It was brought to my attention that my most recent background was depressing. Gray outside AND a gray blog was depressing. So if I added to anyones gloom I am so sorry. Here is some cheery red, I hope it brightens your day. Love to all, Julie

Hi everyone! I hope everyone has a great family filled day. I would love to see pictures and hear any stories you wish to share about your Thanksgiving. We are having dinner here with whoever chooses to attend. I cooking today as much as I can and then in the wee hours of tomorrow morning I will be getting the stuffing and turkey ready for roasting. Smell good in here now almost can't wait until tomorrow. I count each and every one of you as a blessing and want to wish you all a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. Cheers, Julie

I am soo sore. I just had yet again another surgery this past Wednesday the 18th. They did a scar revision on all my facial and neck scar tissue. They also re-broke my jaw to allign it better, and inserted another 2 plates. The total count now is 9 plates and 34 screws. My jaw is wired shut yet again for another 6 weeks and is a lot tighter this time. It truly is a pure-liquid diet this time. This unfortunately means no delicious turkey dinner or no christmas food from the Reindl Family Feast. Well, I just thought I would keep you updated!

Oh happy day everybody! Glad to hear so many fun stories from those that went to Rachel's Bat Mitzvah! It really sounds like everybody had a great time. I want to say thanks to Meaghan for posting some great pictures on Facebook. Meaghan, you did a great job! I'd hire you as a photo journalist any day!! Especially with that great assistant Joey you had. Definitely an eye for unique perspectives! ;)
Over the weekend I designed a set of Jewelry that made me think of you Aunt Diane! This year your Minnesota Vikings are really making a statement - or two or three... none of which my Chicago Bears seem to be able to even understand. LOL So here's a link to my post on my jewelry blog
Aunt Diane I really wanted you to know I was thinking about you and looking forward to seeing you at Christmas! BTW - did everybody see our Christmas Countdown over to the right??? :) Just something fun to get you in the spirit. Keep your eyes on the Blog over the next couple of weeks so we can collectively work out our scrumptious dinner menu for our Christmas Feast!
As other people upload their Florida pictures, please feel free to post them on here... especially the ones that involve palm trees, sand, sunshine... none of which we are seeing here in WI today. LOL
Much love to all! Hope you have a great evening!

I hope you enjoy your Birthday and all smiles your family puts on your face each day. You are a dedicated and giving Mom and I am so proud of you. Savor the memories of the romantic and delicious dinner you and Brian had last night, he is a great guy. It is so hard to believe that 23 years ago today I had my baby. Boy does time fly and I am not 23 years older only you are. hahaha
Happy Birthday, Love, Mom

Liam getting his fair share of Trick or Treat kisses... and let me tell you, he didn't give any of us special "tricks." ;)
I got a few really cute pictures while Grandma & Grandpa Reindl were down too that I wanted to add to the Happy Halloween wishes.
Ashlynn was making a small pot of "Oatmeal."
Everything is oatmeal to Ashlynn... and she was telling Uncle Greg her special recipe.
Then she fed to to Grandpa & Greg for lunch....
well, not really. But it did look that way!
Hope everybody has a safe trip down to Jacksonville next week!
Take lots of photos and share them here on the blog when you get back!
Love to all!
