Preparing to surprise Beth on Christmas

We are finally letting Beth know on Christmas Day that we are taking her back to WDW, Orlando in September for a visit. Although she is a annual passholder to Disneyland Paris and goes a couple times a year she hasn't been to Orlando since she was 2. She often says when I am 6, 7 or 8 will you take me back to Walt Disney World (which by the way according to her is in Orlando but that isn't in America apparently LOL). So we are doing just that - she will be 6 when we go. Alan says its too far away but it will be 6 weeks after her birthday so I am sure she will understand.

I wondered and wondered how to do it - we needed something to wrap - something visable and finally it clicked - heck I don't have an artist for a daughter for nothing!

So Sassy took 2 hours out of her Sunday to paint a canvas for me - and I think you might agree with me (depending on the quality of the photo) its not so bad at all!!!!

Love that painting.

I think telling her about it early is the right thing to do. She will look forward to it and can make a countdown calendar - maybe weeks to start with and then days as it gets nearer. My girls loved knowing in advance and discussing what they wanted to see, where they wanted to go ... A last minute surprise isn't as much fun I don't think!

Wow! Sassy did a great job! And I am sure Beth will love the anticipation leading up to her trip to WDW no matter WHERE it's located. LOL!

Wish that photo was bigger! :O(
