Getting ready for Christmas

The day after Thanksgiving is when we go out to find our Christmas Tree. Mackenzie was so excited. It was such a beautiful day and the sun was shining. Kenny loves the fact he can wear a t-shirt outside in late November.

I love Scarlett's little smirk in this photo! She was in such a great mood.
...and loved playing in the back of the van while we got the tree ready to load.
Here we are at the house getting out all the decorations.
Mackenzie surprised us and decorated the tree all by herself! She is so creative!

Mackenzie loved Nana's cherry pie!

Uncle Matt took a break to play dolls with the girls. He was such a good sport.

Music City Trip - Day 3

Day 3 of our trip to Music City, USA......i.e. Nashville, Tennessee......was country music day!

We took a drive to the Grand Ole Opry which, if you didn't know, is the most famous live country music venue in the world.
Unfortunately we couldn't get a tour as they were setting up the venue to get ready for the Radio City Christmas Special which starts next week. :-( But we did get to see the place and the beautiful grounds and of course we able to visit the gift shop!

The beautiful fall colors outside the Grand Ole Opry
and the beautiful girls too....

Choose your tool Cam!


Is there anything more fun than playing with leaves in the Fall??


Then it was back to down town Nashville for a walk along Broadway where all the bars and restaurants have country and honky tonk bands playing in them.


and we even got to see Elvis......he lives!....
and it looks like he like to take kids for ride on his skateboard now?!!???

We then went to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum


Cam was impressed by Webb Pierce's "Silver Dollar Cadillac" complete with walnut paneling inlayed with silver dollars and revolvers for door handles!

Kenny and Scarlett checked out one of the many walls covered in gold and platinum records.

Mr Black and Miss Black Jr with Johnny "The Man in Black" Cash's famous suit

But lots of walking ends up with lots of tired feet....and Dad with a tired back!
We even saw the original Grand Ole Opry which is known as the Ryman Theater and was just round the corner from our hotel

After a late afternoon nap for eveyone we headed out for the evening and went out for a nice Italian meal and a walk along Broadway listening to the music and checking out the cool shops on the way back to our hotel.

Mac even found a way to follow in her Mum's footsteps......maybe she will end up making a career in this town someday????

Kenny even treated himself to his first ever cowboy hat and Scarlett seemed to like it.

When we finally got back to our hotel that night it was time to pack up and be ready for an early flight home the next day......and for the girls this was as much fun as any other part of the trip!!!!

Music City Trip - Day 2

Day two of our trip to Nashville, TN was Football Day!!!!!


Hopes were high for the chances of a win for the Buffalo Bills as they were playing the Tennessee Titans, but both teams have been struggling somewhat this season.

Kitted out in all the Buffalo Bills gear we headed off on the short walk to the game with beautiful weather and temps in the low 70's.


It was a pretty impressive stadium and our seats were right at the very last row of the upper section on the 50yd line. It gave us a great view but, my goodness, did it get hot up there in the sunshine!


Mac even got to meet one of the Titans cheerleaders and got her picture taken with her!

It was a great day, but the result never ended up going our way with the Bills losing. But that did not dampen our spirits at all.
