As he named each of them their names were written on the hands that I had cut out and placed together. The project really was going to be a turkeys, but it evolved into something more simplistic and meaningful: thanksgiving. He continue to elaborate and include things that surprised me like: love and blankets; and things that didn't surprise me like: Disneyland, his tiger, and books. Overall, I thought it was a very memorable event and a good way to kick of Thanksgiving.
On this day I choose to reflect on what I am most thankful for: I am thankful for a loving God, for my husband, my two children, my expansive family of blood and 'adopted' individuals... because some of my friends that I have known for decades are a part of my family and are so much more than friends to me. I am thankful for my friends, the military and the opportunities it has afforded my family. I am thankful for the job(s) my husband has. I am thankful that I am able to be a SAHM. I am thankful for the ability to dabble in many hobbies including sewing, crafting, and photography and I am very thankful that Loving Husband puts up with all of them and funds them. ;-)
I took the opportunity the other day to indulge in a little photography. Christmas is coming and I needed to get some photo-related gifts ordered while the deal was still good and so I needed to get some Christmas photos done of the kids. So I broke out the studio, lighting, and props and got to work. The kids were mostly compliant and afterwards I had (and still am having) fun editing the selection of photos that I gathered of the kids. Enjoy a brief glimpse into our holiday selection of photos - more to come!
