Texans in Telluride: Video Highlights from the Kramers' Holiday Party
Buzz-area families celebrated the holidays in Telluride with Don and Ilene Kramer, who have hosted a holiday party in their lovely Telluride home for the past five years. The guest list keeps growing as more and more Houstonians also have second homes there.
Michael and I were delighted to be included this year. Prepping for their party is a family affair and starts in Houston. Ilene buys brined kosher turkeys at Belden's. Don drives from Houston with their dog Chondi and all the supplies. Their kids Nikki, Isabel, Jackie, and Rafaela and fiance Michael Imiak helped Don fry the turkeys Cajun style Christmas Day.

After dinner, guests gathered in the cozy living room to hear Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary perform. Don met Peter last year while skiing and they formed an instant bond. Peter is very passionate about passing the importance of folk songs on to the younger generation. Everyone loved singing along to "Blowin' in the Wind," "If I Had a Hammer," and, of course, "Puff the Magic Dragon."
Other Houston guests enjoying the special night were Susan and Mike Plank and kids Jared and Kendall, Jack and Shushana Castle, Laura and Vineet Bhatia and kids Nina and Neil, Robert and Beth Rivera and sons Baz and Zeke, Brittney and Max Tribble, Joseph and Melissa Navone and kids Abby, Gabriel, Ella, Riva Collins and her kids Jeffrey, Sophia and Sam, Ivette and Brad Mcneill and their kids Thomas, Brad and Claire, Abby and Mark Salter and their kids Erin, Carly and Kevin.
