Christmas in New Braunfels

The day after Christmas we drove to New Braunfels to see David’s family.  It was a quick trip but we still made time to do a lot of the things we love doing there.

We explored around Papa & Grandmother’s house.

Papa’s pet rock collection was a big hit with all of the kids.

Papa & sweet Epiphany.

Papa & Grandmother live in a house that was built in the 1800s within walking distance of the river.  We love going for walks in the neighborhood to look at all of the old houses.

David’s mom has two sisters, one of which is a twin sister who has 9 children.

Now they are starting to marry and have children of their own.  Every time we get together it seems like there is a new family member present!  We spent an evening at their house and had a delicious meal.  Needless to say…there is always someone to talk to!

Three of the wives. (Krista, Elizabeth, and me)

All of the Neely’s grandchildren and their wives/husband minus Eric & Jodi.  (Zach, Katy, Daniel, Neely, David, John, Joanna, Luke, Daniel, Susan, me, Krista, Elizabeth, Carla, Becca, and Leta)  Becca was the flower girl in our wedding when she was 4!

The great-grandchildren minus AJ.  (Andrew, Peter, Elliott, Epiphany, Anastasia, Evangeline, Analisa, and Eliana)
