Happy Thanksgiving from my home to yours! As my children grow up, get married, and have families of their own, it's sometimes a challenge to coordinate the holidays so we can all be together. This year we celebrated an early Thanksgiving and the family was almost complete. (Our daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter in Switzerland couldn't be here).
Truly, I have so much to be thankful for! The Lord has blessed abundantly, and I can't begin to express my gratefulness in words, on a blog post. So I'll leave it at that and instead will show you a few pictures of my own sweet little Thanksgiving Pilgrims and Indians.
When I sewed two Pilgrim dresses in the late 1980's for my first 2 girls, I had no idea that twenty-some years later my 5th daughter and my granddaughter would be wearing the same little dresses. Emily is 7, my granddaughter just turned 4, and my grandson is 5. Elliot is almost as tall as Emily! This will probably be the last year that the dress will fit Emily.
In this picture taken in 2007, Emily is just 2 and 1/2 years old.
I sewed this Indian costume in 2007 when Jacob was 7 years old. He loved the costume so much that he wore it almost continually for years until he finally outgrew it. Now he's 12. Sigh. Where do the years go?!
