No, I haven't died...

It seems ages since I've posted and there's a reason for that. I'm up in Keller with 3/5ths of the grandchildren and 2/3 of the children. For someone who hates math, I got rather technical about those figures I suppose. But we left last Friday to come up north and it's been go-go-go ever since. I'm catching my breath right now as youngest grand, Mirai, sleeps peacefully in the guest nursery. We have her basically for the day (yeah!) while Jenjer, who has worked two night shifts in a row, is home hopefully peacefully sleeping as well after getting off between 7 and 8am today...yucky hours.

Thanksgiving was a blur - dinner for 12 at 1pm yesterday followed by a massive kitchen clean-up, dessert and the ladies going to see the matinee of the movie "Australia" (which by the way is FANTASTIC! Go, no, RUN to see it! I think it's a great date movie and plan to take Mike back to see it so will get to see it twice! Whoo-hoo!). By 8:30pm yesterday, I was "dead woman walking" and had a hard time staying up till what was an EARLY bedtime for me between 10 and 11pm. Tim and Megan's crew were in George West celebrating with Megan's folks. We plan to drop by Austin on the way home to Houston and get a quick visit in.

So the week has been and will continue to be full of FAMILY which is as it should be!

Just wanted to "check in" and show of the fancy-dancy blog banner Jennifer put together for me as well.

Hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving (all you Americans) and let you know that indeed I am still in the land of the living even if my blog would indicate otherwise. More updates and PHOTOS later...

Hi Cheri,
thanks for the movie tip. If we go and see that movie it will be the second movie since Jonathan was born 2 and a half years ago!

Yes, your banner is just wonderful.
Sounds like a great time you are having with your family.

Wonderful header! I love it. Maybe I should hire Jenny. :)

It was great seeing you guys last night.
