To all of my family I am so thankful for each and every one of you. I feel very blessed to have come from such an amazing heritage and I am excited about carrying on that heritage with my own family. These are pictures that my mom let me borrow. I have scanned them and decided to post them on my blog so that anyone in the family can come here and save the images to their own computer.

I can't think of a better time then Thanksgiving to be grateful for my heritage. Granny and Grandad are the most amazing people I have ever met. I know I wouldn't be where I am or who I am today if it wasn't for them.

You are so cute! I loved that post! I too am so thankful for this family. I always feel so luky to have come from Granny and Grandad. Love you! Oh- everytime Nathan sees your picture (I always show him your blog so he can get to know Jack) he always askes me if that's mommy. He can't ever tell. Isn't that funny?
