A wonderful weekend of firsts

We had an awesome weekend!

On Saturday Joe took Victoria to get her ears pierced while I had Morgan at cheerleading practice. She was so excited. She had been asking to get her ears pierced and he said she did really well. She didn't even cry. We had warned her ahead of time that it would hurt and she told me "it little bit ouch", but otherwise was okay. She now has very pretty ruby earrings (her birthstone).

But, Sunday was the really big day of our weekend. We started out bright and early for a girl's day in New York City. It was me and the girls, along with their cousin Kayla and her mom and their friend Ava and her mom. All four of them are pretty close in age (from 4 to 6). We took the train, and it was Victoria's first train ride. We went up to go see the new Disney movie, The Princess and the Frog, which comes out this Friday. They had preshowings for the last few weeks in New York and Los Angeles. This was Victoria's first time seeing a movie in the movie theater. She really enjoyed the movie (we all did). After the movie, they had what was called the "Ultimate Disney Experience". It was at the Roseland Ballroom and it was a lot of fun. They had a play area, a craft area (all themed like the movie), and best of all meet and greets with all of the disney princesses (including the new princess from the movie Princess Tiana). This was Victoria's first time meeting the princesses and she had a wonderful time. Cinderella was her favorite.

After all of that we grabbed something to eat and then went to Rockefeller Center to see the Christmas tree and of course had to stop in American Girl (since it is just about right across the street from Rockefeller Center). Morgan loves American Girl and Victoria did too. She wanted everything in the store of course - LOL.

Everyone was really tired after a long wonderful day, so we headed back to the train station to come home. Then, to top it all off, when we got home Morgan lost her very first tooth!!! Because, after a day like that it only seemed fitting that a fairy come to visit our house.

  1. That looks like it was SUCH a wonderful day! I can;t believe all of the princesses! Victoria is sure catching up to Morgan in the height department! I must know- where is Morgan's dress from!? Too cute! All of the girls look so posh in thier coats in NYC.

  2. I love going to NY at the holidays. What an adventure. Looks like the girls had a great time.

  3. Adorable coats and hats! And as a Disney fan, I think all of those pics are great!
