Post Thanksgiving

Here's hoping that everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Ours was phenominal.

It started with a little playgroup (ok, big playgroup) with some great friends and their kids. And the kids, for the most part, played very happily together! Which is surprising considering the toys splayed all over the floor and the fact that they all haven't been together in quite a while. It was great. So nice to be able to chat with friends and share. I also love to have company over, so it was fun for me in that aspect ;)

After a hockey practice Saturday night and a game on Sunday morning, the Turkey started. We headed out to one of my Husbands cousins for lunch on Sunday. We were told it was at 12:30, but when we arrived everyone was almost done eating. A little strange, but oh well, it was a good visit.

Sunday night, we were getting ready for a rest when our neighbours asked us over for a drink while they got their Turkey ready. Well, drinks turned into dinner and we had a fabulous night with them and their friends. We even got to try out the dance machine (play station), which looks easy, but you have to get your feet exactly on the arrows :( .

Monday morning, I was up early putting the bird in the oven and getting ready for our feast here. Oh! I forgot to mention, my littest (she is 21) sister flew in for a surprise on Sunday to spend Thanksgiving here, she hasn't been here for Thanksgiving for three years so it was great. She came early to help me out and together we made pie and pototoes and turnip. Yum!

So all in all, we ate way too much Turkey in 24 hours. But, truth be told it was the time spent with friends, neighbours, family that was the most important. I can't remember the last time I had so much fun with so many different people over the course of a weekend. It was truly great. Once again, I am reminded of how blessed we are, and for this I am Thankful this year.

Cheers!
