The last couple of days of our Disneyland trip were so amazing. I can't even tell you the state of bliss that my family is in when we are there. It's such a magical place for all of my children. They get to ride the rides not only with us, but with Grandma and Grandpa, aunts and uncles and cousins. There's not a lot of things that are more fun than my children getting to ride Disneyland rides with their grandparents. One year was especially terrific, my parents went with us, so our kids got to go D'land with BOTH sets of their grandparents. HOW COOL IS THAT????
This year, more than ever, my kids were actually excited to see the characters. In the past, they couldn't have cared less if there was a character around, but not this year!!!!
And what girl isn't a princess at heart?
We kept finding "hidden Mickeys". Maddison was the one that spotted them the best (thanks to those Albrecht eyes!!!!). Can you see this one? It was a piece of glass in the cement outside the gates of California Adventure, it's only about 2-3 inches across!!!! Togetherness has no price.
Look what I found!!!! Not a hidden Mickey, and I've seen it before, but this time I took a picture of me by the secret Club 33 just for fun!!!! Then something very special happened. Randy's mom has been wanting to go back to see the park during Christmas time and this year she decided that because we had just bought 5 day passes, to upgrade to an annual pass for all of us would not be that much more money. So, Peggy bought us all annual passports with the promise that we would take another family trip down for Christmas!!!! I can't tell you how exciting it was for me to actually become an annual passport holder. For as many times as I have been to Disneyland, I have never had an annual passport!!!!
Can you see the excitement on my face? I am such a Disneyland nerd!!!! And I am so excited to be able to go back anytime we want!!!! It's such a generous gift for Peggy to give us for Christmas. I can't wait to go back over and over this year!!!!! Yes, I cried!!! I told you I was a D'land nerd!!!
I can't wait for more fun times like these........

My favorite part of the trip!!! A whole week with this guy.......
Oh yea, and don't forget stealing smooches on the rides in the dark!!!!!
I know we just got back, but my clock is ticking for the next time we get to go down!!!!! If you haven't been down to see Mickey lately or ever, it's time. Do it, you wont regret it!!!!
