A Frozen Birthday Party

Thankful Thursday is here again and today I am so very thankful for family!!! Last night all 17 of us gathered to celebrate three granddaughters birthdays. One happened at the end of March and two are next week, so they always do a sister-birthday party. It was such fun! We had a yummy taco dinner and Kim made special individual desserts.
Papa and two of Kim and Eric's girl. 
Carrie's sweetheart.
The two Miss A's.  The one in all pink just turned 4 in March.  These two cousins look so much alike. I love how close all the cousins are-such a blessing.
The two oldest girls. 
When I saw Kim's expression, she looked just like Carrie.  Love watching our girls mature.
Often people will see Carrie and Kim together and think they are twins.  Love this photo.
Papa and Little Man. 
Miss A wanted a suitcase and she was so happy to have something to put all her doll clothes in.
American Girl clothing is always a hit. 

WE were supposed to wake up to the white stuff today and I'm so happy to say we didn't. It is cold and windy out and snow is in the forecast for later today.  We will be moving more of Carrie's household today; Brent took the day off and we have a covered trailer, so I think we are o.k. regardless of what the weather is.  I will say that it reminds me of our move from Ca. to Co., when we were in a winter storm; don't ever want to do that again. 
I hope you have a wonderful day and find many reasons to give thanks!


  1. What a beautiful family and wonderful celebration. We didn't get snow yesterday either but we did get freezing rain- ugh- xo Diana

  2. They are soo sweet and cute Noreen. Happy birthday to them all! Hope you get the majority of that move done before too much snow hits!

  3. Sweet, beautiful family! Hope the moving goes well.

  4. What wonderful blessings you have in your life.

  5. Firstly what a lovely family.
    For the boys and the Lego we saw this today
    Now Katie over at at is the kindest loveliest person and guess what....she makes American Doll clothes and is always making little girls happy. Pop over if you don't know her and I am sure she will make a little girl that has a suitcase very happy.
    Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. You always have such beautiful family photos! Kind of cold here lately too!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  7. Spending time with family is one of the most rewarding and legacy building things we can do with our lives. So happy that you have so many of your sweet kids and grands nearby! Enjoy your time and hope it didn't snow too much. Blessings, Cindy

  8. Oh what good times and blessings!

  9. Frozen has certainly made a huge impression on our youth!!! Our grandgirls loved it!!! Loved seeing all of the family photos. Your girls do look very much alike. My daughters are mistaken for twins from time to time as well.
    Is Carrie moving too? When will your move be?

  10. Your grands are just so, so precious! Praying that the weather cooperated and that you were able to move a lot of stuff easily and without any mishaps.

  11. What a fun birthday celebration! We have to family here so our celebrations are very small. How awesome to have 17 people to celebrate with. Love all the photos. Have a great weekend.....
