Thanksgiving and birthday pics.

We did the big cousins picture with moderate success.  Funny the little ones were the easiest ones to work with.  It was so great to see everyone together.  Lots of food, talking, and memory making. I was sooooo good to take my video camera AND the still one.  Kevin's first Thanksgiving will be well documented.

We had two boys with birthdays on Sat.  F was 15 and Kevin was 3....F was gracious to share the spotlight with our little one.  It also helped that Kevin adored all his cousins and is so incredibly cute....everyone wanted to carry him and help with him....nice.   We also went shopping on black is truly unbelievable what lenghts to get a bargin.  My sister and I aren't that deteremined to get the bargins.  It is almost as fun to people watch.  The registers in the electronic dept went down in Toys r..WOW what a show to watch there.  The employee who was to keep us out of the electronics was super nice, but really firm.  I don't think they payed him enough money to put up with angry shoppers.  I think I heard a few remarks about his mother, but I can't be sure. 

Rememember you can click on the pics to make them larger.

Happy birthday, Kevin! We had a birthday party for Lily's big sister, Emily. She turned 8 today. What a special time to have a birthday. Thanking God for the blessings.
Lily still asks to see her buddy and loves his pictures.

Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
