Terrific Texas Trip

I have the best time every single time I go home to Houston. I have the CRAZIEST/most diverse family...the only race we are missing is Asian. Seriously. Some of the highlights of the trip:
* Playing around in Granny's pastures with Michael and Devon
* Shopping with my madre
* Getting to FINALLY go over to my Granny and Papa's farm...I love it there
* My cousin Nikki surprising me!!
* Eating at La Cabana with Edy, Ricky, Madre, Nikki, and Isabella, wayy too many laughs at that dinner
* Having a bunch of my family come over for a little partay
* Hanging out with my sis, my cousin, Chelsea, and my dad..and of course eating Frenchy's Fried Chicken
*Eating one of Dave's Famous Burgers. BEST EVER.
* Sharing a bed with my mom AND Nikki for 2 nights :)

Goofin off with Devon.
Since Devon was deathly afraid of the cows, Michael and I tried to herd the cows towards him :)

Devon doesn't have any siblings so I think his great uncle, Michael has put it on his shoulders to be the older siblings Devon never had by putting his face by cow poop.
Love this kid.

K so Devon is a little mentally handicapped about remembering the names of or identifying family members by pictures...even the ones he sees often. Here is a perfect example. Edy pointed to the picture on the right and Devon had NO clue who Nikki and I were. Edy said, "Devon, one of these people is the only other half black person in this family besides you." And then he got it. Nikki was still a mystery lol.
The infamous pink and turquoise zebra printed socks. Devon didn't take these off for two full days, and was tortured because of them.
My cousin, Blaine, his girlfriend, Jennifer, and their baby, Angel at dinner at our grandparent's house.
My Grandmommy always hooks us up with the food. She made all this stuff from scratch. Chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, rolls, gravy, and black eyed peas.
My lovely grandparents, Norma and Billy Joe
My BFF Liz came over to visit!
The only boy I will share a bed with besides Matt :)

These pictures are perfect! I laughed looking at them and ALL the fun we had. =) That was a awesome visit we just needed MATT along for more laughs. Im with Edy on everyone being here, that will be awesome. Our Sunday dinners will be SWEET with all the gang. We were telling the missionaries last night about Devon almost being face planted into the cow poo and to see the picture made me LOL. Love and miss the TAYLORS mucho!!!!!!!!!! Madre
