Well we are heading to Missouri for Christmas. We promised the kids & family we would come home. Our neighbors said they would watch our home while we are gone. They are such nice people. Hope the weather holds. We spent the night in McAlester, OK. Good motels are hard to find unless you want to spend an arm & leg.
We arrived at Paula's, & just sat back & relaxed for the rest of the day. We still have to finish up our Christmas shopping. So we get out with alot of crazy people trying to finish up last minute shopping.
Christmas morning we got up fairly early & everyone opens lots of presents. We can't believe how fast the grandkids are growing up. I think everyone got what they wanted! Everyone got ready & we all headed to church. After church we headed back to the house to eat breakfast & get things started for dinner, as it is Paula's turn to have the Cole's (Ben's family). We had lots of good food to eat & had a nice visit with all of them. Well now it's time to head into Hermann & go see Mom & the rest of the family and of course eat some more. Everyone had a nice visit.
Well after visiting for a couple more days, it is now time to head back to Texas. We spend the night in McKinny, which is a little north of Dallas. There was a he** of a storm with lots of rain, couldn't see anything. Tornado warnings out for most of Texas.
We arrive back here Dec. 30th, its good to be back home & in our own bed.
