Christmas 2010

We had a wonderful Christmas season! My mom came into town the weekend before Christmas and we went to snacks with Santa at our church. Meredith got over her fear of Santa back in November when we saw him at a festival and after some coaxing and an offer of candy from the big man himself (note to self, talk to her about taking candy from strangers). Tinsley has been pretty clingy for some time so we didn't think she would be happy with Santa. Each of the girls got their own turn with Santa and Tinsley did cry but she settled down after a minute. Meredith practically ran to him. Below is the picture of them together.

On Tuesday our Chick-fil-A does a kid's night and this particular Tuesday the Santa Cow and Elf Cow were there. Being that Meredith loves cows we couldn't pass this up.

On Christmas Eve mom and Meredith made cookies for Santa. Meredith was almost more excite to see if Santa ate her cookies than to see if he left her a gift. We put the girls in their matching jammies, courtesy of Melissa.

Christmas morning brought both the girls what they wanted. A dollhouse for Meredith and a shopping cart for Tinsley. Luckily they have enjoyed playing with each others toys without too much fighting.

Georgia had its first White Christmas in over 100 hundred years. Ours started at about 5pm and didn't really get to accumulating until the girls went to bed, so they enjoyed it yesterday. Tinsley really like the snow and wanted to sit and play. Meredith always talks a big game, but when you get her out in it she freaks a little.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Rowdy Rowleys!

We're still here

I cannot believe it has been over a month since I have posted! We have just been busy living our lives. We did go to FL for Thanksgiving and while we were there we went to the Happiest Place on Earth...Disney World. We had two days left on our pass from our visit in May so we went to use those up. We had a great time and the weather was great. Our special treat was lunch with the princesses at Epcot. Meredith loved it, she bounced up and down all day.

The girls in RC Car at the hotel.
Meeting Belle and Beast. Meredith loves Beast but did get a little stand-offish when it was our turn.
At lunch with the princesses.
The trip was made on the first day right when we walked into the gate, Daisy Duck was there. She was the only clubhouse member Meredith didn't get to meet in May.

Buzz and Woody, always a favorite.

At Animal Kingdom a lot of the characters were dressed for Christmas.

This is the only picture I have from Thanksgiving. I was making bows and just enjoying the day so I forgot to take pictures. Speaking of bows, I am making them now. Some of what I have done are below.
