Family

 
 Here's the whole clan, as of last weekend.  Ah. I just love these people. So much.

        And here are all of the Morton siblings! (Look, we're like the top of an M!! Or a  heart, or  valleys with hills!!)
I'm so grateful for the 11 other people in this picture....I just enjoy being with them, SO much. Each personality, each 'look', each height, each set of giftings...It has been (and is) so much fun to grow up with them.
The Marrieds (as we call them) looking adorable!! Alan, Kressant, Lise Marie, Rachel and Noah are simply some of the greatest blessings in our lives. It continues to amaze me every time I watch one of the couples together...they are just inexpressibly...perfect.
The Lord  does all things well.
 "Hug hug. Keese keese. Hug hug. Little keese..."     ("Booya!!" :D  )
  
The Grand Girls
Ahhh!! You just want to-to-uhm-squeeeeze 'dem!!!!
My Mama and Daddy are grandparents!!! To 16 grandbabies!! 13 here and 3 on the way.  What a blessing and a heritage.

The Babies' conversing.... "Mercy, Enoch, darling, stay calm.  It will soon be alright....."
  
Yes, I know. You're so right, I was just thinking the same thing......... The fact that here before us are the cutest children on earth!!  Presenting.....

"The air was thick with the sniffles of the women present. The chilling evening dew only worsened their hopes of healthful escape.
"Enough!! Enough!! Release me lest I perish!!" cried the weeping damsels as they flailed helplessly in the iron grasps of their relentless captors, their beloved bunnies cast aside in the desperate struggle for freedom. Passies tossed unheeded to the ground. Blankies all forgotten.
"Stay calm, woman. Do you want them to tie us all? Quit your weeping!" Their neighbors whispered through clenched teeth, trembling as they spoke.
A sudden scramble attracted the attention of the mob that had gathered.
"Come! now!! f-follow me!! Cried the brave lad in Bermuda shorts, weeping as he spoke, barely moving on trembling knees as he attempted to make a hasty escape.
"I-I-know the way to safety!"
The few others only stood, knowing their escape was futile. They put on brave smiles, and tried to brush away the tears that threatened to undo them..."

Ah...these little ones are such a great blessing. God is so gracious.  
(LOL, They did so good, too, dear little ones. Ah!!! I miss them all looking at these pictures tonight.)
ALL the S'K'Morton children!! (plus 3 grandbabies, too!)

"But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children; 
To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them. 
The Lord hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.
Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
Bless ye the Lord, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.
Bless the Lord, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the Lord, O my soul."

Psalm 103, 17-22

I bless You, Lord Jesus, and I thank You!! Thank You for your salvation, and for my family, too. I love You.

Love forever, Adeline

Beautiful pictures! You are a special, beautiful, Godly family.

Now, with 13 + 3 more grandbabies though, I think you should do a post listing which grandbabies (including those 3 sweet unborn ones) go with with of the Morton children for us poor confused readers who are seriously behind the times and thought there were only 10 grandbabies. :)
