Going to the Show

We recently took Evan and Ella Grace to "Disney Live." We decided at about 3:30 in the afternoon to go to a 6:30 show. Derek found us some really good seats even though it was last minute. Ella Grace was SOOOO excited. She insisted on wearing her Minnie dress (Halloween costume). She looked really cute! Things like this can be a bit overwhelming, so we weren't really sure how Evan would like it. Well, he had THE best time. He watched the show intently, clapping and laughing. It made mine and Derek's year to see him enjoy it so much!

I told EG I wanted to take her picture, and this is the pose she struck!

Waiting for the show to begin.

Calling "Mickey"

Evan is holding the $20 souvenir we bought. $20!!! Are you serious?

Watching intently.

This is the way Ella Grace stands. I just love it. She folds her little hands and holds them in front of her. So sweet.

This is what happened when it was over and time to go home. She was NOT happy at all. She kept saying, "I want to do it again!" She cried the entire way home.

The next day, Ella Grace and I joined my sisters and nephew and niece at the Arkansas Arts Center to see "Mr. Popper's Penguins." It was such a cute play. Ella Grace loved it and watched the entire thing. I was pretty impressed that it kept her attention (for a two-year-old). She loved watching the kids and of course the penguins (kids in penguin costumes). =) I knew Evan would not enjoy this at all, so he and Derek had a fun boys day together.

My nephew, Stone (love the face), my niece, Sarah, and me and EG after the show.

Later that night, I met my friend, Toni, for a women's event at my church. It was such a wonderful event. Priscilla Shirer was our speaker, and she is AMAZING. The theme was "Dwelling in the Land of Possibility." It was all about how God is able to do above and beyond!!! It was such a wonderful time of praise music and worship. I really needed it! If you ever get a chance to hear Priscilla, go!!!

I am so glad that you guys were able to do something together as a family and everyone got to enjoy it! EG looked so cute in her Halloween costume, but when I scrolled down and saw how the happy face turned into a sad face, I literally said, "Oh no!!" out loud. Yes...talking to my computer {friends} again! Ha!!

It looks like you had a great time! EG's face is priceless in her outfit and in the car going home. She looked so thrilled to be going and then so sad to have to leave.

My beautiful LAH ~I absolutely LOVE the first pic of EG. She looks like such a lady. However, the one of her crying cracks me up. That is one of those moments you think to yourself, "my child is being such a two year old right now :)!"

So proud of EVAN!!!
