So very grateful...



...for a photo shoot that went well! 
Happy beautiful Monday everyone, it is time for The Pink Elephant's special post today: being Grateful for all wonderful things in our lives, especially for our friends over at TPE!
{Please note, it is not a challenge, just a time for us to pay homage to Thanksgiving and all that we have.}
I am grateful for my children: Isiah, Jay, Kalil, Lily, Maali and Nala who fill my days with laughter, my heart with warmth, and our home with love.  When hubby and I were dating, we talked about having a big family, both agreeing that 6 would be a wonderful size. I am usually an underachiever but I guess this was one that I succeeded. haha!
We recently did our photo shoot for the kiddos and, as you can see, having them all smile at the same time is a daunting task. 5 out of 6 ain't bad, right? After all Isiah is only 2, that suspicious age where compliance doesn't come easily.
Come by TPE's blog {here} to see the beautiful projects that the girls created for this special post. Have a great Monday everyone, may your day be full of successful planning and lots of YOU time!
