'Twas the nightmare before Christmas...
When all through the house...
not a creature was stirring...
except maybe a special mouse!
I have been otherwise occupied this week
spending time finding my inner child
at The Happiest Place on Earth
Our family loves Disneyland
and it is one of our favorite vacation spots to go.
We are lucky to live close enough to drive there
and enjoy a little Disney Magic for a few days here and there.
The kids love the rides and fun and
I love the ambiance, the characters
and the whimsy of Disneyland
Of course sitting by the pool and relaxing in the spa
is pretty high on the list too!
I go on some of the crazy rides with the kids
(and some of the really crazy ones I avoid)
but in between the rides and the fun
I wander around
do some people watching
and enjoy all the Disney magic, ambiance and charm.
During the Holidays is my favorite time to visit Mickey.
The Haunted Mansion is decorated by Jack Skellington
(The Nightmare before Christmas)
It's a Small World is covered with gorgeous Christmas lights inside and out
and they both have a completely different theme for the rides.
Disneyland decks all their halls in a HUGE way for the holidays
and it is absolutely gorgeous and inspiring.
New Orleans square is my favorite little spot
I love to gather up all the beautiful decoration ideas
and inspirations for decorating.
This statue was amazing-
set up high on a balcony
it was just beautiful.
Of course you have to have some beads thrown in
for Mardi Gras too.
The blue, green and purple scheme- love.
The garland and ornaments light up in the evening.
To top it off,
The Holiday fireworks and 'snow ' falling on Main Street always inspires.
The bubbles/soap that they blow through the air
to make it look like it's snowing is definitely my kind of snow.
It's not cold and all gone in a few minutes!
Off to get a little decorating done!!!
Happy Sunday Everyone!
