I finally have time to post about our trip to Disney for the Princess to celebrate her birthday.  I have to warn you….PICTURE OVERLOAD! 

I would like to start by saying that as an offspring of Dexter, I have never sprung for expensive accomodations any time we have vacationed.  We visit Disney often, and have never stayed outside of the All Star Movies Resort.  Since it was just us girls, and there were 6 of us staying in ONE room, we decided to stay a little fancier.  We stayed at the Port Orleans Resort.  While it was nice, I will have to say that it was probably the only time this Momma will ever stay outside of the Value Resorts.  I just found that it wasn’t as kid friendly, so I was a little disappointed.  So, I paid, I stayed, but will never stray from the cheap sheets.LOL.

Anyway, we started the night at Rainforest Cafe. 

The girls splurged and even ordered a VOLCANO!  SG is now deathly afraid of the “Carillas” and it has been hilarious listening to her tell about those god-awful creatures:)


Christen and Hailey:


SG couldn’t wait to see Cinderella. That was the one thing she looked forward to the most.  We saw this Cinderella outside of the shops in Downtown Disney, and SG had to have her picture made.  Doesn’t she look like such a princess straddling Cinderella’s arm? IMG_2503

The next morning, we ate breakfast at the food court in the hotel, and then stayed by the pool until lunch.  I will have to say, this was the most RELAXING trip I’ve ever taken to Disney.  We actually got to see the pool!  Then we got ready because we had an appointment with the Fairy Godmother for a makeover.

That place is UNREAL!  So magical.  Almost made me want some glittery makeup and a tiara myself:)  So, SG got in her chair, ready to become a princess.


They did hair…


They did nails….


  And they did makeup.  This is my favorite picture from the boutique.  She sure knows how to pucker them lips for some lipstick!

Then it was time for some glitter.  Oh the glitter!!!!!


When all was said and done, she looked like a beautiful Princess!!!

But on the way out, we had to stop and take another picture with the fake Cinderella.  She looks a little more princessy than the last time.



Then it was the moment we had all been waiting for……CINDERELLA!  We had dinner with Cinderella, Prince Charming, the bad mommy and bad “Stisters”.  She could hardly contain herself while we were driving to the Grand Floridian.

The funniest part of the day was when SG was telling the “Bad Mommy” how mean she was to Cinderella.  That she ripped her dress, and “wocked” her out.  SG even went as far as to tell her “I not like you.  You’re a mean mommy!”  Needless to say, poor Lady Trumaine couldn’t keep a straight face.

Ahh….Prince Charming.  He was a little more princess than prince, I think. IMG_2569

The bad “stisters.”IMG_2576


Then….Cinderella asked SG to dance with her.  Y’all, this was priceless!  Her face was worth a million bucks!  IMG_2589 IMG_2590

Of course, we got a birthday cupcake. IMG_2593

Here’s the girls!


On our way home, Princess was all princessed out.  She wanted to take that nap she never got, so we took her hair down.


This was definitely one of those trips you will never forget.  As girls, sisters, mothers, daughters, it was UNFORGETTABLE!
