Thanksgiving this year was celebrated by us at our home. No traveling - no 8 hr car rides - sleeping in our own bed, at least for Thursday. We were able to host our parents for the big meal & spend a few days doing our prep. We had the motivation to get our last few projects finished up around the house. NO MORE BOXES & even parking in our own garage. We have pictures on the walls. ((deep sigh)) The settling IN.has.begun.
Loved being able to bake in my Westie apron b-day gift-to-myself & have my little helpers decorate some pumpkin cheesecake muffins for our big meal. I managed to wrestle a couple of pumpkin pies into submission as well... baking can be such a challenge but I think I'm improving!
I love catching my guys hanging out together. I laugh at my little naked man who has become a bit messy at breakfast & ends up naked for a few minutes now and then.
And I thought he was still learning to get down on his belly... he proved me wrong. 2 seconds flat.
I am remiss for not taking very many photos during some family events&gatherings. I am mostly too consumed with everything going on to snap the pictures that I can in our normal days. Most people take MORE pictures during holidays, me = less. Thankfully, my Dad likes to take pictures & he shares! (more to come...)
My only image of my Thanksgiving table. My little fella & our new buffet. Many things to be thankful for.
Glad to get a pictures of Grammy & Papa snuggling&reading with my little guys. So often the action shots are quick to escape - but gladly I caught up with this one.
Again, my only shots of Thanksgiving dinner at the Proses new house the following weekend - our post-dinner walk&ride with my little scooter. I was glad to be able to celebrate the new house & be together!
Nana & Hayden cruisin' the neighborhood.
Happy Thanks-Giving. Giving Thanks for the small moments & grateful for our family.
