My Thanksgiving Post

Lots of bloggers are writing beautiful posts about all the things they're thankful for, and I tear up when I read them. But when I try to write a similar post, it just doesn't work. I'm not really a sappy, sentimental type - at least not in my writing.

Here are the reasons I'm thankful, in pictures.

Elizabeth - for being the best surprise baby and for making our lives happier

Ella - for being a great kid and a good big sister (even if she does like to take upside-down pictures of herself when she gets her hands on my camera).

Brandon - for being a great husband and father and for making me laugh on a daily basis.

Lily - for being my twirly, girly, freckle-nosed Bear.

Campbell - for being his nutty, loving, funny little self and for taking close-up pictures of his nose every time he gets his hands on my camera.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all. May your day be filled with fun, family and lots and lots of pie.

I can't do the thankful post either. Some things feel better played close to the vest. Have a wonderful thanksgiving.

I'm not the sappy type either but managed a thankful post. You've done it in spades. You have five gorgeous blessings right there. Hope you had a wonderful day.

This is a wonderful thankful post. Think of all the thousands of words you didn't have to write! :) Plus I love that 2 of the photos are ones they took themselves.
