“The life of a family is filled with beautiful moments: rest, meals together, walks in the park or the countryside, visits to grandparents or to a sick person… But if love is missing, joy is missing, nothing is fun. Jesus gives always gives us that love: he is its endless source. In the sacrament he gives us his word and he gives us the bread of life, so that our joy may be complete.”                                                                          –Pope Francis October 2013 

We certainly feel blessed this year.

for snuggly new babies . . . 
and family . . . 
(thanks to Nana, who’s cooking today, and Grandad,
who’s wrangling kids so we’ll have Thanksgiving!
and the two extra little girls in there are
Emma and Skylar, our Iowa cousins.)

and for all of you who make this blogging thing so much fun.
May God bless you and all your celebrations today.
love,
The Tierneys
