Princess 101

Let's talk princesses people.

For if there was a princess to be met while we were at Disney, Alexandra K. Schore met her.

We came. We met. We conquered.

Here we have Tiana and Naveen, Disney's newest royalty:

Jasmine and Aladdin:

Aurora/Sleeping Beauty/Briar Rose.
You know you're hot stuff when you have three names.

Alex's favorite-- Snow White.
We tried so hard to see her on the day Alex wore her Snow White dress, but we weren't able to.

Ariel and Eric:
Belle pointing herself out on Alex's shirt:

And, technically fitting into the "fairy" category, are Tinkerbelle and Rosetta.

Phew. That's a lot of princesses.
And doesn't even begin to cover the "furry friends" category.
We'll hit that soon.

Alex had colored pictures for the princesses, and was excited to give them away. She also had questions prepared for each of them, but got a little shy when it came time to ask them.

So she made Daddy do it.

I loved watching my tough fighter pilot asking Snow White who her favorite dwarf is, and asking Jasmine about her wedding to Aladdin.

Then again, we're talking about the same guy who took his Buzz Lightyear gaming very seriously:

See that little forehead peeking over in the other seat?
That's my son.

Speaking of Jasmine (weren't we?)...is it inappropriate to say that my daughter was motorboatin' here?

If so, then let's pretend I didn't say it.

And where is Derek in all of these photos, you may ask?

Cowering in fear.
In his world, there is nothing more intimidating than a dressed up lady or a huge head with non-moving eyes.

On second thought, I think I'm with you son.

Here he is avoiding eye contact with Goofy:

And the Army Man from Toy Story:

And Minnie Mouse, who he knows is approaching on the parade float.

Look, we got him in a picture looking....distressed... with Aladdin.

We did manage to get him to willingly stand next to Lightning McQueen and 'Mater, seeing as how they are just cars.

But then 'Mater revved his engine and Derek was outta there.

My apologies for Disney overload. I've been trying to break it into manageable chunks, but we still have some ground to cover.

THIS JUST IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After 13 weeks and 4 days (but who's counting, right?) of living in a bedroom without furniture, our bedroom set is in!
And should be delivered within 2 weeks!

Amen and hallelujah.
I was getting a little tired of having my clothes scattered in piles all across the bedroom floor.
In my excitement, I consolidated the piles and cleared the space necessary to allow the furniture to be brought in.

Later, when Alex went into the bedroom, she came out and asked if I got new carpet.

I think it was getting a little ugly in there.

But I'm super excited that we'll finally be able to get completely settled, and I'll be sure to take pictures when our illusive furniture arrives.

I love the pictures...I'm a fan of the princesses. And where's the fun in taking 1000 pictures at Disney if you can't show them to somebody?

I'm going to go ahead and agree with Derek on being fearful of at least the "prince" part of the whole be-costumed thing. Those dudes look a little creepy to me. Especially the first one. He has a little 'stache going.
