Make-A-Wish Reveal

Many know that Alexa was granted approval for a wish from the wonderful people at Make-A-Wish Foundation.  This is an amazing charity that grants a wish to children with serious, life long and often life threatening medical conditions.

A couple weeks ago her wish grantors came to our house to get to know Alexa.  I have to say, our wish grantors are awesome.  They brought her a Barbie, some movies and a board game. 

Alexa's Make-A-Wish Barbie

But the best part of their visit was that they stayed getting to know her and playing with her for about 3 hours!   They played Barbies, had a picnic and a tea party, played dress up, and coloured some pictures.  They really wanted to find out what she liked, what her favourite things were, what her greatest wish would be.

At the end of the night, Alexa had the following three wishes:

1. To have ice cream with Elsa in DisneyWorld
2. To swim with the turtles in the Galapagos Islands
3. To have ice cream with Elsa on a Disney Cruise

All pretty awesome wishes if you ask me!

I got the call last week that one of the wishes was approved and tonight was the big reveal:

(fast forward to 1:20 mark for the big surprise)

So there you have it! Looks like in the next couple of months, we will be going to Disney World!!!
Our Make-A-Wish grantors came in with a huge box from Princess Elsa! 


Elsa bought gave Alexa two matching bracelets.  As the note states, we are to bring them to Disney World with us so that Alexa can give back one of the friendship bracelets to Elsa.

Of course, Elsa was super generous and gave Alexa tons of other presents:

And for our final surprise we were added to the pin trading club:

And we have our first Disney mission:  
To build a pin necklace full of only Frozen themed pins!
