Thankfulness

Thanksgiving is a a special time to celebrate the love of family and to count your many blessings~

Our little grand daughter Keri Beth is 19 months old.





Our little great niece Maddy is almost 3 years old.  We love her like our grand daughter. 



















We feel so blessed to have these babes in our life. 



Keri Beth's sweet Mommy made this beautiful cake for our Thanksgiving table. (it was almost too pretty to cut - but we did - and it was wonderful!)
~~~
I try to count my blessings every day - not just at Thanksgiving - but today as we celebrate this day of thanks and thankfulness -I want to wish you all a wonderful and blessed start to the Holiday season. 

There are blessings to be found in the quiet little corners of our lives - not just in the most obvious and outward places.  My wish for you is that you find every little blessing and treasure it for the precious thing that it is~~

xoxo,
Vicki

Happy Thanksgiving. Your little people are so precious and they grow up so very fast. We spent an enjoyable day with family. I have been enjoying your trips so very much it makes me feel as though I am traveling right along with you. Take care Your Missouri Friend.

Vicki,
I'm late I know, but I wanted to come over & wish you a belated Happy Thanksgiving. What a Thanksgiving you had! Look at those precious babies. What a fun age they are. I miss mine being little like that. The holidays are pure magic in their eyes. And the cake your DIL made, wow!
Your Christmas nests are beautiful Vicki, & you have such a generous spirit. I know you'll sell out fast.

I was thinking of you and thought I should pay you a visit. I am glad I did, somehow I had missed this post and the next one! What cuties those two girlies are! They will be so much fun at Christmas! There is just something so magical about seeing the tree and decorations thru the eyes of a child. I hope you are well and having a few minutes to enjoy things. Merry Christmas, my friend.
