    Thanksgiving wishes & greetings also come from the great Northern part of our lovely Province. Enjoy your day my Canadian QB friends. Going to be gorgeous up here in Timmins, Ontario. Just might get 18 holes of golf in BEFORE dinner today !! Course is closing tomorrow. Going to be a long winter.

    We actually celebrated last week end with SIL's parents. It was DGD#2's birthday and my DH's birthday a couple of days ago, so we decided to put everything together. His mom made a fantastic turkey and ham dinner and we had a lovely visit. Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving and for all of you who are traveling, please please take extra care.

    Canadians have it right to have the Thanksgiving in October. Gives the cooks time to recuperate before Christmas cooking. Smart thinking! Enjoy the day, Canucks!

    Happy Thanksgiving! We celebrated yesterday. Two plates of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, green beans, corn.... and a sampling of about 10 different salads (everybody that had the option of bringing either a salad or a vegetable dish chose a salad). I had no room for the assortment of lovely desserts .

    There were about 35 of us. My mom still reigns as the matriarch. She is 87. It was too noisy for her newly adjusted hearing aids, so she took them out!

    Next turkey feast - Christmas!

    While I am not Canadian nor do I play on tv
    I wish all of our neighbors to the north a happy, hearty family (if you like them) filled day. And enough leftovers to to keep you satisfied in the coming days.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    yesterday I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my family and our extended family. I think there was about 35 of us and we were also celebrating my Aunt and Uncle's 50th Wedding anniversary. We had it all...Turkey ham, squash, lots of veggies, apple pie, strawberry rhubarb pie, elderberry pie, pumpkin pie, cherry pie.....and Death by Chocolate!!! Oh so yummy!!! To day I celebrate with my DH, the butterball will be going in soon!!!
