Happy Birthday Mickey and Minnie!!!

Happy 85th Birthday to Mickey and Minnie Mouse!!!

Mickey and Minnie made their film debut in "Steamboat Willie" on November 18, 1928. That makes them 85 years old today!  Every year, I get excited for their birthday since I share a birthday week with them!  (My birthday is this Wednesday.)

I thought that I would celebrate by posting some of my favorite pictures of me with Mickey and Minnie through the years.

It all started with a mouse... so what better place to start than the beginning?  

This is the first time my brother, Jeremy, and I met Mickey Mouse.  I still have my first Minnie Mouse ear hat!  I also included this photo of Eliot meeting Mickey for the first time!

Unfortunately, after these adorable photos, I have to jump ahead to photos of Eliot and I with Mickey and Minnie closer to present day.  I've mentioned before that project "raid my mother's family photos" will be in effect this Thanksgiving and Christmas... then I'll have a lot more of our family photos through the years!  (For those of you who have followed my blog, there are a few familiar photos from other posts.)

Here we are with Mickey Mouse in January of 2009.

And with Minnie Mouse in January of 2009.

In June of 2009, we visited Mickey and Minnie during my first ever trip to Disneyland.

We also saw Mickey in California Adventure.

We visited with Mickey and Minnie again during October of 2010 for our first ever Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.

Of course, we couldn't have a Disney Wedding without inviting our favorite mice!  In September of 2012, they joined us at our Walt Disney World Wedding Reception. 

 Dancing with Mickey, Minnie and our guests at our reception was a dream come true.

They also helped us cut our wedding cake.

And we posed for a few pictures before they had to leave.

Scuba Mickey arrived later on in the reception with a special message for us.

A few days later, we visited them again at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.

Finally, we visited Mickey and Minnie at Chef Mickey's for the first time during our Disneymoon to Walt Disney World in March of 2013.

Hopefully, the next time I see Mickey and Minnie, it will be when I'm crossing the finish line at the Walt Disney World Half Marathon in January!!!  °o°
