Every year my father's side of the family has a big Christmas party at my Aunt Mary Cay's home in Marshall. It is always a lot of fun, and although we don't always make it, this year we got to go!! It was the weekend of the 18th, which also was the day that our friend Brian defended his PhD in Houston. Since Mitch was off that day, we went to that, too. It was quite the whirlwind weekend! Friday, we went to Houston for the PhD defense, then drove to Carthage for the party, which was Saturday night. I sang in the choir Christmas program on Sunday, so we had to drive back to Temple Saturday night after the party. Crazy times!
While we were in Houston, Mitch went to see Brian defend and I took the kids to Hermann park. It was a little strange being so close to the hospital and never going in. Strange in a good way, though!
Logan and Myra had a blast at the park!
Then we headed out to East Texas for some family Christmas fun!
We had so much fun with family we don't get to see very often! Thanks to Mary Cay for hosting this horde yet again.
