Some years ago I saw this amazing image. I did a little research and found out about Wreaths Across America and thought, "How nice."
Now it's personal.
An old high school friend who lives in Maine posted this on my facebook page earlier this week:
Today, someone I don't know and will never meet shared this picture with me:
For a little background, HERE's a six minute video that shows how the patriotism of one family has grown into a national organization.

Of course we celebrate family birthdays throughout the year, but we also have a birthday season. We're halfway through this year's!
It starts in November with E.W. Two weeks later is my mama's birthday. Five days after hers is Kate's and five days after that is Worth's. Bo's is four days after Worth's and we will soon be adding Banks to our December birthday list. Lucky Jay with his wife and both kids having December birthdays!

You'd think Kate would have been scarred by this tree farm experience, but she is a firm believer in a REAL tree still; we all are.
Confession. I did buy an artificial tree to put up this year. With a baby due Christmas Eve, Kate and her family won't be here and we'll celebrate the holiday at their house when Worth's bunch comes up to meet Banks. Also, I don't want E.W. to have to put away the ornaments; I have a system! Next year, when we're back in REAL tree mode, it can go in the dining room and play a supporting role in the festivities.

So thankful for today and that we got to spend it with some of the people we love. We surely did miss our south Georgia family, though.
|Bo's happy place: outside.|
|Wait. I thought we were going to stay outside all day.|
|Mama and her favorite granddaughter.|
|She also wanted a picture with her favorite daughter...|
|...and one to prove she's still tall!|
|Getting serious with Carol.|
|Bo can't quite figure out Wayne's flip phone; |
swiping the screen does nothing!
|E.W. and his girl|
|Bo and Grannie Rae|
|These two = double trouble.|
|Some of the bounty...way more that we needed.|
|Quite possibly the last picture as a family of three?|
|Bo practices his big brother skills|
on his week old cousin, James.
