 Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
My, oh my what a wonderful day!
Plenty of sunshine heading my way
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay

Mister Bluebird on my shoulder
It's the truth, it's actch'll
Ev'rything is satisfactch'll
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
Wonderful feeling, wonderful day!
(song lyrics from the movie Song of the South)

I'm joining in with Jenny's Alphabe-thursday's "Z"!

It was a wonderful time spent with my hubby, children and granddaughter...

(Saturday...Our early Thanksgiving dinner together)

So thankful and blessed to have this time together!

( church...Papa with "Bunny")

(our three young'uns!...from youngest to oldest...tallest to shortest :o)

Son in law (Dr. Awesome) & daughter (Girly~Twirly)

Son in law (Dr. Amazing) & daughter (Girly~Whirly)

 Son (Heart-throb) & future daughter in law (Sweetie)

My hubby had to fly back to work before me, and two of our children had to drive back to their homes, work, school...

I had so much fun being able to watch our little "Bunny" during the days that her mommy and daddy were at work.

When I did fly back home, my work week back was great. I am slowly getting back into a routine...(usually Fridays are also my day off, but this week I switched with a dear co-worker, so I saw her patients today and she saw mine on Monday).
Yes, that is correct...Winner "S"! 
(Thank you all for your patience in my getting my "one post a week" post together!)

It was such a fun blog hop to be a part of and so fun to see all the visits and sweet comments left!

 Also, as always, I wish that I could draw something for everyone that entered! So, in past giveaways, I am giving those that entered a percents-off special, that may be used towards any orders. I do have a lot of orders to complete, but do work very hard to get to them completed as quickly as possible.

For those of you who had entered for a chance to win, but whose names were not drawn, and would like to order any artwork drawn with the name of your choice, please leave your that I can give you the 20% off special. The discount is valid until December 31, 2012.

glad you had a great time with your family. We are having lots at our house on Thanksgiving and will be doing some photo work as well. Hoping to get everybody in a group photo....tripod and timer! Joy! Gotta get to cleaning tomorrow and do a bit of baking maybe....pie shells for sure then freeze them? Sorry I've not got back to you about my order. Not sure what to do and not sure if I can do it. Have a good weekend, my friend. God bless!

Denise :) said...

Your family is beautiful! So glad you all got to be together for an early Thanksgiving!

We're still moving in to our house in New England, but I can't wait to find a place to hang the drawing you did for my husband's retirement last year!

I'm glad you had a good visit with the entire family :) It's good to see how wonderful things are with your kids and your granddaughter. You are so very blessed to have such a wonderful family :)

We just recently went back to California to visit family so I can imagine how happy you were to see your sweet Bunny because my in-laws were incredibly happy to have spent a whole week with Ellie in person.

Leslee said...

Dear Maria! So glad to read that you were able to have your ohana together AND to get to babysit for your adorable granddaughter :-) Isn't grandparenting THE best!?!?!?

LV said...

Glad to see you back in Georgia. I know you hated to leave that precious child. So cute. You have such an amazing family. Wish the world had more like you.

Veronica Lee said...

Hi Maria, Sorry I haven't been visiting. I have been so busy. Anyway, my Christmas decor are all up and I can take a breather now. Your family is multiplying, lol, but I bet you can never catch up to me. Renember my 2 daughters who had babies less than a year ago, one with twins? Well, they are both pregnant again, lol, so grandkids #11 and 12 are coming soon....Christine

Katherine said...

What a beautiful family! Looks like you all had a fantastic time together (if those gorgeous smiles are any indication ;o) Glad you got time to enjoy "Bunny"... she's such a cutie-pie!

Congrats to the lucky winners and thanks again for being a wonderful part of the coin purse blog hop.
