Disney on Ice

What a way to start a week!

Monday morning, after taking Grandpa Barker to the airport to catch a flight back home, Mama and Papa took me out for a special treat. I went to see Disney on Ice at the Dunk! It was awesome. I got to see my friend Brianna and everyone from Disney too! Take a look -

"I'm so excited for the show!"


OMG, it's Minnie on the ice!

STITCH rockin' da house!

Yeah for all my friends!

Boy, do I need a nap now!

That was soooooo much fun! I can't wait to go back again soon.

Last day with Grandpa Barker

Today was the last full day of Grandpa Barker's visit to Rhode Island. We went out to lunch with Mama and Grandma to Bugaboo Creek. I really liked the moose, who talked to us. So, I kept asking for "more moose!"

Here's a picture of me with Grandma and Grandpa.

Oh yeah, did I mention that Mama and Papa are awesome! They put together my new Barbie Big Wheel that I got from Auntie Trudy and Uncle Bob for Christmas.

Don't I look cool!

After my day out, I got to go visit Grandpa Crowe for a birthday party for him, Auntie Debbie and Uncle Joe too! The ice cream cake was very tasty :)

Monday, I'm going to see Disney on Ice. I'll give you a full report, plus more of my top 10's to come!

Abbie's Top 10 List Begins - Top 10 Music of 2008

Since everywhere you look this week, you will see Top 10, Top 25, and Top 100 list, I have decided that I will make my own top lists for the year 2008. So, starting today through New Year's Day, there will be a new Abbie’s Top List each day.

The first list I will share is my Top 10 Hits of 2008. These songs may be from this year – but they also may be a little bit older – since most all music is new to me (I am only 19 months). If you were one of the lucky few – you already own a limited edition CD of Abbie’s Top 10 Hits. If you were not a chosen one – feel free to contact Mama or Papa for limited arrangements.

Abbie’s Top 10 of 2008

1. Love Song by Sara Bareilles
2. Country Man by Luke Bryan
3. No Air by Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown
4. Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It – Darius Rucker
5. I’m Yours by Jason Mraz
6. Home by Blake Shelton
7. So What by P!nk
8. Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven by Kenny Chesney
9. Should’ve Said No by Taylor Swift
10. Just a Girl by No Doubt

Coming tomorrow… Abbie’s Top 10 Reads for 2008.

Hugs and kisses,
Abbie :)

More Christmas photos

After a very busy Christmas (and a nice early evening nap with Mama and Papa), it's time to show you a few more pictures from our holiday fun. We spent the afternoon at Nana and Grandpa's house to see the rest of the family. Dinner was some yummy ham, taters and corn. Plus, Papa gave me some tasty trifle too!

"I want to bang on my drum all day!"

Our cute Ohana :)

Playing with Lady Mariah.

Before we left, Papa, Uncle Joe and Uncle Andy set up the W!! for Brooklyn. I hope I get to play it soon!!!

Hugs and kisses,
Abbie :)
