For my fifth and final entry of my 5 Day B & W Photo Challenge, and since it’s Thanksgiving Day today in the US, I wanted to share a photograph that I absolutely love and includes the three people I am most thankful for in my life — Nicki, Kate and Sparky.

Made the day after Sparky was born, Kate gets to hold her brother for the first time.  She really wanted a sister and in fact she told Nicki that if it wasn’t a girl that she could just leave the baby at the hospital.

Well that went away the minute that she met him and she’s been a pretty amazing big sister since then (of course there’s the usual sibling rivalry especially when they’re tired, but they are pretty sweet to the other) — most of the time.

Thanks to Cheryl Evans and Will Austin for nominating me for the #bwchallenge.
