Thankful Thursday #1

Posted on November 10th, 2011


I have been so inspired by many of my friends’  facebook posts each day that I decided to dedicate a post each week in November to this reason as well. Gratefulness goes right along with what God has been teaching me recently — spending time being thankful instead of complaining. So here is Thankful Thursday #1

I am thankful to be an aunt to three incredibly sweet, beautiful nieces and one cute, new nephew!

It was a joy to have Abby and Lauren be our flower girls at our wedding. (Pictured is the Wedding Rehearsal – notice their cute shirts!)

I loved going to American Girl at the AG cafe in Chicago with Abby.

I love how grown-up Abby is getting and her thoughtful, creative mind.

I also enjoyed eating lunch with Lauren at the  American Girl Cafe too.

I love that these girls indulge me in girlie activities like painting nails.

I love how Lauren has such a spunk and zeal for life.

I love how the girls enjoy playing so imaginatively like hair salon!

We love watching these girls grow up and wish we lived closer.

I loved going to a dairy farm with the girls and watching their excitement in the little things.

One of my all-time favorite moments: being at the hospital when Annie was born 3 weeks early!

I loved holding this sleeping baby in the sunflower field just weeks after she was born.

I am so thankful I was able to celebrate Annie at her first birthday party.

I was so happy when Annie (and her parents) came to Chicago last summer. I had missed her since I didn’t see her while going through chemo.

I loved having time to read to Annie while visiting  and only wish I could do so more often!

I love how Annie calls me “Aunt Shewll.”

I love her fiery, sweet personality!

I was so grateful to meet James a couple of weeks after he was born.

I could look at this cute face all day!

Thank you, Abby, Lauren, Annie, and James for allowing me to be your aunt! I love you to pieces!
