Magic Kingdom day 3...The Halloween Party

Argg Mate's.

The Halloween Party at Disney World is a private party you pay separately for. It was awesome. We stayed close to the hotel this day and played in the pools. Miller loved the slides and we napped all afternoon...the reason behind the "take it easy day" was because the Halloween party started at 7 and ended at midnight and we wanted Miller and Madison to be well rested so they would have the best experience ever. And they did.


Madison and Miller in front of Mickey's Toon Town Fair....we rode so many rides and met with Minnie over in this area this night...


She was so nice to the kids...and her costume was awesome.


There were two parades..we chose the last one at 10pm. It was the coolest parade ever...we had front roll seats and Miller had a blast.


Mickey Mouse waiving at us...


Jack Sparrow...Miller loves the Pirates.


The wicked queen....when the villians came in they were dancing in the streets....Carella DeVille from 101 Dalmations came and got right in Miller's face and blew him a kiss...an evil one...but fun...I thought he was going to come out of his stroller....it was so funny.


The kids with Captain Hook and his Mate.....


We ended our night over by the Pirates of the Caribbean....the ride was so awesome. The kids did really good....we love Magic Kingdom. If we could live there we would. A great night...and the kids were still going at midnight.
Trick or Treating at Disney...it doesn't get much better than that for a kid.

Tomorrow..day4 Animal Kingdom....stay tuned.

Mondays



For more day books go on over to visit Peggy at The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY...Monday...October 19th

Outside my window...there is light frost on the ground. The sun is rising slowly. A new day.

I am thinking...of how vacations are so important.

I am thankful for...Scott and the kids. I'm so very lucky.

I am wearing...pajamas....

I am remembering... Miller's face when Mickey Mouse walked up to him for the first time last week. It was priceless to see his glow.

I am going... No where today. Getting back on schedule..

I am reading...little devotionals.

I am hoping... that God grants peace with a couple I know.

On my mind...fall...and the holidays.

From the learning rooms... talking about pumpkins this week...carving and painting some.

Noticing that...God is in control. And we must give all our problems to him. He will work them out on his time table.

Pondering these words...M I C K E Y M O U S E......

From the kitchen... Chili, Chicken Quesadilas, Pasta Bake, and something new...got it from a friend...we watch the Biggest Loser on Tuesday Nights...so Tuesday Nights will be Salad Nights...so we are doing a grilled chicken Caesar one night...dessert this week.....Peanut Butter and Chocolate brownies.

Around the house...stripping sheets, cleaning tubs out and laundry....vacuuming and dusting....the house sat for 10 days....so alot to do. Also switching closets over....

One of my favorite things....drinking coffee in the morning and talking to God.

From my picture journal..Hollywood Studios.....Disney World 2009.
I will talk about our trip each day starting tomorrow with pictures....have a good day!
