Black Friday???

So what is it with calling the day after Thanksgiving BLACK FRIDAY?  Why don't they call it Yellow friday or Brown friday or even Green friday? Here is what Wikipedia has to say about it.
Here is what we did instead of shopping!!!

We enjoyed the 1/4 mile walk out to the beach with the Morris Head Lighthouse in the distance.

James didn't think the water was nearly as cold as the Oregon Coast!

We could not let James go back to WV without tasting some local seafood.
We ate Lunch at Vickery's on Shem Creek!

On our way thru Charleston we had to stop while Engine #102 backed into the Firehouse! If you look really close you will see the time and outside temp.

We also drove over to the River Dog's Stadium so that James could see where they play.

Darren worked all afternoon preparing our Turkey dinner! (Turkey Bowl with the boy's in the Morning)

Some snacks to hold us over until dinner!

Ben, Jacquie & James enjoying the snacks, before a movie or two!

A beautiful sunny Thanksgiving day in Summerville!

My there are so many leaves to tromp thru!

Tuesday Update!

Jacquie & I put this project together for our last Stamp Club night!

Here is an updated picture of those squares from last week. The blurry roll of fabric will become part of this square project. Maybe not this week but soon!

Love these buttons I found at Wal-Mart, pkgs of 100+ for 2.49$

This project uses paper rectangles and ink and may show up in your mailbox in the near future!

We hope that each of you have a very wonderful and safe Thanksgiving week!!!

Fall Pictures from around our Home.

Just some random pictures to help us remember Fall in Summerville.

This was before I swept the driveway for the second time this Fall!


I planted this Mum last winter, it was in a pot in the house last fall. I never watered it during the summer, and it survived and has beautiful Yellow blooms to boot!

So the day after I swept the driveway the remnants of Hurricane Inez  made a huge mess again, this looks good compared to what it looks like today!

This was one of the wildflower seeds I planted in this pot last spring, it finally bloomed and I thought I better get a picture before it disappears. (iPhone picture)

Dodge Ball

Tonight the Deacon's were in charge of the combined activity. They compared playing dodge ball to avoiding the fiery darts of Satan.

It was challenging to get these pictures without getting hit by a ball!


Both the Young Men & Young Women enjoyed the challenge.  All had cookies and soda to replenish there energy levels when the games were over!
