Here's our family 2009 Thanksgiving picture

We got back from Washington D.C. yesterday where we celebrated Thanksgiving with our kids.  It was first a time of catching up and visiting.  There was plenty of eating and there was sightseeing.

Our tradition for the past four years has been to gather at our son Justin's apartment in the southeast portion of our nation's Capital.  

On Thanksgiving morning, we participated in the Thanksgiving Day Trot for Hunger where our son, daughter, her husband ran and where super-wife and I walked.  It was a gray, foggy morning where we had memorials in the background and where thousands of people participated.

We saw the movie, The Blind Side, at a theater complex in China Town.  It's an inspiring story where Sandra Bullock plays a character who shows the difference one person can make in the life of another individual.  It's based on a true story.

I thank God for my family, each one of them.  And we give special thanks for a family-member in waiting who is still in utero and who will be our first grandchild. 

My family, the six of us
