Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed!

Thumbsucking lesson from Grandpa.

By George, I think she's got it!

Ahhh, objective achieved... thumbs and Grandpas rock.

So do big sisters.

And Great-Grandmas. The oldest and youngest members of the Benedict side of the family: Ellinor Learned Benedict (87)holding Sarah Brecken Hamilton (7 days.)

Four generations in the direct family line:
Ellinor Benedict, Ellinor Hamilton (er, that would be me, aka Ellie) holding Sarah Hamilton, Jonathan Hamilton holding Abigail Hamilton.

Hand-in-hand on the Life Trail: Great-Grandma Benedict and Sarah Hamilton.

Precious! Love the photos. And your mom is looking great. Have you played the Rach yet?

I know you must be treasuring these days.

Not much that's worth leaving Texas for, but you found it! Great pictures--of course, all of yours are!

Ben, Nate and Beth met their great-grandparents on Steve's side--really neat. I wish we had more pictures!
