Twas the Night Before Christmas

Twas the day before Christmas all through the house and all that I heard was "We go see Mickey Mouse."
 Friday was Christmas Eve and we spent the day at Disney's Hollywood Studios again.  We repeated the strategy from the previous day and rode the Rockin Roller Coaster and The Tower of Terror first.  This paid off at the end of the day because we ended up riding the Rockin Roller Coaster three times!  Of course we had to go visit Mickey and friends, Handy Manny and Pooh at Playhouse Disney.  This time Lucy made a friend nearby and danced during most of the show.  She napped while the "adults" had one last Championship match on Toy Story Mania.  Adam won by a narrow margin. 

Lucy woke up from her nap and we had lunch at the Sci Fi Drive - In.  After lunch we caught one of the American Idol shows.  Lucy loved watching the people sing and danced along to all of the songs. 

We had reservations at the Brown Derby for dinner.  We got there a little early and Lucy and Evelyn passed the time playing on the benches around the Fantasia bushes.  I swear at one point they were discussing all of the world's problems like Charlie Brown and Linus.

 Dinner was really good, but all Lucy wanted was "sice" (that means ice chips) because the poor girl was cutting more teeth.  She asked the waiter for "sice feez" (ice please) and he brought her a glow-in-the-dark ice cube.  We ended the night strolling through the Osbourne Lights.  Lucy loved to try and catch the "snow."  So we headed back to the Villa to put Santa's cookies and milk out.  The stocking were hung on the stairway with care with hopes that Saint Nicholas soon would be there.  The children were nestled all snug in their beds, some with dum dums still stuck to their heads.  And Ma in her pjs and me in my cap both settled down because we both needed a NAP.

Oh ANOTHER amazing outfit! How do you get the bow to stay in her hair without a headband? It would slide right out of Hannah's hair without one.

I always have a headband ready :) She won't wear them anymore. I think she has more hair than what it looks like, but there is always a no slip grip on the bow.
