Thanksgiving Day

This weekend is Thanksgiving weekend in Canada. A weekend to spend time with the ones you love, being thankful and eating until you can't eat another bite!

Our first feast is tomorrow at my Mum's house with Mark, Patricia and their clan of 6. Mum is making roast beef so that poor M & P don't get turkey overload (they have FOUR family Thanksgiving dinners to attend). On Monday, I will be cooking my world famous roast turkey for Mum, MIL and my four boys. The dinner will consist of delicious roast turkey, stuffing, sausage meat, Yorkshire puddings, carrots, broccoli, peas and gravy. Dessert will be homemade apple cake, English Trifle (courtesy of Mum) and a strawberry mango pie from Al Ferri's apple farm. The wine, of course, will be flowing freely, as it always does on our special occasions. I cannot WAIT!

This year, our newest family member, Milo, will be attending. He is the cutest, most amazingly intelligent little Cavalier King Charles Spaniel you ever did meet. He is 10 weeks old and we have all fallen in love with him. How could we not:



He is Mum's new "son"...my "brother" and the boys jokingly call him, "Uncle Milo". LOL! Mum bought him as a retirement gift to herself. She retired on September 30th and I think she made an excellent decision with this little man. He is just what the doctor ordered! :)

I will probably do another post today with all of things I am thankful for. Right now, I feel so blessed with all the love I feel for my friends and family. So much to be thankful for...I don't want it to be a drive-by post...I want to think it out a little.

Happy Thanksgiving Day everyone! I hope your hearts are full of love and your bellies are full of good food! Pin It
