We left our R Holiday campground fairly early and
We got set up and went over to Jon and Kelly's for dinner and catching up. It was good to see them and the dogs. We left here three months ago when it was pretty warm. Things have changed and it is a little chilly but really pretty nice fall weather.
Pam and ran some errands yesterday around town and I did some more work online. After an early dinner last night, we all went to a Christmas party and had a good time. That doesn't always happen but it was at a Golf Course and had a nice atmosphere to it.
We met some folks and talked with some we knew and then came to the main event -- we all broke up into teams. As we came in we were handed a card with a reindeer's name on it. We all relocated to different tables where our teams were located. Mine was Dancer. We had six on our team.
Then for the friendly group events and competition. First was building a ginger bread house. Each table was given a 'kit' and away we went. Timed event (5 minutes). We started out way ahead and did pretty well with one of the higher scores based very subjective scoring. :)
Next was a skit, scene from a movie or song with a Christmas theme. I don't remember many movies but I think it was a scene from a Chevy Chase (Christmas Vacation - 1989) movie "They want you to say Grace...". We did OK on that one too.
Then we picked one among each team to get decorated like a Christmas Tree. Some pretty good ones there.
Somehow our team managed to squeak it out and we ended up with win in overall points. It was great fun, a good way to meet some people and worth a Starbucks gift card. I loved meeting these folks. I meet a guy who is a policeman and another guy who is a software developer.
So that was our Friday. Three and a half hours of driving to Virginia Beach where we will be staying for a good part of the winter. The Christmas season is definitely underway and it was a fun evening.
Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
