Isn't there a recession going on? Take a trip to Disneyland, you'd never know it. We took you there last week, and while it costs actual body parts to buy tickets, everyone and their mother was there. Their mothers, and their baby brothers, and their uncles and their elderly grandmothers, and their cousins Jim.

It was actually a refreshing site, to see the country up and about, happily waiting in 3-hour lines for It's a Small World (song is still stuck in my head). Refreshing, until we came across the Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique and saw little girls who looked like this:

The disturbing part was not that these eight year olds were getting hair, makeup and nails done to look like princesses, but that their parents booked the appointments SEVEN months in advance. Really.

Anyway, enough sarcasm. We were there for your cousin's 4th birthday and we had a LOVELY time! I would donate more body parts to watch her meet Cinderella and Snow White and Sleeping Beauty all over again. You were a little too young to appreciate anything BUT, you people watched, you saw your first Christmas tree, you were surrounded by your family, and I swear you enjoyed dinner at Ariel's Grotto. Sounds like a strip club. Is that why you enjoyed it?!? No, too young...

  1. Ariel's Grotto? Who at the Mouse House let THAT one slip by. It DOES sound like a strip club. Interesting. Can't wait to see pics!
