Lunch with our Disney Daughters

Yesterday I invited our four Disney daughters for lunch.  My husband and I enjoy chaperoning our high school choir trips to Walt Disney World.  Every three years, our choir director takes the sophomores, juniors, and seniors.  So, each student has the opportunity to go once while in high school.  The first trip was in December of 2003.  The students sang in the Candlelight Processional.  The last three trips have been in the spring and the choir performs at Downtown Disney (now Disney Springs).  We have a group of four to eight students each.  Every trip, I think I can not get a group that will be as fun as the last group, but each trip I seem to get a wonderful group of girls.   These four were my group from the last trip.  They have stayed in contact and are in college now.  While they were home for break, they wanted to get together.  
I moved the Disney Christmas tree from our bedroom to use as a centerpiece, along with some stuffed and plastic characters.  (We didn't drink tea, but the traveling teapot was part of the fun.)
Little Disney trinkets filled a take home goodie box.  I used our retro Disney cups and some Pooh plastic ware.

I wasn't ready when they arrived, so I put them to work helping fix lunch.  They were wonderful help and knew their way around a kitchen.

One of my boys asked if I made a cake.  I asked why.  He said it was one of the girl's birthday.  They failed to mention that when they selected the date.  He quickly headed to a local bakery for a cake.  Her favorite character is Sully and he found a cake in those colors.  The baker quickly added a Mike and Sully ring.
Our planned dessert was decorated Mickey cookies.  The girls decorated them anyway, and saved them for later.
We played Settlers of Catan and a lot of cards.  (These girls are avid card players.  We didn't play on the trip, but they spend the week of our county fair at our camper playing cards - Thirteen, Kemps and Up and Down the River are their favorites - and work for a large group.)  We taught them a game they hadn't played before.  We have always called it Nertzi, but most just call it Nertz.  It turned into a 3.5 hour game.
They made me a couple goodies and a new Disney ornament for our tree.  These girls are talented!  It was a fun afternoon.

Sips and Smiles,

  2. Fun, Fun, Fun! Especially loved the tinkerbell wands and that the young women jumped in and helped in the kitchen. So nice to involve the family in game time together after tea, too.
