To help Tori count down the days until Christmas, we got her an advent Gingerbread House which she loved opening the doors and getting her little treats. When it came time to decorate the tree, she put the tree topper on. Then when Ashley came, they made a Gingerbread house together and baked cookies together too. Tori sure loves when Ashley comes home to visit and so do we!
We have been talking about visiting Charleston, SC for a while now and we finally did. We spent the weekend at our condo and did a day trip to Charleston. We had a great day. First we visited a outdoor weekend festival where Tori rode a horse, we had wonderful crepes for lunch and spent some time just browsing the different vendors. We also took a carriage ride tour of Charleston where we saw many historic houses. Then we visited the market square looking at the different vendor goods. There were wonderful sea grass baskets that I loved, but where like baskets of gold due to how expensive they were. Then we walked down to the waterfront area where the famous pineapple statue is housed and we could see Fort Sumter from a distance. Tori had fun playing around near the fountains in the plaza area.
Nick and I had a fun time playing with my camera to take some pictures of him his senior year. We went to the train station in downtown Fayetteville and the park near the Main Library. We had a lot of fun and laughter. Here are the more serious photos we took. There were many funny ones too.
