My wife and I took a few days off and journeyed to one of our favorite places: The Hill country of Texas. We stayed in a cottage outside of Gruene that was once a stagecoach stop:

We went shopping in Gruene which had some very nice decorations up for the season. We ate at the Gristmill, a favorite place in the area.

Murphy, our dog, approved of the antique bathroom furniture we found in our cottage.

We found a wonderful little holiday light display in a village called Wimberly. We couldn't resist a few pictures:

The Hill Country is a wonderful quiet place to spend a few days. We also shopped at the Christmas art bazaars in Austin and paid a trip to Bourne. Although the weather was a bit cold it only added to our holiday experience.

Christmas Holiday Program

Everyone had a great time at the Holiday program. Each grade level was represented. I played the Grinch in the 3rd and 4th grade part of the program. Have a Grinchy holiday! See you in 2009.
