This year was Thanksgiving together. About every 3 years we end up eating turkey together and for that we are thankful. Stephen has this new fancy camera so he was all photo snazzy and for that we were also thankful….or at least for the most part!
We had Thanksgiving in Little Rock at our great aunt’s house. It was wonderful to have the original four together for a short bit. Sadly, it is rare for us to all 4 be together, and especially with Mawmaw. We are a busy people with lots of life to live. Sarah and Zach are brother and sister, and belong to our mother’s sister, Janet. We all grew up together in Fort Smith. Sarah and I are 11 months apart and Zach is the baby of our group…his wife is having their first baby this coming spring. Much to be thankful for!
Pioneer Woman ain’t got nothing on AJ! My BLT cheese ball fronting like a turkey. Not Pinterest worthy, but hey, I attempted it. Stephen found great humor in my turkey and provoked me to pose with it and if you know me…it doesn’t take much provoking! He knows me well. I am most thankful for a brother-in-law who knows… and still laughs at me with the love of the Lord!
If this doesn’t make you smile, then you don’t have a pulse. I am so thankful for a family that hugs. Whether you want a hug or not, you are getting one. This is Julie being hugged. If you don’t have a grandmother who smiles like that when she hugs you, then come see ours, she will take you in. I am most thankful for a family who doesn’t quit loving.
Laughing cousins are the best cousins. Anna and Sarah’s oldest, Grace, are the same age. They have been bonded since birth. They see each other very seldom but pick up right where they left off. I am so thankful that these two can make special memories together just like we did, and in the basement of Aunt Suzy’s house, just like we did. It made my heart so happy to take this picture of them literally squealing with laughter. I am so thankful for these special times and how they evoke precious memories in my heart.
Playing Bible games on the ipad before the great feast. I am SO thankful for a family who loves Jesus and how they help direct my baby toward Him. It is such a joy!
I am MOST thankful for this turkey. I love this man of mine. He is such a wonderful compliment to me, a #1 daddy, and a great leader for our home. He is awfully cute too.
