Happy

I had not intended to fall off the 'post-every-day' regimen.  But I seriously underestimated the amount of time I would have during my Thanksgiving break.  Since arriving by train in San Diego, I have been trailing behind my daughter and have realized how busy her life is.  I can't keep up.  However, I have finished my main part of the Thanksgiving Day dinner (homemade cranberry sauce) and am now sitting resting before returning to the kitchen to start on the family famous Grandma Rylander Rolls.  Obviously, there hasn't been much time to post on my blog or read other blogs since last Thursday night.

All the children but one (along with the New Boy) are here in San Diego.  The girls took off to buy a meat thermometer, the boys are playing a game, the dog is wagging her tail incessantly, and the cat is huddled into her hidey-hole.  The Professor and I are sitting and smiling.  We are happy.

Happy Thanksgiving Dear Willow to you and your family. So happy you are with your family. Due to busyness with the ministry we are celebrating tomorrow. So I took some time to write a nice long blog post. How on earth do people blog every day? If I make it three times per week, I'm doing well. ♥

Oh, I think we could write a book together. I watch my son...and wonder how he ever does it and I get dizzy, but he's such an awesome Father.
But like your place...one's always planning, one's running to pick up last minute things and like you say...we just look at each other and smile and say, "This is FAMILY!"
Have a wonderful weekend with everyone.
