Happy Thorsday, little friday, Hanukkah, almost Christmas, Thankful Thursday and… anything else I forgot. Yesterday, I learned that hugging a tree is one way to celebrate the solstice. Immediately, I thought of one of my favorite photos of Sissy, taken by her too busy to blog these days Auntie ‘Nita in 2008.
Turns out Gretchen’s been snuggling up to trees since we got her too!
For Thankful Thursday, I’ll share a couple of bloopers from our Christmas card photo shoot. You can see the version I actually used on the girls’ blog.
That’s one of my favorite bloopers… it really kinda’ sums us up well. I’m behind the camera, trying to set it up so I can put the camera on the timer and race to join them, Gretchen is worried about what I’m doing, Sissy is
showing her doing her own thing and we’re all plucking the Knight’s only nerve.
The hydrant? Yes, we posed with the hydrant. The Knight is very proud of his hydrant and I’m just shameless enough to stage the holiday photo by the RED hydrant to make it a little less painful for him.
This one makes me laugh too. Clearly, I didn’t rush enough and there’s nothing happy about it, is there?
This one was the best of everyone… except Sissy. Someone suggested I should have used it anyway, because… well… at our house, Sissy marches to her own drummer and does what she wants.
Regardless, we hope your holidays are filled with laughter and love. We wish you peace and joy, now and always. I’m so thankful for each and every one of you and the thoughts we’ve shared here and there. I’m thankful that 2011 had more ups than downs… but we’ll talk about that later, maybe.
What are you thankful for today?
