Life in Texas – Monday December 24, 2007


We’ve been enjoying ourselves down here.  Texas welcomed us with very nice weather, but something happened on Saturday and things got rather cold.  Sunday morning, I think it was below 30 when we wokeup (er, I mean, when some people woke up).  I don’t think it will take long for my in-laws to find out how much I like to sleep in. 

The first two days, we visited doctors.  All reports came back clear and the one Doctor that he used to see every six months, graduated him to yearly visits. 


This is the Doctor who “saved” Duane’s life.  He refuses to take credit, though.  He credits it to God, which is true of course, but I’m thankful that God has given Christian men like him the ability and knowledge to do what he does.

Duane’s family.  It’s a large tribe.  Lots of fun.  We were all together yesterday for Christmas dinner, including Duane’s grandma, two Aunts, and an Uncle and his family.  Full house.

Daune and his brothers – Phil, Harold, Jason, Duane, and Tim. 

Well it’s time for Duane’s mom, sister, and I to head to town to meet the men for lunch.  “Head to town.”  That’s so fun to say.  So countryish. 

All right, we’re heading to town.  Later.

    thank you, my dear, i did have a most wonderful christmas! the only sad part was that it wasn’t white, therefore you didn’t miss out on too much by being in texas. :]. i so love a white christmas…
