Peabody Ducks & Downtown Carriage Ride

On Friday, December 30th we made our annual trip to the Peabody to see the Peabody Ducks march to the lobby fountain.  I think this is the 3rd or 4th year we have done this with the Spellings and the Barber's.  All the kids have such a great time.

Here they are waiting not so patiently :)  Honestly they did pretty well waiting the 25plus minutes waited.  There are always so many people waiting to see the ducks march.

The kids and Jamie with the Duck Master.

Following the duck march we head to Huey's for lunch. 
After lunch the crowds have thinned and we returned to the Peabody for pictures and duck viewing.

After we came down from the roof the girls spent their Christmas money from Aunt Ella at Lansky's
in the Peabody.   Abby bought a rubber duck with the hotel name on it and Allie bought at hotel key chain.  On our way out of the hotel the girls (Abby, Allie and Ammie) saw a Cinderella Carriage and asked if we could we take a ride. Ainsley and I checked the price and decided we would do it.  The driver took us down Main Street, Court Square and the park across from the Morgan Keegan tower where we called Raymond and went to the window to see us in the park.  We had never taken a carriage ride and we loved it!  We look forward to our next one.  It was a little chilly but lots of fun.

Grizzle Home Opener

Raymond won tickets to the Grizzles home opener on Wednesday, December 27th.

After the game started the girls took turns playing on my iPhone for a while. 

We walked down Beale Street on our way to the car after the game. It was quite funny explaining Beale Street and the music to the girls.  Abby wanted to know how old she had to be to be able to go into one of the buildings and listen to music.  I told her 21!  We had a great time at the girls first Grizzles game.

Christmas at Granny & Papaw's

After going to Christmas service at church we headed to Savannah for Christmas at my parents.

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve I made snow globe cupcakes.  I took an empty orb coke bottle and cut the top off and placed it over the Rudolph cupcake picks. 

The girls wanted to open one gift before we went to MeeMaw's so I picked the gift and let them open it.  It was the new Llama Llama book and a set of Walt Disney World DVD's. 

Then we went and put out the Reindeer food we made earlier in December.

Jingle the Dog from Meemaw.  The girls were so happy they both got a Jingle Dog from Meemaw
After we opened gifts the girls ended up on Aunt Debbie's iPad and my iPhone.
