for about the past 8 or so years i’ve used my oldest sibling power to force the younger ones to take a picture on Thanksgiving. 2011 was plaid themed. which i find ridiculously adorable. it’s funny to me that none of these clothes were bought for this picture. we own and wear all of these items on a regular basis. well, Ethan’s shirt was borrowed from Joel. and Kara’s dress is really her Christmas present. i let her wear it for the pictures and then she gave it back to me to wrap. ha! these pictures mean so much to me every year. i can’t really even imagine how much they will mean to all of us in about 50 years. makes my heart happy. this is the reason family pictures are so important. they mean a lot now, but as time passes, they will mean more than ever. Joel, Laura, Nick, Aaron, Ethan, Kara, and Christa… i love you all to the moon and back.

p.s. and duh i had to add a picture of Leela, our one eyed cat (any Futurama fans out there?) because she’s too cuuuuuute.

blessed doesn’t say the half of it. i was so excited this morning to wake up and have another chance at living this crazy, beautiful life. so to celebrate the wonderful things in my world, i’m giving away a few things that make me super, super happy!

– $25 gift card to The Container Store. my obsession with containers is a bit ridiculous to most people. i love to stash things (and then promptly forget where the “safe place” that I stashed them is. But that’s besides the point).

– $20 gift card to Panera. i refer to this amazing place as My 2nd Office. you can often find me sitting next to the fire place drinking my 978th cup of Hazelnut coffee just about every other day. i try not to like that place so much, but i just can’t help it. and there are no signs of breaking this bad habit anytime soon.

– OPI Glitter Nail Polish “Spark-tacular.” I don’t think this requires a description of why i love it. For real, people. it’s glitter and it’s OPI. It automatically equals loads of fun. obviously.
