To Be Thankful

We have so many things to be thankful for! This past year has been great - not without bumps and bruises, but we are all healthy and happy. This Thanksgiving, I am grateful always for my children and my husband - I am truly the luckiest girl in the world. I am also thankful for all the people who have sacrificed the comforts of their homes to help better the world, in all the various ways they are doing it. I am grateful for our families; I don't know what we'd do if Shawn and I weren't both so blessed with such wonderful parents and siblings. I'm especially grateful that my Dad is still here this Thanksgiving, after heart surgery in June.

We lived blessed lives. Happy Thanksgiving!

Catching Up...

Okay, so I'm a little slow at keeping this blog current. I just like to read everyone else's! It's been an eventful couple of months in Soaresland - all good stuff though. No major injuries! Here are some photos of

Halloween at Nana's (Emma talked about being topless for many days after the bobbing for apples ... Lord, help us!!)

Dancing Queen

This was Emma at the Deerfield Fair on Sunday, waiting for her brothers to come out of the funhouse. What a scream!
