I am thankful for...
My amazing husband. He really is my other (and often times better) half. I love that he makes me smile/laugh each and every day and he knows me better than anyone else (although Liane is a very close second). We have grown up together and shared so many wonderful, once-in-a-lifetime experiences. He is an amazing father to our precious little girl and my absolute best friend. His hard work allows me to be at home with Kaitlyn and I am so thankful for this precious time with her. Thank you for being my prince charming, babe! xo
Motherhood. I feel so lucky that I have been blessed with the miraculous gift of a child. My love for that little girl is indescribable.
Employment. I am quite thankful that Ron has a job that offers so much to our family. Most importantly, it puts food on our table and a roof over our heads. We are so blessed that his work also allows us to travel. I hate that we are so far from family, but I am thankful for the opportunity to experience and see so much of this beautiful world.
I could go on and on. I hope you and your family have countless things to be thankful for. And that you are thankful for them each day, not just on Thanksgiving.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
The local American International School held their annual holiday bazaar today. There have been a lot of holiday bazaars here in the past couple of weeks, but I was excited for this one because Santa and Mrs. Claus were going to be there! I couldn't wait to get Kaitlyn's first picture with Santa. Although, as most of you know, Kaitlyn does not do well with strangers, so I wasn't expecting a warm and fuzzy introduction.
Ron held Kaitlyn as he walked up to Santa and as he got closer, Kaitlyn's grip on his shirt got tighter. We didn't have lots of time to warm her up to him because of the line, so we had to be quick about it. Kaitlyn immediately showed her dislike for the jolly old man and I got exactly the type of picture I expected for her first photo with Santa...tear-filled. I took the photo below on my own camera.
