This weekend my nephew and niece-in-law flew in from Arkansas to go to the UT game. We all met to have lunch at Los Cucos. (I love their green sauce and the stuffed avocado looked yummy.) It is wonderful when (almost) everyone is together - we missed you Erin!
Josh and Jamie are such a sweet couple. By the way, congrats on your promotion, Josh! We are proud of you and glad that you will be able to take care of us in our old age!

We got out the crystal ball and predicted whether Katie will have a baby brother or sister. I think we were about half and half on that. Amy sure looks like pregnancy agrees with her. She's a sweet mommy.

We got to see Megan and Jeremy for the first time since they made their big announcement. Doesn't Megan have that certain "glow?" They look really well since they didn't get home from the game until 3:30 a.m. I learned that Matt's El Rancho stops serving at 11:00 p.m., but if you get there at 10:55, they can have your food on the table by 11:00! That's news you can use!

Thunder and Lightening, aka Judy and Tony, also look really well considering they got in at 1:00 a.m. and were teaching Sunday School this morning assisted by Josh and Jamie. I also learned that the Whataburger in Giddings starts serving taquitos at 11:00 p.m. More good info. And to think...we just got a Hershey's bar from Buckees. (As a side note, when I was in Buckees a lady came up to me and asked if this town was named Giddings. I told her that she was indeed in Giddings and she said that her sister-in-law told her that these were the cleanest restrooms in the state. I don't know if I would go that far...)
We were happy that MeMaw and PePaw were able to see everyone, too.

Of course, we were all charmed by Katie, especially the way she drinks tea from a straw (you had to have been there!) and the way she points and waves. She really is a princess! She is such a happy baby. How our lives have been blessed by our children and are continuing to be blessed by granchildren.

Behold, children are a gift of the Lord; The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one's youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; They shall not be ashamed when they speak with their enemies in the gate.
Psalms 127:3-5
Every good thing bestowed and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation, or shifting shadow. James 1:17
