Our son, Delayne Vaughn, was here from Waco for the Mother’s Day weekend. He made my favorite caramel pies. On Sunday, Chip cooked lunch for our family, including his ever-popular homemade yeast rolls. His mother, Grace, joined us, along with our daughter, Tiffany, and our grandsons, Morgan, Kenden, and Jaidyn. Tiffany took Delayne, Jaidyn, and me to the Choral Society presentation in Sulphur Springs that afternoon, and Grace went to celebrate Mother’s Day with John and Linda Vaughn and their family. Landon, Laiken, Rylan, Brailon, and Slaiden were with Laiken’s mother, Leigh Ann, and her family for the holiday.
Tiffany Vaughn spent this past weekend with her friend, Stephanie Weaver, in McKinney over the weekend. They enjoyed visiting, shopping, eating out, and, most of all, attending a women’s conference on Saturday.
Jim and Sandra Vaughn, of Broken Bow, Oklahoma, spent a few days in our area visiting with family last week. They had lunch with us on Sunday and Linda Ellen and Grace Vaughn, joined us, too.
