Disney On Ice

Melissa & I have a very sweet friend (Molly) who works for Radio Disney. Last Thursday she gave us 6 tickets to Disney On Ice! Melissa & I were practically giddy we were so excited.

Thursday morning when I told Ella what we were doing, she kept screaming, "Yea, we're going to Disney World." I kept trying to explain that we get to go see Mickey & Minnie and all her favorite friends, but not at Disney World.

Not only did Molly give us tickets to the show, but we got to go early to a pre-show that had food and hang out time with none other than Mickey and Minnie themselves!

All the kiddos ready to go!

Besides when they are strapped down in their carseats and can't go anywhere, this is the best we could get of a group shot. Melissa and I were so happy that our sweet friend Maison could go with us. Ella LOVES Mae Mae!

I am in love with this shirt. Heath's mom bought it for Ella when we were at Disney World last year and this was the first time she has worn it. I don't know if you can tell in the picture, but the tulle part of Cinderella's dress comes off of the shirt.

When I say Ella was excited to see her old pals Mickey & Minnie, that would be the biggest understatement of the year.

Big hugs from her BFF.

This was definitely one of my favorite moments of the day! Joshua was scared to death to see the giant rats. He was literally trying to jump over Melissa's shoulder. I really should have helped but I was way too busy documenting it!

Waiting for the show to start.

Each of them got a yummy Stitch snow cone!

As soon as the show started, Ella crawled on my lap and sat there the entire show, which I cherished every second of. Everytime a new character came out she would start waving and yell, "HI (name)". Precious!!!

The Little Mermaid!

The Lion King!

The HUGE Ursala!

Peter Pan!!

Tinker Bell and the rest flying through the air!

Mickey & the Gang!

The ride home!! :-)

THANKS MOLLY!! It was a blast and the kids LOVED it! Okay, so did Melissa and I! :-)

How sweet of Molly! I need to take Keegan to something like that...He would love it!

I'm not going to lie. The part about Ella crawling into your lap and "greeting" every character as they came onto the ice? May have made my uterus skip a beat.

(Or two.)

What a fun memory to make with your girlie!

Uhm...I might be jealous that Little Mermaid was a part of it too! Hehe

Is it a bad thing if I hope that Caroline loves Disney as much as Ella?
