Happy Thanksgiving!

"The life of a family is filled with beautiful moments: rest, meals together, walks in the park or the countryside, visits to grandparents or to a sick person… But if love is missing, joy is missing, nothing is fun. Jesus gives always gives us that love: he is its endless source. In the sacrament he gives us his word and he gives us the bread of life, so that our joy may be complete."                                                                          --Pope Francis October 2013 

We certainly feel blessed this year.

for snuggly new babies . . . 

and family . . . 

(thanks to Nana, who's cooking today, and Grandad,
who's wrangling kids so we'll have Thanksgiving!
and the two extra little girls in there are
Emma and Skylar, our Iowa cousins.)

and for all of you who make this blogging thing so much fun.

May God bless you and all your celebrations today.

  1. Such a precious family! Thank you for sharing your life with us and congratulations on baby Lulu! *hugs*

  2. Congratulations on your beautiful baby girl! And Happy Thanksgiving to your lovely family. Thank you for your witness!

  3. Oh my goodness, look at those girls' outfits! Your whole family is perfectly color coordinated. Very beautiful! Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Matching dresses for all 3 girls--so stinking cute! Also, I never noticed it before, but your family has a great naming style (probably noticed it as I have been a bit preoccupied in trying to come up with possible names for our new baby, expected arrival in January. I identified our preferred "style" long before I figured out a specific name we actually wanted!)
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. I love the girls dresses! So cute! Thank you for your contribution to the Catholic blogging community. Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. Happy Thanksgiving! Beautiful family pic!

  7. A family photo complete with coordinated outfits just two days after baby is born! I'm in awe!! Our #5 is nearly a year old and I don't think we have a single photo of all of us together. : /

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  8. Congratulations and a happy time growing together! :)

  9. Nice job on the family portrait....and everyone is looking pleasantly in the same direction and everything--it's like a Thanksgiving miracle, at least it would be for my family :) And the smocked Thanksgiving dresses--precious!

  10. Congrats on your beautiful new edition, Kendra. November babies are the best babies, I think. :) God bless you and your family and Happy Thanksgiving!

We don't always have to agree, where's the fun in that? But no name calling or speculating about what people "really" think or mean.
