If you haven't heard already... MN got hit hard with a blizzard. Snow falls were somewhere between 15-20 inches. Yes. It was wild! And driving in it... a whole 'nother story :-)

We didn't let the snow hold us back... we were determined people. Disney on Ice was at stake. We ventured out and were just fine!

We had two little cute nieces that were SO excited too! I loved Aimee's Minnie Ears :-)

These two girls are my favorite nieces! They are the sweetest. We had a lot of fun watching all the cute characters skate around on ice. Almost made me want to be a figure skater ;)

The show was AWESOME! I know Aimee & Livi enjoyed it ... but so did I! It brought back childhood Disney memories :-)

The Mickey Mouse characters went on an adventure meeting The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Lilo & Stitch and Peter Pan. The most funny part was when Aimee had no idea who Lilo and Stich were. I couldn't blame her... ha! That one never really made it big?

The Little Mermaid was Aimee Marie's favorite part. Ariel... Oh... "I wanna be where the people are...."

Joshy is going to make a GREAT daddy someday! He is the sweetest Uncle!

The whole crew on the ice for the last time. Hard to get a good photo but SO many cute characters!

Livi decided she was sleepy... She is too cute to not post this photo!

Joshy rockin the flounder hat with Minnie Mouse :-)

Andd... finished the outing with Cosetta's for dinner. Delish! Can't go wrong with Italian food and little girls :-)

We also had the treat of keeping the girls over for a slumber party! It was really fun! I love these cuties!

Our Sunday turned out differently than we expected, but it was lovely. The MN Metrodome where the Vikings play COLLAPSED. Yes. It ripped and water flooded it. There are a lot of articles about it but especially this video is CRAZY!

No Vikings game for this crew. Sad bummer!! We will be watching it on the screen tomorrow because it got moved to Detroit. WILD!

Happy NEW week! :-) Enjoy!

RIA! I was thinking about you when I heard the news on the dome...what a bummer! At least you had a wonderful time at Disney on ice with your sweet nieces!

Appleshoe said...

Where to start?! First, you are both awesome and crazy for driving in that! Second, it is your mission to introduce your nieces to Lilo in Stitch, yep, a mission. It’s my favorite! Third, Please send some prayers skyward for me please. Rough Dr. Appointment today at 1:40. Take care.
