Thanksgiving, eh?

Canadians celebrate thanksgiving the first Monday in October. Due to our varied schedules, our family rarely celebrates on the actual day, but we do still love to get together, eat turkey and pumpkin pie, and spend time being thankful for one another. Here are some lovely pictures from our Thanksgiving a week ago.

Dad, prepping the mammoth turkey (I asked him if he was sure it wasn't an ostrich)


The buffet table


We all went for a pre-meal walk, it was such a beautiful fall day
Here's Dad and Caleb, walking the dogs


They look like our siblings, but it's actually Mom and Dad

Us, enjoying the sunshine (and Caleb hating his picture being taken)


Handsome couple, eh?
The great thing about being an American living in Canada (other than the healthcare, of course), is that I get to enjoy two thanksgivings most years. And we don't even have to figure out which side of the family we are going to spend it with! It's very convenient, I reccommend it to everyone. ;)
