We made it through with flying colors here at the Inn. A wedding and two parties, including my daughter, Cat’s, kept the old Inn busy and full of Christmas spirit and family reunions. Pecan pies kept cropping up around the kitchen, just when we thought we had them all subdued and donated to those short of pie. Empty wine glasses lie undiscovered in the potted plants and porches, but by spring all will be found.
The house seems to like a party; the more the merrier. The first floor double parlor, emptying into the dining room on one end and the entry way on the other, holds the group like a warm handshake. One family gathering tipped the 100 count, with everyone in the house at one time it seemed, but the band kept them moving, and the food and drink never ran out, so a good time was had by all.
Thanks to those families and friends who chose the Inn for their holiday gatherings. We welcome you back each year.
Happy New Year to all,
