We had my brother Neilsen who because of a broken leg received while surfing stayed with us a whole week instead of letting the waves dictate his stay. My sister Margo, her husband Al & their 3 kids, my brother Aaron, his wife Jasine & their 3 kiddos & finally my brother Adam & his new wife Anna who were napping when we took this pic. Then of course there was Glenn, I & our 3, Jeannette & her 3 and my parents.
We didn't do too much other than eat (so many good cooks!), talk & play games. We did spend one morning at the park to let the kids and dogs run around, and we also drove around looking at properties for when my sister Margo moves here (insert a million happy faces!!!!!!) but other than that it was low key and relaxing. Although we didn't do anything exciting I can say that just being together is the best thing ever. I love this group so much!!!!!!!
Life is good here. The kids are back at school, I am back at school (which explains the Thanksgiving post in January) Brutus is good and Glenn is keeping very busy with his new job and tax season that is starting.
Still haven't gotten my infusion for my arthritis which is extremely painful and frustrating but I am trying to be patient while the kinks are being sorted out. In the meantime I am happy & grateful for all I do have, which is a lot! It is nice to have a Holiday centered on thankfulness, but truly I am grateful every single day for the abundance of blessing so graciously given to me by a kind, patient, forgiving and loving Heavenly Father.
