Sick of it yet?

I know I have posted a bazillion times about our trip, but I thought you might want to hear this story!!

At Goofy's Kitchen dinner, a bunch of characters come around to your table and sign autographs, take photos, etc. We had our fair share of creatures....Goofy, Pluto, Minnie Mouse, Alice, Chip and Dale, Brer Fox ....


Savannah eyed Fairy Godmother in another section of the restaurant. We were close to leaving, and there was no way she was going to get to us in time. And, if you don't know Savannah, then let me tell you that you would have thought we had just sentenced her to death. She was devastated. Bawling. So as we passed the front desk to leave, the amazing 'cast members/employees' noticed her puffy, red face and whispered to me to stay put for a second.

And just like that....

Bibbidee-bobbidee-boo.

"Were you crying for me, my dear?"

If you look close, you can see how Savvy is instantly content. That is one of my favorite pictures from the whole trip. Fairy Godmother stayed and talked with her for a while and Savannah had her life complete.


Lance and I have discussed what the pull is while you're there at Disneyland. What is it that makes you so happy? The escape from reality? What makes you so willing to throw your money around? The ever present soundtrack? I suppose it's different for everyone, but I think it has something to do with 'when your heart is in your dreams...no request is too extreme...' They believe it there, those wonderful Disney folks.

I'll be there five weeks from today! And tomorrow for that matter!!! YAY! And it is magical and wonderful there! Although, at this moment I'm feeling a little twinge of actually being there without the one who loves it the most. *tear*

well - we know what OUR escape from reality is. :) And I LOVE that they're SO kind about little kids crying. Maybe I'll send Mabel there?

My two boys are looking over at my shoulder and are upset that I won't replay the jedi training video over and over and over for them! What a fun trip!
