Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

I normally like to keep my blog to decorating and junk treasures but today with it being Thanksgiving I decided to do a more personal post.

First let me say I am so thankful for all the wonderful new blog friends I have met and come to know over these past few months.  Your beautiful blogs inspire me and your wonderful feedback and comments on my blog are so appreciated.  May you, your family and friends all have a blessed and wonderful day today.

My post is about what I truly feel blessed to have in my life and that is my family.  We will all be together today to celebrate this wonderful holiday .  That is a miracle in itself.  We are a family of firefighters and nurses so getting everyone on the same schedule for a holiday is a blessing itself.  So I am truly grateful today to have my family all together.

I wanted to share some pictures of my beautiful family.

Oh My who are these "young" people!!!! My hubby and I married 32 years ago.  Where does the time go.

Here we are 32 years later after a fun vacation where we went  back to our Honeymoon spot.  Ohhhh look at the tans!!!!!!

My beautiful daughter Jennifer and her little daughter Abby.

My beautiful other daughter Kimmie.

My son in law Tim and daughter Jen and little Abby.

Just when you think you could not love anything more than your children they give you a grandchild.  Love of my life.

She's my little angel.

Sorry to indulge but I love this picture of her. Captures her sweet personality.

As I think about all things I am thankful for today I feel so blessed for my family.


  1. I love the photo on the far left. It looks so professional. Looking at your husband's wedding suit, he must have known that there would be a lot of white in your future. A man with a vision!!
