  5. I think you must live with your camera in your hand girl. What lovely, lovely pics!

    And, the little boy with the walker, now that brought a tear to this CiCi's eyes this morning.

    No, no, no, the Graham family cannot get the "bug." Praying it passes right on through with no more attacks.

    Blessings on this Thanksgiving week my dear!

  54. EEEEKKKK!!! I almost missed it since I was so busy this past week and I didn't read blogs!! Whew. Okay so it goes without saying that all her stuff is gorgeous... but I do love all the turquoise necklaces and that one that looks like a round target with little turquoise beads would look super cute with about half my wardrobe. Just saying.

    So thankful for YOU sweet pea!! :)
