Allison - Looks like a wonderful, magical time! How fun! I have never seen DisneyLand decorated like that, beautiful! You have a lovely family!

Hugs! Sharon

Sheryl from Michigan

Looks like fun. Our daughters always enjoyed Disneyworld so much. . . especially when they were little and mesmerized by the Princesses.

What a special way to spend a 4th birthday.



Snow White is my FAVORITE!! Looks like you had a great time. Sorry to hear about your break-in. Hope everything is okay now. My sister and family have gone on a few Disney cruises. My niece Ava very matter-of-factly let the characters know that she was only there to see the Princesses. HA! Little girls all think alike!!

Allison- What a wonderful time you had at Disneyland. What a great way for your daughter to spend her Birthday. We are getting ready to celebrate my son Griffin's birthday. Lucky me I get to deal with Spiderman, Superman, Batman and the list goes on! Have a safe and fun week with your travels.


What great pics! What a wonderful week you had! i am sooo sorry to hear that someone stole some of your stuff before your trip! that is horrible! i hope you can get it back!
Looks like Evy had a fantastic birthday as well! :) Thanks so much for sharing! Have a great week :)


Oh, loved the Disney pictures even the Haunted Mansion and hearse! I am so excited to be going to Disney in Fl in April! But I think fall would be neat! Especially around Halloween! Great fun for you all! Lori


Looks like a wonderful trip. Your little girl looks like a true Queen. I have a grandaughter that will be four in Nov. I have really tried to start telling her God made her a special Princess. They all seem to be into that Princess stuff.Thanks for sharing.

How Fun! We used to goto Disney World in Florida when we lived there and my boys were growing up...


What a wonderful trip you had! I love Disney dressed for fall! We went for Thanksgiving many years ago and it brought back such nice memories! Your daughter is beautiful and looks like she had so much FUN! :)


Sounds like a wonderful trip! Disneyland is my absolute favorite place in the whole world and it's a good thing I live an hour and a half away or I'd be flying constantly! We were just there in August for our little man's birthday and they didn't have the Fall decorations out yet. Thanks for the wonderful pictures, those mum balls look beautiful!

Have a great week,

Ooh how adorable does Evy look Allison! That smile on her face in the last photo is just precious!! I'm glad she had such an unforgettable birthday experience, and also that you all had such a fab trip!! I would love to go in the Haunted Mansion-it looks brilliant fun!! I also really like the hearse !!Hope you don't have too exhausting a week-safe trip and 'see' you when you get back!xx


OMG Allison,
I'm so glad you all had such a wonderful time. You are such a beautiful family. Evy is a doll. I love that Haunted Mansion all dressed up for Halloween. I've seen it like that and I love it.
Can't wait to hear about your antiquing.
So sorry about the break in of your car.
I hope Evy remembers when she is older.
Come visit me soon.

I'm Dayami. I saw your blog at Daisycottage.
I love your Disney photos, so much fun! We are BIG Disney lovers! Loving your fall decor too and that little pumpkin dude is too cute for words.
Have a great day!

Mary Isabella

That looks like lots of fun. All the Haloween decorations were neat.


How adorable sweet! What a fun birthday for your little princess.



Oh I am a Disney girl at heart...we spent our honeymoon at Disneyworld and are always thinking about when we'll next take the kids. So glad you all had a lovely time (and yes, we went last year to Disneyworld at Halloween. There were some lovely things and some very creepy ones! The parade scared James to death!)


So glad you're back Allie - really missed you but so glad you had a wonderful trip with your Mom to celebrate Evy's b'day. You all look so happy in the great pics - Evy is so very pretty, just like her Mommy! Sorry about the break-in - hope all is safe for your family.
Hugs - Mary.


It sounds like the perfect way to celebrate a birthday. Hmm, maybe I'll that's what I'll ask Sweet Hubby to give me for my birthday! Glad you had such a great time with your beautiful family.


Oh!! what a fun time! I love how everything is decorated for Halloween! My daughter is turning 2 this Thursday and I can't wait to take her to Disneyworld in a few years! I remember being there myself when I was around 3 years old! it made that much impact! Hope you made great memories!! xo natalea


What a great vacation...and Evy is the perfect age for Disney. Come to think of it..I'm the perfect age for Disney!

Can't wait to see the goodies you found!


Your trip sounds wonderful! Disney is such a magical place and they do everything so well--even Halloween, it looks like!

I'm so sorry to hear about the break-in. That must have been quite unsettling for you.

Can't wait to see what vintage goodies you found!

Oh, that makes me want to go to Disneyland! Oh, you are in San Jose...that's my area. I hope you enjoy your visit here!


Long time without visiting your journal- but, I scrolled down to check out your lovely antique finds!

Your trip to disney sounds fabulous! My husband would e envious. Happy Birthday to your precious baby girl!

I thought of you recently- while feeding the "little twins" at night, I have started reading Donald Bains "Murder She Wrote" books. They are a quick easy read, and have the same feel of the show. If you are interested, a good place to start this season would be with "Trick or Treachery" which is placed in Cabot Cove on Halloween (but ignore the typo of changing "Adele's" name to "Maureen").
