    Thanks. It's always fun to see the reactions.

    I would like a beach themed house too. I have a pond out back, but it's not a pretty one. The cows like it thoughl
    It was not my thing, but at least I tried it. Paige likes wied things too. Must be the age/generation.

    They don't really bite unless they mistake you for apple pieces, but I don't think any of us got nipped. Of course Abby and Alexis really didn't even want to touch a bird. Abby might have wrung it's neck if it got too close.

    Just wanted to thank Carey for quoting some of my favorite pics so far. I had forgotten about some of them.

    Thanks Cass. She will have a ball I bet. They are so cute to watch and then the walk around afterwards like they really are royalty.

    I am so mean to take pictures. She yells at me often still about picture taking.

    On Sunday I went for a walk around Mary and Geoffs yard looking at the flowers and Abby saw me out the window so Gail said she insisted they come out too. Geoff has a plastic flamingo and Abby saw it was scared of it. Gail pet it nicely and showed Abby that it was fake and then I showed her how to take care of it if it bothered her by wrapping my hand around it's neck. :rotfl:

    Claire was protected in the middle, so she was a bit braver. :thumbsup2

    :lovestruc

    Yeah, he's not getting it either. LOL Well I am so jealous you have a wonderful BIL like that. :rotfl2:

    Claire still had one more finishing touch needed. She had to have her crown that we brought along placed on her royal head.

    Now she looks perfect.

    And so does Princess Alexis.

    Princess Abby, in true Cinderella fashion, kept losing her glass slipper.

    Early on during the appointment, Aunt Mary had handed me a gift card. She said she still had money on it and was probably not going to use it, so we could use it to pay for the girls. She said she wasn’t sure what was left on it. Well I think she did and she was being sneaky. During the appointment a Fairy Godmother in Training came over to take my payment and I handed her the gift card. I figured I would find out how much was on it, use it on Claire and divide the amount by 3 and give Gail her portion in cash. Well it more than covered Claire’s amount and it still had a large amount left on it ….like $120 or more. I was shocked. I don’t know why Aunt Mary didn’t apply this to her shipboard account, but she is sneaky that way, always spoiling the girls. So I handed off the card to Gail. I told her how much was left, but I don’t think she understood me and she paid hers in cash. I then told her again how much was left. She said she would just have the girls buy something then for themselves later in the day. Well somehow Aunt Mary felt Claire didn’t get enough use out of the gift card. I told her it worked out perfectly and it basically worked out to an equal amount for each kid. She told me not to argue and gave me another $40 for Claire to spend. I am not quite sure how that math worked out at all. LOL.

    We all gathered our belongings then and headed out.

    Our next stop was to get a photo shoot for the girls at Castle Couture. We had to wait a bit as there were a few kids in front of us.

    Then it was our turn. Abby wasn’t sure about this and at first said no pictures. We then played the game with her that always works.
    “Abby, if you don’t want your picture, that’s ok. Uncle Geoff will go in and stand by the girls.” It’s so hilarious but it works every time. If she won’t do something, we tell her Geoff will do it instead and she runs quickly before he has a chance to get there and do it. It’s going to be funny some day when she doesn’t care and Geoff will be force to do whatever it is. LOL.

    Abby did tire, so we did a few with just Alexis and Claire.

    And then Alexis by herself.

    Abby found something to occupy herself.

    [​IMG]

    We coaxed Abby to get a few with Alexis then.

    Claire’s turn.

    They then got the chaise out and all 3 girls came back.

    She looks so innocent there.

    “Hey Uncle Geoff! Don’t even think about sitting on this chair!”

    As you can see, getting the photopass CD was well worth it for us. We had a ton of pictures taken during the experience and after.

    The girls did a little shopping afterwards.

    I don’t think we bought anything because I didn’t want to carry it around for the rest of the night. This was Gail’s last day so, so I am sure the girls found a few things they liked.

    Awwww..... what great photos of the girls. Aunt Mary sounds pretty sweet and thoughtful. :goodvibes

    And the Uncle Geoff trick for getting Abby into the photo ...... pure genius! And I can tell it really did the trick. Getting a photo with all 3 smiling was quite a feat!

    And Claire's shots are gorgeous..... a great addition to your collection of BBB photos. I love the full length ones where she's holding her skirt and sticking her shoe out.

    Come on! Those pictures are adorable!

    I especially love the ones of the three of them when they are holding their dresses out curtsy style.

    Aunt Mary spoils those girls all the time.
    We laugh how Abby is worried Geoff will take her place for anything. If she won't eat something we tell her we will just give it to Geoff then. :rotfl2:
    Claire had on a nice white tennis shoe. :thumbsup2

    I hadn't even realized I was at 100 pages.

    The crown compliments Claire's make over. The photos came out really well. I agree, the photo CD is really fantastic value.

    It was so nice and Claire was happy because I had told her that she had to earn the money to pay for BBB this time since we have done it twice already. We saved pop cans for about a year and took them in before the trip to recycle and we had about the right amount earned for BBB with those. Now she had some extra cash to spend. :thumbsup2

    The CD is well worth it and when we got so many pictures here it made it just a bargain for us.

    I love it!!! The girls look so cute! What a wonderful experience! I can't wait for Catie to be old enough for the BBB!!

    Um… does Aunt Mary want to adopt me?? I like the way her math works! :lmao:
