Happiest place on Earth! Part II

OK so as Cortney stated in her comments, I did leave out several big chunks of our Disneyland trip. Firstly, as we were coming out of the Pinocchio ride in fantasy land 2 guys came up to us and told us we were winners in the year of a million dreams and our whole family got "Dream fast passes". We didn't think it was that big of a deal but as we later found out they were pretty special. Usually when you get a fast pass you can only have one at a time. These dream passes gave us like 8 rides per park (Disneyland and California Adventure) and we could use them all whenever we wanted to! And apparently not a lot of people get these so we were pretty excited. So around 3 the kids were tired and ready to go so My sister Cortney was awesome enough to take the kids while Eric and I booked it back to Disneyland to make good use of our Dream passes! Since our Tickets were good for hopping, we went into California Adventure to hit some rides before they closed at 6 and then we went back to Disneyland to finish up before they closed at 8. We had so much fun running around like little kids getting on the rides! I was running a lot faster than Eric and I told him I would drag him around the park if I had to, to get to all the rides we wanted to! I actually did end up dragging him around most of the night but it was totally worth it to go on all the big, fun rides without the kids! Don't get me wrong, I loved the teacups but they don't hold a candle to California Screamin'! Anyway, we did stop for a couple pictures with our Disney photo pass but as it turns out you have to pay like 15 bucks just to download them so you can just imagine how cute we look standing in front of the lit up Christmas tree at California Adventure! And here's some more pics!

Kensie just Had to have a pink tea cup

As soon as Bryce walked up to him, Goofy grabbed Bryce's leash and tried to make him do doggy tricks like sit and stay or taking him for a walk and then he would pat his head. We thought it was pretty funny! Bryce didn't.

We waited like a half hour just to meet Mickey.
It's like he's a celebrity around there or something, geez!

And we did figure out after the fact, that our camera lens had a finger print smudge or something on it which is why ALL of our pictures have like a blur in the upper left hand corner. BOO!

I'm a total copycat...

Thanks Becca for helping me steal some cuteness...

Happiest place on Earth!

Our family was able to go to Disneyland this last Tuesday and we had SO much fun! My good friend got us in for free so she's basically the shiz and I love her. The kids were in heaven. As soon as we got out of the car, Bryce saw the picture on the parking garage of chip and Dale and he was FREAKING out! then I was like, "Oh honey, it get's so much better than a picture in the parking lot!" Then as we were walking down main street he said, "Mom where is Spider man?" hahaha he's so funny. Anyway here's some pictures of our fun day. I can't get these in the right order. You're already over it but my inner O.C.D. is N.O.T.

"The barf cups" Bryce insisted on spinning them the WHOLE time!

We made Bryce and Kensie wear "harnesses" aka Leashes. I cringe inside at the thought of it but it saved our lives because they couldn't get lost!
Bryce pulling the sword from the stone.

This bird came so close to us! We thought it was really funny.

This is what Charlie looked like by mid-day.

Stroller friends

It was all decked out for Christmas. Gorgeous!

Kensie and I waiting for the boys.

The big boat ride that we waited a HUNDRED years for! LAME!

This is what Charlie's hair looked like after we took his cute mickey ears off.

This was Kensie's Fav part of the day!

Charlie fell in love with Ariel. She was the only one who could get him to smile. What man can resist a beautiful red head calling him "Stud".

Bryce thought the tram from the parking structure was the funnest ride ever!

After a hard day of play. These mouseketeers didn't make it out of the parking garage!

ch-ch-ch-check it out!

Our show opens in just a few short weeks! It is going to be a gorgeous set and a beautiful way to get into the spirit of the upcoming holiday season! I will only be performing as Mary Magdalene on select nights because the show is double cast. My nights will be December 6th, 10th, 12th and a matinee performance at 2:00 on the 13th. Be there or Be Square...

Too Soon?

It's not too early to be putting Christmas colors on my blog and blasting christmas music through the house, is it? Because if it is, you're all over the fact that I'm already doing it! tee-hee!
(Also, it seems that this "Red" translates as "Burnt Orange" in which case, you'll get over that too.)

4 reals

I was TAGGED! Go to the 4th file and pick the 4th picture then tag 4 people.
This picture was taken when Bryce was 2 months old. It was the only time he got to meet his Papa John in person. I Love it.

I tag Stephanie, Jessica, Sunny and CORTNEY! (just because I know how much you LOVE to be tagged!)
