A Jolly Holiday

It wasn’t just my friend’s birthday over the weekend, but Dick Van Dyke’s as well! Everyone’s favorite  chimney sweep turned 90, and he celebrated at the Happiest Place on Earth. He performed live in New Orleans Square, singing songs from Mary Poppins, which was quite the treat! Later he had his own small parade down Main Street USA before arriving at Main Street Station where Guests sang “Happy Birthday”. Guests were encouraged to dress up at chimney sweeps, but I went in a different direction, being inspired by the “Jolly Holiday” sequence of Mary Poppins.

It’s been quite the week between last weekend and this weekend. Patrick and I celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary by spending the night at the Disneyland Hotel and dining at Steakhouse 55, then Thursday we spent the entire day at the El Capitan for their Star Wars marathon, leading up to the showing of The Force Awakens (when I say “entire day” I mean it! Arriving at 10 pm Wednesday night, and leaving at just before 10 Thursday night!), and then just last night we went to Charles Phoenix‘s Retro Holiday Slide Show at Smoke Tree Ranch. Sadly I don’t have any real photos to share with all of you from the events, but it puts into perspective just how busy we have been!

I hope your holiday season is going well! I’ve been lagging in my Christmas card writing this year due to all that we have been doing, and I am looking forward to what I hope to be a relaxing Christmas week ahead, as we don’t have much going on that week. At least, so far!

  1. That is off-the-charts cool! I adore Mr. Van Dyke and literally squealed aloud when I saw him here in your photos. What an incredible experience to get to see him perform, at the very venerable age of 90, in person.
