dinner at the fish market

We celebrated Becca's birthday by going to the Marrieta Fish Market for dinner. I don't think they serve seafood without it being fried first! With that being said, well I don't think I should go on! Little Charlie made a new discovery... Ranch!!! It must be all toddlers that love ranch because I remember my little toddler class at kindercare and they LOVED ranch as well!
So, I don't eat seafood nor do I ever go to restaurants where seafood is the specialty. However, I was able to eat baby shrimp which is very mild. I know Charlie is hoping this will change since he LOVES seafood!

Christmas Eve

Little Charlie had all eyes on him. I think everyone loves having a little boy around!

We spent Christmas Eve at Jon and Becca's home. They had homemade chili and Becca's mom Nita made trays and trays of treats. Baby Charlie was always being held by someone and he just loved all the attention! We read from the book of Luke in the New Testament right before we opened gifts. We played with the gifts we recieved including pick up sticks, watching the slinky drop off each step down the stairs, and coloring in Charlie's coloring book. It was a wonderful evening and I'm so glad we are here in Georgia with Charlie's family.

{delightful downtown} Greenville, SC

Downtown Greenville was charming and delightful. We made the most of the time we had.
There were many shops and restaurants lining Main street.
The town was clean as a whistle and the locals were very kind.
It looks very much like a city when you are driving from the outskirts but when you get up close, and walk down the streets it has a very quaint, small town feel.

Moira had been downtown many times and was able to give us the lowdown on what to do and what to see. We all had a great time enjoying the sites and the shops but the best part was being silly and laughing so, so hard! Moira has this 'scary' laugh that she can do impromtu, so I asked her to do it and after a few seconds we were all laughing histerically, and I'm talking loud and uncontrollably histerical!! haha, that was the best part of the day for me! Oh I love you Moira!!

Mast General Store

I think I'm loving Greenville more and more every minute I spend here.
The Mast General Store was darling with nostalgic toys and gifts and old fashioned candy. There was also clothing and even more clothing but I didn't pay too much attention to that.
My hubby and I bought a few gifts for the little one and for our nieces and nephews.
I'm excited for Christmas and for New Years in Savannah!!

dining in Greenville

We went to Sticky Fingers in downtown Greenville Monday night.The restaurant gives you a towel instead of a napkin, so you can only imagine the mess we made!! My favorite part about being in Greenville is being with my little family and Charlie's parents and having a mini vacation in our vacation! Yeah, it's pretty nice!
