Thankfulness, Day 3

Ok so I really skipped day 3, but with good brother and his family were in town and I spent the day enjoying their company, cooking warm fall foods, huddled in the living room chatting, breaking bread over the candlelit dinner table extended to accomodate our visiting family.  My favorite way to spend a weekend, which brings me to day 3, my family.  I am particularly thankful today for my kids, their health, imaginations, creativity, intelligence, energy (despite how it wears me out sometimes), and especially their love for each other.

Saturday morning, before my brother's family arrived, we spent at the park trying to take photos for our Christmas cards.  Have you ever tried to get 4 kids to look in the same direction with a mostly pleasant expression ALL AT THE SAME TIME?  Not an easy feat.

Playing music doesn't help kids to smile nicely
when they start singing at the top of their lungs...
then tackling one another.

  1. You got some great pictures of your kids at the park! My sister and I tried to take pictures of our kids together (five of them) this summer and I think we got one good one out of hundreds!


I love to hear what you think!
