The girls had so much fun meeting the characters and getting their little t-shirts autographed. The princesses and fairies were so sweet to them and paid extra-special attention to Grace.
Our third night there we ate dinner with the princesses at Ariel's Grotto and the girls were in heaven! (So were Phillip and my dad!) Alexa was so excited to meet Aurora and told her that they had the same kind of hair. It was very cute watching them compare their golden locks.
As for myself, I got to meet Captain Jack Sparrow and was pretty excited about that. But dangit, why did I have to close my eyes for the stinkin' picture! (this one's for you, Gina!)I love this picture of Adelle and Alexandra's Tinkerbell doll:
I feel like our vacation was just so much fun that I can't even write about it all! We just had so much fun being together as a family and watching our girls experience the magic of Disneyland for the first time. Alexa could not have been happier with all the new experiences, and Phillip and I were so impressed by how well the employees at the park took care of Grace's special needs. I was so excited to be home after such a long and tiring vacation, but I was so sad to leave Disneyland. I can't wait to go back again!
I found this picture from when Phillip and I went in 2002 when I was pregnant with Alexa:
And here we are now!

Since we were busy preparing to leave for our vacation the next day we didn't have time to carve pumpkins as we had planned. Thankfully Alexa improvised and didn't know that you don't traditionally carve a pumpkin without gutting it first. She was content to just carve a face in it and stick glow-sticks inside to make it glow. It kind of broke my heart at first, but I was so relieved that she didn't know the difference and was still happy. I love how she included cheeks and eyelashes on her pumpkin. She is definitely a girl!
