Santa and his reindeer were there too. Navey and Kenna had made their own autograph books, and Navey even got Santa's autograph. Not too many kids with that one huh?
Kenna adored Pluto. She has a little pluto dog we bought last time we were there and she hasn't slept a single night without it!
Little miss Navey was so so so fun. She wanted to pose for any picture, she would try to help Kenna not get impatient waiting in line for rides, and she was just a sweetheart! Love Her!
Just in case you couldn't tell...ha ha ha, Kenna was trying to pull off poor Minnie's ears! Sometimes the excitement is just too much to contain!
In Minnie's house it is adorable. Everything has sound or lights that you can touch. The phone will ring, computer talks, table has tea with magical cookies that appear, fridge opens, and the girls loved watching Minnie's dishwasher.
My darling McKenna was a little upset when we had to leave Minnie's house. These are the most precious moments that you rarely capture! She was "angry"! Kenna tells me fairly often when she is upset "I am so angry, mom". Who knew a 2 year old could learn to express her feeling so well. :)
This was the biggest highlight of Navey's day. She kept seeing all these kids with their faces painted. She even went to the extent of asking one of the parents where she could get hers done, and got directions to give me. How can you put a price on something so glamorous? But of course there's a price, but well worth it.
Navey ran up to Mickey and gave him a big kiss on nose, everyone around got a big kick out of that one. Navey could hardly contain herself!

Halloween 2009 here they come. My oh so fabulous Navey decided to be a witch, but not just any witch, but a Glamorous Witch. We had curled hair, glitter eyeshadow, mascara(which I can't resist with those lashes) and lipstick. And with the push of a button her dress lighted green with fiber optics.
And then there is McKenna the most adorable Minnie Mouse we have ever seen since Navey was just that 3 years ago. Bless little McKenna's heart for being a good sport, well as good as a 2 year old can. The ears and bow were a little on the heavy side so keeping them on was a challenge, but we did it. She learned oh so quickly how to say "trick or treat", and she would usually follow it with a "thanks".
Navey and her most favorite Gabe, walking in their Kindergarten Halloween parade. What a fabulous tradition that has been carried out since I was in kindergarten, and I'm sure many, many years before that. Just a quick jab to all of you who are older than me. :) I can remember walking the halls of the elementary school waving at all the moms and dads, but looking so intensely for my own mom.

My sweet little Navey has been sick the past few days. She seemed to finally break her fever today, and after playing all day, as she was getting ready to climb into bed she says..."Mom I have ideas in my head again since I'm not sick anymore." This child has an imagination I can't even begin to explain, and how pitiful she could comprehend that she was too sick to have ideas in her head. Good news, she is back full force with all sorts of new ideas. :)

So our house usually consists of a lot of noise, so when it becomes quiet you have to wonder what are they getting into. This morning was one of those quiet moments with both girls upstairs and I was downstairs. I began walking upstairs and I could here the most sweet endearing voices. Navey and McKenna were reading each other stories. These precious moments are why us parents don't go crazy half the time. :)

McKenna decided to find her way to the bride and groom, and cut in on their first dance. It was so dang cute I had to snap a few pictures before I grabbed her.
This is Sean taking the picture of his girls; Hannah and Navey. Someone mentioned that we might need to break it to him that these girls are his cousins. He was such a ladies man.
Left to right....Uncle Tom and Dawn, Ronnie and Karen, Uncle Ron and Mona. These are Karen's brothers and their wives. Everyone made it to the reception except maybe one or two cousins. It was so fun to see all the family and put some faces with names that I hadn't met before.

We all went on a wagon ride out to the pumpkin patch. Both girls got to pick their own pumpkin. Funny thing they each picked one that resembled their size.
This was classic; the wicked witch off of The Wizard of Oz. Of course Kenna thought it was scarry and wouldn't even look at it. Aunt Sue and Navey were too cute acting for the camera.
Each year they seem to add something new, this year they had the tire horse merry go round, and a petting zoo.
The petting zoo was literally hands ON. They were able to walk right in and pet the animals. They had goats, baby cow, donkey, and a sheep. I was a bit nervous, this is a little out of my comfort zone to be right there in the pen with the animals. But as you can see my sweet girls are fearless.
