Happy Thanksgiving

We spent Thanksgiving with Kevin's cousins. We were at his cousin, Brett's house. They just moved in a week ago and their house is beautiful. In the picture below is Debbie (in the red), Mary (in the black), and the back of Kathy's head. All Kevin's cousins. Yes, he has a large family.

Jay is Kevin's CRAZY cousin, he is the one video taping. Kathy, his wife is next to him.
Brett is next to Kathy.

Boys and their toys.........

Jay making BIG biscuits loaded with butter. Kevin LOVED them!

Becca....I mean Miss Sheehan

Becca taught my class Origami today.
She was a little nervous at first, but she had the doc cam and wireless microphone, so she was all set.

This is a good picture of the doc cam. You can see on the screen in the front of the room what she is doing at the back of the room.

My class loved it and actually told her she was going to fast.
As you can see, she got a little sassy towards the end.
I was obviously bothering her with the picture taking.

Lazy Sunday

I am working on grades and Kevin is in bed, sick.

Becca is sitting outside with the dogs. She said she is acting like she is on a deserted island with just water, crackers, and dogfood. Our dogs are so good, they just sit there with her.

Becca and Izzy loved the snow! Izzy cried at the door to go back outside.
We got quite a bit of snow but it should all melt and warm up tomorrow (high 50's).

Now what?

I think the hardest thing about coming home from Japan is the slow paced life.  I know I love it but it is so hard when you feel like you are running full speed ahead and suddenly you stop and change directions. 

Luckily for me, I didn't have to go to school this week.  We are off track right now and I have this week off.   Then again it might have been nice to stay busy and return to school.  I have enjoyed sleeping in and catching up on laundry.  (Kevin somehow thought it was all done- he didn't see the 2 full baskets in the laundry room- imagine that!)  I told him next time I am going to stay at a hotel until the laundry is finished. 

Not much going on here except, SNOW!  I will take a picture as soon as there is snow on the ground.  Probably in the morning.  

Becca is reading The Tales of Despereaux- it is coming to theaters on Christmas day.  It is a wonderful story and I am sure it will be a great movie.  

We had family and friends over on Saturday, everyone watched B while I was gone.  I made Rebecca's famous Chicken Enchiladas.  They were tasty.  Everyone loved them.  I gave everyone a calligraphy picture I made in my calligraphy class in Japan.  It made it easier for me to leave my precious little daughter, knowing she was wanted in so many different places.  
Thanks Amanda, Kurt, Brittany, James, Doris, Margaret, and Richard!
