A VERY Merry Christmas!

Santa did indeed stop to see the Roy girls this year! Here's a picture of the STASH before the girls got into it!
Julia had such a great time opening ALL of the gifts and was such a good helper for the rest of us!
All the excitement just wore Gracie out

Train Museum & a Visit to Santa

On Saturday we went to the train museum in downtown Jackson and had a GREAT time! We have been meaning to get there as we have found out that both girls LOVE trains, but finally found a morning that we could get there! The girls loved sitting in the train car and being able to go inside a real dining car AND red caboose (below)! We spent lots of time looking at the HUGE model train set that they had set up in a whole room!!!
Ryan and the girls outside the RED caboose!
After our visit to the museum, we stopped by to see Santa at his house downtown. This was our LAST opportunity to let him know exactly what we wanted. Even though Gracie did NOT want to sit on his lap, Julia made sure that Santa had taken care of both of their lists! What a FUN Saturday morning!

Julia's Playschool Program

Julia had her Christmas program at Playschool on Tuesday morning and it was SO cute! She knew ALL the words of ALL the songs even though they only had 2 weeks to learn them!
A very special visitor even came to make sure that he had everyone's updated Christmas list!

Gracie even made sure that she let Santa know what she wanted for Christmas!

Princess Birthday Cookies

Julia got to take pink princess crown cookies to school this week to celebrate her birthday (a week EARLY because of Christmas vacation). She helped me get the dough all ready and even helped me get the princess crowns just right on the pan before baking. It looks like I have disturbed her hard work in the pic above. Sorry, we forgot to take pictures of the final product but they were SO yummy! We have an upcoming princess birthday party this weekend! Wish us luck (with the weather AND the party)!!!!

Christmas Preview

We got some cute pictures of the girls in front of our tree last weekend after we got it up and decorated. We hope to get a "Christmas card picture" this coming weekend with their Christmas dresses. Hopefully they will cooperate as well as they did with these pictures. They are growing up so fast.....!!!!
