Colette's Thanksgiving Post 2009
I am thankful for Peter, Pumpkins and more
While this is an baby picture and older page of Peter, it draws fond memories. My mom, Sally, took Peter to the pumpkin patch and then used her creativity to put the page together. Peter is now 14, tall, very smart and handsome. We have moved a lot since that picture was taken, and yet we are back in Georgia, not too far from where Peter was born. Luke was born in Georgia too and is now 11, almost 12. Our optimist daughter, Anna-Kate, was born in Texas and is seven. We lived in Denton, Texas, for three years, then Christchurch, New Zealand, for three years and are thankful for the friends we have in Texas and family and friends in New Zealand. We have been back in Alpharetta, Georgia, for four years. Four years is a record and a milestone for us. I am thankful we have been in our current house for four years. That might not sound much to you, but this is the first time in over 25 years, that I have lived in one home for four years. I am so thankful to have been in this one place, for four years, this warm home with central heat and air! This cozy house on a cul –de- sac, near quaint downtown Alpharetta. I am thankful for our friends and neighbors here, our church, and our good public schools. While we won’t be traveling anywhere for Thanksgiving and don’t have local family to spend the holiday with – I am thankful for my three healthy children and a place to call home. I am thankful Warren is home, safe and in-town (not working overseas this week). I am thankful for a mom that is so creative and has lovingly made so many scrapbook pages for me and my children. Hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving and take time to count your blessings!
