{Thankful Today} 19-28 Dec: Catching up

The year is drawing to a close, and this is just to play catch up for the remaining photos I've snapped but yet to blog about for Thankful Today: 

:: 19 Dec, Round: I am so thankful we got to make our rounds for the Christmas markets in town, which Germany is so famous for. I don't like the commercial aspect of the season, but I do love how Christmas does give us an opportunity to share about the reason for the season, plus savour good times with family and friends. And of course, Junior J is especially thrilled that almost every market he visits has a carousel!

:: 20-21 Dec, 7 o'clock, Dinner: Mealtimes recently became a battle with the little one, and I'm glad we've found out one reason for his restlessness. This little kiddo has decided that he wants to feed himself! So now we give him chunks of food to self-feed, and sometimes a bowl and spoon, and most of the food more or less goes in. I'm thankful that he's actually very willing to stuff strips of chicken into his mouth and chomp on them with his 8 little teeth!

:: 22 Dec, Room: I'm also very glad that the boys have lots of room to play in our place over here. And am also thankful for all that room in their heart to forgive and love their parents.

Recently, they decided that the fridge made a great hideout,
especially since it came with 3 compartments and doors to lift!

:: 24 Dec, Star: We spent time choosing decorations for the tree, and this one was picked out by Junior J for his brother, who is fascinated by stars (and "star" happens to be one of baby J's first words as well). It is also a lovely reminder of that star that shone to herald Christ coming down as a baby!

:: 28 Dec, Where I walked: We really have been blessed to be able to travel so much this year, and it was wonderful exploring Prague together at the end of the year. We had a lovely time watching the sun set from Charles Bridge, as well as looking at all those swans on the banks of the river.

And so, 2012 is almost done. What are you thankful for about this year?


Join us in giving thanks this December! Details and the list of thankful topics are in this post. (If you are writing more than one post in a week, do include the date of your post when you add your linky!)
