Photo-A-Day Challenge: Thanksgiving Week

November 23: I'm Thankful for...Reading Time
I have fond memories of my mom reading to me as a child, and I LOVED watching her bond with my boys the same way while my parents were in town this week. :)

November 24: I'm Thankful for...Grandpa Snuggles
These boys love their grandpa, especially when he watches cartoons with them.

November 25: I'm Thankful for...First Times
Wednesday was a day of firsts for Will: a visit with Santa, petting a reindeer, and his first trip to the movie theater. There is something magic about watching him experience things for the first time.

November 26: I'm Thankful for...Family Traditions
Thanksgiving was full of family and traditional foods that hold so many memories of past holidays together, like my mom's apple sausage dressing.

November 27: I'm Thankful for...Family

My parents asked me to take a couple of pictures of them for their Christmas cards. This one especially makes me happy. At first, they just look like they're smiling, but if you look close, you can see the mischief in my dad's eyes (he was tickling my mom), and my mom's laughing eyes/exasperation at my dad's tricks. They are my constant example of the kind of marriage I want to have.

First Christmas story of the year:

November 28: I'm Thankful for...a LITTLE snow
Just enough for a mini snow man, but not enough to make the roads too dangerous.

November 29: I'm Thankful for...Christmas Tree Lights, one of my favorite parts of the Christmas season.
