I count my family as the greatest blessing that God has given me.

Last year's Thanksgiving wishes from them to me.

Elijah makes his first card for his Gramma.
Elijah's palm, forefinger and thumb...Rachel's little finger is the yellow, green and red feather because he was done cooperating.

After lunch last year we made this video for the TX girls.

This card arrived yesterday.

And next year, it seems there will be a new member of the family.


  1. Ah, BEAUTIFUL! The first clip almost made me cry, look at those cute faces.;) They all look so alike! And that little cutie barely reaching the table, so adorable...;)
    Congratulations on the new addition next year.;))

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family, what a lovely post.
