A Geogia Christmas

We got back New Year's Eve from spending a week with Levi, Jenny, and Sydney down in Georgia. We had a great Christmas and a great time with family! Here are a few pictures showing what we did......We popped some poppers that Jennifer sent us and these are the cool crowns that were inside!
We had a nice Christmas Eve dinner with a Honey Baked Ham that Jenny had to go to the store twice before they would sell to her......who knew you had to have an appointment to buy a ham??

Gordon's excited about dinner :o)

Sydney opening her stocking....

Sydney showing off the apron that I embroidered for her

Sydney opening a gift that is bigger than she is!

Barbie riding her scooter....Levi wants one just like it...color and all :o) (yea...right!)

I got a Wii for Christmas and we all had fun playing.
Sydney won the 'Most Improved Player'. This is her bowling stance!Sunday after church with Grandpa
Sydney baked and decorated these little goodies for us.The little Kitty was one of her favorite gifts...it was so cute. It would meow, purrr, open and close it's eyes and stretch out. Oh no....I can't remember it's name :o( It went everywhere we went!

We went to the Coka Cola Factory Museum in Atlanta. Boy, what a crowd there was! It was fun though.It was COLD outside! We had to wait in line to get in. Almost felt like waiting in line at Disney!

Here's the Coke Bear...he was quite cute and fun to watch. Look at his different facial expressions. We didn't get in the line for our picture with him...too long.I just liked this art piece!

I didn't realize that Coke got it's start in Atlanta. The museum was quite fascinating and seeing the memoriabilia was fun.

The BEST part was at the end where they we could test a lot of their different drinks that they offer from around the world. Each stand was of a different continent. There were some very nasty tasting ones and lots of very yummy tasting ones. Jennifer...the one from Honduras was one of the more yummy ones! By the time we left this area, we were pretty sick of soda!
Afterwards, we went to the American Girl Doll store north of Atlanta. Sydney was in little girl heaven!Even Gordon had a good time at the store :o)Sydney had some Christmas money and chose one of the twin dolls....and I can't believe I didn't get a picture of her with her doll!!! Levi will have to send me one of his pictures so that I can post it here.

Have I kept you in suspense long enough about Sydney's big gift? She got a key board! They set it up in her bedroom next to her bed. I showed her how it would play a song, so she would play along with it and when it finished she looked at me and said "I play good, don't I?"

Oh I have to tell you another Sydneyism....we were sitting at the table for breakfast after opening our gifts. I don't remember what the conversation was about exactly but Sydney turned to Jenny and said "All you have to do is give Santa a call on his Cell Phone!!"

There's so much to comment on! First of all, it looks like you guys had such a fun time! You never say what that huge present is that Sydney is opening, now you've got me curious! Sydney looks so cute in all of these pictures, I especially love the one of her with her kitty and with her baked goods. I've always wanted to go to an American Girl store. I've heard that they are pretty amazing. Of course I don't think I would escape without buying a doll, so it's probably a good thing I haven't been. Also funny, when I saw the top photo before reading the caption I thought, Wow, those look like the crowns from the Christmas crackers that I bought. I forgot I had sent some! Levi looks particularly dashing in his lol. Okay, last question...what is the soda on the table next to the ham. I don't know why, but it just looks good....Like I said, looks like a wonderful time. Wish we could have come too!
