More Family Photos

This is my son in law Brannon with Little Elizabeth. She is the foster girl that my daughter Melody has had since she was just a few weeks old. There has been a couple times that "Sissy" has gone back to her mom's but she has always been able to back home to her Nana Melody and Poppy Joe. Her brother Jonathan spends a lot of time with my daughter Megan. In fact he spent Christmas with her and I was able to watch his excitement over seeing what Santa had left. (He is wearing one of Quintin's tees for a sleep shirt. He thinks Quintin is awesome)

And this is Baby Lily. She is Jonathan and Elizabeth's baby sister. She stays with her mom but Melody was able to bring her over for our family dinner. Of course daughter Maggie was quick to be first to hold her. It was so fun being with all 3 girls and the grands. We laughed, teased, talked, and just treasured our time since we aren't all together very often. And we evened worked on the jigsaw puzzle together without fighting over it! Christmas in the mountains was wonderful but being with family was truly a blessing!

It has been another few days of warm weather with a little bit of rain. Tomorrow is suppose to bring in heavy rain. I plan on getting lots of inside chores done as well as catch up some reading. I got several good books for Christmas just waiting for me to read. Hope you are having a great week and counting those blessings!!

Hi Peggy, Love this post... So glad that your daughters are helping raise those 3 children. What a wonderful 'mission' for them--and for the kids.

You are such a fabulous mother --and I can feel your influence in your daughters... YOU would have taken those kids in also if the opportunity was there.

God Bless YOU and your wonderful family.

Nice pictures!

Enjoyed our time with family at the holidays this year too, don't get to see my niece's and nephew very often and all my siblings were here as well, just missed my other sister-in-law, she's having her 3rd daughter by a scheduled c-section in 3 weeks (January 31st), this will be my brother's 4th daughter but it was nice spending time with everyone else though.
