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!
