December 7th the Tuttle's went on an amazing race! We went to the mall and ran around finding clues and getting items! We had no idea what the winning team would get, but knowing Carol it was going to be something GREAT!! Mark and I returned 2nd!!! Ah nuts!!! So we stand before Carol and Jon (a.k.a Phil from Amazing Race) She said, "Mark and Jaleah you are team number 2. For your prize you get this sack of goodies, and your prize for being 2nd is written on the paper inside. Mark and I opened the sack and read on the paper. "Since moms birthday is the day after christmas and she recieves one free day at the disneyland resort,she is taking the whole family on a three day paid vacation to Disneyland!! WOOO HOO!!! And boy was it a blast!
We arrived Christmas night and enjoyed jumping on our beds and going crazy!
This was my third time this year going to Disneyland, and it was still just as great!!!
Disney had HUGE christmas trees all over the park! It was so festive and awesome!
The whole families FAVORITE ride was Toy Story!! We went on it at least 8 times!! It's 3D and you have 8 different screens to raise your score by hitting targets! We were so competitive, it was SO fun!
We had a 3-day park hopper pass so everyday we went to both parks. Such a blast!
In California adventure they have a Disney studios where they show you how they make their movies, and then you can be part of one. In one of the sections you go into the Beasts chamber, and it tells you what disney character you would be. Dot, from a bugs life was mine, and Mark's said his was Simba! Ha funny!
You always have to get the mickey pictures!
Here are two bugs!! Found them crawling around, "it's a bugs life" theater!
Whoa two more!!
It was so cool to be there during christmas, it wasn't too busy until the last day, and we'd already done everything anyways so it was ok!
The castle all lit up!
It's a small world all lit up!
K, this picture was taken in Space mountain, the one the park snaps. And it so happens that right when the picture was snapped it I get hit in the face with a huge luggy! Or some kind of water!! Look at how disgusted I am! Ha! It was horrible! I am so glad it got on camera! And so cute, Mark and I are holding hands!
The haunted mansion was all decked out in the nightmare before christmas stuff. It was so cool!
This is my most favorite picture!!! You can see how freaking scared Mark and I are!! This is the mickey roller coaster in California Adventure!! (Actually, we knew where the camera was going to be, so right before it, I screamed to Mark to make the most scared face ever! Boy did it turn out!!! ahahah)
This one is cool cause we got the whole family in a picture! This is on the tower of terror. Mario and Chris tried pulling my hood over my head for it! No such luck boys!! Everyones face crack me up!!
Now this picture is just sweet!
No!! I'm not a fish! Don't haul me away!
Matterhorn! Finally this day was warmer! Short sleeves!
The new movie "The Princess and the Frog" had come out right before this, so it was so cool to see the production of it in New Orleans square!
Another favorite ride was Buzz lightyear! We want on this at least 4 times! There's something about competition that we thrive on!
Such a great trip! Thank you momma Tuttle!! Thank you Tuttle kids and momma Tuttle for being so Stinkin fun!! And thank you Mark for bringing you inner kid! We had so much stinkin FUN!!!!
