Each year I try to write a post on the day before Thanksgiving detailing all that I have been thankful for in the past year. This year, however, I am crazy busy (thankful!) and somewhat behind, so I’m going to have to wait until next week to post my thoughts. Happily, however, I can apply my thankful-ness to Will and Reid, who make me smile just by existing. I’ve known them forever and while I don’t see them as often as I would like, when we got together a few weeks ago, we picked up right where we left off, which was with the both of them ruling the universe.
We got a bit of a late start, so I dragged them deep into the woods near their house where I spotted one tiny little patch of lingering light.
Even after we lost that sun, they still lit up for me.
Parents Patty and Lance moved into a new house at the beginning of this year; this great little stone building on the property was a perfect setting for some relaxed portraits. Reid was a perfect subject.
And Will (a.k.a. mini-Lance) is such a stunner.
Willing to have leaves dumped on them.
We took a whole lot of jumping photos — this one just cracks me up.
This shows that there’s still a touch of little boy in Reid.
Will’s definitely long beyond the little boy stage.
Patty, Lance, Will, and Reid — thankful doesn’t even begin to describe it.
