Deck the halls...................

Decorations are under way....last evening we had Kel's family over for Thanksgiving and what a feast it was. We've been decorating since this past weekend and are about two third's of the way there. Kel has her doll tree to decorate in the office and some kitchen stuff to get out. Hopefully, we'll have it all in place this weekend! Here are some of the pics thus far.............

UPDATE - Kel finished the "doll" tree and the pic is below........I think we're all set now!!!

We've got a busy week ahead of us - RCC Foundation holiday social, Old Town Baptist Christmas Program, Townhouse holiday social and lastly, the Piedmont Club holiday party!!!

Fall Colors

Sunday, we took a ride up to the mountains. We went down 4o to 77 and then took 21 towards Sparta. We got on the parkway around Sparta and headed towards VA. We got off on 89 and came back down through Mt. Airy.

Riding around

Kelley had a bridal shower to attend Sunday afternoon. The pup and I decided we would go for a ride. I think we were gone for a little over an hour. We headed down 65 and took 66 over to 268 and then came back down 52 from Pinnacle.

Here are some pics of Princey..................

doing what pups do best when riding...........

My parent's also were out and about in West Virginia. Below is a picture of the New River Gorge Bridge which is on U. S. Route 19, just north of Fayetteville, WV.

More Rednecks!

I can't let the pictures of my fabulous redneck friends go unseen! Too bad we didn't snap more than we did because everyone had their own redneck fashion statement. Ashleigh and her husband Dusty looked very natural with their redneck outfits, but if there had been an award for the person that looked like a true redneck, I think it would have been Kev!!! The Demolition Derby t-shirt and red bandana really did it. And the 24oz can of PBR that our neighbors gave him was the icing on the cake.

The party was her idea. Look closely - Her shirt says "Big Sexy."
I assume that is the wrestler's neckname!

Check out her "Dirty South" shirt and straw glasses.
More "rednecks" are coming up the hill in the background.

We finally found some pictures for the dining room wall and the great room. The dining room picture came from Kirkland's in Winston and the one in the great room came from Kirkland's in Greensboro.

In taking these pictures, I discovered that our camera will not let us zoom out once we have zoomed in!!! Of course it is no longer under warranty and will cost around $90 for us to send it back to Kodak for them to repair it. We can upgrade and receive 25% off the purchase.

Grillin' on the Green

Kel and I are helping to put together a cookout for our Townhouse community here in our neighborhood. Several of us met last week to begin planning the party. Kel and I had the flyer ready last Saturday and passed some of them out Sunday afternoon. We're just waiting for folks to RSVP. I guess we'll meet again next week to see who's coming and what they're brining. It should be a fun time for all and we hope that most of our neighbors will be able to come out!!!

Out and About

We’ve had a busy week!!! Wednesday evening we attended a dinner at Ruth’s Chris in Greensboro for the Rockingham Community College Foundation. It was a delicious dinner with a good time of fellowship with Talon Club donors. We had appetizers, cocktails, filet mignon, and dessert……..

heading to the RCC Foundation Dinner

Thursday, we attended an open house at the Piedmont Club here in Winston. Our friends, the Chambers, joined us. We had heavy hors d’oeuvres and drinks! It was a beach party theme with shagging and line dancing. Sorry, no pics:o(
