Day 4 (The Last Full Day- At Sea!)

Every day was jam packed with fun and activities.  On the final day we woke up and hurried and got dressed because it was time to meet all of the princesses (with no wait using our tickets) and the Disney Jr. characters. We were almost late because Gabby slept so late! It was magical and the highlight of our day for sure! Every princess took their time making Gabby feel like a princess her self, I think she really believed that they were THE princesses we've read about and watched in movies.

After meeting the Disney Jr. characters we had lunch with Grandma and Grandpa and we all talked about all of the fun of seeing the princess and Doc McStuffins!

We then enjoyed the pool and hot tub with lots of swimming.  Then Gabby had some special time with Grandma and Grandpa while Mommy and Daddy went on a date.  Our service at Palo was great and it was nice to have a little time with just the two of us.  After dinner we bumped into Gabby and Grandma leaving the theater.  We happened upon lines that you could wait in to say goodbye to all of the Disney characters.  We lucked out and were able to help Gabby have a dance party with Minnie, Chip and Dale, and Goofy and to give all of the princesses hugs farewell.  It was a fun way to end our vacation, but bittersweet because it was official that we were going to wake up and head off of the boat and back to the reality of phones and responsibilities.

Rock Star Party

Gabby's party was everything she imagined it.  The 22 girls enjoyed getting their hair and make up done.  Then they all put on their head set microphone and then headed onto stage and enjoyed performing their favorite songs.  The girls seemed to really like the party that Gabby planned.  After cake and gifts the girls went back to the stage for an encore (or 5).  A few of the moms at the party even attempted to escape from one of our escape rooms.  Gabby seemed to love having the run of Escape Artist and showing off the rooms to all of her friends.  It is amazing how many people love and care for Gabby.  We are so grateful for all of the friends and fun that was had at her party!  

Happy Birthday Grandma!!

Today is Gabby's Grandma's birthday! We were very lucky that we saw Grandma close to her birthday so we could celebrate together.  We all really enjoyed seeing Grandma and Grandpa, especially Gabby.  It took her about 5 minutes to warm up to them, but then it was hugs, kisses, and showing off for the two and a half days they stayed with us.  We celebrated Grandma's birthday with a quiet dinner and a birthday cake; although it was Grandma's birthday cake, I think Gabby thoroughly enjoyed it more than even the birthday girl! Grandma graciously gave Gabby the large white chocolate square with her birthday greeting written on it.  Gabby took large bites into it and LOVED it!

The day they were leaving Gabby and I took Grandma to Chik-Fil-A (to see Gabby in her element) for lunch.  While we all ate our chicken nuggets Gabby grabbed Mommy's drink and took big gulps, because she is too big for a juice box.  Then, once she was bored with her lunch she began waving at each…

Deep In the Heart of Texas!

Gabby's dance recital theme this year was "Texas."  Gabby's tap and jazz class chose "Deep In the Heart of Texas!"  Gabby worked extremely hard to learn her dance over the past two months and I must say she did amazing! I loved watching her put on a big smile and shake her hips in her tutu while pumping her heart in the dance.  She did very well and seemed so confident while performing on stage (although that wasn't truly the case).

Yesterday at the dress rehearsal Gabby heard people laughing (because her dance is so stinking adorable) and Gabby was very upset that people were laughing at her.  I calmed her down after ensuring her everyone loved their dance and were just being interactive because they were enjoying singing along \the song and clapping when while singing.  They ran through their dance twice on stage and did amazing the second time, but I think the fact that they ran through their dance twice made Gabby feel like they weren't doing i…
