    Tracy, I'm sorry your son made you cry. I hope he grows out of being so mean to his mom!

    Tracy, we have also learned that a lot of alone time is necessary.

    I can't imagine anyone choosing a cigarette over Illuminations. :eek:

    I'm hoping the rest of the trip is going to go smoother.

    Sounds like you had a fab time, even with the little hiccups! :goodvibes

    I love all your photos, but especially the ones that show Abbey watching her kids soak in the magic. So precious! :cloud9:

    Tracy,
    I'm sorry about the argument...Josh reminds me a lot of my older brother, who used to behave the same way with my mom, so I empathize. :hug:

    Oh no! As I was reading, I kept thinking, "They're missing Illuminations!" :rotfl2: I'm so sorry your evening got ugly, and hopefully Josh learned his lesson. :hug:

    Hi Tracy! I hope you & Bill are having a nice Christmas. :santa:

    I'm all caught up again - I love Christmas night - so quiet, nothing left to do! :cloud9:

    Sorry about the blow up at Illuminations with Josh. :hug:

    I had to chuckle a bit when you started your last installment with the arrival at Teppan Edo... it sounded just like ours! We had raced to make it there on time & made Alex ride in a stroller- he wasn't happy about it and ended up outside the restaurant in time out with Tim. His face looked just like Hannah's by the time he joined us inside. :rolleyes1

    Can't wait to read more!

    I am sorry you had to deal with a temper tantrum, and hoping that will be the last one you have to write about. It looks like you guys had a great time other than that. I'm really looking forward to doing the pick-a-pearl with Piper (say that 3 times fast..lol), I think she'll get a kick out of it. I'm so enjoying reading along...

    I'm all caught up with your report, Tracy! I am so sorry that Josh had to make Illuminations a very un-fun event! :headache::headache: On a positive note, the videos you posted are so fun and happy! I love the dancing one and the pick-a-pearl one brings back lots of memories! I'm hoping to get a chance to actually do it with my girls next month!:goodvibes

    Looking forward to hearing about the next day! :thumbsup2

    He is a lot like his dad, I forget that sometimes :sad2:.

    He figured the cigarette woudln't take too long and they would still see it.

    I loved taking pictures of Abbey and the kids, that is what Disney is all about, seeing those precious memories unfold right in front of you.

    Got to have some funnel cake. I loved the Karma that happened that night. I seriously had to remember not to laugh so loud when Abbey told me what had happened to Josh, mean I know but he deserved it.:rotfl:

    Thanks.

    The kids saw Illuminations and loved it, especially the "big ball that opened" (that was what Hannah said).

    We had a wonderful Christmas, his Mom went insane again buying me presents. Among a ton of things, she got me two Disney Cricut cartridges, now I just have to start scrapbooking again. I have to she also got me more cardstock and a bunch of Disney related stickers. We race to Teppan Edo then wait, wait, wait:lmao:.

    Hi Jo!! Josh is going to be 21 in February, but acts like he is going on 3 sometimes. I was just waiting for him to throw himself to the ground and do this: [​IMG]

    I think Piper will really enjoy the Pick a Pearl experience, we really liked it.

    Hi Sara! Hannah and Christian love to dance. I hope you do get to to the pick a pearl!!

    Today Hannah was meeting Tinkerbell. I was excited. She loved her Tinkerbell dress, put it on and Abbey did her hair with a spraying of “Pixie Dust”. Josh was still hurting and asked if he could catch up with us later, I was fine with that so off we went.

    Hannah needed help with her princess lip balm I got her:


    [​IMG]

    Once we got to Magic Kingdom we decided to take the train to Toontown:

    [​IMG]

    We were all in a good mood that morning:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We got off the train and Hannah was ready to meet Tink:

    [​IMG]

    The CM at the front of the Fairies line asked where our GAC was. She said she would have taken us to another waiting spot if we would have had one. I told her thanks but we could wait just like everyone else and we did for about 60 minutes.

    Christian showing off his pins:

    [​IMG]

    Bill checking his email waiting in line:

    [​IMG]

    Once we got closer to Pixie Hollow Christian wanted me to take some pictures of him:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Hannah wanted to try that one:

    [​IMG]

    This is one of my favorite pictures of the entire trip, I love the smiles:

    [​IMG]

    It was finally time to meet the fairies, up first was Silvermist, I am going to post mostly photopass pictures. Christian wanted nothing to do with the fairies, but Bill was up for meeting them:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Bill was looking at Abbey when Silvermist attacked him!!

    [​IMG]

    Hannah then met Tink:

    [​IMG]

    Tinkerbell was FANTASTIC!!! Funny, entertaining, animated, like she just flew right out of the movies!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    She was amazing. Hannah was glowing.

    Continued in next post!

    After Hannah met Tink she was off to meet Terence from the new Tink movie.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Silvermist finally got her paws off MY man, and he was off to meet Tinkerbell. Think they were happy to see each other?

    [​IMG]

    She said she loved the “shiny things” he had collected and wanted to know if he was a Lost Boy:

    [​IMG]

    She just kept talking to him and he was grinning ear to ear:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It was time for us to go, but then Tink caught sight of Christian in the background and chased him. He went straight to Abbey for protection. I didn’t see this at first to I only got a small video of it at the end when Hannah joined in:

    [​IMG]

    After this we decided to jump in the short Princess line. Now you would think that between Abbey, me, and the Photopass photographer we would have gotten a picture of the thing had Abbey and I bursting into tears, but no we didn’t. Neither one of us was emotional when Hannah met Tink, but when Cinderella took Hannah’s hand to lead her to the bench, Abbey lost it. Then she turned around and looked at me, I saw her tears and I lost it too. Here are the Photopass pics from that, along with Bill again because you knew he wouldn’t pass up a chance to have women fawning over him:

    After we left the Princesses, we went outside and Josh called, he was at Pop Century waiting on a MK bus and wanted Abbey to meet him at the front. We offered to keep the kids and meet up at Fantasyland by Pinocchio’s Village Haus.

    Next installment… How long until Josh shows up and do we get along?

    I'm sorry Josh was so mean. Hate it when something like that spoils things. Hopefully that was the end of his bad and disrespectful behavior!

    I loved all the awesome pics you put in this time! Those princess pics with Abby and Bill are just great! He looks pretty happy, lol! And Abby looks so beautiful like a real princess!

    Hope you all had wonderful Christmas! Can't believve it's already new years and 2010, crazy!! Looking forward to reading more of your trip soon!

    p.s. Only 2 more days!! :mickeyjum

    What a great update Tracy! I love that Christian got into posing for pictures in Pixie Hollow, and the picture of him and Bill is fantastic!

    We haven't made it over to see the fairies yet, but I can tell that Tink was great! Love all the pictures, everyone looks so happy. And Abbey looks like a teenager in all her pictures!

    Great updates Tracy! :goodvibes That picture of Bill and Christian is REALLY good - I can see why it is one of your favorites from the trip! Christian looks like a real ham with all of his posing in Pixie Hollow! Your character interaction looks fabulous - I'm really looking forward to my girls meeting the fairies - Silvermist is Katie's favorite - so it would be great if she was there! (I'll have to keep Shawn away though - those fairies look a little bit man-hungry! LOL! :laughing:)

    Your princess pics are great too! What a special moment between you and Abbey! :hug:

    Looking forward to more! popcorn::

    Have a Happy New Year, Tracy and Bill! :)

    Tracy those pictures are so magical. What a wonderful gift you and Bill have given those children.

    I love the pic of Bill and Tinkerbelle where she is standing right next to him with her hand on her hip. I also love the fact that Bill is up for any kind of fun.
