Treasure Chest Thursday - Thanksgiving, 1986

By far, one of my favorite memories is that of Thanksgiving, 1986.  You see, just a month before, I had given birth to our first child, our son, Daniel.  On Thanksgiving, my father's family was planning on being at my parent's home for dinner, where they would meet our new addition for the first time.  I can remember being so excited as I dressed Daniel for the day and gathered all the needed "baby equipment" for our trip "down the street and up the hill" to his grandmother's house.  We were welcomed with much excitement and joy and I can still hear those voices filled with love and laughter.  After dinner, we posed for some family pictures, including the 4 generation photograph of my father, my grandmother, myself, and Daniel.  A few weeks later, my aunt had the photograph published in the Wilmington News-Journal in Clinton County, Ohio.  The article with the photograph of Daniel cradled in my grandma's arms is truly one of my "treasures" even if the newspaper did reverse Daniel's first and middle names!
