snippets of family and friends

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.” 
Edith Sitwell

This sweet home is where our daughter, Jamie and husband Josh and family now live, love and grow.  They moved in just before the holidays and are enjoying a lovely, spacious house that more than accommodates their large family.
baby #8 is due in March :)
Upstate NY twin, Jill, husband Brad and their precious four. 
Youngest daughter, Abbey feeling better after losing her car in a traffic accident.  She was hit from behind while sitting at a traffic light and forced into the cars in front of her.
The bottom left photo is Abbey and our oldest grandson, Jared, taken by dear, sweet blogging friend Judy (Just a Little Something for You).
A delightful visit from Judy and her husband, John, who came bearing delicious treats, pretty plates, exciting cookbook, warm smiles, loving hearts and leaving us happy and thankful for very special friends.

Beautiful growing family. Love to see pictures representing generations.
Home is so welcoming. House could be in a Trisha Romance picture for sure.

Thank the Lord for providing a beautiful home with ample space for the growing family of your daughter! It looks like there have been lots of special moments in your world lately. (And Raider? Well, he has it made!) :)

Just a little something from Judy said...

In this early morning hour, I must tell you dear friend, just how much I have enjoyed everyone of your latest posts! Truly, you are gifted at making a heart feel so blessed to have visited here, with the warmth of smiles, the delicious recipes, along with the exceptional food photography, and the heartfelt love you have for your God! It reminds me of the joy I feel when I visit a friend. Thank you so much for every minute of time that you put into blogging. I am sure many would agree, it adds beauty to our days.

I am so excited that I am now able to comment here! I don't know why, but I am so thankful!
