Ten Things of Thankful: Christmas Edition

Even though the hosts of the Ten Things of Thankful are officially on break until January, our faithful leader, Lizzie, wisely decided to continue the hop. So, with "Muppet Christmas Carol" playing in the background, I'm taking a minute to share some of my Thankfuls.





1.  I'm thankful that Christmas Eve found my home filled with all of my children and grandchildren, along with my daughter-in-law,  and my granddaughters' dad.  The last time all of my children were together was before any of the grandchildren had been born.  

2.  I'm thankful that my children indulge my desires for family photos.  They put up with my insistence that we take "one more" photo again and again.

Yes, I am the reason we needed to take another shot.
 3.  I'm thankful my kids enjoy their nieces.



 4.  I'm thankful my grandchildren have parents who are involved in their lives. 

 5.  I'm thankful for a sweet little baby granddaughter.



6.  I'm thankful for her big sister.



7.  I'm thankful for the 4-leggers in the household.  We even got to puppy-sit for a few days this past week.  Drexel had fun having Julius stay with us. 


8.  I'm thankful for my children's willingness to carol to our neighbors in 4-part harmony.

9.  I'm thankful for neighborhoods that hang Christmas lights for the enjoyment of all.

10.  I'm thankful for the birth of Jesus Christ, who changed the world.



Merry Christmas to all!

  1. …love that, even though everyone, "...put up with my insistence that we take "one more" photo again and again." the second photo has a 'blur of motion' that, no doubt, is an accurate representation of your home on the holidays!

    have a good Christmas from all of us at the Wakefield Doctrine!

  2. Very beautiful.

    I'm glad that I can be glad for you, genuinely, for all of these things. And that I'm in a good enough place today that this has been alright for me to see, and to appreciate.

  5. Those family photos are perfect. I'm glad they indulge you. I always forget to get big group shots. Glad you had such a nice evening with all of your beautiful family.
