this was the opening number. it sure got the girls excited and riled up! They were excitedly pointing out all the characters they recognized.
Evie watched the entire 2 hour show. She didn't make a peep. I was worried, because it was really loud and bright, but it didn't bother her one bit. She even fell asleep toward the end, which was the loudest part. We went to the movies today, and she was perfectly behaved again. I guess I just need to get her out of the house more when she's being grumpy.
Ben's favorite was Jack, the pumpkin king. He probably was the best skater we saw. Kiersten was afraid during the halloween part of the show.
Ben was pretty impressed with Jasmine's toned abs.
most of the princesses were there with their princes.
Kiersten was so excited during most of the show.
these mickey ears came with some cotton candy. Evie drank her bottle during the intermission, and then watched the second part of the show.
the toys from toy story got the biggest applause, and they were only on at the very end. but people were freaking out when they came out. Kara got pretty excited about buzz lightyear.
part of the finale. I still don't know how Evie could sleep through all that without even stirring.
Everyone had fun, and I'm glad we went. If they come back next year, I'm sure we'll go again. I never used to believe it when people said they'd rather see their kids have fun than do something they think is fun. But it's totally true. Seeing your kids so happy and excited is way more fun than doing anything else I can think of. After the show, we picked up Ben's mom from the airport, and we had a pretty fun day with her today, going out to eat, shopping, and seeing the movie "megamind". but I am super tired now, and it's not even 6:00 yet. Hopefully the girls will go to bed early so we can have another fun filled day with Grandma tomorrow.
