This year for Christmas, the Carson's decided to change the venue from my in-laws to a big ol' cabin in the Smoky Mountains.
We surprised my neice and nephew with the trip by making a video with clues about where we might be; Bill wrestling "a bear", me as a hillbilly eating pancakes, and Atha as "Dollie" with David narrating it all, let's just say I have to be sure I have been to the bathroom before watching because it is hilarious !!!! But I don't think any of us would ever make it big as actors- LOL
The kids were really surprised and we all had a great time. We got to see snow, walk the strip in Gatlinburg, eat really good food like chocolate gravy (a Carson Christmas tradition), pancakes and ribs (from Calhoun's are #1), and play pool, air hockey and UNO and of course shop, my favorite pastime.
And we are already in talks for next year's trip....
