The Picture

     Since all of our family is together for Thanksgiving, this is a great time to have a photo op..........gathering all the grandchildren for our yearly Christmas card. Of course, when seven little kids come together.......it's a scream (literally).  
From this: Screaming....I made the mistake of telling them to say "turnips"....go figure.

To not paying attention:  

To a little Photoshop and sweet face magic!

Of course, we are Razorback fans...........the background picture is the senior walk in Fayetteville with their great grandmother's name etched in the walk.  It truly takes about 50 snaps to get one good picture!

Here is the first year's picture...first five blessings.
Then this one at the farm.......

And last year's:

     It's hard to describe the joy that I get looking at these little precious faces.  As difficult as parenting is, it's all worth it when your children grow up and give you grandchildren!  We are truly blessed by God.  I pray daily that these gifts will grow up to be men and women of God.  


  1. I loved reading and enjoying your pictures and isn't it fun to go back and look at the pictures from each Christmas card.....

    Such precious children....what would we do without our grandkids....love them to pieces......

    Hugs and blessings,
