Marti brought all kinds of things to do with them, along with the crafts they worked on, nothing was more important than...baking Christmas cookies!
Decorating the cookies was lots of fun, too.
Even Daddy Ryan had to try his hand at it.
The finished product.
Cookies were done just in time to leave some out for Santa. Taylor has been learning about good nutrition in school. She made sure that only four cookies were left out for Santa because she didn't want him to get sick from too many sweets and not be able to finish delivering toys to other kids.
Taylor was also concerned about Santa's reindeer, so she put out a bowl of water and some celery and carrots for them to snack on.
Christmas morning was enjoyable watching the girls open their presents.
Then it was off to church where we watched the girls sing in their kids choir.
The day after Christmas was also special. It was Taylor's sixth birthday. She got a keyboard. She loves music.
She read all her birthday cards to Mimi.
The one thing the girls have enjoyed the most is sleep overs in Mimi and Pa's camper.
We are so thankful to be fulltimers now. None of this would have been possible in our former working lives. It is nice to have an extended visit with our kids and granddaughters. It was worth every bit of work it took to get us here. We sure are blessed. :c)
