January 31On a Sunday afternoon trip to the store we found a
group Sledding at the Food Lion. Sledding
at the Food Lion. It looked like a lot of fun.
January 30"Four Friends on Sled" - We all enjoyed the
snowfall and the kids did a bunch of sledding.
January 27Last night in the second game the SEMS boys also
defeated the NEMS boys. It was a very tough, physical, exciting, close game.
In this shot, one of SE's top players throws down a powerful dunk. See the
January 26Southeast Middle School Girls defeated Northeast
Middle. Here is one of my favorite basketball players going in for the
layup. She had a great game! It makes me proud every time she uses the
backboard! See the other
January 25The bucket boys also performed during half time of
vs Samford Basketball on January 16. These guys put on a very nice show.
They have incredible timing and precision and make a great drum corp using

vs Samford Basketball game on Saturday, January 23. A friend's daughter
dances on the team.
January 23Tabernacle Pee Wee Boys celebrate their first win
of the season on this Saturday.
January 17The Tabernacle Senior Girls get advice and
encouragement from coach Tim during a time out. They played well this
game just came up 4 points short. Way to go girls!
January 16An inside view of the Dixie Grill where we stopped
and had lunch. See other pictures from our Wilmington
January 15A downtown Wilmington sidewalk on a cold December
day. The sign on the right announces the "Dixie Grill" where we stopped for
January 14One last shot from the Dudley game. Here the
cheerleaders perform during one of the time outs.
January 13Michelle had her wisdom teeth removed today. Not a
good day for taking pictures so here is one from the Dudley vs SE game taken
from the upper deck with a different perspective.
January 12The flag bearers saluting the flag during the
Eagle Ceremony on Saturday. Congratulations to Brandon on a great
January 11On Saturday, I went to a terrific Eagle Scout
Ceremony and took a bunch of photos. But on the way home I stopped at the
Rocking F Farm to see what was going on. The folks from Traditional Carolina
Wrestling has brought professional wrasslin' to Climax. These guys and one
lady sure did put on a show. See the photos in the online
January 10Our youth put on a very emotional drama for Youth
Sunday today. It was tough to watch Thomas going through so much and keep
shooting pictures. They really did a great job.
January 9Well, Hello there!
I've never taken many bird
photos before but at the beach in December birds and waves seemed to be the
most available subjects. This little guy landed on a post at the Wilmington
water front and posed so nice I had to take his picture.
January 8Here's another shot from Thursday's games. In this
photo Vandalia goes in for the layup. This was an excellent game by the
Vandalia team. Congratulations to the guys who hung in there during the
tough seasons of late and to the new guys. Looks like they are going to have
a great season.
January 7January 7 The Junior Boys played a game on Thursday
January 7. In this shot (taken by mom - See, told you she was the best!)
Tabernacle drives against Methodists. Tabernacle won the game and now stands
at 2-0 in the early part of the season.
Happy Birthday Mom. You are the Best!On the last day of our trip to
the beach, Tammy, Jeff, Caleb, Michelle and I drove up to Wilmington to see
what was there. We visited UNCW, downtown Wilmington, and of course a bunch
of bookstores. On the way back to Myrtle Beach we stopped at Southport's
City Pier and took some photos. Here is the pier just as darkness was
setting in for the night.
January 5Got to go to the Southeast vs Dudley basketball
games on Tuesday. The place was packed and many where there to see Dudley's
star junior Hairston. He is headed to Carolina in 2011. He put on a good
show scoring 38 points and Dudley won the game convincingly. Dudley has
quite a collection of good players on this squad and they should do very
well this season. The Southeast Falcons played well in a very good effort
but just could not match the size and talent of the Panthers.
January 4This photo was also taken last week during our
beach trip. These colorful crab baskets were stacked on the dock by
the fishery. We sure got our share of the crab legs. We all
went to my favorite seafood buffet, Captain Bennett's. The crab legs
great and everything else was good too. If you are in the Myrtle
Beach area and want some crab legs I highly recommend Bennett's. We
went early to save $40.00 - Early bird special was $4 off per person for the
ten of us. The kids decided the beach trip should become a Griffin
tradition. Sounds good to me!
January 3This pelican was at the Little River, SC waterfront
during our Christmas beach vacation last week. I went looking for old
fishing boats but this waterfront is nothing like the one I am used to in
Beaufort, NC. I was happy to get this shot and a few others of the
birds plus some colorful crab baskets.
January 2Went to the Holiday Basketball Tournament at First
Christian Academy to watch the SE Girls play. Took some photos of
them and the other teams including some of the boys. This was taken
during the first semi-final game of the boys. Congratulations to the
SE Girls as they won the girls tournament. See more of the tournament
January 1Each year, Michelle requires me to paint one of the
rooms in the house. It started with the foyer, then came the dining
room, bed room, living room, and kitchen. This year she decided it
would be our bathroom. While it wasn't a large room it was tough
working around some of the fixtures and the tile. Anyway, she decided
on a purple color and she is happy with the results - which makes me happy
too!. Here is a photo and the my first post of the year to my new
blog hear at Andy Griffin Photography.
