I'm thankful for California and all it's sunny warm weather, which I enjoyed thoroughly over Thanksgiving weekend.
I'm thankful for memories of climbing this crazy bridge at the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park as a little girl and for my little family for humoring my need for a picture of us standing on top of it.
I'm thankful for my awesome oldest sister who hosted Thanksgiving at her house this year. You know, Ann, we never did lounge on the landing...hmm....next year. :)
I'm thankful for a family whose bonding activities include things like Cupcake Wars. Robyn and I made strawberry maple breakfast cupcakes, complete with bacon! Mom and Teanca made sweet potato cupcakes with toasted marshmallows and pecans. Both were unique, but also surprisingly good!
I'm thankful for a holiday that's all about eating really yummy food. Lots of it...and being grateful, too.
I'm grateful for cutie-patootie nieces and nephews who can be friends with Will. Don't you just love his laughing face below?
I'm grateful for an awesome niece (bigger than the ones above) who loves to hold her cousin and give his mommy a break for awhile. By the end of the 5 days we were there, however, she told her mom, "Babies are a lot of work." So I've heard. :)
Most of all, I'm thankful for my dream of a life with my little family. I couldn't ask for more.
Oh, and I'm thankful for my bearded husband, who is now clean shaven again. :)
