Thanksgiving 2005

Happy Thanksgiving!!! (a day late) The Leaf family did something on Thanksgiving that they haven't done for a long time: stay home and goof off. It was a very nice day for us. We slept in. Some friends from church brought us Thanksgiving dinner (Thank you Kruegers). Watched football and cartoons. Then Grandma and Grandpa Leaf stopped by to say hi and have a piece of pie. After the grandparents left, Kerstin's Uncle, Uncle's girlfriend, and Cousin came over. The girls showed us their own rendition of "One More Angel in Heaven" from "Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat". Then all the ladies had to show off their new holiday scarves.

We hope everyone else had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We especially send our thoughts and prayers to those who were confined to hospitals, and to all the families that could not spend this day together.

God Bless You All.

GREAT pictures! Sounds like a wonderful Thanksgiving. Grandpa Leaf looks just like he did when he worked at the PO and I lived in Kearney! Good luck next week--should be a breeze for you.

Always in our thoughts and prayers.

Hi Kerstin!
I'm glad you had a fun Thanksgiving, it looks like you have lots to be thankful for, family, friends,food and fun are such blessings. I had a good Thanksgiving too. My uncle and cousins came over too and we danced to old records that my mom listened to when she was little- not Joseph and the Amazing Techincolor Dreamcoat because all of us at my house are pretty tired of that music by now, I'm sure your dad can relate! It sure does get stuck in your head easily! I'm glad you liked the show it was a lot of fun to have you there. I hope your date with the anchor goes well. It will be a bummer to have to go back to the hospital but I know you can do it and will make it through along with everything else. Love and prayers,

Looks like the perfect holiday. :) And I'd HOPE your dad got that performance on video! Kenna was dancing with the Rockettes during the Macy's parade on TV so I know she'd love to see yours! We'll be thinking special thoughts for you all while you're back in Omaha this week, and waiting to hear great news when you get home. Love, love, love you! xoxoxoxo

Happy Thanksgiving to the Leaf Family! Kerstin, I'm so happy to hear that you're doing so well. Annie and Jeff, your family continues to be in my thoughts and prayers at this time! I'm so glad that you all are having a great time with your family and I'm sure all will continue to go well.

As your date with the 'anchor' approaches, I wanted to send a note to let you know we will be thinking of you and hope that it gives Kerstin an extra boost of strength and toughness! Hope all goes well.

Be Strong!
