Magical Mickey


The boys and I were invited to go see Mickey's Magic Show with friends downtown today, a wonderul opportunity for Mouse Lovers.

We all carpooled down together, and when Chris saw that Bryn and Shay were sporting their Mickey ears, you bet we put ours on. (Luckily, I had already found and packed them!) I just love that we were getting good use out of those Mickey Ears we bought in Disney World. But these kids were so EXCITED. So were the Mommies!

As soon as they action started the bigger kids sat still, hypnotized. I had brought some light up sticks, you know the kind that snap and glow. The kids thought they were their wands. Me, I was just happy they weren't asking me to spend obscene amounts of money on Magic Mickey Wands.

In another effort to save a penny or two, I had also packed the remnants of our modified monster mix, a snack mix of cheerios, M&Ms, and craisins. Another cheap big hit with the kids. And orange M&Ms turned Sam and Shaylee's faces orange, which I couldn't see until I snapped this picture, as we were sitting in the dark, I just thought he kids were a little sticky. But they were having a great time, snacking and watching Mickey.

We tried to get the kids to pose in their hats. Not quite. Plus it was naptime, as evidence by Sam's big hat meltdown.

Luckily, they're resting now. It's good

Looks like a lot of fun! I just can't believe you're already on post 311!

Oh, I do. It's been getting harder and harder to talk about things that aren't what the kids are doing. I'll probably welcome some time away in January.
