My Cup Runneth Over

Thankful Day 20- I am in the middle of getting ready for Thanksgiving dinner for 23, planning Juliana's wedding, getting stuff ready for the Christmas season and all that entails.  To say that life is busy would be a total understatement.

Yesterday in the middle of all the madness, The VanDyke family took a little time to take some family pictures.  I set up the tripod on the patio and everyone filed outside so that Mommy could capture some pics of our growing family.

To tell you the truth, I expected some complaining about the cold, although it was quite pleasant, and I expected Henry to try and run away through the yard.  I am happy to say that I was wrong.  Everyone enjoyed it and we laughed and talked and had a good time.

I do believe that I have the most gorgeous children so I like to take pictures of them.  I love it that my handsome debonair husband wore his black hat, like I asked him to.  Juliana, Scovia & Kelcie allowed me to sit them on the cold stone wall for a picture.  I did feel bad about the stone being so cold.

Juliana, Scovia & Kelcie…Gosh, they are beautiful

Today, I am thankful for the time I get to spend with my family.  Bo, Jake, Juliana, Kelcie, Henry and now Scovia and Aaron, I love you all very much and I am thankful to have you in my life.  I am thankful that they indulge my passion of taking pictures of them at any given moment.  They are my heart and today my heart is full.  I feel like the Mom on Hope Floats, "My cup runneth over."

Everyone is making silly faces except for Scovia
