 Happy New Year - 2024

Rick and I spent the first two weeks of 2024 in Fredericksburg. We love to camp there. We didn't try to do too much but we did take several drives, and we made our traditional stop at the Grist Mill in Gruene for a great chicken fried steak meal.

Back-to-Back State Champs!

Once again as the saying goes....."Teams to Remember Play in December!" After six weeks of playoff games including getting to play and ending up at AT&T Stadium, we can say we are the State 3A D2 Champs AGAIN! We won that title yesterday afternoon with a perfect season record. What a ride! 

Jonah received "First Team Guard" as well as "All-Texomaland Offensive Line" and "Academic All-District" awards. 

We are so happy that Jonah will get another ring, and sis, Glory, will get one as well as a student trainer.

 Football, Thanksgiving and Marlow's Birthday

Our Tigers had a playoff game on Friday in Arlington. We are so fortunate to still be winning. Our goal --- back-to-back STATE titles! All the family met up there at the stadium to watch a terrific game. Jared and Jenna came on to the house for the weekend. 

Justin worked on Thanksgiving Day. Keelie and the kids went to have a meal with him at the station. We had our family Thanksgiving on Sunday. We also had a party for Marlow's 8th birthday so the cousins could celebrate with her. So blessed!

Camping and California

Rick and I were able to squeeze in five days of camping at Ray Roberts the first of the month. We sure have missed getting to use the RV as much for various reasons (surgeries, games, etc. )  But we do hope to rectify this somewhat next year. 

Then last week Tim, Rick and I went to see Marci in California. We left on a Saturday and came back on Wednesday. This schedule prevented us from missing Jonah's football game. (His games have been priority since it is his senior year!) Marci took us to some of our favorite spots again which included Coronado Island, Camp Pendleton, a couple of favorite piers, and the beach. A repeat favorite that the guys wanted to do again was John Wayne's burial site and his boat the "Wild Goose. She was a great host and provided most of our meals on the back patio which we love! Unfortunately, Donnie was out of town.
