JEAN WISHES HAPPY THANKSGIVING
We also really got Marilyn on her Birthday this year. Michael and I went to the library to use one of their computers. To pick out the cake picture, he went through a lot of pictures on the computer of all sorts of Happy Birthday photos. When we saw that cake, I told Michael, that was the one.
The morning of her Birthday, I made the cake to look exactly like that one in the picture except for the leaf. I had no fake leaves and I didn't think I should put a real one from the yard on the cake. The post and later the cake was really a shock for Marilyn.
My Mother is having Thanksgiving Dinner over at her house this year. I was suppose to, but with the wedding coming up, she said she would do it. She said this is the last year. Like David's Mother, she says this every year, but somehow she or David's Mother have it.
So glad Ruth has chosen to finally have a name. We thank you all for giving names. It was a lot of fun at this end, too. Then, she decided to use her real name - Ruth. I, myself, always liked that name and I see people on New York State of Mind did too. We asked Thomas which he was going to come up with to top name choosing. He said he is done.
Thomas and Ruth's house is almost done for them to move into when they marry. They need some more furniture and farm equipment. No, we are mot moving the farm equipment in the house. David said they don't need most of the farm equipment to the spring, so worry about the house now. Thomas and David have made some furniture that Ruth doesn't know about. They want to surprise her when they move in.
I have Thomas wedding suit all made. Susan is working on Katie and her dresses. I am making new suits for Michael and Edward to wear at the wedding - they both need new ones. Susan is going to try making one for her Father and David Jr. I am keeping an eye on her in case she needs help, but she seems to be doing find on her own.
Elmer told me to ad that Emma, Bishop Eli's wife has agreed to put a post on here. We don't know exactly when, but it is coming. She will tell what it is like being a Bishop's wife. I think you will like her. She has the same sense of humor Elmer, Anna and Bishop Eli have.
Oh, I almost forgot. Thomas and Ruth are getting married on December 15th. Yes, Marilyn is invited. They wanted to get married December 24th, but Bishop Joseph, said he couldn't do it that day, so they settled on the 15th. There is so much to do, but so little time. My Mother said not to worry as it all gets done and the wedding will be beautiful. Mom has experience, she should know.
Grandfather Albert and Grandmother Olive are coming on Amtrak to be here for the wedding and will stay until Christmas. Unless someone else gets married at Christmas time up here, it will be their last Christmas up here. They said they don't want to come up with all the snow and ice. (What snow and ice?) Anyway, if we want to see them at Christmas, we know where they live in Florida.
Jean, David and Family
