Thanksgiving Blessing

I was supposed to post these pics just after Thanksgiving, but I kinda got sidetracked with all of the other 9 billion things going on in my life right now. Isn't this time of year so crazy, you guys? We have to make sure everyone is taken care of on the Christmas list, all cards are sent out,(with proper addresses, stamped), and meanwhile I'm trying to keep the shop updated, and then working, and being a mama. . . WHEW! December definitely challenges us!

Initially at Thanksgiving I was bumming because my own little boy was going to be with his dad this year. But when I got home to Mom and Dad's I realized that this was the perfect opportunity to bond with my little nephew, Isaac. I had to share these pictures because I think this little boy's sweetness just shines right through in that smile. (I also had to post these because I promised I would put him "on the computer" so he could see himself) ;)
Here's a funny little snippet about him: While we were all lounging around relaxing for the holiday, he asked me to get him some toast and jam and he had kindly said "please" with his request. I went up to him and said, "Thank you so much, Isaac. I love when little boys use their manners, that makes my heart so happy." He sat at the table for a second lost in thought and a moment later says to me, "Aunt Jessica, how does your heart feel when little boys do naughty things?" As hard as I tried not to laugh, I couldn't help it, I lost it!
silly boy.
Even though he lives 2 hours away, I'm so thankful to have him in my life!

"Aunt Jessica, I can show you my yoga moves."
Showed him some coin tricks.
That smile melts me!!
little rascal!

I wish my family lived closer. I've often thought about moving closer to them, but their internet is so slow (and it's "high" speed) that I'd have to probably give up my little etsy shop. No way, Jose! But it does make the time when we see each other all the more special. ♥


  1. that little boy is such a treasure. His face makes me want to squeeze it! wish my family was a driving distance, mine is 24 hours on a hideous plane trip...though I know even a couple of hours can seem like a lot when you miss 'em!

  2. A, where in the world is your fam? I know you're in NY, but 24 hour plane ride? boooo
    Hope you get to see them this season!

  3. He's super cute! I know how it feels to miss family, I havent seen my sister in a year because she lives in the states and I live in Ireland :(

  4. How cute is he?!

    Sometimes family being a little way away makes you appreciate them more, as much as you might miss them.

  5. Oh how adorable is he! Kids are amazing.

    My boyfriend is from Sweden but we live in Amsterdam; his family is always far away too... We only see them about 2 or 3 times a year; once or twice in the summer and once over the holidays. But it's so great when we get to spend time with them, especially our little nephews and nieces crack me up (they're 3, 4, 5 and 7 years old)

    Merry christmas!


I really appreciate your comments, thank you. ♥
