Texas Family Reunion

For 45 consecutive years the McLendon family(Scott's step-dad's family) has hosted a family reunion! Every year over 100 people attend. Even if you aren't actually a part of the family by the end of the weekend you feel like one!This years reunion was held in Longview, Texas. For the annual auction I finally finished my giant granny square afghan!

Scott helped out his step-dad with the auction!

I wanted that Elvis blanket so bad!!

Cole and I showing off our auction goods...

I tried winning one of Cole's crochet bags but lost. I am hoping he will show me how to make one the next time he comes to visit!

Of course us girls did a little shopping...

and found some silly hats.

And I learned that my husband was expecting??

Nope...he was just trying to show up the ladies in the family that are! Congrats to Keith and Kerry for the little one on the way! We are so excited and can't wait to meet him!!

It was so great to see everyone and catch up. Thank you for making Two Poots feel right at home!

XOXO
