Playing Hookey/Mickey Mouse Magic Show

Okay, I'm breaking the rules and showing you their full the sunglasses count as a disguise. I took the one with the ears out of school to go to the Live MM Magic Show. (More on the school thing later). I took off the afternoon shift at school. We picked up my best friend at the hospital where she works in the ER and off we went. We were very early so we stopped at Bob Evans for a little lunch.
After ordering for just the girls, I told my friend, "Whoa, that was exhausting."

Since in the past we always get dropped off at the front door of the Palace Theater and picked up the same way, we had to guess at where to park. Cold temps, safety, and a little girl just days out of eye surgery were concerns. We parked in a garage that attached to LeVec Tower. We were able to walk through the tower then out the front door into the front door of the Palace. Wow, that was a lucky guess on where to park. We were still early so we parked ourselves in front of this wonderful window. We were three stories high across from the State building . The little girls loved it. They esp. liked playig with the dead and alive ladybugs. They wanted to take them into the theater with them.

Now, onto the theater. Millions of steps to the nose bleed section. Theater only half full.......two showings - 3:00 and 6:00 p.m........on a Friday, no wonder. They told us we could move closer but we could see really well. K. Bug got so excited when the show started that she fell out of her seat and bumped her heads. Lots of crying followed.
At intermission I let them run around the balcony and Goose fell and cried as well. I showed her a picture of her bubby (blanket) on my camera (a picture she had taken) and she hugged and kissed the camera. That was pretty funny. Then K. Bug was thirsty, so I headed down all those steps then back up them again. Geez....there were milions. Then I lost my camera. I decided, oh well, we'd find it when the lights came on (and we did) and I wasn't going to let it run the show. SO these are lousey pictures but the memories will last forever.

Did I mention that these tickets were my birthday present from my husband. My best friends's birthday was 2 days before mine, so it was for hers as well. The little girls just go to go along, hah.

My friend loves Disney. She goes every year. She has a very ill husband and very little money. She works so hard and going to Disney is their only luxury.

Now about the school thing. Our elementary principal has been to Disney at least 20 times. He knew I wanted to go to Disney World for my big birthday. When that wasn't possible, these tickets were the next best thing. When I told him I was taking K.
Bug out of school, I asked him if it was an excused absence. His reponse was,
"No, it is extra credit."

So, long story short (he he) what a great time we had. Did I mention that the Fairy Godmother was there.
Psssss. Goose is doing okay after her eye surgery. Her eyes are swollen and bloody and glassy. She said on the way to the car after the show that she was seeing double. She was so good to wear her sunglasses when we were outside. We got some strange looks from people.
My Mom is okay after her eye surgery but complaining alot.
Little Will had a bone marrow biopsy and they are still testing. Hoping that it is just a virus.

Hi Debby,
