Trip to Kilgore

Last Thursday we headed to Kilgore to spend the day with my grandparents. It was a beautiful day and the boys love playing in their big backyard. Cooper remembered hiding easter eggs the last time we were over there, so the boys asked to hunt easter eggs. Papa and I "hid" them for the boys and they ran around picking them up. They did this numerous times and it wore them out!

Showing off their stash. You can see in the picture how hard Papa and I hid the eggs. The funny thing was the boys would run right by some of the eggs because they had spotted some further out in the yard.

After we went back inside to warm up, Great Gramm found an old tea set and we decided to have a tea party! The boys loved pouring their "tea" in the cups and we only had to refill the teapot a thousand times! They had some crackers with their "tea".

They had some teddy bears join them at their party.

Concentrating hard so he wouldn't spill.

The boys played the rest of the afternoon. Here they are taking everyone's orders:

This picture was taken after everybody (including grandpappy) woke up from their naps. They all look like they are zoned out!

The boys look like they are having such a great time. My grandparents lived on the Magnolia Petroleum 'camp' when I was little. I have years of pictures and memories from their house in Kilgore in the late '50's. My daddy and granddaddy even petted Rudolph there on Christmas Eve when I was 5. I was so mad because they didn't make him wait on me. said...

Anne, sounds like someone loved you enough to provide the essentials for some truly wonderful childhood memories.


It's time for our recap of 2012!  This year has brought some major answer to prayers and we have seen the hand of God move in incredible...
