My parents' living room at their new home. The couch & chair are new the rocker was my grandmothers and so was the organ in the back. This room feels so cozy!
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with lots of amazing food. Of course we missed our Coastie – FA Nephew two. He was boating somewhere in the Pacific Ocean at the time. That is just a weird concept. But thanks to his brother – we were able to have another reminder of how proud we are of him! It was fun to visit with Nephew one – his film life is just amazing. Are you following Ralph Smyth on Twitter (@ralphsmyth) or have him as a Facebook friend? That’s Nephew one’s boss – they are doing amazing things in the film industry. (Have you seen I love you Will Smith or The Man Who Never Cried ?)

It was great to have both our boys with us at Thanksgiving. I enjoy my boys – and their love for family is treasured. We also watched our cousins & the Mason Punchers play an incredibly close football game on the Friday of the Thanksgiving holidays. How fun it is to watch our cousins…..one is Jan’s grandson, Jan is Uncle Werner’s daughter, Uncle Werner was Grandpa Schmidt’s brother. The other is Uncle Kelly’s grandson – Kelly is Grandpa’s youngest brother. Kelly has a son – James Kelly who is married to Mona Lois. Even though JK is really Kathy’s (my mother in law) cousin – JK & ML are dear friends to Kerry & me (they are our age…. well a tad younger!). Wonder if that made any sense!
This weekend (Friday, December 9th) we will watch the Mason Punchers play Garrison in the State Semi-Final Game – Go Punchers!!!!!Always, May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. 2 Corinthians 13:14.
