The best vacation ever!!

Finally some pictures from Disney World. Let me say, it was the best trip ever. It could not have gone better. We had great flights, great weather, great tickets and 6 days of memories that are priceless. If the girls weren't grinning from ear to ear they were asleep. For anyone who hasn't been there, Disney truly is a magical place. Everyone was smiling from the minute they woke up to the minute they fell asleep. The girls had a magical time and we all had a blast watching them. We were planning our next trip with Evan before we left! Here are some of my favorite pictures - not an easy task since we took over 2000 of them, which I "narrowed down" to 677!!

Our 1st night there we take in a show and already the girls are already in awe.

In the lobby of Pop Century, our hotel.

At Mickey's Christmas Party - don't ya love the hats? Just remember, in Disney World we didn't even stand out as unusual!! In fact, we were mild!

Having brunch at Chef Mickey's - look at those smiles!

The girls wanted their faces painted at Hollywood Studios and thought mom should, too. A whole new meaning for "Ice Princess"! By the way, we did not instruct Paige & Brooke to strike rapper poses!

Posing with Woody and Buzz, who were hilarious! Notice the set is Andy's Bed - isn't that cool?

My favorite part! We had lunch at Cinderella's Royal Table which is in the castle on our last day there. Loren was absolutely floored when Cinderella called her "her twin". If nothing else cool had happened, her face at that moment would have made the whole trip worth it.

Meeting up with Papa & Dad after lunch with the princesses. I had to post this picture because of Loren's face - look at that smile! Trust me, at almost 8 she doesn't smile like that about too many things anymore.

Some pictures from our tree decorating night!!
For some reason on this day Evan figured out to say "cheeeeese" every time he saw a camera. No more cute little smiles!

Really a peaceful picture considering at this point we were
an hour and a half past bedtime!

Those of you who know about Paige & Brooke's
love/fight relationship will appreciate the Christmas magic
this picture involves!!

Well, we are getting ready to go to Disney! We fly out Sun. morning and are very excited! For those who don't know, Rod's parents are taking the girls to Disney World next week and Rod and
I are allowed to come along. :) Evan will be spending the week with my mom and my sister - she has 3 boys so I'm sure Evan will enjoy having some "guy time" for a change. I'll flood you all with Disney pics when we get home!!
