{November 29, 2011}   Weekly Photo Challenge:FAMILY

You may have noticed I missed last week’s photo challenge. I debated whether to do last week’s or not and finally just skipped it. The theme was “Breakfast” and I considered taking pictures of breakfast and kept forgetting…..I couldn’t think of anything really creative to substitute for real food and to be honest, I didn’t really WANT to come up with anything. Last week was busy spending time with family and everything and my blog fell to the background for the most part. I’ve gotten behind on reading and commenting on other blogs due to the holidays and everything and sorry to those I haven’t got around to looking at. I WILL eventually get caught up but the holidays are going to be a time where other than posting daily, I’m just not going to be on my A game with reading and commenting. I apologize ahead of time and hopefully once the holidays are over with, I can get back to staying caught up once and for all.

I have shown pictures of family before in other posts, but here are some I picked out for this theme. Hope you enjoy! 🙂

I could just do a blog full of pictures of my family…..I love all of these people so much! 🙂


Giving Thanks Day 29: Today, I am so thankful that I am going to get to see my oldest niece and my two great nephews this Christmas…I have not seen them since July 2009 when I got married! I am getting the best Christmas gift of all this year in getting to see ALL my nieces, my nephew AND my great nephews for Christmas….that is just all I wanted and wished for and the best gift of all! There are no amount of words to express how blessed and thankful I feel right now. I just am so excited and I can NOT wait until they are in for Christmas! YAY! 🙂

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
