Happy Thanksgiving from Garcia Family and Creative Creatures Photography

A good friend once told me, "You only have your kids for a small amount of time. You have to cherish every moment." I remember this every time my boys reach for a hug or leave a mess in their room. I savor the hugs and use patience with the mess. I only have them for a small moment of time. In a blink of an eye, they'll be in high school then off to live their own lives.

Looking at our recent family photos by Creative Creatures Photography, I can't help but tear up looking at my grown up boys! They are not babies anymore.

My cousin, Wena Lee, owner of Creative Creatures Photography, did a great job at capturing our family's personality. With two squirmy little boys, it's often challenging to get a decent picture, but Wena caught my boys at their best.

I've always loved the colors at the Spanish Village at Balboa Park. I always thought the multicolored walkways, as well as the brightly painted facades were perfect for a fun, lively photo shoot. The colors, for me, are symbolic of the many facets of our lives: God, work and school, individual pastimes, and shared interests.

This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for my loving husband and my two loving boys. God has blessed me with a home filled with happiness, laughter, and love. We are blessed in abundance and have to remember to always to give thanks to Him. I am thankful for the love of family and friends, as well as my rewarding career as a school counselor. I am thankful for the opportunities, experiences, and new friends I've made through my blog. 

Thanks to Wena and Creative Creatures Photography for capturing this moment in time in our family.
