We had a super Thanksgiving with about 26 attending. Everyone brought food and shared in helping and serving each other. After we ate, Dad read a story called the Thanksgiving Bowl to the children. We had heard it one the radion and thought it was great! What a blessing to have some of our children and for those from afar who called and shared their spirit with us ...Dad, Todd, & Amy.

Turkey Preparation

This year, Malcolm prepared the turkey for baking. I was in the wings helping with some ideas and with chopping some veggies for dressing. He did an admirable job...first time around. We are waiting for the yummy results!!

Yesterday, Amanda, Tyler and their children came over for a visit. Mason found and owned the wheelchair and yelled if anyone went near the chair. It was a hoot and fun for us but not for Mom and Dad.

Sutter Buttes

Malcolm took this beautiful picture of the Sutter Buttes the other night just at sunset. We love this view from our living room window so we are sharing with you!

Calvin & Adon

Calvin and Adon came for a visit today and had a ball trying out my wheelchair. They figured out the turns, backwards and ride sharing was fun watching them learn to drive!

Elder Weston - Return with Honor

On Saturday, November 15, 2008 our eldest grandchild, Elder Alex Weston returned from the New Jersey, Morristown, Spanish Mission. This is at the passenger waiting area of the Oakland Airport with Mom, Mauri, Elder Weston (he would be reasled on Sunay), Brother Miles, and the happy Grandpa.

Dad, Mike, Elder Weston and Brother, Miles at Oakland Airport. Mike had flown to New Jersey to pick up Alex

Happy Grandpa with Elder Weston. We are disappointed that Grandma could not be with us...Patsy was really looking forward to this reunion, but unfortunately on Thursday had broken her leg. These pictures and Alex's love for his grandma will have to suffice for now.

Patsy's Big Break! (It's her turn to be babied!)

Yesterday, November 13 while Patsy was gassing up the car, she slipped and broke her leg. (OUCH). We didn't know it was broken at the time so it was iced and wrapped. This morning the leg was in pain...we went to ER, X-Rays were taken, and the determination of a Distal Fracture of the right Fibula. After a painful placing of her foot in the proper alignment, a split soft cast was applied and here we are. Follow up will occur at our health plan in Martinez.

We have moved Patsy's office to a more suitable place, and, as you can see, she hasn't missed a beat!

Enrichment Meeting

Today we had an Enrichment Meeting for all the ladies at Church. We were all making some gifts for Christmas. There were cards, gift wrap and vinyl letter on ceramic tiles. There were many sayings, but I chose family. It was so fun, but took quite a lot of time to complete - well worth it though! Below is the one I completed for our home.

Malcolm was encouraged to apply for an appointment on the Planning Commission in Live Oak. He filled out the paper work, submitted it and attended the City Council Meeting last night. There were four applicants who presented themselves - when they concluded, Malcolm was appointed to the Commission. Today he had his swearing in and is taking a couple of courses that are required. I am so pleased and think he will be an asset as he has had quite a lot of experience working with cities and personnel in different agencies. This opportunity will be good, as he has the time and interest to be helpful in our community.

California Election

Malcolm and I did an absentee ballot yesterday and delivered it to the Registrar of voters. It is nice to have time to study and fill it out at home so there is no rush. We are thankful to live in a free country and do hope the people and propositions voted on will be positive for us all.
