Thanksgiving in NC

We got up bright & early Thurs. morning & hit the road about 8:30 heading for NC. We made REALLY good time until we got down into Greesboro & because of lots of new road work down there we ended on 85 heading toward Charlotte...which wouldn't have been so bad except THEN...we got caught up in traffic from a bad wreck. 4 lanes of interstate barely creeping along. We did that for a little over an hour! Even after ALL that we only ended being about 30 minutes late for Thanksgiving Dinner. It was so nice getting to see & visit with everyone! Papaw put his camera on the tripod & got some really good group pics. I had Clay take this one with my camera...that's why he's not in this pic. We're not exactly in perfect rows, but I'll do my best to put a name with each face for you, so here goes...Front row L to R:
David, Amy, Mary, Michael, Brittany, Alli, Ashley, Kayla, Granny & Papaw
Back row L toR:
Chris, Brian, Hunter, Amy, Jon, Steph, Christie, Mike & Caitlin
Friday, Brian took all the guys fishing for a few hours. They had fun & even caught a few fish too! ;-) All us girls had lunch together at McDonald's & then we split up for some shopping. Granny & Amy went off to the antique shops & Steph & I took our gang of girlies & we hit Michaels, Target, etc. All they really cared about was getting to hang out & visit. It was such a nice day on Friday....65 degrees & we just enjoyed walking & chatting all around the shopping center.
The kiddos before we all said our Good-Byes on Friday.

Caitlin, Ashley, Alli, Christie & Brittany

Hunter, Michael & Jon

Chris catching up on a little homework.

Brian...chillin' after a fun afternoon of fishing.
We hit the road around 5:30 or 6pm Friday evening. Clay had promised the kiddos Pizza Hut $5 pizzas for supper, so we headed on up the road a bit & stopped near Winston-Salem & had some supper & then headed on in. Got home around 11pm. Cold & tired, but we had a fun time!!
