Globetrotters, Disney on Ice, and Hugo

For Christmas my grandparents have generously sent a check every year for us to by the kids a gift from them. Last year and this year we have used it to buy each of the kids a ticket to an event. Normally we would not be able to do these things, so it is such a fun surprise! The kids love to see on Christmas day what kind of tickets they receive. This year the boys went to see the Harlem Globetrotters. They loved seeing all the tricks that the players were able to do. Reuben and Lincoln were really excited to get their picture with Too Tall, who is actually shorter than Reuben. Unfortunately our computer has given me problems and lost the photo :(

Kaitlyn's wasn't a surprise this year. I asked her ahead of time if she'd like to go to Disney On Ice or go see Hugo in the "real" theater. (normally we only go to the dollar theater). She picked Hugo, she had read the book last year and was really excited to have the opportunity to see the movie in 3D no less. I was lucky enough to go with her to this. I loved seeing it in 3D. I think the last 3D movie I saw was a Michael Jackson one when I was a kid. Kaitlyn loved the movie and we both enjoyed having one on one time together!

Eve was surprised with Disney On Ice tickets. Eve and I were able to go together to this event. She is my chatter box! She talked my ear off on the car ride there. The show did a brief overview of The Frog Princess, Cinderella and Tangled. Tangled of course was the show stopper. The skaters even twirled up in the air holding onto fabric which looked like Rapunzel's hair. The second half of the show our friends invited us to come sit with them because they were only 5 rows from the ice. During the show I would lean over and say to Eve "isn't that cool" after a couple of times she asked a matter a factually , "Mom, could you please stop asking me questions". It made me smile.

All of the Disney princesses came out at the end dressed in white and gold to welcome Rapunzel to the princess club. It was very magical. Eve was waving to all of them the whole time :)

Fun!! I adore the way you use the Christmas money--what a clever idea. Most kids will probably forget another toy but they won't forget going to a special event like these!

I absolutely love this idea Kristen--thanks for sharing. The boys are adorable together. :)
