Happy Thanksgiving

Juergen went into work late so he could have breakfast with me. He remembered it was thanks giving and he wanted to do something special for me. Clearly that man is at the top of my list of what I am thankful for! My kids are also on my list. Each one of them has grown emotionally, socially, spiritually and in knowledge. I am sorry I can not be with my family back home but so glad my parents and brother each traveled here to see us this year! It's been a very full year. So much life pressed into such a short amount of time!

I'm just finishing Sarah Palins book, Going Rogue. I liked her before the book, but I like her even more now. I especially like her support of disabled kids and their families. She really could just sit down and shut up, who needs the stress...but she is very special. I don't know if she will ever be our President, but she will have influence. Sarah's approval rating is up to 47% and Obamas rating is actually down to 46%...could be interesting!

The above photos are from a family night. Juergen played guitar while I painted with the kids. Thomas is trying to figure out how to work the rubik cube. He is getting pretty good at it.

We didn't eat turkey today but I did cook. I made some noodles with good olive oil, olives, feta cheese and onions and beef. It was pretty good. I'm sure my brother Rick would have loved it. I feel like Sarah Palin when I say, here is a shout out to my family in Oregon. Happy Thanks Giving! I wish I was there but I send you my love!!!
