I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We all have so much to be thankful for. I spent Thanksgiving at my daughter's house and we had such a good time together. We cooked the night before and got up early and cooked some more. We played Christmas music and talked about past Thanksgivings that we've had. I loved this special time together. She said that she will remember it always. This is us getting everything prepared. I told her I would be better prepared next year. lol I will get up an hour early and get out of my p.j.'s and put on some make up! She gets me every I'm putting this picture on here for her. lol The best part of the day was being able to have all of my children together in one place. I love them so much. They are my sweet blessings.

Christy loves picking at her brother Cole. She tries her best to keep him in line. lol Guess she will always be his 'mother hen'. He loves it though!

Of Course, Garrett has to act silly for the pictures...he better watch out...his sister will be after him next! I hope you all had a beautiful day together with your family and loved ones.

Hi Lee Laurie,
What beautiful Holiday memories made with your beautiful dear children. I love the pics. You are a doll in your pj's and no makeup. I was here doing the same while cooking early in the morning. Hair pulled back, sleeves rolled up and lots of preparing till time to shower and dress. All great fun with family.

Blessings to you my friend for a wonderful Christmas.

I am having a giveaway if you'd like to enter.
Hugs from Texas,
Celestina Marie

Thanks for visiting me, Lee Laurie! I think that it is the best part of the holidays to be able to spend time with family; slow down a bit and catch up, too. Isn't that always the way with pictures ~ my son always gets me with my mouth open telling him to hurry up and take the picture already!

You all look like brothers and sisters without a MOM in the mix! You are lovely as ever.

Beautiful my friend!

Lee Laurie ~ isn't fun to have the night before to share in the cooking! It IS so special. My mom lived so close that we never shared that for some reason ~ I loved that my kids spent the night!

btw: you looked terrific in the morning ~ don't change a thing!

Looks like you guys had a great Thanksgiving at your daughters...and you look amazing without make're beautiful! :) We had 12 here for dinner, so I didn't get to stay in my pj's, but I sure would have loved to!~ lol BUT, it was the perfect day even if I wasn't in pj's. :)

Aw, such a beautiful family. It takes me forever to get myself dressed and made up on THanksgiving - I just love to sit around in my PJ's.

Hey, did you know that we are naming our baby boy Cole?? It's the one name the whole family agreed on.
