Oh what a beautiful family you have Darla! I have seen them seperately in other photos, but always love to see the group shot! I see what you mean about imbalance. We are all about balance here, with two boys and two girls. We always said if a boy and a girl were considered a millionaires family, we must be bilionaires. Now the grands balance needs some adjusting! That's what happens when your daughters marry men who only have brothers, and their dads only have brothers. Add that to the criteria. Our number one criteria was tall, and they have all followed that rule. HA

Hey Darla,

You definitely have much to be thankful for. Not only is your garden beautiful, your children are also beautiful.

I bet you had a great time with all of your kids together. You can see the love between them in the pictures. My sisters and I all were together for Thanksgiving, even as adults we have lots of fun and laughter.
