How many blessings do I have to share with you today? How about seven - all of my grandchildren + my two sons + my daughters-in-law. Both of my sons married wonderful girls (now women) who happened to l♥ve children. As a result, I was blessed with six little boys and one little girl to rock and to kiss and to hug and to snuggle. The oldest is now twelve and the youngest two, so I think that I am pretty much at the end of the road when it comes to welcoming babies into my family - but what a journey it was and is and will be in the coming years.
The photos you see are at my son, Jeff's home the evening before Thanksgiving. The children were busy making graham cracker houses to decorate with candy pieces; however, just as much of the candy went into little tummies as did on their creations.
Of course, once the little houses were all decorated, several of the children felt that it was important to try their hand at "candy basketball" along with their uncle and daddy. The children didn't score too many "baskets" but the dogs l♥ved the game snuffling up the candy off the floor as soon at it landed.
