We had a great Thanksgiving weekend! On Friday afternoon we went to the airport and picked up Lindsay, who was in Calgary in meetings for the day. Jeremy travelled down after work that day. We haven’t seen them since prior to our vacation in September. Sometimes scheduling just doesn’t work out well in the summer with everyone coming and going:(
On Saturday we went to watch Emerson at swimming lessons. What a cutie! She loves the swimming, and is SO cute walking to the slide and splashing down. She really needs lessons because she is quite fearless. Then we headed out to pick up a birthday cake for Tracy. Cal and Lindsay had been working for almost 2 months planning a surprise party for Tracy’s 30th! You can read about it on Tracy’s blog. The white lies were getting numerous so I am glad the day arrived. After a quick lunch we went to watch Blake at hockey! Can you believe it? It is pre-initiation and he goes every Saturday at 1:15 p.m. He had a great practice and stayed skating almost the whole time.
Don and I went home after that, we had to get ready to go and babysit that evening. Tracy’s party turned out to be a success.
Sunday was a pretty laid back. Don and Lindsay and I went for a late morning breakfast and a quick trip to Costco. Lindsay and I found some time to sort through all my card making supplies and organize them (to some extent). Then Lindsay was off to the Stecyck’s for their Thanksgiving, and I was ready to start our cooking prep for Monday.
We were joined by our family – Tracy, Cal, Blake and Emerson (and almost baby#3) and Lindsay and Jeremy. Also my brother Warren and wife Cherie, and Kelly & Calvin. Kelly has been a friend of Lindsay’s since junior high!
As always the house was busy and fun. There was too much to eat for which we are truly grateful.
I may not write too much before Christmas, but have a great fall. Here’s a smile for you:
