One of Mamie's favorites--A Fisher Price purse with "lipstick" in it. She puts her lipstick on about 20 times a day.

I tried all day to get a picture of Ty, Lexi, and Mamie, and they would NOT cooperate.
Do you notice anything??? Maybe that Ellie and Carly Beth have giant, flashy keyboards with a stand, and Lilly is holding her TINY version as she stands next to them? Her mommy did not do a good job :( I felt terrible. My uncle gives us money each year to go buy their gifts. Tressa and I had talked and I knew that she and Christi were getting keyboards and microphones for their girls. I thought that was a great idea and knew that Lilly would love that and they would also love having the same (ha ha) thing to play with. So, I went to buy the keyboard and microphone. I knew theirs came from Toys R Us, but I didn't have time to drive from Lebanon to Cool Springs that day, so I opted for Target. I found this cute little pink keyboard and a separate microphone and decided she would love them. When I saw Ellie open her gift, I knew I had screwed up. I wanted to go hide under something. I felt so sorry for Lilly, but she really didn't seem to notice at all and seemed to have just as much fun with her little one. Thank goodness. Next year I'll remember that it's worth the drive to get the right thing!

The Saturday after the snow, Sassy took Lilly to make a gingerbread house. Aunt Kim and Hollis also went, so I only have her pictures. Anyway, we didn't really know it was going to be such an elaborate family affair. Next year I am definitely planning on going. Lilly had a wonderful time and got to spend the night with Sassy all by herself the night before. Of course, no overnight trip to Sassy's is complete without a trip to Cool Springs, which Lilly and Mamie both refer to as "Sassy's mall" since she always takes them there.
