We spent the week of Christmas in Cookeville and had such a great time. Mark was off the entire week and so we headed to Cooekville on the Sunday before Christmas.

Here is Tay on Christmas morning. She had a good time opening her gifts, but she took her sweet time. She would tear off little pieces, examine them, and then try and put them back.

Granddad read the Christmas story to the girls before everyone opened gifts.

Taylor with her cousins Addie and Ian.

Taylor got a new baby doll from Aunt Blair and Uncle Brandon. This girl loves her baby dolls.

I decided to paint Taylor's toes since mine were painted. They have actually never been painted before. She got my stubby toes :)

Tay having a good time on Christmas morning.

Loving on bunny

She got a new backpack from Grandmom and Granddad. Looks like it fits nicely.

Tay and Uncle Brandon.

At my Grandma's house we always read "The Night Before Christmas". Taylor was "helping" by laying on her cousins lap while he read. She thought it was hilarious!

Of course the girls had matching outfits. They do look pretty cute.

Addie and Taylor had so much fun this Christmas. They played well together and giggled the whole time. Addie called her Tay Tay and sweetie.

My parents have reindeer in their front yard. Taylor was checking them out.

We went to a place called Hidden Hollow in Cookeville to look at the lights. There was a little play ground where we snapped this picture.

We had Taylor all bundled up.

More matching outfits...The grandkids with the grandparents.

Mark grew up making Christmas cookies and wants our family make them around Christmas. Here we are on Christmas day. Taylor helped us ice the cookies.

And she enjoyed eating them too...

The finished project. They were quite yummy (we ate them all in 1 day)!!!

One last picture of the girls.
