‘Tis the holiday season and blogging has been getting away from me. How do busy people blog all the time if they are out being so-called “busy” all the time? Oxymoron.
Anyway, we had some visitors in the past month or so including Groovy Grampy, Barb, Julie, and Granma. Groovy, Barb, and Julie came the weekend after Thanksgiving and it was so mild outside the whole time, I loved it. We had a great time showing them around downtown Fredericksburg, a visit to Chatham Manor, Chancellorsville, and dinner at Blue & Gray Brewery. Julie and I headed out for some sister sister time after Abby went to bed one night and had martinis at Park Lane which had a cover band, and then headed over to Cheeseburger in Paradise where we witnessed some awesomely bad karaoke. I can’t even describe the karaoke that took place… the variety of songs and singing skills that we heard was all over the place haha. Screamo-death metal to Angel of Mine by Monica, and a group rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody (complete with head banging) and even some Matisyahu. Here are the pics:

Beautiful evening downtown, looking at antiques
Julie and I enjoyed some Sammy T’s frozen yogurt while walking around. Half of their machines were down which didn’t leave many choices but it was good to hold us over until dinner.

Groovy got the sampler!

Taking time to smell the flowers. 🙂
Granma then came to visit the following weekend and we all went to the Christmas parade downtown together and met up with B1 and B2. Afterwards we had dinner at Sam’s. The following day I took Janet to see Chatham Manor even though it’d be better to go in spring or early fall, but it was still pretty. We also enjoyed some lunch from The Trolley Stop Cafe which was good.
Someone getting a bit sleepy with Pop Pop, waiting for Santa at the end of the parade…
It was a long parade and it was chilly but finally Santa arrived and Abby got to wave and say “ho ho”!
Aw, having silly time with Granma!
Kisses for Granma at Chatham!
