A Special Treat For Us...

Turn your speakers on!

Reading Terminal Market officially kicked off the holiday season on Friday, November 25th with its annual Holiday Railroad featuring a 500 square foot model railroad with nearly a third of a mile of track. Now in its eighth year, the display features 17 working train lines that rumble through a multitude of miniature scenery including Center City Philadelphia, a Christmas village, and snow-covered countryside.

The railroad display has become an annual tradition that customers and their families look forward to each year. This year, the railroad was expanded by adding more trains, bridges, interactive buttons, and the inclusion of familiar Philadelphia venues within the display. The following organizations sponsored the railroad display for 2011:

* Center for Architecture
* The Gallery at Market East
* Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corp.
* Greyhound Bus Company
* Market Street East Improvement Association
* Marriott Philadelphia Downtown
* Parkway Corp.
* Pennsylvania Convention Center

The railroad will be open until Sunday, January 3rd, 10:00am-6:00pm (closed Christmas Day and New Year's Day) and it is located in the Piano Court of the Reading Terminal Market. Just click the play button and check out the video Grammy made when we went to see it!

Family Christmas Dinner 2011

Today, everybody went over to our cousin's house for the annual family Christmas dinner. Mommy, Grammy, and Pop-Pop were there too. We got a chance to see many of our aunts, uncles, and cousins, but what we liked the most was playing with all of our cousins... Chloe, Jaden (2), Janiah, Laila, Nailah, Miles, Nia, Samaya, and Troy, Jr. We also saw our two baby cousins, Lila and Melainia. They are too little to play with us just yet, but we can look forward to playing with them next year! As always, the food was good and everybody had a great time together. Here are some of the pics that Grammy took while we were there and you can click on the collages for a larger view...

Sleepover w/ Cousin Miles!

Star Date 12.10.11

Saturday night, me and my little sister spent the night away from home. My little sister went to visit with her Godmomie Abby and I went to visit with my Cousin Miles. This was my cousin's first sleepover and his Mommy was very excited about it. She made sure that we had a blast and took all of these great pics to boot!

Good night, sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite! :) :)

Siblings are the people we practice on. They teach us about
caring, cooperation, fairness, and kindness the hard way!


Lord Jesus, You were never too busy to pay attention to children, for You dearly loved them. We are happy that you love us and that You have time to listen to our prayers and to answer them. We thank You that You have made us Your own. As we get bigger and stronger every day, help us to grow stronger in our faith too. Bless our parents, whom You have given to us, and help us to respect and obey them, to love and treasure them. Forgive us when we disobey them or when we fail to respect them as Your previous gifts to us. Give them the wisdom to train us in the good and right way. Bless our home and every member of our family with a strong faith in You and true love to one another. Teach us to be kind, unselfish, helpful, cheerful, forgiving, and faithful in our duties. Help us to be like You, Lord Jesus, to grow in wisdom and character and in favor with God and all people. Send Your angels to watch over us, to keep us from all harm of body and soul. Bless us, and make us a blessing to our family and friends. Amen.

Thank you for stopping by and come back again!
