Every year we gather ’round with friends, food, drinks, and games, and slow down long enough to just laugh and enjoy each other’s company. This year we missed some key players, but had some friends who had never been to a Thankschristmas before. The great thing (one of the many great things!) about my group of friends is that anyone can join in and they fit perfectly! If you can come up with a funny response to “Things you shouldn’t name a children’s book,” then you’re golden. By the way, the winner for that prompt was Allie with “The Birds and the Bees; a Pop-Up Picture Book.”
I’ve been completely slacking when taking pictures around family and friends in the past year. I love to have physical evidence of memories and fun times, but I never want capturing those memories to surpass the actual moment when it happens. You know what I mean? But I have been trying to make more of an effort to photograph things in my life every since Lucy was born. Now I’d like to actually print out the photos (which I haven’t really done since the advent of Facebook!) so that one day Lucy will know her parents weren’t always sticks-in-the-mud…. not that she’ll ever think that we are…. Right?
