We ARE taking Harper to Disney World! And we're doing it in about two weeks! And I'm practically going crazy with excitement!

When she opens her gift from Matt and I on Saturday (during our family party) she'll find this:

You should be able to click to enlarge it, but if not, it says, "This certificate is good for one trip to Disney World with Mom and Dad." It also says, "Mickey Mouse is so excited to meet you!"

The box also contains a paper chain of how many days until we go, a Disney autograph book, and a Minnie Mouse Ears headband.

We've been mentally planning this since Matt and I went just over two years ago - all we could talk about most of the time was how much Harper was going to love the place. We made our hotel reservation about a year ago. And now the trip is almost here!

Nice birthday gift, huh?

Hey Kels,

So much for keeping secrets!! You have always had a hard time with that. I hope Harper is half as excited as you are.



Lil Mouse said...

Wow. That's terribly exciting. She'll be cozying up to princesses in no time!

I knew about the surprise, but reading about it makes me SO EXCITED! She will always remember opening that box.

Just thinking about it makes me feel like a little kid.

Emily said...

Oh, WOW! I never would've thought of that, but it is PERFECT! So are you leaving Michael at home? That sounds like an incredible trip.

Mommy Daisy said...

Wow! That's awesome! She'll be thrilled. Make sure you get her reaction on film. I'm sure it will be good.

That is soooo much fun! I can't wait to hear about her experience at Disney World. I cannot wait to take Grady someday--maybe we'll be able to go in 2-3 years?

I'm so jealous! I can't wait to take our kids to Disneyworld. But everyone keeps telling me "they have to be at least five to really enjoy and remember it!" They must've told you the same thing, huh?
Plus! Disneyworld at CHRISTMAS! How awesome is that going to be?! I'm so excited for you guys!

I have to agree with your Dad, in that I think you might be JUST as excited (or maybe even a tiny bit more so??) than Harper. Which is AWESOME, that you are so thrilled to share this with her. You three will have a wonderful time.

And I totally love the notecard and chain link -- they are classic Kelsey!!

So cool! She will love it! And the presentation of the trip is awesome. Have a great time! Is Michael getting some special spoiling time with the grandparents?

LOVE the paper chain! What an excellent idea! Can I go too?

What a great idea, and I LOVE having the paper chain in the box and the headband!
