Messages from Mickey {2012 Edition}

One of our favorite magical memories from last year’s trip was Messages from Mickey.  We saved a bundle of money on souvenirs as whenever we passed a store we just reminded the littles that Mickey would be picking out a treat especially for them each day! 
Like last year, the littles will receive a note and gift from the world’s most revered mouse (tucked into their stockings this time) on each morning of our stay.  Now, if I do say so myself, Mother absolutely outdid herself on these stockings!  And to think I had planned to make them on my own :-)  (Thank goodness for that miscommunication, as mine were going to be constructed of burlap and fabric glue.)

I sized the notecards at 4″x6″ so that they’ll fit right in our Disney memory books, and used the same Brady Bunch and Waltograph fonts from the signature books and matching game

I’m beyond excited to be doing this again.  Alas, it does take pre-planning, but it was SO worth it to see the magic on their faces first thing every  morning!

  1. Everything looks so cute! I wish our local Walmart had those huge Mickey lollipop's. Your little's are going to love their messages from Mickey!

  2. So much fun! I had a blast getting things together for my boys in October, and they never knew it was me! (I had the first bags delivered when we were out, so we arrived back to the room and there they were!) Still wondering who they thought was bringing them!! :) the stockings are amazing!

  3. I love this! Too cute! You are such a fun mom! Wonderful memories! I look forward to your blog everyday! I even still a few ideas! Enjoy your trip!
