Thanksgiving Festivities....

While the football afficionados were all quietly settled in down below in the family room...

The rest of the family rocked on upstairs...

I introduce to you, our Guitar Heroes...

Well, at least until Littlest Dude discovered the mike...

The cousins nicely shared the sticks and skins...

Rock on Wayne ... Rock on Garth!

And so, the football dudes watched in peace while the rest of us rocked the joint as we all gave praise for all our blessings, knowing that, truly, we're all just Livin' on a Prayer ... badumdum!

(somebody, PLEASE!, get this song out of my head. especially that whole "ah-ooga-ooga-ooga-ooga" part. of course, it doesn't help that Eldest Dude hums this particular song/arrangement ALL DAY...)

I really love this post Susan!

Love the fun photos, the way you have captured these memories, I love the decor in your amazing upstairs room - it looks great (like a homewares store) and so comfy!

And doesn't the middle dude in particular look similar to his cousin?!

Hope you guys have a great rest of the holidays :)

I love everyone on their instruments!! Shhhh...we got a wii for the girls for Christmas...and they are getting guitar hero. I have just recently heard about rock band...so we'll have to look into that.

And...you must tell me more about this room. Because it's just gorgeous. Is that a guest room? Your room? A family room with a bed? Your colors...everything...I'd like a clone please...

SKELLER said...

Well, since I "must tell"... ;-)

This is NOT my room, nor my home. And it is, indeed, gorgeous and comfy (it's the master bedroom!). It's my parents' place, and a dang nice place to have a Thanksgiving dinner. :-)

Love your blog and would love to know the name of your paint color!!! We have just bought a home in Tennessee and its all "builders beige" yuck.o
Thanks,
Michelle

SKELLER said...

Oh Michelle, I wish I could help you, but I have no clue what the paint color is. It's my parent's place and was already painted when they bought it. It's a really neat dark brown, tho. But the room doesn't appear dark because the southern facing windows are big and bright and white trim runs around the bottom 1/2 of the walls.
