We went to Texas between Christmas and New Year's to see Dean's family. You can tell we were really excited about going as we pulled out of our driveway...
10 hours later, we pulled in, and saw the neighborhood was full of deer......so lovely!
They hung out in the front and back yards of everyone's homes.
They slept in the yards, unafraid of people.
Remember those little hats for little boys...here they are....a hit!
the gnome doll was a hit too...with someone's little brother!
I made a scarf for Dean's grandmother. She looks great and liked the scarf. Dean was enjoying visiting with her.
and she really loved all the attention from ALL the grand kids and great grand kids!
I think his mom enjoyed having them around too......
and as usual, we all laughed a lot.
Even though we got to see everyone, part of the trip was a bit messy...both kids got sick as dogs and stayed in bed for 2 days!
Because of that, we didn't stay with Dean's other sister in Houston. We just spun by for an hour....long enough to contaminate them all but I forgot to take pictures.
It was the first time we'd been back to our beloved state since 2005....and oh boy, I am READY to move back!
