F= Favorite color – all time favorite is dark brown, but I go through phases where I like certain colors for a while. Right now I really like orange, but I’m also excited about navy and white for spring – very nautical, love it.

H= Hometown – Georgetown, SC

V= Vegetable you don't like – most cooked veggies (things like broccoli, mushrooms, carrots – I’ll eat them raw but not cooked). I don’t eat spinach at all, unless it’s in spinach and artichoke dip and that’s a whole other story – yum!

The Friday after Christmas was the day of the Clemson and Carolina bowl games. Matt and I both made sure we had off from work - and we even borrowed Scott's high definition cable box so we could watch them "in style". Of course, this was after we missed the first quarter of the Clemson game because our cable went out!
Anyway, I digress. Scott, Matt's niece & her boyfriend came over to watch the Clemson game (early afternoon). Later on we were joined by many friends to watch the Carolina game. As you can see here, we are setting a perfect example for the youngins! Please note our new TV...
PS - WE WON!!! (and Clemson lost - ha ha ha!!!)
Here are some snapshots of us on our "Christmas morning", which is actually the morning after Christmas.
The first photo is of Spencer helping Rio open his stocking. The 2nd is of Matt opening his 2 HDMI cables that go with his new TV which was actually in the house next door. 3rd photo is of me opening a present and the last one is of Spencer opening his 'big' gift, a new PSP.
I must admit, we were all quite spoiled. A rundown of gifts...
