and a very merry Christmas it was.
Last weekend we met up with the our Taylor gang at Holly Lake, Tx.
Del(the matriarch) chose an awesome house for us to stay in and it was perfect for our family.
The downstairs room was huge and accommodated us nicely.
Get this, it had an air hockey table that converted into a pool table that converted into a poker table.
We're in business.
Our weekend together was way to short, as always.
We had no plans, but had a great time visiting, playing games, opening gifts, cooking, eating, playing football, listening to siblings play guitar and sing, watching a movie, watching football and making fun of eachother.
in this one, Kim is making fun of her hubby. perfect.
