Bittersweet Introductions This Thanksgiving

I’m so excited to be heading up to Fairbanks for Thanksgiving this year!  It’s been a couple years since we’ve been up there for Thanksgiving and we are really looking forward to good food and fun times!

I can’t wait to meet the twins and give Mel and Craig a big hug from all of us!

Lots of Love,

    Congratulations to Mel & Craig!!!!!!! I’m SO excited for them & will surely keep them and their little ones in my prayers. If they have Mel’s positive spirit, they’ll be just fine! Give them hugs for me and I wish you all a very blessed and family-filled Thanksgiving! xoxo
