Disney On Ice with Maylin was fantastic!
She didn't know where she was going. She just knew that we were going to see princesses. Her eyes lit up like Christmas trees when I told her she needed to dress up like a princess. She decided not to wear any of her "dress up costumes". "Dey too itchy". So we opted for a pretty dress, her fancy shoes, and a crown. Prettiest princess I know!
Doesn't my little girl look like a BIG girl! Rip out my heart! Seriously, she needs to stop growing! :)
Semi Related side note: If you haven't seen the movie "Courageous" you should. Not because of the acting, but for the message. For those of you who have seen it you will understand why I played 'Ring Around the Rosies' in the center of uptown Charlotte as if Maylin and I were the only ones there. Yep, I felt silly at first, but letting my daughter feel like she is the only thing that matters felt even better!
When we got to the arena we quickly went potty, and bought one treat. (The nifty little light thing below?) Then it was off to our seat for the show to begin! Maylin was silenced. This was the expression on her face throughout the program.
At one point I was wondering if she was really enjoying it. Then I reached over and gently scratched her leg. The giggles and smiles I got out of that were priceless. Yep. She was having the time of her life.
The following pictures are some of Maylin's favorite pictures from the evening. You might enjoy them, but I know Maylin will love seeing them on the blog so bear with me here for a moment!
Disney may have it's faults, I don't really know? But last night they surely made my little girls dreams come true!
Checking out her loot from the show. She was happy, and I was happy because she was happy! Makes for a wonderful evening.
