Snow Tubing

Richard had an idea to drive up to the mountains today and see if we could find some snow. I had been wanting to go to the Mast General Store so I agreed. Then we thought it would be fun to take the kids snow tubing. Kyle called a couple of friends and we headed out.
We found snow, the roads were pretty good and only two hours from home did we run into lots of snow.

Here is the crowd snow tubing. We had to wait for the 6pm session.

The kids were all bundled up and ready to go.
The sun setting over the snow covered mountain was nice to watch.The kids were having fun before they even got on the snow.
before the next session the plow ran over the lanes a few times, it was getting dark before the kids were able to get out on the snow and the pics were all too dark to tell who is in them.
Everyone had a great time, we stopped to eat on the way home and got back before midnight. All in all it was a good day trip. The boys had a good time goofing off at dinner.

Christmas Morning

We had a late start on presents this morning. Richard had to wait on someone to get to work. He got home after 10. the kids were close to having a fit. But they made it through. We all had coffee and hot cocoa with the Keurig mom bought me for Christmas.

Chad and Casey bought Kyle this present and tried to fool him by wrapping it in a box and taping it good. He had a time getting into it.
Kyle, Richard and Chad all got new mp3 players. Richard has never had one and was thrilled with his. I had already put music on memory cards for them to get them started.

Richard got tools, are you surprised? if all else fails, buy Richard tools.

Kyle and Chad both got airsoft guns with accessories. They plan on doing some serious playing.

Surprise Two

I went with Cory and Wyndie to her first dr.s appointment. She had another sonogram done. She is at 9weeks 3days. The doctor says the baby is healthy, what more could we ask for.

Cayden and baby Cor-Wyn will be about three months apart, I hope they will be friends as well as cousins. I loved being close to my cousins growing up, of course I had so many of them.

Edisto Beach Day 3

This is a view of the house from the street. We walked along the beach for some ways with mom, dad, Chad, Casey, Richard and I. Kyle and Billy went riding bikes again to the arcade. Everyone came in late last night right after the guys got back from shrimping about 11:30pm.

Dad went out with the Richard and Billy to check on the crab traps. Richard and Billy have to work tomorrow so they are heading back this afternoon.
I took everyone else for a ride around the island, we stopped at a farm and bought some cookies and bananas for a dessert I had planned on making. We found a few interesting stores to stop at.
Richard and the guys came back with about 35 crabs. He cooked them and mom and I cleaned them after they left. We had ham loaf for dinner, which turned out pretty good I thought.
Larry had called mom earlier and was having problems with his car. He had it towed back to his house, but needs to get down to GA as he will have to be to work by Monday. So mom decided it was best to leave now and head home tonight. So at 9:30 they left. Kyle and I hung out and watched Halloween movies.

Edisto Beach Day 2

We went out to the beach for a little bit today.

Kyle and Billy were trying to catch us on there bikes. We drove to visit a friend of Richards who was staying in the State Park. While we were there Kyle and Billy showed up. They must have had to ride bikes five miles. They were beat and it was starting to rain. They made it back to the game room before getting too wet.
Of course it seems like we are not up very long before they are off to shrimp again and I am once again on my own. Tonight I read a book, wrote in my journal and watched a movie I had brought.

We had plenty of room for everyone, we are expecting mom, dad, chad and casey this weekend. Till then Kyle and Billy both get nice big beds. Richard enjoyed this bed with the canopy, he thought it was to hang his night clothes on.
