V. K. Wilson - Everytime I look at these pictures, I’m always reminded of how beautiful families can really be. You know,
I can’t believe how much Jasmine has grown since I saw her last Xmas. And to me — certainly all grand parents think so — she just becomes more beautiful each day.

I love the way you and Dwaune include your pet dogs in your family photos. After all, they also are a part of your family.

I love every one of them because all of you are so precious in my sight and in God’s sight. So, just keep those pictures rolling!!
