Oh, Thank Cuteness

Hello & happy belated Thanksgiving to all of you who celebrated! (Happy belated Black Friday to all of you who celebrated that, too : ) We had a great Thankgiving here in the Quilt Dad home -- we hosted family at our house for the first time, and it was a wonderful day. Actually, a wonderful couple of days, since our houseguests arrived on Wednesday and left on Friday!

As for me, I've stayed off of my computer since logging off at the office on Wednesday, and I must say that these last couple of days "unplugged" has been ... blissful. It's a nice reminder that sometimes I need to slow down and take a moment to enjoy time with my family, without the distraction and hamster wheel that my laptop sometimes seems to embody. I have so much to blog about ... but I think it can wait another day or two.

And speaking of my family, I popped in this evening to write a quick note of thanks for them. You see, the team over at GenQ Magazine had a great idea for a blog series called "Oh, Thank Cuteness", where bloggers can simply show off their children, pets, or anything at all that brings cuteness to their lives. The picture above is of my wife, my 7 year-old twin girls, and my 5-year old son, taken about a week and a half ago during a holiday kick-off celebration. (No, the fat guy in the red suit is not me.) Not only are they cute, but they are a true blessing and the best family a guy could ever hope for. I am thankful for them not only during the Thanksgiving season, but on the other 364 days of the year as well.

Want to participate in the "Oh, Thank Cuteness" series? Check out this post over on the GenQ blog, and tell them I said "hi"!
