Everything feels extra special this year, celebrating all of Baby Satski’s firsts. Here are some scenes from his first Thanksgiving at Ojii and Oba’s house. His face with my mother-in-law’s homemade apple pie is priceless. And this is the day after; if you look closely, you’ll see his pants are unbuttoned. Already a pro at this holiday! Not pictured here is the tough time our family’s recently been through with the passing of beloved relatives. Our holiday fell in between two funerals. So even though we’re smiling here, we’re also mourning. I’m counting my blessings and thinking a lot about life and how important it is to cherish family. I guess I just wanted to share that there’s more going on than what’s presented on the surface.
