canadian thanksgiving/our thanksgiving

We celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving back in October- to me it was the perfect time of year, perfect weather(we could eat outside), wonderful food(grilled turkey), great fellowship(with friends that you could stay up all night laughing with).

Hoping our Thanksgiving will be just as good and warm enough for me to haul the kids to the Thanksgiving Day Parade.
I love how this picture makes it look like I did all the cooking and the hard work.

latest member of the family

Meet Sophie
We surprised Pearl with a bunny!!!
I won't tell you the entire story, but lets just say cinnamon(her hamster) "ran away" and we promised her that when she turned 8 (9 months from now) she could have a bunny.
Yes, a little early- but because she wasn't expecting it it was so much fun!!
She was so happy she cried and cried.
This picture is after a few days when the shock wore off.

cinnamon rolls

the cool weather outside, brings me inside to bake.
I might regret this later, but they sure were delicious.
