Living on Hope, Love and Happiness

My names Kristie. I'm 21 :) I have a beautiful almost 4 year old daughter named Allyson Hope. My whole world revolves around her. She's my miracle and has fought hard to still be here today. She has short gut syndrome but you'd never know it if you saw her without her backpack. I have an amazing husband who I've been with for five years(married for 2) <3

Most of the photos I post do NOT belong to me unless otherwise stated. I find mostly everything in random places online.

Meeting Characters can make your day and  you can personalize your meeting with a character.
Characters are always ready to pose for photos and sign autographs. Try asking them a few things and you could get a really great and memorable experience.
  Here are some ideas of what to say or ask the princesses:  

Meeting Ariel

- Bring along a dinglehopper, see how she reacts.

- Ask about how is Eric doing?

- Talk about all the human treasures she has found.

- If you meet her in mermaid form, ask her if she misses her human legs. 

- Ask about Sebastian, Flounder or Scuttle.  PHOTO POSE IDEA: For a cute picture, ask her to make a fishy face

Meeting Aurora

- Ask about her favorite color, see if she would rather be wearing a pink or blue dress. This is even better if you are wearing something pink or blue!

- Ask what it was like to be asleep for so long.

- Ask if she likes to takes naps

- Ask about Flora, Fauna and Merryweather, and what they are up to

- Ask her about Prince Philip

PHOTO POSE IDEA: For a cute picture, ask her to do a sleeping pose!
