I am thankful for rosy baby cheeks, kittens and having my husband home.

It was Axel’s first Thanksgiving. Mike was home from a road trip. We had less than 24 hours before he left for his next road trip. But we soaked every moment in together as a family.

We celebrated low-key style – as we usually do with Thanksgiving and Christmas in our house. That means sweat pants are a nonnegotiable. Well, except for Axel. I let him slide with just his socks and a diaper because he’s stinkin’ cute. Banana tried to out do us all with her fresh new lion cut hairdo. That’s so like her. She’s still my angel kitten though, and she knows it.
