Happy Thanksgiving!

This coming weekend is our Thanksgiving here in Canada. Our weekend plans are to head home to visit with my side of the family and staying in Elora with friends. We will commence our weekend early Saturday morning to beat the traffic driving through Toronto. Neil has already been "briefed" on the weekend agenda which consists of stopping at a couple of quilt shops along the way!
(Keep in mind, this usually costs me lunch in St. Jacobs at Vidalia's) Sunday we're travelling to the family farm and spending time with my family. Monday morning we are back on the road again early not only to get ahead of the traffic, but also on to another Thanksgiving dinner with Neil's family in Osgoode. Neil's oldest brother Bruce and his family are visiting from Alberta and the entire gang will be together, the first in many, many years. So needless to say, we have a busy weekend ahead of us plus lots of turkey, gravy, mashed pototes and I mustn't forget to mention pumpkin pie with whip cream! It's only once a year that I indulge but someone has to do it. Happy Thanksgiving from Our Home to Yours!

I'm sure there will be lots of picture taking when every one is together for the first time in years. Your weekend sounds like lots of fun. Enjoy your time with your family. :)
