Saturday Sunshine and Shadows and Smiles

Sitting here listening to nice Christmas music, posting a really quick one today. It's Saturday...another beautiful weekend in North Carolina. Blue skies...Sunshine... Bringing Smiles all around. Have all four of my treasures here still. Justin goes back to LeJeune Monday, but will return for Thanksgiving holiday. Kurt is with his family in Ohio this weekend, so I know he is having a GREAT weekend. Happy for him!! He will fly in to Charlotte next Wednesday.

Shadow Play today...


























No Shadow here, but a pic I GRABBED of my Marine playing around with the dawgs this morning!!



And Son #2 (Here ya go Dad...the son you didn't get to see last weekend!!) is participating with some other guys in a crazy "No Shave November" pact! Can you tell??? He and Justin are getting ready to go out and play football with a bunch of rough and rowdy guys! :-)



Hope all of you wherever you are have a wonderful weekend whether it is Sunny or Cloudy, Warm or Chilly, Colorful leaves on the ground or SNOW! God bless you. Thankful for all God gives to us every single day both in His common grace gifts and in His overwhelming Special Grace gifts.


Today ...this reminded me that I am very thankful to have my Marine home for Thanksgiving...knowing that he and many others will most likely be deployed and far away next Thanksgiving. Please remember to pray for all our military heroes who are away from family and home this Thanksgiving. Thanks from this Marine mom...

Hugs a Plenty!

Julie, we share that love for blue and white. The chair that your doggie is sleeping on ... the one that looks like it's embroidered fabric... that is so pretty.
Glad that your husband is getting some time to visit his extended family here in the midwest. And i bet you can't wait to see him on Wednesday! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

It really is a beautiful weekend here in
North Carolina and even more so looking
at all your lovely pictures. I hope you
will take some pictures when you get
everything decorated for Christmas. I
am putting up our tree the day after
Thanksgiving. Can hardly wait! I'm so
glad your husband gets to come home
for Thanksgiving. I know all of you
will have a wonderful day together!
Hugs,
Sandy
