Christmas and Disneyland.
Well, we had a great time at my parent's house visiting with everyone. It was so nice to see my Grandparents and Aunt and Uncle. Also it was great to finally put a face to my brother's new girlfriend Rhiannon. She is a doll and was so patient with the kiddo's.
We opened presents on Saturday (dec. 2) and I had 2 itty bitty presents that I told the kids were their "big gift". One was a miniature snowglobe of Minnie Mouse for Kaitlyn and a pressed coin book for Aidan with a picture of Disneyland on it. At first they opened it and just kind of looked at me like "These are our big gifts????" It was really funny, but then I broke down and told Kaitlyn to read what it said on Aidan's coin book, and said "We are going there on Monday!". Her face really lit up then, she was so excited! And I don't think she slept very much for 2 nights. It was such a fun way to tell them. Although Aidan didn't know what to think since he had never been there.
On Monday when we got there we took the tram over and Aidan kept saying "This is fun!". And we hadn't even gotten inside the park yet.
The park closed at 6:00 that night and so it wasn't croweded at all. Who want's to spend all that money for the park to close early? We just about walked on all the rides. It took us longer to buy lunch than to get on any of the rides.
The first two rides we went on were Pirates and the haunted house. Aidan looked like this for all of pirates and the beginning of the Haunted house. After that he enjoyed everything and most rides he said "I want to do that again!"
Kaitlyn had a great time getting some signatures for her autograph book that my cousin got for her when she was at Disneyland Paris. Her main concern was meeting Minnie Mouse. And luckily
we did run into her in toon town! Kaitlyn was very happy for that! All in all it was a wonderful day. And we are all looking forward to going back another day. Next time we would like to do a few days so that we can go to California Disney as well. The kids were exhausted by the time 6:00 rolled around and I don't think we could have done anything more they were so tired. Although they have both asked me when we are going back.
