A little Disneyland Cheer and Dancing Stars

Yesterday we went to Disneyland for the first of many trips (yeah passes) to enjoy all the Christmas festivites, and the park looked absolutey amazing! I LOVE everything about the Christmas season, so the sooner we can start the celebrations the better! Disneyland and I are so on the same page that it is totally okay to decorate after Halloween! Yes, my house is already decorated...but I did wait until about 10 days after Halloween-and if you think I'm nuts, just come on over and see how much jollier it makes you feel. Why limit that feeling to just one month, you know? Anyways, the lengths they go to to turn Disneyland into a Christmas spectacular is amazing. I would love to see their storage unit. Everything is soooo beautiful and there are so many lights and trees, etc. This is also the first time I went with Carson, and when you go with little kids, you really see it through a childs eyes so much more. We also went with Grandma Karen, Lori and Savannah, and the boys came and met up with us after work. The kids were again angels and had a blast. I think Carsons favorites were Small World and the Carousel. Here's a few fun pics:

Trevor is making fun of how many pictures Lori and I take- maybe next time he should just smile :)

I had the kids all dressed in xmas gear for a pic with santa...maybe next time!

Carson and Savannah on a fun drive in toon town...Carson is even showcasing his snacks!
Again, the fun doesn't end there. Apparently Lori and I are celebrity magnets. Our blogs might be the next This time we got to see the one and only Jennie Garth. They had a taping for dancing with the stars, so naturally with our celebrity obsession (seriously i'm just kidding about that) we wanted to be up close. So we wasted almost 2 hours waiting....for a dissapointing outcome. Her partner was sick so she danced with Mickey. LAME!!!! The lamest part was they were talking up the crowd like he was going to be there when they knew the whole time he wasn't. Even though he's not so much the celeb, I was totally pumped for some good dancing. In my other life I am an amazing dancer after all. So we were bummed, and even missed out on our visit to Santa, but it was kind of interesting to see how it all goes down. All those posters you see people waving...totally fake and handed out by the crew! Mickey and Jennie's entrance and dance...had to do a couple takes. Not quite as cool as I'm sure it will look on T.V. I figure we're moving up on the celebrity food chain in our who knows who's next....Stay Tuned!

The best part was how excited Carson was to see them dance...he LOVES mickey- could care less about the weird one in white!
