"Mommy, can I wear my princess outfit? Please?"

On day two of the cruise, Sabrina cleverly lured Dave into the gift shop, where he bought her a $65 Aurora princess outfit (did you know that was Sleeping Beauty's name?) and a $15 plastic crown. "Can I just call you 'Suck-errr' from now on?" I asked Dave when I found out.

But that outfit paid for itself. Because Sabrina basically wore it every second possible, except when she went swimming. I could have saved myself a lot of packing, if only I'd known. She wore it...


...to breakfast...


...to the kids club...


...to play shuffleboard...


...to bed, for a nap...


...to dinner...


...to a girls' night out...


...to the arcade...

...and to all of her important meetings, like these.

















Astoundingly, she did not ask to wear it to preschool when she got home. Though I would have let her. That princess outfit has cast a spell over me.

  5. What a swell costume! Sabrina wears it WELL, too! She was born to be a princess!

    Now, if I could just convince my boys that the dollar fifteen hot pink cheapo foam crowns (don't ask, they just wanted them, they like bright colors, they were wailing in the aisle, and I caved) that I got them at WALMART just aren't the thing to wear while pulling each other around the neighborhood in their little wagon!

  7. Love it! I have an awesome pic of Emily when she was 4 at Disney. She had fallen asleep with her Minnie Mouse doll she just had to have. Love those moments!!

    Considering how much pleasure and use she has already gotten from the dress and crown I would say it was a good investment and a unique souvenir of the trip.
    Love the pictures of Sabrina and Max at Disney World. These two are so cute and photogenic. It sounds like it would be too much stimulation for Max, but Sabrina could do modeling (as if you need another activity to fit into your already overtaxed daily schedule.)
    Your kids are precious!

  10. I would love to read these comments to Sabrina, but then she would get a swelled head and her tiara would no longer fit.

    Seriously, I can't wait till she's older and I'll be able to go back and show her all this blog love.

    And, Barbara, WHAT a great idea. I would love nothing more to get Sabrina and Max into modeling, and then quit my job and live off their good looks!!!! :)

  11. I have always said she looks like Dave in a pink dress (I think I have actually said this since the girl was born;))But I have to say Ellen...I am starting to see you poke out a bit! The pic of her at dinner with the crayons...that is YOU!

    Great pics...and let Dave know that he isn't alone in the SSSUUUCCCKKKEEERRR department...I know a certain man that is already planning his daughters trips to visit princesses...If Victoria could talk, her Daddy would give her anything she wanted...even the keys to his mustang!
