Perk #93586 of Being a Firefighter’s Kid

The holiday season has officially arrived. At least it has here. Our annual Christmas parade was tonight. There were two highlights for my family.


Obviously, hanging out with Santa at the fire station before the parade was pretty cool. And then…


Parade Time

Riding in the ladder truck with Santa Claus was pretty cool, too.

There are perks to being a firefighter’s kid. (And many, many wonderful, heart-warming perks to being a firefighter’s wife. And photographer. Happy sigh.)

Happy Thanksgiving

We are so thankful this year. Well, we’re thankful every year. But this year my heart is just very full. Mainly because these two little boys aren’t just two little boys.

Pilgrim & Indian

They’re brothers.



We’re thankful for our families. Our jobs. Our friends. Our home. Our coffee (I’m honest). Our food. We’re also thankful for the laughter in our home, some of which is brought about by this guy.

That said, the boys alternated, one after the other, saying “gobble” the whole way to my in laws’ house today. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’m thankful that moment is over. Ahem.

We’re also thankful for the fire department, our second family, where FireDad is celebrating today. We’ll see him later.

Happy Thanksgiving!
