Hope you had a great Thanksgiving

This year for Thanksgiving, I had a wonderful time.  We were able to bring Christina home for a couple of days from the group home.  She really enjoyed herself.  My son,with his family, drove up to NJ from Florida and spent 4 days with us.  His children are growing so big.  Tyler, my grandson, is now the tallest person in our family.  The girls, Angelica and Karly are becoming young ladies.  Even Dusty, the family dog, came up for a visit and was wonderful.  (I really enjoyed him.)  They stayed with Dave and me. 

My brother and sister-in-law from Illinois (Rich and Janet) flew in last Saturday.  So did their son, Jared with his wife Kai and daughter Alexis; their son Andy; and their daughter, Julia, with her husband Tilma and their son TJ and foster son Kyrall.  My brother and sister-in-law. Ralph and Bernice, drove up from South Carolina, with their daughter Ashley and dog Lily. This group of people stayed at my mother's house, and it was packed there.

Everyone came to my house for Thanksgiving dinner.  There were 20 people for dinner.  We enjoyed turkey, stuffing, potatoes, rutagaba, creamed onions, peas, lima beans and corn, cranberry sauce, and of course pies....pumpkin, pecan, and apple.  I don't believe anyone went home hungry.     We took lots of  family pictures.  The opening picture is our family who made it to dinner.  Below is a picture of my mom with all her grandchildren (minus 2) and great-grandchildren.

Did you enjoy the pages from yesterday?  Well, today I am adding the final pages of Renee's baby book.  I must say, Renee is a cutie, even if she is my great-granddaughter!  In case you haven't seen a pciture of Renee, here are a couple of her with Dave (aka Pop-Pop). 

Now for the final pages of the scrapbook!  Here they are:

Hopefully pictures of Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles will be on this page...all of them with Renee.

Can you see Renee drinking her bottle or eating? How cute the pictures will be.

The final page. I hope you have enjoyed these pages.

More baby book pages

As promised, I have more pictures of baby book pages.  Now, I could make these much fancier and add more embellishments, but I know for my great-granddaughter, her mother scraps, so when she adds the pictures, she can journal and add more embellishments.

Renee is a jewel in Mommy's eye. She is definitely Daddy's queen. (Most would say she is his princess, but no, she is his queen. He truly worships Renee.)

A look at individual body parts...eyes,nose, mouth, feet, hands, etc.

These pages are for pictures of Renee playing.


Night-night. Here will be sleeping pictures. Ah...a baby looks so sweet and peaceful when sleeping.

Ok.  Those are the pictures for tonight.  Tomorrow I will add the last few pictures of Renee's book.  After that I plan to post a Christmas hanging that is a class I will be teaching this weekend.  It is really cute.  Thanks for looking, Please leave a post to let me know your thoughts on the book.  Until tomorrow...bye.

Babies are coming out of the woodwork!

Babies?  Yes, babies.  This year I have had 3 new babies added to our family.  Our granddaughter had her first child, Renee, in June.  She is a cutie.  My niece had a son in February and my nephew's wife had a daughter.  I have been trying to make baby albums for each of them.  Let me share a couple of pictures with you today.  I hope you enjoy them.
