As you can see I change the picture on my header. Yes it is a little blurry and old (1967) and I think I like it that way. Life was really good then, I say as I look through those rose colored glasses! This is one of my favorite pictures and I am not even in it! They are my younger siblings, Casey, Flynn, Darcy and Shaughnessy Hogan. My youngest brother, Duffy was not born yet and has since passed away. I love how Shaughnessy has her hair "set" for the big day, my brothers, Casey and Darcy in their plaid robes and Flynn in her fuzzy slippers with a smile that only a child can have on Christmas day.

The above picture is of 4 of my husband's siblings (2 guns, a guitar and a baby!). We both come from large families, he has 5 brothers and 3 sisters. I have 3 brothers and 2 sisters. I am very thankful to have all of them. They made us the people we are today. They are the ones we were the closest to growing up and have shared experiences with, good and bad.
As we sit around the table and celebrate this year I will be thankful for each and every one of them!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
