Under a Texas sky...

Julia, our budding photographer, took this photo of me in my parents' front yard this morning. After we took Chad's mom to the airport, we were on our way to Baytown for our first visit since we moved in August. Our first stop was at the home of Meagan, Julia's best Baytown friend, where the two shared a joyful reunion.

Julia is sleeping over at Meagan's tonight. From Meagan's house, we drove by Kim and Mary Lou's house and they happened to be outside so we stopped and talked for a while. Then we went on to Baytown Seafood, where we met our friend and Chad's former co-worker Bill Ehlig and his son and daughter-in-law, Eric and Paula. Then back to Houston. We're going to back to Baytown tomorrow to have lunch with friends, hang out with friends, close a bank account, hang out with more friends and go to church. Then we're going to Starbucks to hang out yet some more with yet more friends. We'll pick up Julia somewhere in there and head back to my parents' house.

NOTE to Baytown people: We were going to go to the Sneads' house after church, but now we're moving the party to Starbucks on Garth. The freestanding one, not the one inside Target. As much as I would like to go Targeting.

    Ahhh. There is nothing to compare to Texas!

    Sadly, I live in Louisiana now. Its a grandchildren thing. I adopted Texas as my home in 1978 and I will go to heaven loving Texas.

    Happy New Year!

    Whenever you publish the book that you're working on, you should put this on the cover!

    It was so great to visit with you and Chad. It didn't even seem like you'd been gone.
    And I agree about the is a great picture for a book cover.

    The blue sky would look much better if you had on a bright red Razorback Hog Hat. Just wanted to remind you that you are missed in Arkansas. PS - Don't listen to all the propaganda from your parents about moving back closer. They don't really mean it!

    After a week with Jenna I think they may be glad for us to be in LR. Jenna would wear at a marathon runner. She's non-stop all day.
