I'm not getting notifications on this. It is definitely time for us to have another December gathering! My gosh that was so much fun and there were soooooooooooooo many of us.

Did you get a chance to meet Rosie? I see you down there Rosie! OMGosh that was also the Jonas Brother's trip! Ice cold, freezing, parade day that was ultimately postponed. Okay, memories and more memories.

I love you girls and I am so glad you're writing another trip report!!!

Heather, I'm so glad to see you have a TR going! Your girlies are getting big and more cute as time goes by. Looking forward to reading along. Oh, and I would not have stepped a toe nail out of the car with a sign that said THAT! No way, no how sister.

Okay, I last left you with only our arrival day. I know....I am horrible! Now let's get to our Universal day!!

We got up early the next morning. Well, MIL got up early and started to get ready. Then once she was finished in the bathroom I went to take my bath and started to get ready. I let Chad and the girls sleep in a little. Once I got ready, I woke Chad up so he could get ready. The girls started to wake up by this time. MIL was finished so she decided to take the girls down to the restaurant in the hotel and start them on breakfast. I finished with my makeup while Chad finished getting ready. I only brought in one bag for our stay at this hotel. Everything else was still in the car. I figured it would make for an easier departure. So I packed up what things we brought in and we headed downstairs to breakfast. We get to the table and I see this

then this..

I actually removed some of the bacon from Hannah's plate. She ended up getting some fruit on her plate! lol

We finished up with breakfast and it was time to go! We went and got our thing out of the room and headed straight to Universal.

The very first place we headed was towards E.T. But, a worker saw the girls dresses and stopped us and said Sponge Bob and friends would be coming out in about 30 minutes for their little song and dance. So we went to the Despicable Me ride. Here is sweet Hollie with her 3D glasses

We finished up and headed towards Mel's Diner so we could see Sponge Bob and friends come out. Not even 5 minutes later, here they come!!

Hollie got really tickled at Squidward. He pointed at her dress and gave her the thumbs down sign as he shook his head! Here she is telling us about it

The sweet lady who told us about it, came and got the girls and put them in the front of the line so the could meet everyone

Since they have about the same personality...Chad joined Squidward

They also had some other characters around

Hannah was NOT a fan lol

They also had EB from Hop as well as his dad, the Pink Berets and some grumpy chicks, including Carlos!

Continued in next post

Next we headed towards E.T. But first...we had to check out the new Sponge Bob store!

We made it to E.T. and here are my sweet girls in line!

Now, Hannah was not really a fan of this ride. She did NOT like the dark part...which we soon found out she didn't like about any ride!

Next we hit up Woody Woodpecker's roller coaster, which is a favorite of Hollie's!

Next we headed towards MIB, which is one of our favorites! We stopped along the way to take some photos

Now we get over to MIB and Hollie decides she does NOT want to ride it this time. She said it was boring and she wanted popcorn! lol So MIL took the girls to get some popcorn while Chad and I rode it. After that we headed towards Earthquake and The Mummy. We really missed the Jaws ride and I wanted to get the girls picture with Bruce the Shark outside of what used to be Jaws. But...they weren't having it this time!

So we headed towards The Mummy. We get all the way over there and Hollie decides she isn't gonna ride this one. What in the world happened to my little daredevil!! So Chad and I rode it without her while she and Hannah ran around the little Central Park area out in front of it.

We all went to do Twister after that and again, Hannah was not a fan!! lol By this time, we were all hungry for some lunch so we decided to leave the park and head to eat at Nascar Grill which is a favorite of ours.

Here is Hollie trying to take a picture of herself holding the Universal sphere

We were looking forward to being able to see The Grinchmas at Islands of Adventure. I took the girls to the bathroom and changed their dresses and off we went to IoA!

We went to the Cat in the Hat first and rode it. I hate to say it, but I did not take any pictures of this ride. But, I did hear someone saying that the Grinch was about to do pictures. I need to scan the pictures we bought of him because they are just too cute!

Let me tell you about him. H I L A R I O U S!!! He is just perfect! It is really like you are meeting "The Grinch" from the Jim Carrey movie. He loved the girls dresses and even said something about my shirt. He turned us around to everyone else waiting in line and said, "See people....represent...represent when you like something!! Its all about the Grinch love!" ha ha

Here are the girls with with some Whoville folks

Now by this time, MIL was not feeling good at all. The girls were tired from our drive up the day before so all they wanted was a Butter Beer from WWoHP. But, Chad and I wanted to ride the Forbidden Journey. So we left the girls with MIL in Suess landing and headed that way.

Here I am with the train conductor! Yay!

We ended up riding it twice and then got everyone a butter beer. yum!

This place is just amazing!

Here is Hollie with her yummy butter beer!

continued next

My sassy girl again

We went to one fish two fish red fish blue fish

We met these folks

We headed towards the Caro-Seuss-el

You can tell how tired Hannah was starting to get

After that we decided to call it a day. We didn't even venture on the other side of the park. Hollie was tired, Hannah was tired, MIL was hurting so we packed it up and left to go check in at DISNEY!! Yay!!!!

I just found this.
The videos were cute.
I would have been with Chad laughing about the car too.
That is the hotel we are staying at in December. I hope it is good, we are there or 2 nights.
Looks like you had low crowds there.
