My brother Jim (I still call him Jimmy) informed us just after Thanksgiving that he and my oldest brother were coming back down to take my sister and I out to dinner, just us siblings. We hadn't ever done something like this and both my sister and I thought this was a wonderful idea.
So my brother tasked me with finding a place to eat and I finally settled on Captain Ratty's one of mine and David's favorite restaurants. CR has an amazing casual environment and serves fab seafood and steak, my favorite is their crab cakes.
So I took the tin foil off my potato and recited the age old speech . . . . . and promptly my sister snatched it from my hand. UGH! I never could hold onto it for very long.
After dinner we walked around down town to look at the lights and came to Bear Square where Santa was meeting and greeting kids in PJ's while "snow" feel from the roof tops (shaved ice machines on the roofs).
We were standing on the corner looking up into a big cypress tree FULL of lights.
Jimmy started making fun of my oldest brother Ted and his belly (which April and I thought was rotten pool) SO I snapped a picture of him . . . . . isn't this flattering of him LOL
Then we walked around to Union Point Park and looked at the Christmas tree in the gazebo
This is me trying to get the right setting on the timer to get in the photo LOL
My brothers and sister thought we had to bend over to be level with the camera in order to be in the shot LOL.
Finally got a good shot of us and standing upright HAHA
I saw this cute dress in a shop window, I need to go back and find out how much it is because it really is adorable!
The clock tower all lite up
An amazing evening, so much fun!!! We have decided we need to do this more often and so we are already planning on April and I going up to the boys area and taking them out to dinner for their birthdays in February. Maybe then I can get the precious pearl back from my sister!!!!!
April posted a picture of the pearl on FB when she got home from our dinner,
she has put in on a candle stand to display and BRAG that she has it!
