I hope that everybody had a wonderful Thanksgiving & that the year brought you plenty to be thankful for. I know that you have all been inundated with posts filled with Thanksgiving photos & stories, but I am sorry, because I am about to share one more.

I feel very blessed. Life isn’t always perfect but I have two of the greatest thing in the world to be thankful for.

I love this time of year. The holidays are all about family & building memories. I like many people, like to capture all of these moments with my camera. I have to admit I am a little out of control with it. I take pictures of everything. I’m sure it drives my family crazy but they never show it.

Mai is at a wonderful age right now. The excitement of the holidays, the laughter, the food & being surrounded by all of her loved ones, fills her with such exuberance and joy. It is a beautiful thing to watch. So what mommy could resist preserving these moments.

Here are a few of my favorites from today…

My favorite moment of the day…

LOVE1

While on the car ride to my sister-in-law’s house, I sat in the back with my daughter. At one pint during the ride, she grabbed my hand & said “friends” & didn’t let go for the whole ride.

These are memories that I will never forget, but there is nothing like a photograph to bring back the feelings of that day. All too often though, our family photos end up getting lost in the computer or in an old shoe box. Last month I was inspired to make a Halloween scrapbook page, https://thepinterestedparent.wordpress.com/2013/10/31/halloween-scrapbooking/ . I am feeling inspired again.

Cut out shapes or various fruits & vegetables using the same principles as with the horn. For mine, I made an apple,corn,grapes,a gourd, some leaves & a pumpkin, that I used for my photo mount.

Make a mat for you photo of choice. I chose to mount mine into a cut out of a pumpkin. To achieve a circular mat, I used a round Tupperware container to trace out the shape & cut it.
