My two babies!  (When did they become BABES???)
And here are their babies (including the one wiggling around in my DIL's tummy!)  The two sitting on the ends of the loveseat are my daughter's daughters.  The boy, the two girls in the middle and the one hidden under the pink sweatshirt are my son's children.
My eldest granddaughter is now taller than me!       She is now 15, soon to be 16.  I've told her several times that she's not allowed to grow up.  But, just like a kid, obviously has never listened.  Here are all the grownups, as my grandkids called us:  DIL Dana, son Brad, daughter Cindy, me, GrinninGrampa, SIL Tim.
The three youngest granddaughters and I made cookies together.All the kids were supposed to participate but the ones at the opposite end of the grandkid-age-category (eldest granddaughter and grandson, who is currently the youngest) bailed on us.  They did help a little, however, with the decorating and helped a lot with the eating. 
     I hope your Thanksgiving was as wonderful as ours!
     What's that?  You say enough of the family pictures and let's get on with the monthly Giftaway?  Oh.  Okay.
    But first, didn't you notice that I never posted the pictures of all the prizes?  You saw the picture of the Christmas cup and saucer and I said that I might give away another vintage apron.  
     Well, I've changed my mind about giving away one of my aprons.  I've decided to give away TWO of them.  (It IS the month for giving, you know...)
     The winner will also receive a couple of my handmade ornies (ornaments).  I just need to know whether this person prefers primitive or cottage-style.  And of course, there are always the surprises that I like to include.
     So, who is the winner?  The name that was drawn this month is:  Judy of Brocante and Etc. 
      Congratulations, Judy!  Please email me at with your snail addy and preference.
     And now it's time for me to get to work on this month's Giftaway!  Leave a comment to qualify.  Everyone who left comments before this post (December commenters only ;) ) already have their names in the proverbial pot!  Good luck!

Love those pictures! I'm glad you went and had such a great time with all those grandchildren and then made it home safely.

You have a beautiful family Sher! Just gorgeous. What a treat for you to get everyone gathered in one spot all at the same time.

Love, Janet

You may have gotten a comment earlier from the FFM. I apologize if it came through your blog. I asked a helper to contact some of the gals whose email addys I didn't have.

Hope you are having a beautiful holiday season. Blessings... Polly

What a beautiful family, thank you for sharing them with us. Looks like you had a terrific time with the grandkids making cookies. The cookie dough must, must be touched by children to taste right.

You have such a beautiful family, Sher.I am so happy for you. After more than a decade, that reunion had surely been like a dream come true for you, grinnin gramma. Thanks for sharing those pix. At least, I'm able to meet your kids and grandkids on the web. Btw, your grandkids are my grandkids too, right?:))

God bless you and take care dear cousin! Have a safe and beautiful day!

You sure do have a lovely family. Kids do grow up fast dont they? My oldest son is 14 and taller than I am. My youngest just turned 4. It's like you blink your eyes and they are grown. Where does the time go?

Thank you for sharing your pics. You have some beautiful granddaughters and daughter, handsome grandson and son.
