Evelyn (Arnold) Horne moved into our community recently. She reports that her daughters, Stacy Green from Sugar Land and Alisa Ottley and Saylor from Dallas, came for lunch and a visit on Friday the 8th.
Kim and Lee Beck had a nice visit with their “almost 2-year-old” granddaughter, Demi, and parents, Derek & Michelle Dailey. Demi got to see Santa and all the sights at Heritage Park. Kim adds, “Lee is selling his bass boat if you know someone who needs a super Christmas present.”
Yvonne and Wesley Weir joined Dacy, Elise and Eli Campbell and Destri and Nicolaas Esterhuyse for the Old City Dallas Candlelight Tour. Yvonne reports, “We had a lovely time. The weather was great .The Weir family including Dakota and Sarah and Lucas enjoyed the community Christmas party Saturday night.”
I went to Tyler on Friday afternoon and did a little Christmas shopping. Our family enjoyed celebrating Christmas with our neighbors at the Tira Christmas Party on Saturday night.
A good group gathered for the party and enjoyed a delicious meal and time of visiting. Following the meal, Sherry Smiddy read the Christmas story and then the young people led everyone in singing Christmas Carols prior to the arrival of Santa Claus. The kids enjoyed telling him their Christmas wishes.
Chip and I attended our Sunday School Christmas party on Monday night at The Cottage event center. It was very nice and we enjoyed a potluck meal, playing games, and exchanging gifts.
On Tuesday evening, Tiffany, Jaidyn, and I went to our Women on Mission meeting at Kathie Wells’ home, where we enjoyed finger foods and an ornament exchange.
Chip and I picked up his mother, Grace Vaughn, and joined Tiffany and her family for Thanksgiving/Christmas lunch at Posey Baptist Church. Grace spent the afternoon with us, and then went to have dinner with John and Linda Vaughn and their family.
