Christmas in Austin, 2014 - Around the House and Yard


Christmas in Austin, 2014
Around the House and Yard


Random photos taken in first couple of days of our visit to the Rathsack's: Arrion, Ben, Alex, Kaylee; Annette and Larry there, as well. Some posted to Facebook, some not. Check them out! ;-)


Ben and Arrion set up a badmitten net for Kaylee, in particular. Here, Annette is volleying with Kaylee. Different people enjoyed the fun at different times. The weather was in the 50s, 60s and one day in the 70s. Much fun!


Ben and Larry especially enjoyed one of the football games...  ;-)


Kaylee was working on a Lego Dolphin Cruiser, from scratch, working from the directions. Annette helped lay our the pieces, but she put them all together by herself. Fun to watch it grow. Finished in photo below.


Lots of games played, with different groups, different times, among the eight of us. Card games, board games, all variety of games.


Allison "owed" Arrion a birthday present, so we brought a copy of "Pioneer Girl" for her. We all enjoy the "Little House" series, of course, and this is the annotated autobiography of Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Kaylee finished the Cruiser...


Coming back from one of my walks, the lights were on, at the Rathsack home!


Merry Christmas!
