Happy Thanksgiving!







Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We have been so lucky to have beautiful fall weather and the leaves are turning their brilliant colours. I am a bit surprised, after such a dry summer, I thought maybe the colours wouldn't be as intense. I am so thankful to live in such a beautiful part of the world; there's nothing like a New Brunswick October! I'll have more fall colour photos soon.











I haven't been in blogland much lately as I've been busy getting prepared for Thanksgiving and a house full of family. Laura and family are home for two weeks, Mark and Maggie are home for five days as well, and Ian and Claire are here for two days. When you live in a quiet house with just we two ole farts and two kitties, seven extra people makes quite a difference! Claire at 3 has an abundance of energy... Noah hasn't been sleeping all that well, Laura and Dan both have colds... Yep, it's interesting! But it is so wonderful to have everyone here together. We are very thankful for a wonderful family. We feel very blessed!



Last night we had a yummy turkey dinner with all the fixins... We were so happy that Maggie's mother came from Moncton to join us and how lucky to have her to take a few family photos for us.  I think there's going to be a lot of this going on today..... Zzzzzzz....


Happy Thanksgiving from the Hubbard clan.




Peace,
Linda

One of the best gifts you can give someone is the gift of thanking them for being a part of your life.

Happy Thanksgiving Lynda. I can see where that many extra but lovable people would make a granny tired. Some turkey came home with us from our daughter's home and will be for dinner again tonight.
Enjoy the visit with your family.

well, it sounds like you had a great holiday. I was just thinking the other day that I need to make a grocery list for Thanksgiving while I think about what to make. Though our Thanksgiving is 1-1/2 months away, I'll want to have it all determined well in advance.

I'm so glad you had a nice visit with your family. Thanksgiving is one of the very best holidays to spend with your family. You are lucky that Thanksgiving and Christmas are a few months apart. That would make the holidays a whole lot less stressful than in the U.S.
xx, Carol

There's nothing like a house full of people and lots of noise and commotion! It sounds like you've had a great holiday weekend and how nice your grand baby is here for a good visit!! Enjoy every busy moment.

I'm having a hard time to keep up with blog reading lately. It's so nice to be able to get out again and I want to do everything!
Looks like you had a great Thanksgiving. The weather cooperated too.
I have used both your patterns a lot. I gave a bunch to my daughter and have more cut that I'll save for gifts.
