Thankful Thought | No.6

Today I'm thankful for Facetime and technology that allows Aunties and cousins on two different coasts to chat "face to face."

Last night Simon and Anna had a nice long chat with Auntie Jessica and cousin Gabrielle (with a quick appearance from Jeffrey). They talked about preschool, Halloween costumes, Simon showed them his pirate legos and told a couple knock knock jokes that had Gabrielle totally cracking up. We can't wait to have them here for Halloween.

    How sweet this is Ali. I'm so thankful for all the ways I can stay connected to my oldest at college and the few families who are far away. Thank you for the download.

    I'm starting to think about December Daily and maybe even doing one for October this time too.
    Happy Monday with HUGS.

    How happy Simon and Anna look. My grandchildren love it when we skype their Aunt and Uncle and he makes funny faces for them! I too am thankful for being able to stay connected. And, thank you for your Thankful Thoughts series.

    Thanks, Ali. I agree about Facetime. My husband is gone right now, but he can Facetime with the kids from his nearby library and it helps so much.
    I'm praying for you and your family. Take care.

    I love your thankful thoughts. I wanted to look back at Thankful Thought 001, but the link isn't working and said "page not found". I thought you'd like to know.

    Hugs and prayers for you and your family.

    We love Skype too we live 1000's of kms from my parents and o/s relatives in Canada, US & UK so it just make our kids get that contact regularly. They feel they know their extended family well. And when we do get together there is never any shyness its straight into having fun and cuddles.

    Thanks for thankful thought no.6 too!

    Hello Ali,

    I really enjoy all of your posts. Thank you for them all. I have a question that does not apply to this post but can you tell me what album you will be using this year for your Christmas countdown? I was wondering.

    Thank you so much

    Adorable photo. Wow, did Anna grow up overnight, or what? What a big girl now.

    Off to do more browsing and catching up.

    Hope all is well on your end.
