A Christmas Photo Shoot…Part 1


Can I tell you that I love this family to pieces…


I love to see the mother look at the camera…with her eyes saying,”This is my family and I am so lucky.”

Can you see the grapefruit tree just full of fruit?…only in Texas this time of year☺


“What is my mommy and daddy doing?”…


“Here is our boy!”…


We just love him to pieces…


“Yippee, the photo shoot is done!”…

How was your Thanksgiving holiday?

As you can see by the images above, we went to Texas to see Little Man’s family on Thanksgiving weekend..

They wanted their Christmas Photo shoot taken while I was there, can I tell you it was a lot of fun?!

This is just part 1 of the photo shoot. I will share part 2 with you very soon.

I would love to share something on a side note with you.

The blog sphere can be a great place of blessing and last week, I have been blessed by someone in this arena.

Kathi, of Summer Setting Blog sent me the new book, “Whispers of Hope” by Beth Moore. When GOD has blessed you and then you turn around and bless others…that my friends is a beautiful thing!!! If you are a christian, you will love her about page on her blog…she is a gift from God. She knows how to encourage and bless. She has traveled the world and has some exciting stories to share. Oh and by the way, she just had a new grandchild!!! How awesome is that? Go visit her and give her some love.

Take care of yourself.
