Disneyland Birthday Trip

M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E !!!

Yesterday was the Twins 12th Birthday. I cant believe their 12!!! We got to disneyland around 9:30 and first thing we did was head to over to Town Hall to get their money and their birthday buttons. They also gave me 9 buttons for everyone in our party to wear that said "We are celebrating a birthday"!. If your wearing a 'Happy Birthday button" with your name on it the workers at disneyland will say "Happy Birthday to you"! So all day the Twins heard "Happy Birthday", Or "Hey, are you guys twins?" as their looking back and forth between the two. That always makes me laugh. I asked Mikey at the end of the day after another worker said loudly "Happy Birthday" , are you tired of that now, and he said "No, I think its cool"!

When we first got to the park we headed to City Hall and got their Gift Cards. If you go to disneyland on your birthday you get in free or if you already have season tickets you get to chose I think 3 different choices of what you want. Cant remember what they were becauset he twins wanted the gift card. They each got a gift card loaded with $69 to spend in the park!!! They were so excited.

Our family also has season tickets so both sets of grandparents, my husbands youngest sister Lori and her family joined us. I took some picture with my cell phone but because Im sick and on meds. (this is my excuse on top of Im blonde) I forgot the camera at home and I forgot to save each picture after taking them (Im not used to taking pics. with my cellphone) so I have NO pictures! Whhaaaa. Im hoping Lori knows how to send pictures from her Cellphone to me so I'll have some pictures to post.

What the twins bought with their money. Theres a Star Wars store right at the exit of Space Mountain so they each made their own Light Saber. How cool is that!!!! They got to pick the colors, the pieces to make it with and whether to have a single or double saber. Then after riding the Tower of Terror (we got papa on this one) and after waiting 75 MINUTES IN LINE theres a store at the exit of that ride too and they each bought a T-shirt that says "I survived the Tower of Terror". They have been wanting that shirt for awhile so I was excited for them.

We had ice cream towards the end of the night. I brought candles and matches and we stick the candles in their ice cream and sang "Happy Birthday".

What a fun and exciting day!!

Now this sick mama is going back to bed. Im tired, sick and exhausted but so happy the twins had such an awesome and fun birthday spent with their family. :)

How absolutely fantastic! I don't have twins, but mine are 14 months apart. I teach them both the same curriculum, so that works out pretty well. From the sounds of it my almost 9 year old Michael would just love to hang out with your boys. . .he's a serious Stars Wars fan. Thanks so much for visiting my blog, and Happy late Birthday to your boys!!

Happy Birthday to your boys. You have your hands full with 12 yr. old twins! I teach 7th grade, so I'm spend five days a week with 12 and 13 year olds. I love that age!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you'll come back!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I always enjoy "meeting" fellow homeschoolers! My 10 year old son is a serious Star Wars fan so he would have loved making his own light saber!

Sounds like a great birthday!
