Disney: Day Five :)

Our last day was spent at Hollywood Studios! It was so much fun! There were some awesome shows and rides, and naturally, one more day of fun family time!

 Big Cousin, Little Cousin, and Tiny Cousin ready for fun! :)

 Addie spotted her fave on the wall! She didn't mind getting close to this one. :)

 Waiting for the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse show to start.

 LOVE this baby!

 Family pic... Addie wasn't looking at the camera in any of them!

 Thanks for such a fun time, Nonna and Papa! :)

 Waiting for the parade to start... "Here, Lexi, let me help you with those crackers."

 Addie loved waving to the characters during the parade!

 They had one street COVERED in lights to start the Christmas season. It was beautiful!

What a great trip! :)

Disney: Day Four :)

We started this day at Chef Mickey's for an awesome breakfast! The characters come around to each table... which Abbie LOVED! Addie, on the other hand, was not as thrilled. We will get the "Addie w/ character" pics on our next trip. :)

 Papa and Nonna with the grandgirls :)

 Nonna and Addie :)

 This is as close as Addie would get for a while...

 We managed to distract her enough to get this picture with her fave, Donald. :)

This is backwards! Daddy Bob did most of the riding during the trip... don't let him fool ya. :)

 We saw Daisy on our way into Epcot! We didn't stay there long because LSU played Arkansas that afternoon... you know, back when LSU played football? Apparently, the team quit before the National Championship game. Don't get me started.

We watched the game at the ESPN Zone... such a cool place! Tons of LSU fans there! It definitely helped that LSU won! :)

Disney: Day Three :)

Day three was Thanksgiving Day. We went back to Magic Kingdom... starting with a breakfast with the princesses in Cinderella's Castle! We told Abbie that we had a surprise for her, and she was so excited to find out that we got to go IN the castle! :) It was really cute... they call for each princess and her family to join the princesses in the Royal Ballroom. Everyone calls you "sir" or "madam" and the princesses come by and visit you while you eat. The girls loved it... even Addie! I guess she could tell they were people, so she was good with it.

 Of course, it may have been okay with her since she had a cinnamon roll in front of her the whole time. :)
We sat down, they brought the plate, and she yelled, "Bissscitttsss!!!" :) Love her.

 Big smiles with Aurora!

Here she is with all three girls. :)

 Princess Ariel. :)

 Snow White... she reminds me of my old boss. :)

Belle... she talked with us about things in her "homeland of France." They never get out of character--even when they talk to adults! Crazy.

 After breakfast, the girls had a costume change, and we were off to find characters and ride some rides. Here is Lexi... full of cuteness!

 Here is the Dumbo Magic Carpet Ride! Addie loved it!

 Sweet cousin moments. :)

We were proud of Addie for getting so close to Princess Tiana... she was so nice! She saw that Addie was nervous, so she just sat right down and talked to the girls and Addie sat right down! :)

 Addie had about 20398547 suckers in Disney World.

 Addie even got to ride in the go-karts with Daddy! :) Such a big girl!

 My Dad and Daddy Bob! :)

 Amber and I had our own car... we laughed the entire time! We were horrible drivers!

Trae and Abbie's car :)

 Cute pic!

 I can't remember what this ride was... it was fun and relaxing, though. :)

 Daddy/Daughter moment :)

Good times! :)

That evening, we had Publix Thanksgiving dinner (it was delish!) and enjoyed a relaxing night. I don't know how I didn't get any pictures at dinner. :(

 I did get this cute one! Bathtime for the little cousins!

...and my sweetie in her Thanksgiving dress. :)

Disney: Day Two :)

We went to Animal Kingdom on our second day in Disney World. I'd never been there before, and I absolutely loved it! I would recommend it to everyone! :)

Lots of sweet cousin moments :)

Disney folks are genius (obviously). They just take the Dumbo ride and put a different animal on the end at each park. The girls loved each one!

 Addie is definitely an Aunt Amber fan! :)

 Here we are at the "pep talk" before meeting a character... 
"C'mon, Addie. He's not scary. It will be fun!"

Addie's reaction. Poor baby.

 Calmed down at the Lion King show. It was pretty awesome... she loved all of the shows since the characters were a safe distance away. :)

 ...aaaand she loved dessert. Shocker.

 Excited at the parade! Love that face!
...along with the fact that she didn't put down her fork. :)

Here's who she was waving to... her fave. :)
Looks like he's waving back!

There were also lots of slides at Animal Kingdom. Addie loves a slide!

 Beignets, anyone?

The safari ride was pretty awesome... There were so many beautiful animals! Addie was amazed. We were on a bumpy ride, so I didn't get many pics of her w/ the animals in the background. Here she is with a bull of some sort?

Overall, I have to say this was one of my favorite days! So fun!
