I knew the month of December would whiz by with all the holiday festivities going on. The month started off with Greg’s parents taking us on a lovely trip to Wimberly, Texas. Once the twins are born, it’ll be difficult to go over there to visit Dhara’s bohemian great-grandmother, Granny Lanny. So, we decided that it would be best to see her sooner rather than later. The last time we went (last summer), Dhara was only 6.5 months old!
This time around we stayed in Uncle Phil’s amazing vacation home, Rim Rock Lodge, located in Texas hill country. It was definitely a cozy Texas Christmas sitting by fires, chatting about the days when Granny Lanny was a little girl on her dad’s cotton farm, eating tasty vittles provided by the men from their hunting expeditions, and delicious kolaches provided by Aunt Teri, yum!!! Dhara did get sick with an ear infection and fever for half of the trip, but nonetheless, it was a special time.
