the moments in my life,
in our lives
a year of thanksgiving
my heart is full
Eliza's village storefront shops... darling
Emily's little Alpine ski chalet ...
Keith stayed up late after we all went to bed, finishing the construction (and ever-so-careful attention to detail that he is known for) of this awesome multi-level masterpiece.
Isaac's charming "log cabin in the woods"...
We all gathered yesterday to celebrate the wedding of Clarissa (daughter of my sister Felicia) and Lucas. Even with the snowy winter weather, it was such a beautiful, memorable day.
Spending that happy time with my family-- witnessing the tender smiles and tears during the marriage ceremony, a wet and fun photo session on the Salt Lake Temple steps, stopping for cinnamon rolls to tide us over until the luncheon (and me getting a little sketching session in while I waited), taking in the holiday spirit of downtown, lending a hand at the reception later that evening-- all of these moments have brought me extra Christmas joy this year.
And I'm so thankful.
