Thanksgiving weekend this year was fantastic! We lucked out with some amazing weather, as well as had lots of people around the table to visit with and have a lot of laughs.

Here are some photos from the weekend. 

This is the set up before all of the food. We had 13 people this year which was awesome! The only people missing were Nathan and Carrie. :(

Aunt Dianne, aka Lois, trying to figure out how to use her new oven. She must have looked at the manual about 100 times! It was definitely more complicated than any of us expected.

Here is Daver cutting up the ham and pepperoni. Marc, he remembered to take the casing off this year. LOL

A few pics of my cousin Stephanie's house she is renting. She sold it to a couple living in the middle east who are moving back in June to flip the house, and in the mean time were looking for tenants, so she gets an amazing view and a cute little house for the same amount of money she paid for her 2 bedroom apartment. 

And this is her crazy cat Sage. :) I don't think this cat ever stops moving. I mean, look at her face! LOL Sketchy!

Dad and her were playing. She was trying to catch his finger and pounce from around the corner. 

After we went to Steph's place, Elise and I made a trip to the grocery store to get some ingredients to make a baked brie and some roasted garlic and caramelized onion dips. This was what we snacked on while vegging on the couch later that evening.

And of course, this was our breakfast the next morning. Uncle Dave cut up some left over meat from our dinner, and we had scrambled eggs, 3 different kinds of bread for toast, garden tomatoes, fruit and of course, champagne and orange juice. 

It was definitely a fantastic weekend. The weather was gorgeous, and everyone was in great spirits. It's just too bad it ended so quickly, since its my favourite holiday of the year.
