So what has happened since I last sat down and finished an entry Barry is recovering nicely, we have had a few set backs but he is doing good.
Celia: that's right she made it out of Portland and came down for a great visit, and a job interview. Yes you read that correctly the plan is for Celia to be down here no later than Presidents weekend.... not a drive that I am looking forward in participating in (it is long!) but I am excited about the end result.
Originally she was just coming down for a quick holiday visit. 4 days but we squeezed a lot into those four days.
and then just a quickly as she arrived..... she was gone... but not for long.
Sammie: Sammie did come down for a great Thanksgiving dinner with Gledhill and Indian Hill Lane. And then she was gone.... back up to Davis for a short 3 weeks... but they were a very busy 3 weeks finals, packing and the return of "Just a Friend Rodney" who has officially been upgraded to "Boyfriend Rodney"...who has been in the Netherlands for a semester, but now he's back and Sam wanted to be there for his arrival. Finals were over on the 11th and they drove down on the 12th which really made Shomers night.... because he just loves Rodney. But It was a short gathering because Sam was gone again .... on the 14th let's be real she was only here for the the 13th because by 6:30 a.m. the morning of the 14th she was on her way to New York and then yes you guessed it ..... off to Israel!
Bubbie asked her "Why are you going to Israel this time?" and Sam said "Because I can!!!!"
now for those of you who have been listening to the news Sam has said that they have had some of their activities altered because of the Gaza bombing but on the whole they are doing great and there is no danger.
Morgan: didn't come out for winter break......and she was missed.... so what is she up to...she is getting ready to be an ADULT that's right in just 1 month I can't believe it. Oh yeah she will graduate High School in June!
So Ash and Shomer have had a busy couple days since that last post, mostly getting ready for her trip to Israel. Yes there are two of them there at the same time but again I am ahead of myself.

I had made all the little people these cute funky little scarf/hood/pocket things
and then we had the infamous.... Leslie Slut Sweaters
The whole evening was great fun... especially when we got down to adult games. It was Calli's first year as an adult so Bubbie showed her what to do. How to do the white elephant and then what to do with the gift?
Calli did pretty good for the first time... Morgan you better ask questions cause next year your an adult....
Samantha on the other hand is in Israel (yes I know when isn't she in Israel) and she had Barry as her person to buy a gift for... so this is what she gave him and t if you need to know more... I guess you will have to ask.
but when the evening was done .....we were ready for bed.

And some of the cooking was still done alone (waiting for the arrival of Samantha and Ashleigh on Wed night) So I made the pies alone....
Barry and Shomer offered to help
But on Thursday it was different actually it was back to good old days
and I am thankful for all my helpers
To all my kitchen helpers
THANK YOU !!!
The only thing that would have made the day better would have been if Celia, Morgan and Nathan were there with us

But this year we had more big girls than little girls at our Thanksgiving table
so we did it a little different, we put Paige and Jello at our table (the big people) and gave Samantha (20), Calli (18) and Ashleigh (16) their own table and they were happy to be at what we will now call "The Big Girl Table" and it can be something that all the little girls aspire to.
I hope your tables were filled with big girls and little girls and lots and lots of love.
