Family Time


I am taking a short break from stamping and spending time with these lovely children.. My girls are all here for the holiday.. We will laugh, love and live in these precious moments.
Can you tell my son is spoiled rotten?

My sister recently sent this prayer to me and it really meant alot.. I don't get to see her often as we live 5 states apart but she is always there for me..

Dear Lord,
There are so many wonderful people I love and I ask Your  forgiveness and theirs-for not
letting them know all the times that I could how they're kept in my thoughts and prayers.

How the things that can seem so important each day really mean nothing at all
compared to the warmth and blessings we share in a visit, a letter, or a call. 

So please help me to remember there'll always be time to accomplish the things I must do, but the memories we make with the ones we love are the treasures that last

all life through....Emily Matthews.

Have a blessed holiday and spend lots of time with the ones you treasure..

  5. I thoroughly love your blog. Your cards are amazing. Your family is beautiful. Thank you for sharing the prayer from your sister. I really needed to hear those words. Through our blogs we just never know the full impact our words (or those of our family) may have. Thank you and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  24. Hi Dawn,
    Your children are beautiful, and of course, your son is handsome.
    I drove to my parent's house (across the state) to spend some time with them before the holidays start. So I am trying to live this out in my life also. I am glad you have time to be with all your family.
    Happy Thanksgiving!
    Hugs, Traci
