magic 24 christmas party

yesterday afternoon, we had our magic 24 christmas party. i tell you what, this cast knows how to throw a par-tay. the green room was beautifully decorated, complete with a "fireplace" with sound effects and everything, stockings and a christmas tree with white-elephant gifts underneath it. there was quite a spread of delicious treats, covering two tables and two counters...

santa paid a visit...

we lined up and took turns sitting on his lap. i, of course, didn't pass up my opportunity to tell him what it is i wanted for christmas this year. "i want things to work out for my big brother to star in this t.v. show in china." santa promised that, "if he was a good boy, he'd see what he could do." of course, he's going to make it happen. haven't you ever seen miracle on 34th street?

santa's visit was magical. bill (our hades in "villains". he's brilliant) and his darling wife katherine are a professional "santa and santa's helper" duo. they are no joke. we're talking his suit cost $700 and he's the best santa i've ever seen in my life! he came in and gave every single one of us a hug and took pictures with everyone. again, we were all 5 years old all over again (this seems to be a reoccurring theme).
santa also oversaw our white elephant gift exchange. for my gift, i gave a $15 starbucks gift card and a ridiculous picture of myself in pigtails, with drawn-in unibrow and blacked-out teeth, which i signed "happy holidays! love, cinderella"...complete with the official cinderella signature. when ed, the director of twice charmed, chose my gift, claire and i just about peed our pants. it was too perfect. he's now threatened to keep it in his office forever. the gift was a hit...

following the gift exchange, santa, and his beautiful little helper, led us all in a christmas sing-along. he sure can tickle those ivories! santa can do it all.

we all just kept looking at each other asking, "how do you top this? this cast does it all!"
i feel so lucky to be here with this cast full of kind, charming, hilarious people. i love my new disney family. i love all of the toronto adventures i've had so far and the adventures that are certain to follow.
merry christmas from toronto!
