The Kids at Thanksgiving

While I helped lay out the dishes at our Thanksgiving celebration with our ex-pat friends (mostly co-workers of ML and their families), ML took on the task of getting pictures of the kids in their nice clothes. While they were still nice. So, here are four of the blessings I am thankful for today. Five, if you count the man behind the camera.

Not the best photo of MS, but the best we got today. He actually looked quite dashing. I was particularly proud of the shirt. It's a striped Gap oxford-cloth button down, which I pulled out of a pile at the flea market area in our town where they sell used American and European clothes. It was in perfect condition, didn't look like it had ever been worn, and I paid all of the equivalent of $0.70 for it. Not bad. It's a little big, but that just means it will last him two winters, if not three.

A fairly typical smirky smile from JW.

Not photogenic at all. Nope.

I just loved his posture and expression in this one.

What blessings!

They do, don't they? We've tried putting bricks on their heads, but it doesn't seem to be doing much good. *sigh*
