Happy Happy Thursday dear friends,  I hope you are all well and enjoying each day as it is given.  Today I am so very thankful for love of family; I know I sound like a broken record but it's true-nothing brings me more joy than our gang.  I am thankful that my brother and sweet sil made it safely to Ireland, after departing JFK on Sunday.  I am thankful that his little episode with food poisoning was truly nothing more serious and although scared the pants off my sil and ended him in the hospital, he is hopefully now enjoying their tour.

I am very thankful for our daughters and their families.  This photo was taken at a wedding this summer and we had a great time attending.  From L-R, hubby with granddaughter D in his lap, Miss S with her daddy, me, daughter Kim  with baby A and our Little Peanut.
  Last night they got a new, little 9 week old miniature Schnauzer; she is adorable and very calm & submissive.  They've named her Petrol(as in oil)and I know she'll be a wonderful addition to the family. Her is a photo of our little Peanut holding her this morning. O.k. so I'm smitten-she is just the cutest little puppy. She hasn't met Samson yet-it was dark and raining out last night and he is so big that they didn't want to scare her.  I'm heading over there is a bit to help out-mainly to hold that little bundle. 
Have a great Thursday.
Hugs, Noreen


  1. Morning Noreen. I totally agree, there is no greater gift than the love of one's family! Love the family photo. Hooray for the new puppy. Hope they enjoy him!!

  2. What a beautiful family!!! :>) Now that is, indeed, something to be very thankful for!!! You have the cutest grand-babies. I am thankful that I get to sleep in each day, due to unemployment (see, there is always an upside to things that could look down!!). Much love, dear friend!! ~alice

  3. I'm so glad that your brother and his family are enjoying themselves now. What a cute little addition to their lives.(Alright, I'll admit it that we are peas in a pod when it comes to dogs, lol)
    Love you

  4. Hi Noreen,
    What a beautiful surprise to visit your site today and see the wonderful fall background! So lovely and refreshing.
    What a cute pic of your granddaughter and Petrol.
    Are you enjoying the autumn blessings there yet?

  5. I love your blog's fall look, Noreen!
    Your family photos continue to be so precious. I loved the one of your granddaughter shooting her bow. As you can tell by our camo attire, we are archers in our family. My husband got interested a few years ago and I thought, "Well, why not?" It's fun and it's a good sport for our son as well.
    I hope for a beautiful fall as well. Our little town, with its many trees, is a great place to be in autumn.
    Have a very blessed weekend......Denise

  6. Me, too. I'm all about being with
    my family. Yours sure look like a
    sweet bunch! =0)
    Thanks for your kind comments on
    my post today. And the jewelry is
    for sale, by the way.

  7. No wonder you wear such a joy-filled smile! That's quite a collection of kids & grandkids; and I've no doubt they treasure you equally.

    Fall has certainly fallen, hasn't it. Love the new "decor" :)
