Picture the Holidays-December Daily-Kim Klassen-Texture Tuesday

I'm back at it again this year with the December Daily! We got our first prompt today:

With the giving of thanks still fresh in our hearts and minds, let's start off our month from the best place possible: a place of gratitude.

Take a few minutes to focus on all the things you have to be grateful for today and then, choose a perspective in which to capture at least one of those things in a photograph.

Well I thought about it all day long and of course the first thing that always comes to mind is Josie. After all the trouble we had getting pregnant she is of course our biggest blessing to be grateful for.
I'm pretty sure without looking back at last years though that is what I used. So I was trying to think of a different way to incorporate her without having a literal photo of her.
So I'm thinking "hands". Okay, what could her hands be doing? I of course the one night I NEED her in the house, she decides to go to the garage with Daddy. I was hoping she'd be in a humoring mood for me and of course my little model was. I found an ornament that held more meaning than just an ornament and there we go!

So I am of course thankful for our sweet daughter, our little family and in terms of the ornament, I am thankful for our home! (Couldn't forget it's an actual log cabin!!!)
And to kill two birds with one stone, I'm linking this up to Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday. Of course it's only two days late! :-)
