Mommy Monday: Family

October 20, 2014

My weekend in photos. 

The birthday boy and one seriously bundled baby! 

L to R: Jessica (sister), dad, Bill (brother), mom, Joshua, Penny, and me of course 

Grandma hopped in the photo. Gramps was inside watching the Ohio State game. 

My sibs, 

my loves. 

Nothing warms me up better this time of year than being surrounded by the ones I love. I am absolutely blessed to have such a large, caring, mostly obnoxious family. My only brother turned thirteen yesterday. A sad reality I'm still refusing to except. We celebrated Saturday, at my aunt's. They live in the country surrounded by crisp oaks and towering evergreens. Their little brick house is typically where we hold our family gathers due to it's warm, cozy appeal and central meeting point.

Saturday was ideal for bonfires and crock pot meals. After our bellies were full of warm soups and comforting french bread, we all gathered around the fire for marshmallows and conversation. It's those moments in life you realize you'll never get back once their gone. Not a day goes by that I'm not thankful for my family. And hey maybe one of these photos will be Christmas card worthy?

Check Back tomorrow for some family recipes! 

How was your weekend?
