It started out with a snowy drive up to Brad's parents house on High Rock lake. We don't get much snow here so everyone was flipping out!
We arrived to a house DECKED out with Christmas decor!
Here's the Stephen's tree. Ms. Becky was a teacher for 30-years so she has tons of ornaments kids gave her.
Then we celebrated with a fish fry! Mr. Joe fried up scallops, oysters and shrimp and.. there were crabcakes too!
Brad was hurting the next day. Shellfish doesn't do him any good.
Here were are! Sans me.
The family in front of the fireplace. Have I told you before that I'm obsessed with fireplaces? Especially wood burning ones. They are THE BEST!
The other Stephen's clan sans Paige. She was in bed already.
Reed in front of the fire. Such a cutie!
And.. this is what we woke up to the next morning.. SNOW! The front of the Stephen's lake house.
And.. the back. I know..I know.. it's not much snow but at least it's some!
Baby Paige playing with her brother's toy bucket.
YAY!!! Such fun!
Then we ventured into Historic Salisbury for a little family outing. Here Reed is on a mechanical horse.
He wasn't so sure at first but rode it a 2nd time! He kept looking at himself in the window! They even got him to ride with just one hand!
Then.. later Saturday night we traveled back up near Charlotte for a Christmas Party. It was at the home of one of Brad and Jeff's fraternity brothers from VA Tech.
Talk about bachelor pad! He turned his formal dining area into a bar!
Here we are dolled up in our holiday attire!
Then the party really started.. Dance Party USA! Not sure why Brad wanted us to get a photo with our legs up so bad?
