They grow up so fast!

Pin It Now!

It was so wonderful having Vince here for Thanksgiving this year!  He's now off to visit his dad for the rest of the weekend.  Before we headed to the train station to drop him off I stopped by the school down the street so I could snap a few pictures of my two kiddos.  They grew up way too fast!  


My mom and dad will be thrilled to get this photo in the mail next week!

You must be one proud mama!

Oh no don't say that...no matter how hard it is having 6 little ones under 8...I know what you say is true. I will miss them being little and kissable too soon. Your children are beautiful.

Hi Cindy,

What a nice blog you have!
(I found you on Charmhill interiors)

i was suprised to see that you had bought what seams to be swedish silver forks and knifes.
In sweden the pattern is called Olga and it is a rather old pattern from 1830!

This is a link to GAB gense, the manufacturer in Sweden!

Hi Cindy,
So glad you had a nice Thanksgiving with your children. They are good looking just like their mama! My youngest boy is coming home in less than a month; can't wait to see him! I haven't seen him since last Christmas! I have lots to celebrate.

Blessings,
Sandi

Karin, Lauren has died her hair brown and even black (horrible) in the past but she finally appreciates her beautiful auburn/red hair and I'm so happy! Now if I could just get her to appreciate her curls I'll be really happy. She straightens her hair every day!

they are still kissable even at this age!

momstheword said...

You have two beautiful children. I agree, they do grow up so fast. Mine are 15 and 19 and they refuse to stop growing, even though I've asked them very nicely!

Cindy,
They grow up in the blink of an eye... Your kids are gorgeous. ☺

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Yes, they do grow up fast. It is hard to believe mine are grown and with families of their own. You have some beautiful children - I know you are proud.

Your kids are so beautiful! I know you had a very good Thanksgiving with them. They do grow up so fast. It's unbelievable at times.


Cindy...this is so funny. I just woke up and I still had my laptop on where I was leaving you a comment.(the part above this)I fell asleep. I dont know if you will be able to tell I did that by looking on your live-feed list or not. LOL I worked yesterday from 4:15 to 4:15. Black Friday! I was still so keyed up when I got home that I thought I would check out my blog friends. I can't believe that I slept this long. I dreamed that was still at work ringing up sales with Christmas music playing!The same song over and over again!

Hugs,
Lee Laurie

Great photo Cindy! Wonderful looking kids you've got there. So glad you had a nice Thanksgiving.

Judi said...

Oh Cindy!
What a beautiful, beautiful family you have! My Vince is heading back tomorrow after a glorious week of having him here with us! But, not until after he helps me with another cooking extravaganza for family and friends tonight. I woke up with such a heavy heart today knowing that our wonderful time together is coming to an end. But....the holidays will be here soon and OUR Vinces will be back with their mothers...where they belong! ;-)
So happy to hear you had such a lovely time!
Great picture!

mgster said...

wow! They are certainly attractive kids! Your daughter's coloring and hair are to die for! :)

A Thing for Roses said...

Cindy, your children are beautiful! I love the sweet little expression on Lauren's face. Looks like she has a secret. I think your son looks like a celebrity. Maybe a cross between David Archeleta and Paul Rudd which I hope you will take that as a compliment as I think they are both very attractive. Thanks for sharing.

Best wishes,

Lisa

Sincerely Yours said...

Yes, my dear friend is moving to San Jose. I've gotten her addicted to your blog, and she was thrilled when you wrote the post about how much you love living there. We were actually joking that she already knew someone there; you! haha!

Cindy, your son and daughter are beautiful. Our children really do grow up fast, and as we say good-bye to childhood we get to welcome adults who reason and converse with us. And we are so very proud of them.

I am so glad you had a lovely Thanksgiving with both Vince and Lauren. You have a lovely family, lovely home. I am very happy for you, kiddo. It's very odd looking at photos of our families now compared to what we thought the future would hold oh so long ago...

Love you much! -September
