Tiger Basketball Game

Thursday night we went to a Tiger Basketball game and thanks to the Ryan Hertter we were in a Private Box on the Club level.

Logan came with his dad and brother, Abby & Logan colored for most of the game.

Abby cuddled up with Meemaw after the game while Raymon watched the end of the UT Bowl Game.

The Peabody Ducks

I took the girls downtown to see the Peabody Ducks the Thursday between Christmas and New Year's.  This is the second year I have done this and it is becoming a holiday tradition for us. 

Waiting for the ducks...

The Duck Master telling us how the Peabody Ducks came to be and that these ducks are rather excited when they exited the elevator and head toward the fountain. 

After seeing the ducks come down we went up to see the city and the duck palace.

Kingston and Camden were able to join us...
I love these pictures, it looks like the kids are talking to the ducks.

After we left the Peabody we walked down to Beale St. and I took some pictures there but I guess since my camera battery was dying I guess they did not save....

Wii Fun

Oh how wii have enjoyed our new Wii!  Right after we set it up Christmas morning the girls started creating their Mii's and then played bowling.

Running on Wii Fit

I added our cat to the Wii Fit and now she is the running guide on the Free Run

The girls like to play 100 pin bowling, archery and sword fight duel. 

The most commonly said phrase to the girls while playing the Wii:
"Back up from the TV!"

Christmas at Granny & Papaw's

After opening gifts at home and setting up the Wii and letting the girls play for a few minutes on it we packed up and heading to my parents house.  It snowed on us off and on the way there but none of it seem to stick.  It continued to snow all day and night and when we woke up Sunday morning there was a very light dusting of snow on the ground.

Christmas Morning

Christmas Morning....Santa brought a Wii for the girls and a Wii Fit for Raymond and I.

Time to open gifts!  Abby wanted to give Allie a gift this year so I took her the Disney Store and she picked out a Flynn Rider doll for Allie.  While I was there I was able to buy for Abby as well so she got a Flynn Rider as well.  Allie gave Abby a Barbie Loves Jessie Doll. 
Toy Story Mania Game for the Wii!!!  (it is rather fun)

We had a great Christmas morning! We are truly blessed.

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve night was at Meemaw's house.  We have Tops BBQ for dinner and then opened presents.

Allie & Hannah

Cookies for Santa and Food for the Reindeer's

We left Santa a Sugar Cookie and Milk and Pascal the Elf a Chocolate Chip Muffin since he would be returning with Santa overnight. 

But before we could leave to go to MeeMaw's on Christmas Eve we had to leave some oats for the reindeer to snack on while Santa was here leaving our gifts.
This year's reindeer food was Oats and red and green sprinkles.

The parade that did not happen

Saturday, December 11th was suppose to be the Annual Germantown Christmas Parade.  It started raining early that morning and rained off and on all day.  Normally we would not have went to the Germantown Parade or cared that it was cancelled.  But this year Allie's baton group was going to walk in the parade and they had been working for a few weeks to get their marching routine together.  And I had to buy a costume for the parade and Allie looked so cute in it!

Here are a few pictures I took when she tried the outfit on to make sure it fit.  She is not wearing her tights or shoes but still looks really cute!
