Thanksgiving 2014

Twenty- three brave souls attended Thanksgiving celebrations on the canal this weekend.  The weather cooperated, but it was not warm enough to eat outside.  We managed, though.  Everyone found their comfortable spot to sit.  There were no complaints.

This thanksgiving we have much to be thankful for.  Poppy has been under the water lately, but he was able to drop in for a meal and we all agree that his presence made our day.  Here he is....the most senior...with the most junior member of our family.

Alex brought along his girlfriend, Olivia.  We did not scare her off...in spite of the noise and confusion!

We managed a boat ride, but man....was it cold!

A quick hello to the neighbour, and then it's time to say "good-bye."  

"Finn" all cosied in for the trip home.

My family heard it again this year...."I am so thankful for each and every one of you.  You enrich my life beyond measure."  Love you all!,


  1. Such a wonderful family and a fun holiday for you all!

  2. What a lovely, big family you have! That last photo of Finn is just precious. He reminds me of a little papoose.

  3. Thank you both! We do have a large, wonderful family, I never dreamed a day would come when I'd have 9 grandchildren....and another on the way!!

    I am grateful every day!
