The Schwartz's vs Disney on Ice 2012

We have really awesome friends.  I know I've mentioned that before.  But somehow our awesome friends have once again made it so Sarah could have a wonderful and magical time at Disney on Ice.  Annie sent me a message a few weeks ago and told me she might be able to get her hands on a couple of extra tickets and asked if Sarah and I would like to go.  "Heck yeah!" Was all I replied.  And as per our tradition we decided to make the girls matching outfits for the show.  (Insert eye roll here Annie....)
Annie made the adorable skirts for all the girls and had her neighbor make the cute shirts.  My only contribution was the dollar store tiaras.  

Sarah was very excited to go to the "Princess Show" with her best friend Jessie.  But getting them to the suite was like herding cats.  They were all so excited they were going every which way and Sarah kept running the wrong direction like she knew where she was going.
 But as soon as we got into the box they were just mesmerized (except for a few much needed dance breaks.)
 We decided at intermission, before we broke out the snacks I may or may not have smuggled in under my shirt in waist band of my pants, to try to get a group picture.

Trying to get 3 little girls all looking at the camera and smiling at the same time is pretty much impossible.

 So this is the best we could do.

I'm sure I should have taken pictures of the show but I just didn't think about it.  It was a great show!  They did condensed version of the Princess and the Frog, Cinderella, and Tangled.  The costumes were great and the Tangled bit was the best.  They did some pretty cool Cirq-de-soli stuff during the Tangled part.  They had some fabric from the ceiling to represent hair and Flynn and Rapunzel "flew" around on it.  I was impressed.  I just kept thinking, 1) I don't have the strength to do that and 2) what if my hands were sweaty.  They weren't harnessed in or anything.  I really wouldn't be able to do that!

For the ride home Annie worked her car seat magic and somehow managed to fit 3 car seats in the back of the van.  We thought it might make the ride home a little quieter.  We were wrong.  But the girls really enjoyed riding beside each other.
