Yvonne Weir worked in Nacogdoches last week. Brenda Allen, of Yantis, met her and spent Thursday through Saturday with her. In their free time, they enjoyed shopping, eating, and going to a play.
Powell and Sherry Vickery celebrated their anniversary on Valentine’s Day, with a lunch of chicken nuggets for Grandparents’ Day at Travis Elementary School in Sulphur Springs.
We went to the North Hopkins gym on Friday night to watch our grandson, Kenden Joslin play basketball, and then our great-grandsons Rylan, Brailon, and Slaiden Joslin spent the night with us. Our granddaughter Jaidyn Joslin, visited with us that evening, too. We went to Yantis the next morning to watch Jaidyn play Little Dribblers basketball.
On Tuesday evening, Chip and I took Tiffany, Kenden, and Jaidyn out to eat for Valentine’s Day.
