We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had a nice quiet Thanksgiving at home... We had the usual: turkey and all the trimmings, pies, cookies, football, and a turkey induced nap... :) We even put up all the Christmas decorations - we were in such a festive mood! You can see our other Thanksgiving pictures (and other recent photos) at: http://photos.yahoo.com/bednerfamily
The week before that, we spent a wonderful weekend in Connecticut where Dave surprised Elena with a 30th Birthday Party! The family was all there, Elena was totally surprised and had a wonderful time. It was so great to see everyone (in person and on video) and spend time. It was one of her BEST Birthdays on record. Thanks so much to everyone involved who made it so special!
We all ready for Christmas... Our shopping is pretty much done, and Derek keeps talking about seeing Santa. Grandma Barbara promises a visit with him when we come up for Christmas - we can't wait to see his face!
Jimmy is doing great, and is being evaluated for being put in a 4th grade Math class. Look at the big brain on Jimmy! He is missing his friends that are moving away (across the base), so we have been shuttling him back and forth. His social calendar is fuller than ours! Sheesh! He had a nice 9th Birthday - he is 9 going on 19! :)
Dave puts on TSgt on Wednesday, Dec 1st - we are SOOO PROUD! We will be sure and post pictures of us "pinning" his rank on.
All in all the Fall has been pretty busy for us! We will find out where the USAF is sending us soon - hopefully somewhere nice!
We just wanted to give a quick update on us - Happy Holidays everyone!
The Bedner Family
