Elwood & the Stars

Oh yes, we had good seats! 


We sat beside the 'Dallas Glass Banger'  

And yes, that is Elwood reacting to Jamie Benn's goal! 

Of course he is wearing his Habs jersey.  


The tickets included a fabulous meal.
And then we waited for the elevator with the Star's Cheerleader.

Cousins Sleepover

We all love cousins sleepover. 

Pizza for supper

Then some painting

And reading. 

And of course a movie with popcorn and root beer floats!




Following the morning pillow fight we had 
waffles, sausage and bacon. YUM
All eaten at Grampa's newly made table.

Ama & Avi

So glad my folks are back home after
 their individual times in the hospital.

Snow Days

Four inches of snow fell through the night.  
Everything was shut down.


So beautiful! 


Some of the kids visited in the afternoon.

And down in Dallas

The earlier snowfall...

And at Karin's

South Padre Island

Al & Emma picked us up in Corpus Christie 
and we drove to South Padre Island.

The sand castles were amazing.


The raging gulf while we had a beautiful walk on the sand.

A fabulous walk out on the laguna on their incredible boardwalks. 

We saw so many different kinds of birds ~ great blue herons, great egrets, 
lesser bitterns, teals and flamingos plus crabs and foliage.

A great, relaxing walk.

This sea turtle is huge and enjoyed putting on a show for us. 

Why did he turn right when we took the picture.   

Thankfully this bad boy was stuffed!


Such a good time with great friends!

Jody Gress


So fun to have Jody & Steve here for Sunday lunch.  
A wonderful afternoon reminiscing! 
Lucy was sick so Eraina had to miss and
 Aj was asleep so Chandra was home with him. 

Glad Chandra made it later in the afternoon.

Karin & Ryan were skiing in Colorado. :)
