Jessica's Disney Princess on Ice Adventure

*This post was originally published on 1-12-2008 which was almost 3 years before Miss Jess passed away.  I found a video that I wanted to add to this post so it's there now.  I hope you enjoy these photos and memories.  They sure bring me comfort and joy.*
Here are some pictures of Jessica's adventure to "Disney's Princess On Ice" show that we went to in October. (I know, I'm extremely behind on posting pictures so in the next few weeks I'm going to be my attempt to catch up and post more photos!)

Our local Tu Nidito support group and the ice show planned a little surprise for the girls to meet Belle and Cinderella at the Z-mansion before the show. They also gave us 4 free tickets to see the show so Karl and Austin went with Jess and me.

(As always, click on any photo to see a larger image.)

Here is Princess Jess all dressed up and ready to go to meet the Disney princesses!

Jess and Mom


Jessica made necklaces for the princesses and I helped her wrap them up.  Here's a little video of her giving the princesses their gifts.  The princesses were very surprised that someone was so thoughtful to make and give them gifts.


Princess Jess with Cinderella and Belle


Cinderella and Belle wrote little thank you notes to Jessica which really made Jessica's day.

Here are the autographs. One of the assistants to the Disney princesses took Jessica's notebook to get the autographs. There were too many girls and not enough time for they all to get autographs.... so the assistant sneaked the notebook to the princesses after they left the courtyard. Wasn't that nice?!

Now it's time for the show! These are some photos that I took with my own camera. Since Jessica is in a wheelchair, we were at the very top of the seating area. Fortunately we were right in the center so we still had a great view. My camera also has a zoom function so I was able to get a bunch of great photos of the show. I'm only putting up a fraction of those photos here. [I can hear you all sighing with relief!]


Aladdin and Jasmine

Wow... look at them skate!


This is Ariel's story now. She is in the center of the photo. Click on it to enlarge and see if you can find her.


Ariel and Flounder


Intermission fun with Austin and Jess: Daddy bought Princess Jess the Ariel wand. Yes, it lights up and even sings too!


Cinderella all ready to go to the ball


Prince Charming asks for this dance


Getting ready for a big jump - too bad I missed the jump! LOL


This time Tinkerbell is in the ball and it shoots out sparklers!


The finale: All the princes and princesses skate beautifully!


I am so glad that we had the opportunity to go to this show. Jessica really enjoyed it and still talks about it. It was nice that Austin wanted to go to spend time with his sister. Justen and Brandon didn't really care to go but we would have had to purchase their tickets (which we would have done) but they wouldn't have been able to sit with us so they stayed at home. I am so psyched that I got so many great pictures! I had better work on scrapbooking them!

I zoomed over here from the CMCSharelist post. I am encouraged by your request for prayer when you asked "if it be God'a will." Praying in those words will always be the prayer that never fails.
Jess is added to my prayer notebook, dear (unknown) friend.

Hello Nancy,

I loved the pictures. I wonder, was this when my Corinne went and sat by Jessica? It's so hard to remember much from our past. I lost all of our pictures, so I don't have any of this show. Jessica looks so happy, I remember how Corinne felt, esp. getting into that Limo. and hair done, what a fairytale for those two.
I'd love to see a picture of Corinne and Jessica if you have any. Corinne is slowly weakening. It's hard to keep a smile. She is in a home now, but I can only pray she can come home soon, only GOD can get her there.
I'm so sorry we lost touch, my world was like "nothing" in this world.
I know inside how you have felt,or much of it. I feel it now for my child, and when I loose her, I will be here at your pages, smiling at how happy Jessica was in so many photos. our children are "Gods miracles" Please listen to the song "FLY" by Celine Dion, it helps me cope, it will you too.
love and a hug, Sharon
