer! Teachers are done here on June 30th. I guess that would be the 29th this year. Students go until the 27th at the elementary level. When do you go back? My students think it is summer already, and we've still got more than a month to go! eek!

Beautiful pictures and costumes again. I went with my sister to a sewing shop the other day and I bought a Snow White and a Cinderella pattern (that's all we found) and she'll make me whichever one is easier! It will be my Halloween costume forever!

That dress is absolutely stunning! I am so jealous of Katie! And you of your skills.

I'm gonna have to remember to look for that character site.

I know what you mean about being busy...I have been on the go so much lately. A lot of it is house sitting at Moms for painters and carpet layers to come. I bring my laptop and try to catch up on Dis if I can...but as for doing my own updates or editing pictures.....I can't, as all the info is on the desktop.

I am being brave tonight and let Claire had 2 girls come spend the night...I sure hope they sleep...it's been a long day. They are all in the tub now...who knew 3 girls in the tub would be such a loud event.

Wow! A whole month left.

Don't tell me "I told you so" in a week when I'm complaining....... but I'm ready for summer. I'm tired of all the school related running.

But our first day back is 8/15. I'm sure we all go the same number of days, so I'm sure you'll be off later into the summer.

There really isn't a good pattern in the books for Sleeping Beauty or Ariel for adults. Will you wear your costume around trick or treating? Or do you go to costume parties? Or maybe a Halloween trip to Disney??????

Thanks Jen!

2 friends over for an overnight? You're FAR braver than I am! I let Katie have 3 friends over for a birthday sleepover last September..... and I'm not sure I'll ever do that again! I'm just too old for all that DRAMA!

Maybe life can slow down for both of us soon???????? PLEEASE???????

Oh I won't say I told you so, although it usually takes me more than a week to complain.... more like 8 days! This time I plan on doing a lot of school work to prep for next year. We'll see.

Our first day back isn't until Labour Day (1st Monday in September here, I think it's the same in the US?)

Oh I'll just wear my costume to school and at night handing out treats! I haven't been to a costume party, but if I had a good Disney costume, I'd wear it to one. I just want to feel Disneyish every once in a while and might wear the costume if I feel like it!

12/15 Continued:


The schedule showed the Fairy Godmother appearing at 9 AM then again at 9:45. So we headed back around the castle to wait for her.


IMG_7411 by mom2rtk, on Flickr

Katie got a kick out of showing me what was under her fancy dress.........


IMG_7413 by mom2rtk, on Flickr



We hung out waiting by the Cinderella fountain.



IMG_7418 by mom2rtk, on Flickr



But no 9 AM Fairy Godmother. Then theTremaines came out at 9:45 and we played with them a bit. That's always fun. They got a kick out of Katie's Polly parasol. Katie likes Polly too, so I'm pretty sure they weren't getting it from her. It's her favorite part of the costume.

We really hadn't set out to meet the Tremaines again. But honestly, it was a ball and I'm glad we did. Those gals sure knew how to pose. I'm pretty quick at the trigger with my camera. Heck, half the time I use burst mode and shoot shot after shot. It was hysterical to see how fast they could jump from one "pose" to another. And I was more than happy to keep snapping away. Heck I use a 32 GB class 10 card. I could have kept it up all day!

When the Fairy Godmother still didn't come out at 9:45, we asked around and found out she would not be out that day. I assume she will sick. I guess even those with magic wands can catch the sniffles.

I keep forgetting you're in Canada! But yes, Labor Day here is also the first Monday in September.

I've worn my costume for handing out trick or treat candy too. We get TONS of trick or treaters every year, usually between 200 and 300. It's alway lots of fun to see which of the kids from Katie's school make it by.

My guess was wrong! I actually thought you'd be doing Rapunzel's instead. Have you? I've loved all your dresses, but I might've missed it. Katie looks adorable as Mary Poppins! Loved how the step sisters played with her parasol, too! They're always hilarious. Too bad about your fairy godmother though. I find myself thinking of the two of you every time I see her, in the parks or pics, now!
