An Extravagance

Since I moved across the country, I have been jealous of my family on several occasions when they went to Disney on Ice.  Then I heard about a month ago that it was coming to town, Disney on Ice: Treasure Trove.  And I thought, I have a little girl now, I can go too.  But when we looked at the price of tickets we decided it was better to wait until another year.

Until I woke up this morning.  The morning of said Disney on Ice expensive entertainment.  And I decided I just needed to go.  So we did.  All in a sort of rush, we purchased tickets online, packed up some coats for the forecasted snow, and off we went.  So worth it!  I'm sure I enjoyed it the most of the 3 of us, but Morgan definitely had her share of fun as soon as she got over being scared and crying, which was pretty fast.  I especially thought the songs from the Lion King were beautiful, the skaters all dressed as animals.  Unfortunately with all of the lighting effects I couldn't get any good pictures of the show, but here are a few of Morgan and I enjoying ourselves.

There was way too much to see for Morgan to actually look at the camera!

Some firsts

A couple of days after Morgan's first birthday, she got her first haircut.  Mommy just couldn't handle the baby mullet any longer.

 They have the kids sit in little cars with steering wheels and everything.  But Morgan was too interested in what was going on to really care.
 I don't know how they cut it straight as many times as she turned her head!

 There was another kid screaming and trying to jump out of his seat, made it a little unsettling for Morgan.  Sad face!
First haircut accomplished!

This Halloween was not Morgan's first, but last year she was a little too new to enjoy the festivities, so this was Morgan's first Halloween to dress up and trick-or-treat.  We enjoyed the day by watching the Halloween parade at school (that many kids was a little overwhelming for her).  I love seeing all the costumes and how creative people are.  My creativity this year only went so far as buying a costume at Costco.  But I think it is so cute!  Morgan is my little ladybug, so her costume was obvious!

 Cutest ladybug ever, in my humble opinion

 First time trick-or-treating
