Big Christmas Surprise!


We're going to DISNEY WORLD!!!!


The kids still don't know!!!!!


Remember our advent calendar this year?

              
Well, if you look closely you'll notice that December 20 -22 say SURPRISE!  The surprise is we are picking the kids up from school early today (today's their last day before break) and driving straight to the airport.  They have no idea!  I don't think I've been this excited about something since I was a kid.  I can't wait to tell them where we're going!  They have no clue!  It's going to be so awesome!

We'll be coming home on the evening of the 23rd, so it's just a quick trip.  The kids have never been to Disney World at this time of year.  We've been before during the summer.  If you've never been to a Disney park at Christmastime, you need to go.  The magic is somehow even more magical.

I may be a bit biased.  In case you don't know, I grew up about 30 minutes away from Disneyland in California.

Yep, I've pretty much been a mouseketeer my whole life!  No wonder, I'm so excited!

Don't judge the bangs - it was hot - and hot + bangs = disaster

Either you're never too old to believe in the magic of Disney or once a nerd always nerd - take your pick.  ;)

I just can't wait to see the look on my kiddos faces when we tell them what the big surprise is!

So I'm signing off until after Christmas!  I hope you all have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

  24. Have a great time! We took our boys to Disneyland back in March. I packed their suitcases when they were at school, then we headed to the airport when they got home. They didn't find out where we were going until we were on the airplane! My oldest kept asking "what's in Anaheim?"
