Ice Skating Princesses

It was Another school holiday (MLK JR. BDAY) so thought we would try the ice skating thing. I let both girls invite a friend...Mary Bradford loves it, this was Gray's first time but she could not sleep the night before talking about how much fun she was going to have!

Here they are all smiles BEFORE we started (I say "WE" because I got to try my skills too even though I have no pictures to prove it!)

Mary Bradford and Meredith had a blast.....

Gray had a meltdown before entering the ice so I went and put some skates on,and she was all smiles. Her sweet friend Mary Bibb did great and soon they were off by themselves on their little bars for added support....

I only got a few pictures due to getting in trouble for taking my camera on the ice with me while we skated!? (guess I didn't look like I was too stable?! oh well!!) I had so much fun with these precious girls....they were all so sweet!

What could be a more appropriate homework assignment than what Gray had to do during our "SNOW DAY and a HALF" break we had from school. Her class has been reading the book "Snowballs" and were asked to gather things that were listed in the book to decorate their own snowman (ours is of course a snow woman!). She was SO excited about doing homework like Mary Bradford and can't wait for Mrs. April, Mrs. Cathrine, and Mrs. Alisha to see her masterpiece!

Lots and Lots of CHRISTMAS!

It was more than a MERRY Christmas for our family....It is our favorite time of the year and we are so blessed to be able to spend time with each member of both the Nixon and Jackson families. We started before Christmas eve in Anniston then Talladega, back to Decatur on Christmas eve (and yes SANTA did come; Mommy was just too excited/tired to capture those early morning pics!) and then even continued celebrating after Christmas with a great ending in Moulton complete with a birthday party for JESUS! (and all of Nana's great-grands)
