I realize it's odd to title this post Thanksgiving when the photos are full of Christmas trees and gifts. We just came off of a week full of family. (My parents are in from the Philippines, and my brother's family came down from the Philadelphia area.) As is often the case when we have family in town, I barely have time for any photos, much less time to post to my blog. Over the days we spent with extended family we celebrated Thanksgiving, celebrated Christmas with my brother's family, put up 2 Christmas trees, played games until late in the evening, and spent a day at my Grandmother's house (with aunts, uncles, and cousins). Although I have few photos to show for it, I have a heart full of love and gratitude for the time we spent together. I'm always amazed and thankful for the interaction between my kids and my brother's kids. Those cousins love each other to pieces and enjoy playing together in a way that makes my heart smile.
