A Fun-Filled Holiday Celebration

We had a very nice time yesterday over at AP and UT's. There was plenty of food, family, friends, and fun.

Cornhole was a big hit. I've never played before, but I learned a little bit about it, and of course asked the most brilliant question of all: What do they put in the little bags they throw? Beans? Small stones? NO.........CORN. Hence the name, CORNHOLE. I swear, sometimes I can be really ditzy.

My brother-in-law loves a good beer, and there was plenty of it to go around yesterday!

Yes, Ted was studying the label of the beer he was drinking.


We did a lot of chatting too...it's always fun to just take the time to catch up on things with friends.

As the sun went a little lower in the sky, it was time to get a fire going. John really enjoyed getting it started. He took his job VERY seriously...and was VERY successful!


He and Allison watched it carefully, making sure that it didn't go out.

Patty and BJ were giving John moral support by cheering him on.

Our niece Holly, along with her friend Sharon, and UT were having a great time as the evening wore on.


Okay, this was the part that I just didn't get...I don't know who came up with the idea of bringing an electric guitar and amp outside at 10:30 pm, but many of them took turns playing it. Tim is playing with Joe, Alex, Ted, and John looking on. Unfortunately they didn't take requests.

When Tim decides to wear a cup as a hat, it's time to call it a night!

I hope all of you had a great holiday weekend!
