I hope y'all had a good thanksgiving.

         We drove in to Cedar Park where Arik & Jenny live with their kids, Sofia and Beket.  Adam and Leigha with their kids Tate & Emery have been visiting since earlier this week.  About eleven we went to Bonnie's (Jenny's mother).  Bonnie's brother, Kieth, was there already.  Heather and Mike soon arrived with Mike's sister.  Everybody had prepared different parts of the meal so that no one person had to provide it all.  Arik deep-fat fried the turkey which only took about an hour, including the prep time and the preheating the oil.  In the evening, after Heather, Mike and his sister had left, a fire was built in the firepit and marshmallows were roasted.
         I think it was around eight when Arik, Jenny, Sofia, Beket, Adam, Leigha, Tate, Emery, Ella and I returned to Cedar Park where we all spent the night.  After sleeping arrangements were figured out, the kids were put to bed and the adults got a chance to visit.  I shared some of the family history that I've discovered on
        There aren't any pictures to share because I left my smartphone in the truck during the whole day.
      Today (Friday) Arik and Jenny are at work.  Adam and Leigha went for a hike with Heather.  Ella and I are watching the four grandkids.  So far, the kids have tattooed themselves with washable markers and played different animal characters.  They currently have barricaded themselves behind a chair in the living room.  I don't know if it is a fort, shelter or prison.  The point is ... they are playing well together.
