It makes me proud that my children like to go on vacation together. Really, it does!
In the picture below are four of my seven children and their spouses. From left to right bottom is Sandy (the oldest), Erin (third from the youngest, and Maryalice (next to the youngest in our family and next to her is sweet DIL, Cindie. Top far right is son Michael and next to him right to left is Brock, Jimmy and Jeff. All of them in the photo have been married over 20 years. Great, huh? A reason to give thanks!
Had I gone out and chosen spouses for my children..it would have been these.
Some of the Grandchildren..home for the Holiday. Two from college and one from Australia. So many are in college right now..I think..don't quote me...four? :)
Sorry...I forget. :)
And then of course there was busy, busy, VERY busy Emily...sigh! I couldn't run fast enough to get a decent shot of that child..
One of these days...maybe, just maybe I can just say "sit down Sweetie...Grandma wants to take your pictures..and..
....she will just plunk right down! (who am I kidding!)
And then..of course there was FOOD! Here is only one of the four tables.
We always gather in a circle, holding hands and a prayer is said. Each of us says a few words as to why we are thankful this year. Needless to say, the circle was big!!
I hope your Thanksgiving was as nice as mine. If it wasn't ..there is always next year, I promise...and I never make promises lightly!
