The following morning, Aunt Paula joined us for soccer practice....

We ate a quick lunch and made our way downtown to the circus....

We've found a few of these "Indy" signs around town lately.  The girls wanted to pose as the letter "I".

Before the show we went down on the floor.

Some of us had more trouble than others keeping our noses on....

And then we went to dinner afterwards...

I love this picture of Addison.  A real true genuine smile!

Frost Fest 2015...

The weekend of December 4th, 2015 Terry had to take off to Chicago unexpectedly due to a death in the family.  My sister Paula decided to come spend the weekend with us.  On Friday evening we attended the Fishers Frost Fest. 

Checked out a few ice sculptures.

Met Donner and Sven...

And looked at some lights.....

Decorating the tree....

We put our tree up on November 24th.  The girls we so excited to decorate it with all the Disney ornaments we purchase on our trip.

Another lost tooth....

On Wednesday, November 30th Addison lost another tooth.  I'm losing count now!

School Luau...

Catching up once again....

On November 14th the girls school had a luau fundraiser.  The girls had a great time and they each won a silent auction item.  They wanted to bid to have breakfast with their teachers.  Here are a few photos:

The thought getting their hair chalked was pretty cool!!

Disney 2015: Day Seven

Our final day was spent traveling home.  We were all sad to leave but definitely ready to sleep in our own beds.

We arrived at the airport fairly early so we had lots of time to explore, shop, eat lunch and goof around.

The girls thought it was neat that there was a fountain in the airport.

We were all exhausted.  Alexis took a brief nap and Addison and I enjoyed the sunset.

We were promptly greeted by our limo driver and he took us right home.  The girls immediately went straight upstairs to bed since they had school the next day.

And here are the final products of their Mickey tie die.

Disney 2015: Day Six...

Day Six was to be our pool/lounge day. 

I realized this morning that I hadn't taken any photos of our room.  The girls were willing to oblige for a posed picture in front of our door.  Room 4600.

In the lobby of our hotel was Cape Mickey's.  We ate breakfast here this morning.  The girls loved the Mickey shaped waffles.

They were also in love with the fact that the characters were dressed in their bathing suits. 

They loved that Goofy was wearing flippers.

They were pretty upset that Mickey wasn't there.  We were told he was too busy in the kitchen making waffles??  We never really did get a decent explanation as to why he wasn't there.

After breakfast we changed into our bathing suits and we spent the afternoon hanging out by the pool.

A quick snack. 

It was a gorgeous day.

The girls had also requested some ice cream.  Since we had more of a brunch than breakfast we had a few snacks for lunch before an early dinner on the boardwalk.

We also were able to partake in a few pool side activities at our resort.  The girls were able to play some pool games and make Mickey Mouse Tie dye shirts.  (stay tuned for photos)

We took the boat over to the boardwalk for dinner at an Italian restaurant that I for the life of me can't remember the name of.  :-)  It was really excellent food.

After dinner we walked around the boardwalk, did some shopping and watched a few street performers.   Because of the time change that weekend, it got dark a whole lot earlier. 

We took the boat back to our hotel to call it an early evening.
