Ryan had to work, but stopped in briefly. He requested a pecan pie this year. I decided I like it too.
Jared should be related to Steve N. They both love cream. Steve, do you like peas too? That's Jared's favorite non-sweet food. I remember when John was little he asked me for some "PLAIN" pie. We had about ten choices, as usual, so I tried to find out which he wanted. He said no to each as I suggested it. I finally figured out he wanted a bowl of cream.
By the way, in case you are wondering, I have plenty to be thankful for. David and I have commented to each other many times over the years that we are truly blessed in so many ways it's amazing. I look at the wonderful children we have and the grand kids who are the best looking and smartest I know. (Notice I didn't say best behaved. I would have, except today they made me yell at them for throwing popcorn kernels all over the carpet and banging on the woodwork with my meatball maker.) I am so grateful they live here and I can see them all the time; that they are here to spill on my carpet and write on my walls. What if they lived far away and I could only see them once in a while? See how blessed I am? And I love how David helped me drill holes in all the shower blocks for Super Thursday/Saturday. He spent more on drill bits than the blocks cost, but it was ok because the women in our ward need the time together to make stuff. And he went out and got Chinese food for dinner because I had no time to cook. I had been looking for clear glass plates for days so the ladies could do glass etching and cutting out felt for the nativity puppets. I have said it before: He is irreplaceable. He doesn't care that our Christmas tree is still not up.
