Robert and Yvonne Weir’s family got together for Christmas, with Destri, Eben, and Nico arriving on Sunday, as well as Dustin, Natalie, and Maria, and Sarah and Lucas. They had snacks and a bonfire and Sarah and Lucas opened their gifts before they left. The next day Dacy, Mike, Elise, and Eli came and they had fajitas and all the trimmings, followed by their gift exchange. Yvonne adds, “My children and grandchildren and I attended the candlelight service at the Tira Methodist Church.”
Kenden Joslin celebrated his 17th birthday at Chuck E. Cheese in Rockwall on Thursday, December 27th. Helping him celebrate were his parents Malcolm Joslin and Tiffany Vaughn, his siblings Morgan and Jaidyn Joslin, his girlfriend Whitney and her 4-year-old sister Rhalie, and myself (his grandmother).
Chip and I took our daughter Tiffany, granddaughter Jaidyn, and great-
granddaughter Dixie to Piney Shores Resort on Lake Conroe on Friday, December 28th. We went to The Ice Rink at The Woodlands that afternoon and I took pictures of the others skating. We went back to the resort and swam in the indoor pool that night. We took Dixie back to her home in Sour Lake on Saturday morning, and then, after driving home, our family went to the home of Tim and Lori Vaughn for a family get-together in honor or Jamie, Anna, and Emma Vaughn, of Georgia. It had been a few years since they were last in Texas. Jamie is the son of Jim and Sandra Vaughn.
James and Vickie Longino hosted a small group at their home for a New Year’s Eve party. Guests were Eddie and Karen Northcutt, Greg and Karon Adams, Mike and Susan Smith, Brad and Janiene Fain, and Chip and myself. We enjoyed eating, visiting, and playing games.
I’m having trouble getting news reports recently. I’m sure there were many other family gatherings during the holidays. I hope to be able to report more next time.
