ahhh… The months before Christmas when those nice little daughters stay nice and well mannered. How I miss you. To remind me of how wonderful they were before Christmas joy mutated them into whiney muffins, I share these photos.
This is what happens to Maddie after a fun excursion to see the Ben Franklin exhibit at the HMNS. She wore herself out playing with the fan-chair (yes, I know it probably has a name courtesy of Mr. Franklin but I’m drawing a blank).
This is how we spent Black Friday – riding through the East Texas woods from Palestine (pronounced Pal-ah-steen) to Rusk on a 1920’s train pulled by an old diesel engine.
My first of many bad attempts at posing the girls for a Christmas photo at the Gaylord Texan hotel in Grapevine, Texas. The girls were much more interested in the miniature train that was traveling through the top of the tree than taking photos.
