Christmas 2009

Snow in Texas. Snow in Texas in December. Snow in Texas in December at Christmas. Doesn't happen very often, and personally I'm glad for that. But, it's okay for the thrill the kids out of it.

The kids were over last night for our gathering, and Robert's 25 minute drive home took an hour and a half. And then they had to walk the last 1/4 to 1/2 mile because they couldn't get the truck up the hill because of the slipping. The kids were real troopers, and wrapped their blankets around them for the hike.

Speaking of the grandkids blankets, here are the happy recipients. Lily acted like she was sleeping under hers, Rhett was being silly, and Ashlynn just smiled sweetly.
We managed to get in a game of bowling on the Wii. I've only had it a short time, so it was fun to have everyone joining in. Lily beat the socks off everyone with her skills, but we all had a good time. The kids get a laugh out of my bowling technique, and I'll admit I came in last place, but it was fun. Gee, it's a shame I've run out of room or I'd post the picture. ;)

While it's still Christmas, I'll say, "Merry Christmas to all".

Ah, no snow here. Rats! I would've enjoyed it.

Thanks for the compliments on my rug and chair. The chair was purchased at a furniture store in Longview. I've never reupholstered anything.
