What are you grateful for?
Who are you thankful for?
How have you been unexpectedly blessed?
When have you taken the opportunity to give to someone else?
Write these things on a name place card or use your scrapbook pages, scissors and hole punch to hand-make some gratitude cards then hang them on your Christmas tree beginning November 1. Another great idea is to place them in a photo holder or simply on the door/window trims around your home. Then at your Thanksgiving dinner pull them down and have family member(s) read them aloud. It is great way to stay focused in all the hustle and bustle of the season leading to Christmas.

So in the last post i shared what we all were up to, but i failed to show you our most recent fam pic! Of course i have to say thanks to the Anglens one more time, they rock! We went to the session with the intent of just getting the boys photos done, but there was time to throw us in a few, i’m not sure this particular photo was planned, but they always catch is being us! Check out their website, http://www.anglenphotography.com, we have never been disappointed with their work, it is well worth the investment to have them take our photos this year!
Thanks for stopping in!

Happy Birthday America! I wish you all things pure and just this year! I pray for freedom to continue to ring in our homeland, that Love will prevail, that hope and faith will burn with passion as great or greater than what or forefathers envisioned. I pray we won’t forget our awesome God who went before us to bless us with this special gift we have of freedom. I love you God and i love you America! Happy Birthday!!!
