Thanksgiving 2010

Jacqueline made us this Thanksgiving card. She asked me what the card should be and I told her "our house". I mention that as you might have trouble being sure that is what you see. What is cool is that she wrote Ashton, Bob and Mom without asking us how to write them and I've never seen her write anything before other than her name (which this is not her best work with the "ne" bleeding onto a different line)

This year we had all our stuff packed away. I had honestly intended to skip Thanksgiving and go to Hawaii instead but alas we ended up not being able to swing that. So I broke down and decided to cook instead. The Turkey was gorgeous and the dinner was lovely. Suzie and Dad joined and it was a wonderful and relaxing time.

We also went to a birthday party for a friend of Jacqueline that had parrots.

Both girls had to do try-outs to join a new Gymnastics class. They are both beginners but are in different classes due to age. We have done different classes in the past but never really took to it. This time they both seem pretty enthusiastic about the opportunity.

We'll see how it goes. For now, it's a reliable thing to do on a rainy Thursday afternoon so that's good. My goal is for them each to learn a cartwheel. I've never been able to do one myself and I've always wished I had learned.
