Disneyland in the fall!!!!

Cassie and I made a last minute decision to do Disneyland on Sunday late morning. We played hookie from church- sorry- but we had a great time hanging out at the beautiful fall decor laden Disneyland!!!!

The Traditional picture in front of the big pumpkin.

It is a huge massive pumpkin they put up every year.

This picture is from last year almost to the day when we were at Disneyland. Look how young all the kids were. We didn't do the traditional pumpkin pic but we are standing in front of the huge pumpkin at the entrance.

Back to this year:

Mia playing at her favorite place by the big pumpkin. Disneyland is sooooo decorated for the fall and it is absolutely beautiful and so festive-- we love it there in the fall!!

Mia began not wanting pictures taken and would not comply with the kid picture.

Then it melted down into this-- just precious-- right???

She got up off the ground flopping like a fish and decided she would walk down Main Street with Ethan.

The older kids and I trying to entertain ourselves in line for Indiana Jones ride.

Notice the skulls in the background. The kids are convinced they are human-- just really little humans-- haha!!

The older kids on splash Mountain.

After splash mountain-- not sure this was a picture taking place but here they are.

Yesterday-- the day we were there- Miley Cirus was having a huge Birthday Party-- you may have seen it on the news. She had a bunch of stars and kids could buy tickets to the tune of $250 each to come into a private event in the park from 6 to 11pm. The park closed to all us commoners at 5pm but that was fine with us although the kids soooo wanted to see Miley and the Jonus Brothers. Actually when we were about to be forced to leave (we hung around a bit long with anticipation of star gazing) Billy Rae Cirus took the stage and sang "Real Gone" to all us who were left in the park. It was totally cool to see him perform-- even though we were being forced to leave :)

We were not sure who these guys were but they looked important so we took a picture of them.

What cute kids.

Love this picture-- she looks so cute with all the fall floral behind her.

So pretty and looking soooo old!!

Blurry but cute!

Eating their treats before we leave.

We had a blast!!


  1. I should have figured that you were having all the fun...
    LOVE the pictures..
    I sooo want to go to Disneyland..
    Love ya girly..
    Amazing how much the kids have changed in a year..

  2. I love D-Land in the Fall. I can't wait to go.

  3. I recognize the cute clothes Mia has on, I bought the same outfit for Gracie last year but she outgrown it. :( I see you made it to Disney! I'm dying to go to see all the Halloween decorations. Do you want to go this Friday? Email me and let me know.


  4. I cant wait to meet you there and
    hopefully next month. I grew up
    going to Disneyland during the
    holidays. These pics brought
    me back to a wonderful time in
    my childhood. All the pics of
    you and the kids were amazing!!!

    Where did you get Mia's shoes?

    Lots of Hugs,


  5. I love all the pics, and I really love the big Mickey pumpkin!! That is adorable. Bryce is such an Indiana Jones fan, I bet he would love the ride. Everytime you post pics, it makes me want to come!!

  6. Oh my gosh, on the "these people look important" picture, the guy holding the guitar IS ONE OF THE JONAS BROTHERS! How cool. I can't remember his name, but I can't wait to show my girls. They are all in LOVE with them. They are going to flip that you caught a glimpse. Disneyland looks like a ball. Ya'll are so lucky to get to go so frequently. Have a great week.

  7. I LOVE these pics!!! What a fun day you all had! Mal has the same shirt as Miss Mia. I love that "fallish". I am glad you all had such a great time at Disneyland. I love the big Mickey Mouse pumpkin. That is cool!
    Take care, my friend!

  8. You think Mia looks "old" - I thought, WOW! She hasn't changed that much since last year!! She is still a peanut :)

  9. Looks like y'all ad a GREAT day! Love lil Miss Mia in that reddish color!

  10. How fun! We were there 2 years ago almost to the day. It was so much fun seeing Disney Land all decorated in Halloween decor.

    I'm so glad you all had a blast!

    Your post is getting me excited for our trip to Disney World next month!

  11. Hey Christy!

    Loved all the pix! You crack me up getting the spicy girl meltdown caught on film! :0)

    I have never seen DL decorated for fall. We are going to WDW the week before Christmas, and I CAN'T wait to see it decorated for Christmas! It will take us about 19 hours to drive to FL so not too many trips there for us. It must be great to live so close to such a fun place!

    Have a great day,
