I loved the Chipmunks. Probably because I knew who was in the costumes, which made it even more hilarious. They did a fun routine and were so much fun to watch.
Meeting Mickey and Minnie. (Which it turns out I knew them too but didn't know who they were at the time)
I didn't want to be in the picture with Mickey and Minnie but Barrett wasn't real crazy about letting a giant mouse hold him. I took him up to see if he would just stand with them but he was more interested in the balloons.
The best picture we got with the Mice. They had a professional taking pictures too so I'm hoping it's good.
Now's i'll let you in on a little bit of my crazy...you all know I'm super emotional, especially when it has to do with Barrett and my little family. When the show finally started and Mickey and Minnie came out on the stage. I just had these huge tears in my eyes. Growing up, we didn't have a lot of money. My family never took a trip to Disney World (we've all been at one point or another except for my older brother and dad but er never went together). The only time we went to Disney on Ice was when I won a trip. We just didn't do a lot of those kinds of things. So to have this fun event right in our community that families didn't have to take out a loan to afford made me so happy. Looking around and seeing all these families enjoy the morning together just overwhelmed me. Seeing the look on little Elise's face with Elsa came out to sing "Let it Go" almost made my heart explode. I was literally fighting back tears. (Yes, I am a lunatic) But I think the thing that really got me was knowing so many of the people that volunteered to be a part of the event. I knew so many people in those costumes that could have been anywhere else on a Friday night (rehearsal) and Saturday morning but they chose to be there and so many of them commented on how much they enjoyed getting to be a part of the show. They all worked so hard and it really showed. We had so much fun. Even Patrick enjoyed it. We're already looking forward to next year's show.
