Thankful Thursday

Do you know who this is in the pictures below?

How cool is it that on Thankful Thursday I finally got to meet my precious bloggy friend Linny that started Thankful Thursday? So as you can guess I am so thankful that I got to meet her precious family this morning.

They are on vacation and were driving right through our area so they spent the night at my friend Rett's house. We were hoping to have dinner with them last night but due to RV trouble they got in very late so we got to hang out with them for a little while this morning while they were packing up.

It was so much fun to have all our kids playing together. Let me tell you that her kids are just PRECIOUS and oh so cute.

This picture below is Liberty. I tell you she is just the cutest thing and so very sweet.

Look at this beautiful face. I have to tell you that I have always thought little Elijah was just beautiful but oh my goodness in person him and Elizabeth made me want to jump on a plane to Africa today.

Now Isaiah looks just like Jaxson but a little older. I could not believe how much they look alike and he was the ball throwing king let me tell you. Doesn't he have the best smile ever?

OK, one last picture. This was Elijah eating a big strawberry and Isaiah putting his arm around him.

It was so exciting to get to meet this family after having followed their life the last year on their blog. We have cried for them, celebrated for them, prayed and fasted for them but we finally got to hug them.
DW and Linny, if you read this thank you for taking the time to stop and meet us!
PS The other kids are precious too but I didn't get good pictures of all of them.

I could have done without MY picture showing up, thank you very much! You can crop me out next time!

I had such fun...even though it was a whirlwind gabfest. Next time, we're going for coffee for sure.

Thanks for sharing the experience that is, The Saunders. God was glorified today!

We loved being with all of you....and if only that dumb RV hadn't given us fits (or better yet, if we hadn't bought it!), we would have been there on time and played all night!! But we will thank the LOrd for the time we did have! Yippee Jesus!! You guys are a blessing and we love you! xo
