Yesterday morning I had the pleasure of watching Hubby walk across the stage at Samford as he received his Masters in Environmental Management. I was so proud! Not only because he's a National Honors Scholar, has a 3.78 GPA, but also because I looked around and realized that the cutest man there belongs to me!!! After graduation, the Sharpe Family Christmas began.
Just a little background on the way the Sharpe's do Christmas: Hubby's mom is a planner. She loves to plan parties and she loves to surprise people. The parties always have a theme. So, Christmas is an event that requires weeks of planning on her part and always ends with everyone loving what a good time they had. The hard part is that we never know where we're going. This year the theme was Up, Up and Away.
We rode with my Sister-in-law and her hubby. All we knew was that we had to take I59 to Exit 231 and call his Dad when we got there. His parents were waiting at that exit to lead us to our destination. We ended up at this house on a mountain in Cloudland, GA. (I had never heard of it either.) The house was huge and the view was spectacular. It was almost like being in Gatlinburg.
We had a blast! Last night we built a fire in the firepit, roasted marshmallows and were amazed at all the shooting stars. I really had a great time. We ate, played games, ate some more, laughed like crazy, ate. Did I mention we ate? We played a game with hats... I won't go into the details but the girls got a little silly with them later on.
So, I'm home and Hubby has left to go back to Atlanta. Thankfully, it's the last week he has to go. I'll sign-off now. Got to get some Christmas cards ready to send out!
