Well, we have a big day ahead of us tomorrow! We get to have Thanksgiving one day earlier than everyone at home and I am so excited about it! This will be my first Thanksgiving cooking the whole meal and I am nervous but very confident in my skills. Just think... If I can make an entire Thanksgiving dinner in this very ill-equipped apartment there should be no trouble for the future holidays to come! We have invited about 15 people to join in on the American holiday. Yet, none of them are Americans so it should be interesting. While I am cooking a turkey, stuffing, potatoes, dessert, rolls and a few salads they are also bringing something so it should be a nice mix of Thanksgiving our way as well as an Aussie BBQ! I'll do my best to take pictures!

Brett and I have been working a lot which is great because it is allowing our bank account to grow before we get back on the road. We have exactly one month until Christmas and about one month on our lease here in Port Douglas. Ahh, I don't even want to think about it. I will be so sad to leave this town. However, we are excited to get on the road and pick up Casey, from CA, on January 7th in Brisbane. He will than spent about 16 days traveling down the coast with us to Sydney. He flies out January 24th!

As many of you know, Brett got accepted to nursing school in Denver so it looks as if we are headed somewhere new yet again! School starts May 10th, so we are planning to be home sometime around the middle of April to see everyone, get packed up again and drive over to our new home in CO! We are really excited and it will be fun to be in another new city for 12 months!

We hope everyone at home is happy, healthy and excited for the holiday season! We miss everyone and love everyone!

love, B and K

Can't wait to see the photos of the mixed-up Thanksgiving. It should be fun. K8, thanks for putting those nature photos on facebook. They are pretty amazing. Thanks for all of the good info. Life is pretty normal around here. We're all going to Jeff's and Julia's for Thanksgiving dinner. We hope Ann, Mike, Lucas and Jordan come down but it may not fit Jordan's schedule. Lots of love, Dad & Mom
