We got to Texarkana around 5:00 on Christmas night. We opened MORE presents and had a great dinner. The kids really enjoyed being in Texarkana. Uncle Erick was there with his dog, Ellie. John Curtis couldn't get enough of her. In the mornings he would navigate his way past the chairs and couch cushions that had been set up to keep Ellie in the sun room where Erick was sleeping. He would go over to her and squeal with delight. Uncle Erick didn't get the sleep as late as he would have liked most mornings.
