Last weekend Donnie and Maxine McBee got to see and visit with their newest great-grandson, Wyatt Diahel and his parents Brandy and Joe Diahel and sister, Kaleigh of Cypress.

Donna Stuckey spent several days last week visiting here with her parents and Deena Owen from Kingwood also visited.

Lots of our folk here in town traveling to San Antonio this past Friday night to see Milano play football. I’m sure it was worth the distance to travel to see Milano win. They will play again on Friday.

On Saturday, I joined Chris and Kelly, Kristi and Kendall on the trip to Huffman to see the Bryan St. Joseph Eagle football team play. Kathy Turner also joined us at the game. Kathy teaches at St. Joseph. Connelly and Cameron Cooper are members of the team. Bad news—they lost by one point.

Now we will be attending soccer games. Connelly, Cameron and Kendall will be playing. Kendall is also playing basketball and we family members do make those games also. Gause Junior High girls and boys basketball games are getting underway. They will have games here on Thursday, Dec. 5 against Brazos Christian.

Renee’ Vinton, Lisa Koenig and Kari Thompson participated in the Santa’s Wonderland 5K run on Saturday evening in College Station. The three dressed in costume—Lisa a snowman, Kari and Renee as Christmas trees. Lisa won ”Most Christmas Spirited” and first place overall in the women’s division. I saw their picture on Kristi’s phone. Cute costumes.

This run benefited the Brazos Valley Food Bank. Each participant was asked to donate a food item. There was 1,000 participants and $6,000 was donated to the Brazos Valley Food Bank.

These young mothers love to do the running thing and they participate in so many charitable running activities.

I have never been to the Santa’s Wonderland, but did see the beautiful lights there Saturday night coming in from the football game.
