Thanksgiving...Family... So much to be thankful for..

Family..
I have been truly blessed to be a part of this family..
I have 2 sister and 2 brothers and we all love each other very much..
we were raised being taught that FAMILY is what matters..
We love each other, unconditionally..
We make sure that we spend time together and that the kids,
love their cousins and will continue to carry on this life of Family Love.. Us girls are just nuts.. we love having fun, love being together...
We know the value of Quality time..and making memories...

Of course the guys, relate in a mean game of Horse Shoes..
they had a blast,, young men verses the elders..lol...
who taught them a few things..lol...

And Uncle Roger was the winner in the fishing event..lol...
We teased him about making one fish stick out of his catch..

After lots of GOOD food,, and pumpkin pie and all the horsing around we did..
it was bon fire time. Time to unwind and take it all in, and just enjoy being Family.....
Loved it...


Thank you God for blessing me with this family,, and for putting it in our hearts to not let this blessed going unnoticed, and letting us teach that love of family to our children and their children..
Mom and Dad,, the only thing that would of made it better would of been if you would of been there,, the ones who taught us this love of family.. but you are with your heavenly father, and Im sure you had a great Thanksgiving as well... Love Ya.. Miss Ya..

Awesome pictures and what a true blessing...one I don't share,(siblings that are close) but I do have my family and I am trying to pass that on to them and break the chains of division that were passed down to me...each generation has a chance to move forward.

Your header is great!!! I can't figure out how to do all of that

So glad to see you had such a wonderful Thanksgiving...so did we!!

Your parents would be tickled that you all have carried on in a way as if they were still there. Some families fail at that after the parents go. I'm missing my daddy so much! Holidays sure are different now.

Karen, What a great heritage your parents have given you and your family, What a beautiful time it looks like you all had. I love bon fires, and when our grandchildren come they always have to have one. Blessings to you, and thank you for always leaving me such sweet notes on my blog.
Hugs, Sue
