"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

“There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met.”- William Butler Yeats

We had an absolutely wonderful Thanksgiving. Family and friends joined us to give thanks for the the many blessings that have been bestowed upon us. The kids played with cousins while the grown-ups partied enjoyed each other's company. The evening ended with many over-stuffed-and-unbuckled-belts, but everyone was a very happy camper.

Since I know I have a few new readers, I thought I'd take the time and introduce you to some of the very special people that I am so thankful to have in my life.

Here they are:

My beautiful baby girl lovin' on her Mama!

My Kai! Complete and total cuteness!

Scott showing off his chocolate fantasy creation, the famous "Ken Lee" cake.

My serious but adorable little guy, AJ, in deep thought.

My Mom and of course, my beautiful daughter, Amanda.

My sweetheart, Scott (left), my brother and the family's youngest blessing, my precious nephew, Seth!

My Chinese treasures, Anna Grace and Kai, with cousins Emily (background) and Gianna, who just happens to be my sweet Godchild also.

My sister, Ily, with her pride and joy, Seth. Yaaayy! Baby Seth is finally walking! Isn't he gorgeous? I love that boy!

I am so very proud of this young man standing with Scott. This is my nephew, Anthony! He's definitely gonna be a wonderful hubby to a very lucky girl someday!

Kai sharing a special moment with his beloved "Shu Shu", my brother-in-law, Herb.

One of the table decors I really loved! (Had to throw that in.)

The loves of my life, minus our 2 big boys who weren't able to be with us (and who their Mama missed so much!)

Definitely a Mama's boy!

My little prince and princess entertaining themselves while waiting for dinner.
