New Ears

Steve and I visited Disneyland in 2005 during their 50th anniversary celebration. I was pregnant with Trevor. We bought infant-sized golden ears, which he has worn during every visit since. There are a lot of wonderful memories associated with those special ears. They've been too small for Trevor for quite some time, but he's worn them anyway. He and I are both attached to them. We'd talked about getting new ears on several different trips, but none of them seemed special enough to replace the golden 50th anniversary ears.

When we visited Disneyland in 2015, that changed. Disneyland was celebrating their 60th anniversary with special diamond-edition ears. Trevor knew these were the ears that he'd been waiting for. He chose a pair with plenty of room to grow, announcing that he'd be wearing these until 2025, when Disneyland celebrates its 70th anniversary.

I'm keeping those special golden ears. Perhaps someday I'll be able to give them to Trevor's child to wear and make wonderful memories. 


  1. Awwww....what a rgeat story! And yes it's happy and sad all at the same time! But even though Trevor now has new "ears", they still follow the same tradition and the fact that he won't upgrade until the next Disney milestone is what's keeping that tradition going!
    Love the title design and the strip of PP that is very "Disney"!

  2. Awwwwwww I loveeeeeeee this! LOVING both ears!! My folks went to Disney BEFORE we knew if Adam was a boy or girl, and so they had "Tucker" embroidered on the ears they bought him! :)

  3. Awww....love the story behing those ears. Glad he found something special to wear for the next decade!
