Hypocritical Time!

Story time. I hate when people talk about their boyfriends on their blogs/twitter/insta....

but that's all I do.

I am so sad.

We call this "Slurpee Duck Face Selfie"

Also known as, "Going To Watch Haven Instead Of Doing Homework."

From Thanksgiving 2011 when I was still new to the whole "photography" thing

My Grandpa Ray was one of my favourite people.
And he definitely still is!
He was an amazing cook, always trying something new.
He even indulged in all my little girl fantasies of being a famous TV Chef,
and let me put on cooking shows in the kitchen.
We watched the Food Network together for as long as I can remember.
When we moved back to the US, he put on a huge dinner in celebration,
and made everyone their own little game hens
(which made me so sad, but so happy at the same time)
He was also great at cuddling me when I was sad,
and singing little silly songs,
and being a really, really great person.

I never wrote about any of this one my last blog with Kirs,
but Thanksgiving 2011 was the last time I ever saw this wonderful man.
We didn't know that he was sick yet.
He made such an amazing meal that year,
with everyone so happy and together.
Then he passed away that March.

I was so worried about Thanksgiving this year.
Last year was the first year without him, and our family didn't get together.
Everyone else went to their in laws, and we just stuck together at home in WA.
But this year, I wanted to stay with Grandma.
So my family came here, and brought Kyle.
Then my local cousins came too.
The food was so good and we did puzzles and played games and ate pie, just like before.
It wasn't really like before, though.
I missed my Grandpa a whole lot.
But it was wonderful just the same.
And I'm thankful for that.
