….Christmas, that is. We sure do like this time of year! We got to spend all day Monday with Parky and Aunt LeAnn. We went and rode a ride called “The Pink Pig.” It was like a train but it was pink and decorated like a pig. We also went to lunch at the Taqueria and made sugar cookies at home. Also on Monday, we celebrated Aunt Kristen’s birthday. We had cupcakes for her and presents, of course! We played a lot at home in addition to a special trip with Mommy, Daddy and Aunt Kristen to Stone Mountain. There were so many lights! Ryan turned 7 months old this week so you can see her picture in her birthday crown here. The older she gets the less she seems to like that crown! One night we got all bundled up and walked around the neighborhood to look at lights. Kitt and Garet especially love the “Music Lights” house. The news cameras were there that night, too, but we didn’t make the cut for nightly news. We are looking forward to all that this week holds, too, and will be excited to report to you next week from our “Christmas House.”
What a colorful blog this week! And to think you found purple lights – your favorite color. Everyone is so dressed up, and I believe I saw “dancing shoes” on Ryan. What a big girl she is becoming. Kitt, how relaxed you look stretched out on the staircase with your favorite stuffed animals. I didn’t think Elmo ever got to come out of the crib; but because it’s getting close to Christmas, I guess it was a special treat for him! Garet, you look as though you are about to “burst” with excitement surrounded by all the lights. You are so lucky to live in a fun place where you can visit Stone Mountain and have lights synchronized with music! Aunt Kristen said this was her best birthday in a long time, and I know you helped make her celebration so special. As your mommy said, next blog will be written from our “next Christmas house” so Poppy and I can’t wait. So until then, I’m sending you lots of love and kisses and saying a special prayer for you each day. Granny xoxoxo
Good morning, girls! It looks like you have really involved yourselves with all the Christmas activities. Did you have fun playing with Parky and riding the Pink Pig? And I know you love seeing all the Christmas lights! Stone Mountain also looked like it was lots of fun, too. Kitt and Garet, you both look so big sitting on your Daddy’s shoulders. Were you able to see lots of things from being so high? And, Ryan, happy 7 month birthday to you! Did everyone sing to you? You sure looked cute (and smart) wearing your birthday head band. Well, it’s time for Poppy to go to Panera Bread for his morning coffee, so I’ll say bye for now and I am excited about being together with you for Christmas. Love you lots! …Poppy!
