Veterans Day

Having married a former Air Force guy myself, I know quite a few people who have served in active duty. Many of those people have risked their lives places faraway and sacrificed it all for the freedom of our great nation.

Today, we honor you all. Thank you.

We also have someone near and dear to our hearts that is celebrating another Veterans Day. Elliot's grandfather, Lyn Sturdevant. We call him Papa and to our kids, he's Great Papa.

My Dad's brother, Uncle Don, passed away this past year and he, too, was a veteran. We honor the late Donald Richardson here, too. And so many, many others.

In my attempt to take the cutest photo ever, I present you with the two most uncooperative children on the planet. They don't understand Veterans Day or why it's important to humble yourselves to honor someone else just yet. But, I hope that someday they will truly understand how noble these veterans are. Maybe they, too, will choose to defend their country someday.

two tantrums, 1.5 hours, 3 poses, Countless mom acrobatics to try and convince them to smile.
Let's just say... Mom: 0, Kids: 1

I love the outtakes. They are so cute when they're uncooperative!
