Thankful for Family

Brenna surprised me by coming home on Tuesday before Thanksgiving. I expected her on Thursday but she finished up her classes early and walked in carrying pizza for dinner. I was just so happy to see her. I had just learned to knit so showed her what I knew so far...(which is not much!) I did just finish my first scarf, though, so I guess I'm in crafting mode for our cold Florida winter season which lasts about three weeks.

This year, we celebrated Thanksgiving at my sister's house. Tami always has the most delicious feast and this year was no exception. Best of all, my mom was there and Brenna and Chelsea were home from college. So here are some of the posed pictures of our family. I'm so thankful that we live close enough to celebrate holidays with them.

And this was only Thursday....Then we headed up to Atlanta to do more celebrating with some of our unschooling friends. More about that coming up.......

So glad you were celebrating together!! It does mean much.

Great to hear the knitting news! Maybe we'll see each other soon and get to sit together to do in Portland area or San Diego?

Logan's standing on a box next to Brenna, it seems.

Not only is he standing on a box, he also is emitting a strange low sound when he speaks that makes me wonder who is living in our house.

Hey Gail,

It's fun to check up on you every so often! Glad to hear all is well at your end. I can't believe those babies of yours are all grown up. We'll be heading to Austin for Christmas. We had our first snow fall today so it finally seems like winter here in New Mexico.
