Hello Everyone!! Iknow that it is a shock to hear from me, but it has taken forever for me to learn all the ins and outs of this thing, and we have had problems with the computer. But let me tell you, I really want to keep going. It is really good for me to learn new things. Let me tell you---I absolutely LOVE reading everyones blogs and also their comments. I have a tendency to feel a little funny doing this because you are all young and sprite and I am old and slow!!! But maybe all of this keeps me feeling younger and makes me think back about my younger years and when I had little children. It also keeps me in touch with those of you that I am not around very much. Anyway, thanks for listening.

This was quite a Thanksgiving. We had one at the beginning of the month ( I think you saw it on a few of the blogs of other people) with the Warthen family and it was at Tammy's house. She pulled it all together. I think there were 17-20 of us. It was quite a house full of people, but her place can fit us all. Then on the real day of Thanksgiving, we had all our immediate family here except for Jeremy's and Erik's family. It turned out really nice. Everyone was so helpful to me because I don't seem to last very long. I am still trying to build up my energy. We all had assignments , so that made it very easy. I made a really, really good homemade pumpkin pie--with the Costco sticker on it!!!! With a pie that big and good, with a price of only $5.99, I am not going to make it myself. After dinner was over and we visited for a while, everyone had to leave because they had other family dinners to go to. They must have goten pretty full.

I thought I had the table decorated quite nicely, and then Megan came and decided she needed to make it look better. One side of the table had nine napkins on it and the other had four!! Then the opposite side of the table had about three napkins and nine cups!! She was so proud of herself. It was a real mess, but it made it for fun. We all just passed everything around to make it even!!!

I love you all, and I hope your day was as wonderful as mine.

Love, Gramma Jello (oops--we forgot to have jello for dinner!)

Gramma's first time out with her hair done and make up on!

Tammy had a Thanksgiving-type dinner for all the Towerys and McKights yesterday at her house. I was able to get myself together for the event, and had a great time.

More stuff and pictures will follow. It was great to go somewhere!

Love you all.
