Christmas Fun!!!!

Last week started the Christmas festivities for our family. Saturday morning Gracie was in a parade with her dance class. They dressed up as Santa's elves. It was cute and fun for the girls. Thankfully the weather wasn't to cold that morning. Gracie said her favorite part was throwing candy to everyone. Saturday night Luke & I took Gracie to see the Rockettes. WOW!!!! Gracie and I loved the show! I think Luke enjoyed it too. After the show we went shopping for toys for tots. She picked out two gifts one for a boy and one for a girl. Then off to dinner. It was fun having a night out with just Gracie. This week is school parties and the Polar Express Train ride on Saturday. My parents Nana and Pawpaw will also be in town this weekend. Christmas is here!





We headed to Dallas for Thanksgiving this year. The kids did great flying and had a blast visiting their grandparents. We spent Wed. & Thursday night with my family. Friday and Saturday with Granna & Papa Luke's parents. The food was yummy!!!! We ate way to much but that's what you do during the holidays, right.? My cousin Robbie and his family came intown with my 92 year old PawPaw Flash. It amazes me he still gets on the floor and plays with the kids. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of this. Karli is Robbie's little girl. She turns 2 next week. Happy early birthday Karli. Luke's Aunt Janice and Uncle Tom came over with Grandma Byrd. She is in her 90's as well. I hope I can get around as well as our grandparents in my later days. We spent Saturday with Aunt Lisa and got to meet her new little dog Miley. Too cute!!!! Uncle Dusty, Aunt Lilta, & Eric came over Saturday night to watch the Oklahoma game. We returned Sunday night exhausted but anxoiusly awaiting our next visit. Thankfully, everyone will be traveling here for Christmas. Hopefully, we will return to Dallas this Spring. Or maybe we'll just send the kids. The week before we left the kids celebrated with their Thanksgiving Feast at school. Gracie lost 2 teeth and Ellis discovered she likes rice cereal. I can't beleive she's 6 months old the 11th. She's a great baby and a blessing to our family. Christmas will be fun this year!!!
