Thanksgiving is past, but I'm still grateful for all I have: family, friends, a warm dry home, my husband Paul, and that I'm actually going to recover from a bad case of bronchitis that I got while at an American Agri-Woman convention in Denver three weeks ago.
My convention roommate, Tiffany Marx from Rickreall, was an amazing nurse and got me through convention week with loving care, then Paul made me sit still while he cooked, made tea and medicated me through it all.
Bob and Lynda Schnekenburger went to daughter Megan and Scott Ciprian's house for Thanksgiving and their whole family was there, plus Scott's family. His mother, Jan Ciprian of Albany, was recently diagnosed with bone and lung cancer so it was an important event. The Schnekenburger's daughter, Chandra Chapman, loves her new job as a social service specialist at the Oregon Department of Human Services, Child Welfare in Eugene, where she now lives.
Wes and Carla Burbank went to a Thanksgiving brunch at son and daughter-in-law Dave and Suzanne Burbank's house, where the Burbanks and Kovashs heard the good news that they will have another great-grandchild in June.
Brennan and Callie Burbank will be welcoming a sibling for 1-year-old Annabelle on or near June 8.
Others enjoying the mouthwatering brunch menu, games, cards and conversation were Suzanne's sister Lorraine and Doug Odell, Victoria and Christina and their friend Steve Brame from Salem, son Derek and his high school friend Glen Nicol from Dallas who are both at OSU, cousins Steve and Marilyn McGettigan from Philomath, neighbor Judy Guida, and us, of course.
