December Week Four

I spent December 26 getting our house cleaned up from the holidays and having house guests, taking and packing up Christmas decorations/taking down our trees, and packing us all for Florida! Luke went to work so he could leave town, and then we were ready to go! We got up early on the 27th and drove to visit PopPop and Grammy. 14 hours later, I think I was the most ready to be out of the car. The kids couldnt have been better, and were completely happy with movies and snacks! I cant imagine making that trip as often as PopPop and Grammy do. Whew!
On Saturday, we spent the day at Seaworld. It was one of the kids' (and our) Christmas gifts. I had never been and Luke hadnt been since he was little. The day started out rainy, but the weather quickly turned perfect and we had a wonderful day!

We went to church on Sunday and I took a much needed nap. Grammy and Kate made homemade pizza for dinner,and then we went and saw Christmas lights in the park and got milkshakes.

On Monday, PopPop and Grammy had to go to a funeral, so we set out on our own to Magic Kingdom. Apparantly, if you take a few wrong turns, you can drive right onto Disney property. That would be Space Mountain. Luke dropped me and the kids off at Lost and Found, and I was able to get in line to get our tickets while he parked and walked up. 

We ran back to the new part to start off our day. Here is Kate seeing Belle's castle for the first time.

I hate that this one is blurry!

We rode the new Ariel ride and then went to her grotto to meet her!
The whole new party of fantasyland is really cute. 
Gaston's fountain

My favorite was storytime with Belle. That got to act out the story with Belle!

Can you spot me and the kids? I asked Luke to get a pic of us with the tree. Haha!

Getting her smooshed penny. Cheapest and most awesome souvenir they have!

It was crazy crowded. Probably the most crowded in all the trips Ive ever made. This was fantasyland by It's a small world, peter pan, etc. Crazy!

When we got there that morning, I asked Luke to go over to Be My Guest and just see if they had any reservations. I knew they wouldn't, and the host told him they were booked for six months. He said if there was someone standing outside with a clipboard, they had an opening. Luke had gone to get some fast passes and came back with a 7:30 reservation. It was my favorite part of the day!

We ended the day with snow on Main Street and seeing the Big Man himself!

 Someone gave us these balloons because they were tired of them. We enjoyed them and then passed them along because they were so annoying!

 We left the next morning and made it back just in time to see the ball drop in NYC!
