Thanksgiving Blessings

Google image: Norman Rockwell
Thanksgiving is a time to count your blessings.  As I gaze at this Norman Rockwell image, everything looks so perfect.  A family gathered together with smiles on their faces.  I don't know about you but my life isn't all that perfect.

Not all families can get together.  Not all families get along.  But there are still many blessings that we can focus our attention on even when life isn't perfect.

Our class of three year old children were so excited to make turkeys out of cardboard paper and paper plates.

I got a chuckle out of Ava's too large uniform with the boots.  I think she spent the night at her dad's house.  :)

I love the little hands and feet of the children.  They are too cute!

And I'm amazed at the positions they are able to maintain and ...be comfortable.

My niece Kristin is 16 weeks pregnant.  She and her husband Kevin are so excited about their little jellybean.  Doesn't she look so cute?
