Thanksgiving at the Beach

We are down in Panama City, Florida this week for Thanksgiving. Chet, his dad, and brother-in-law were invited to preach, teach, and lead worship the two Sunday's that sandwich Thanksgiving. We all have a condo together right on the beach, enjoying the peacefulness of the off season and just some time to kick back. Hannah is having a blast playing with her cousins!

Yesterday, we went to the Pier, a local outdoor shopping area with fun shops and entertainment. Hannah and Maddyn rode this little "choo-choo" train. Hannah loved it!
Today, we headed out to play miniature golf. Hannah has never played before and didn't quite grasp the concept. She did not want to let go of the ball, especially to put it into the hole. She still had a lot of fun though, especially looking at the animal statues.

Sweet cousins!

After 12 hours in the car...

you do whatever it takes to keep yourself entertained!
(Thankfully, the stickers were not very sticky anymore so it was easy to take them off!)

Ice Cream!

This is the dessert that our waiter brought to Hannah tonight at dinner. It is meant to be shared between several children as it is two VERY large ice cream scoops. As you can imagine, Hannah's eyes were huge when it was placed before her! She dug right in (and only had a few bites... I did need her to go to sleep tonight!)!

Character Fun

Hannah has decided that hanging out with the characters is a lot of fun! She gets so excited if we see anyone out, so much so, that Chet and I spent the day looking for more to visit. Hannah runs up to them, gives them a hug (saying "awwww" herself, like all grownups do when kids do something sweet), and will sometimes blow a kiss. Minnie is definitely her favorite. She gets so excited to see her! Here, she is playing with Minnie and Pluto. Hannah told Minnie to sit next to her and they had a little party for a few minutes!

Having a blast!

We wrapped up the Off to Neverland Summit, so now it is time for vacation! Saturday night, we headed to the Magic Kingdom for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. We had a great time! Hannah loved the fireworks and, of course, getting to ride "it's a small world." She stayed up until 11:30 that night (hyped up on sugar)! Here is Cinderella showing off her dress.
On Sunday, we headed to Disney's Hollywood Studios and had lunch with the Little Einsteins and other Playhouse Disney friends. Hannah was so excited to see June from the Little Einsteins! You can't tell, but she is holding a June doll in her hand.

Mamaw and Grandad (my parents) were able to come to spend a few days with us in Disney. We had such a great time with them and wish they could stay longer (they just left for the airport). This morning, we went to eat breakfast with Donald Duck (or just "Duck" according to Hannah) and friends in Animal Kingdom. After breakfast we headed out on the safari, where Hannah learned to say elephant and giraffe.
