The day ended with another gorgeous display of color.



Meeting My Cousins Halfway

Saturday, December 27 –

We traveled to Halfway, Texas today to visit family and meet my cousin to pick up his daughter so she could come home with us for a few days. It’s so fun to catch up with everyone. I really enjoyed seeing several cousins and their families that I hadn’t seen in a long, long time.

Lubbock Sky

Friday, December 26 –

Shots of the Lubbock sky that I took as we left town. After all, I guess Northfield doesn’t have a monopoly on beautiful sky photos.

…and as an extra bonus photo, here’s another pretty sunset over Matador.


Christmas at the Pringle’s (almost)

For the last few years we have enjoyed our Christmas get-togethers at Misty and Kevin’s. Again this year we were looking forward to it. However, at the last minute (due to unforeseen plumbing issues) we had to move the party to mom’s house.

It was as fun as ever. Lots of food, family and love.
