The Rest of The Story

So I have waited way too long to finish this in the small snippets I had planned, so you get a monster post. I will not bore you too bad I hope but oh well, it's my blog.

Tuesday Morning-- We spent a couple of hours at Animal Kingdom before we headed back to the hotel for a nap prior to the Christmas Party that night. Everybody but Hutch and I rode the safari ride first thing. Finn especially loved the baby giraffe that came so close to the truck she could have touched it. Then we went to Rafiki's Planet Watch which was a huge hit with all three kids. Chloe got a little too friendly with a certain cricket though. After lunch we hit the hotel and rested. Then it was Christmas party time. Jeremy and Hutch had a man night and did not go, instead they scoped the ladies at the pool.

At the party, we did it all. We managed to luck up and have a front row seat to the first parade, rode rides, saw fairies and princesses, and ate free cookies and apple slices. We also saw a guy who held up the princess line for a long time determined to see Belle and the Beast. It was a little weird how adamant he was that he would see them. I never saw any kids with him either. We managed to make it all the way to the midnight hour and had a lot of fun.

Wednesday morning we slept in and headed to Epcot for a breakfast with the princesses. There were a few instances of grumpiness but we managed to get past it. Epcot was a lot more fun than I thought it would be even though it was getting cold. We really enjoyed the storytellers and the Kim Possible mission we did. Other enjoyable moments of the day were the Figment ride, the boat ride that Finn thought was so cool, the Little Mermaid show, and Turtle Talk with Crush. A bad part--finding a bug in my dinner. It was small but when I spotted it, it was still moving and I had been eating for a while. Yuck!

Thursday morning it was back to Magic Kingdom bright and early for Finley and Chloe's transformations into real life princesses. Since I have already shared those pics with those lucky enough to be my friend on F@cebook, I will put up others. Favorites from this day was Tomorrowland Speedway, the teacups, and getting to meet Rapunzel (we waited 1 1/2 hours to do this). Chloe, who was dressed in a Rapunzel dress, even got to dance with her. She was so cute, Chloe, not Rapunzel. There was another Christmas party that night so we had to get out early. We headed to Downtown Disney for dinner and a little bit of shopping.

Friday morning, Jeremy and I took Finn and Hutch to Animal Kingdom again and Chloe went with TeeTee and Granna to Magic Kingdom. They did not have as much fun as we did because the Christmas parade was being taped and there was a lot of extra stuff in the park--stages and crowds, mostly. At Animal Kingdom, we filled Finley's book with stamps and went back to Rafiki's where she got a button for answering a question right during a demonstration. Then we ate a late lunch and raced back to Epcot for the Candlelight Processional. It was wonderful, but since I had run all the way around to get there, I missed the beginnings of it trying to catch my breath. After that it was back to the hotel for our last night in the happiest place on Earth.
