Steve and Sandra Slay Timko of Frisco, Charles and Cheryl Slay Timko of Livingston and Tristan and Cindy Carmicheal and daughters Kelsie, Jaden and Madison of Aubrey spent the weekend here at the home place where Sandra and Cheryl grew up. They came especially at this time for the children to participate the annual Gause Community Easter Egg Hunt, that they remember from their childhood. It was good to see the families.

Bill and Luz Almond, Myranda Almond and son Jake spent the Easter weekend in Beaumont with relatives enjoying visiting, an Easter Egg hunt for the kids and a birthday party for Jake for his first birthday.
Spending Easter Sunday with Wayne and I were family members: Desiree’ and Allen Reese, Lucy and Lily of Thorndale, Kay and Claude Lagrone of Milano, Renee’ and Jerry Vinton, Seth, Calla and Isaac, Ray Cass, and our children, Kristi and Leah and grandson Jaxon and granddaughter Kendall.
Kelly and Chris Cooper, Connelly and Cameron went to Lake Conroe following church and visited with Dan and Maxine Cooper and other family members.
Grandson Jaxon was so excited Sunday morning. I heard him tell one of his cousins “I’m a stepdad.” Wondering why?
His lamb had twins, a boy and a girl, early Easter morning. Every couple of hours Kristi had to take him out to the pens and see if all was going well.
We really had a nice Sunday afternoon with our loved ones as I’m sure you that gathered with family and friends did also.
