First girls slumber party

I love hotels, so when Daddy sent Mommy there to get a full night of sleep as her Christmas gift, I couldn't wait to go. I liked playing "library" with the drawers, ringing the door bell, and jumping on the bed. I enjoyed it so much, that Mommy asked if I wanted to have a slumber party with her. Of course I said yes! I shifted horizontally across the bed (luckily it was king size), and then conked out pretty much for 12 hours straight. Too bad Mommy couldn't do the same - she woke up after 6 hours! That was around the time that I laid my legs on her face. It was nice waking up next to Mommy. I hope we do this more often!

Merry Christmas!

This is my first Christmas where I started understanding the holiday. I celebrated by learning to sing some Christmas carols, making Christmas art and ornaments, and decorating Christmas cookies for Santa, friends and relatives. I even met Santa Claus for the first time.

I declared to my parents that "I have been good already". They must have told Santa because he gave me what I asked for - a book with Charlie & Lola! And of course lots of other goodies...

I have arrived

After all the anticipation, I finally made it to the castle [Disneyland]! It was even more wonderful than I imagined it to be. Seeing the fireworks over the castle illuminated in purple (my favorite color) was the best part, even if I did bury my head in Mommy's shoulder to block my ears from the noise. I enjoyed meeting Mickey, Santa Goofy, and Pluto and playing in their homes (especially Goofy's). The rides were fun too. I felt at home on the carousel, train, and horse drawn cable car, all of which we rode several times. Dumbo and Casey Circus Train were worth the long waits. I was totally speechless on Small World, Tea Cups, Pooh and Jungle Cruise; I didn't know quite what to make of them. I even rode a small roller coaster for the first time. When we went down the first hill, I screamed "Daddeeeee!" and Daddy yelled, "I got you!" and held me tight. Thereafter, I was super intrigued by all the other roller coasters. Since it was really crowded our last day, I opted to watch people on Splash Mountain and scream "Aaaaah!" as they went down. I can't wait to grow taller so I can ride the roller coasters.

Here is my look of "awe and wonderment" as I gaze upon the castle for the first time. I have to admit that I was disappointed that Cinderella was nowhere near the castle, and that I had to find her at a restaurant. But I did meet and got autographs from the main 5 princesses in the Disney sorority, so that was pretty cool.

I may not be smiling here with Cinderella, but when do I ever sit on any stranger's lap willingly???!

It was indeed The Happiest Place On Earth.
