As expected, but not hoped for, the surprise didn't get a huge reaction.
In my head I had planned to open the gifts on Christmas Day, after snuggling together in our jammies and watching the Disney Christmas Parade.
That was the plan...until I realized that Christmas fell on Sunday.
Sunday meant that we would need to leave the house at 8 am for the church service and leave town immediately after that for Christmas with Gregg's family. Because of that we did Santa, Christmas at my grandparents, my parents and the Disney surprise all in one day. We were all very overwhelmed to say the least.
Belle was heading into spoiled brat mode by the time we got around to the 3 Disney gifts. She had been opening gifts all day and hadn't napped for days.
Evie just wanted to steal Belle's Hello Kitty slippers.
Gift 1 Reaction- 'Seriously, clothes???'
Gift 2 Reaction- Utter Excitement. She squealed.
Gift 3 Reaction- I cried. She hugged me and squealed again. Then she got really confused.
She told us that she didn't want to talk about Disney World. She just wanted to wear her costume.
And little Snow White, who was having quite a traumatic hair day, got dressed up, too.
If that's not the look of Disney excitement, then I don't know what is... Haha.
It took a few days for it to sink in, but Belle is in full-on Disney mode now. She has been watching videos on YouTube and has already planned out her first day in the parks. At the moment, she wants to go to Hollywood Studios first to see the Beauty and the Beast Show.
We've started our count-up calendar, too.
Come on January, fly by!
