On Christmas morning we woke up and opened presents. The girls were both excited. Makenna was super excited over everything she opened...even if she wasn't exactly sure what it was. The girls were spoiled rotten. My mom made "num-num" for breakfast. We cleaned up and put toys away. Then we all sat around the t.v. and watched the movie Proposal. It was funny. My grandparents came over around 3pm and we ate a yummy dinner! Bryn downed a ton of food including jello! Then we opened presents from my grandparents and then went to bed! It was a good day!

For Christmas Eve, my Aunts and Cousins came over for dinner. We ate chili and cornbread and had lots of sweets. We had a good time. We watched the kids open their presents. Makenna and Bryn were both spoiled! Kenna loved having my Aunt Mimi here and attached to her quickly. Mimi helped her with her new sticker books and read her stories. Thanks Mimi!

On Friday, Dec. 18, we went to Disneyland. I love Disneyland. I love it, I love it, I love it. I have never been at Christmas time and was excited to see it all decorated. My mom, sister, the girls and I all went. My sister had a test at school so we had to wait till after 2nd period to pick her up. We got to D-Land about 10am. Disneyland opened around 8am so we thought it would be busy. CA Disney opened at 10am so we went there first to get on all the rides without a wait. My sister's friend's mom works at D-Land and got us 2 tickets to get in. My mom had some really old tickets...probably about 45 years old. It was like $5.75 to get into the park and there were individual tickets to get into each ride. We tried to use them. The ticket office spent about 10 minutes on the phone with a manager. They then told us that we could go to the gate and we would be let in. How crazy is that?! The ticket guy was astonished that we had tickets that were that old. On our way to the gate a worker heard us say we had old tickets. He came over and told us he could switch our tickets out for park-hopper passes. He signed us in because he wanted our old tickets.
We went to CA Disney and walked right onto Hollywood Tower of Terror. It was a lot of fun. Then we on the roller coaster, ferris wheel, Bugs Life rides, Merry-go-Round, and a whole lot of other rides with hardly any wait. It was so nice. So around 3pm we went over to Disneyland. We waited about 1.5 hours in line to see the princesses and take pictures. Kenna was so excited. My sister and Kenna got their face painted. We went over to see Tiana, the new princess, but her line was already closed. We spent some time in Toon Town. D-Land was soooo packed. It was ridiculous. We went on the jungle cruise and went into the Tiki room and that was about it, besides Toon Town rides. We left the park around 8pm. The girls behaved so well. We didn't loose Makenna this time :). I loved it. Thanks mom for taking us!!!
