aww daddy i love you too!
btw ehemm did i SAY you could use that photo
sorry i am still a teenager
and i can't wait for the festivities tomorrow

Same to you and your family, Danny! I am so happy that things are going well for your family. You definitely deserve it! Material things are nice to have, but there is nothing like having a healthy family. I am thankful that my husband survived his stroke. Therapy is helping, but he is officially unemployed as of this week, and it's going to be tough times, but we will make it. Enjoy your day!!

Perfect, Danny! I just sat in traffic for way too long to pick-up Chinese, before a week of turkey this and that. I thought, why am I doing this? I am doing it for my kids. (And so I do not hear Turkey Again!?!) Yours kids are beautiful! Happy Holidays to you all!

Happy Gratitude Day! Best wishes from Minnesota.

Much love to you, Kendall and Charlie! I wish I lived closer....I miss you guys. :-)

Wishing you and yours a VERY Happy Thanksgiving, Danny!

I am grateful to know you and to acknowledge that we are Hollywood Park family! Much Love, Susie

Absolutely lovely. Have a great holiday!


I am so happy for you!

Have a great holiday with your family, start new traditions, love each other and eat great food!

Wishing you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Someone earlier said it perfectly: "Your posts always remind me how thankful I am for my own family, now matter how precarious it feels to love them so much, and for that I am thankful." Yup. Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. I just looked up the word "Inspiration" in Webster's and there was a pic of you all!

Dear Danny,
What beautiful pictures !
Thanks for sharing your life with all of us, through your always interesting and entertaining (and sometimes heart wrenching) blog.
A very happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

As usual you have captured it brillantly! Have a great day with the family. I am blessed to have gotten to know you all through this forum. Happy Thanksgiving and many blessings for the future!

The middle photo of the beautiful young woman with milk skin and red hair--in my WASP dreams, I look just like her. I am that bland looking sort of Scotts-Irish stock. My skin is white, but my hair, without my hairdresser, would be almost the worst shade of brown/black.

Never be sorry you are still a teenager, young woman. It is terribly difficult to be one now-a-days. But you will be older soon enough.

Best wishes and Happy Thanksgiving. We aren't having traditional turkey--I have been up all night making lasagna. Taking Calvin Trillin's suggestion and eating something different.

I'm thankful that your growing Charlie Boy still fits into that green sweater!! You have a lovely family and lots to be thankful for! Have a marvelous family celebration, Danny!

I've only checked in occasionally, as Annie Gottlieb links, partly as self-preservation, so pardon if I'm off a tic. That NICU experience is real and lasting. To get entwined in anyone's NICU saga almost feels like reliving it myself. One benefit of a NICU baby...they are well regimented and usually fast eaters and you have an extended babyhood.

God's blessings to your whole family and that fighter, Charlie. I hope all goes well for you all. 'Normal' takes on a whole new look after surviving the NICU.

Oy - you brought tears to my eyes, once again.

How many ways can I say, the boy is sooooo adorable.

Aw Charlie is looking so sweet and bonny! Sending a virtual lil pinch across the ocean to those beautiful cheeks (and as a fellow NICU survivor those hands are obviously anti bacterially gel-ed to the max!)

What a gorgeous family you have. Happy holidays xo


Lo-He-Ha today~ yesterday~ and always to you, Kendall, Leah, Charlie and all your extended family on your blog~


Best wishes to your family. One of the things I'm thankful for is your blog. It is a wonderful reminder to give thanks... Not in a "there but for the grace of God" sort of way, but in a reminder of all the good people in the world, of the choices everyday your family has made to keep going with gratitude. Have a wonderful rest of the weekend. Hell, have a wonderful rest of your lives!

Wonderful to see that everything is as it should be. Normal. Content. Good. Best wishes for your first family Thanksgiving for four.

Happy Thanksgiving For The Whole Year
By D.K.Milgrim-Heath
Happy Thanksgiving for every full year-
God protected your Charlie so that's clear.
Very much home now your son is with you-
That's daddy,mommy plus big sister Leah too.
Once I was a preemie 1pd.11OZ. 56 years ago-
God's worked miracles also with me-
He did that with your darling Charlie.
So all of you can now fully rejoice-
Praise God thankfully with your voice!

Wonderful photos! Your family is simply beautiful. Kendall's glasses are very, very cool. If I were a modeling agent [and darnit, I"m not...], I'd sign Leah in seconds. Seconds.
