Thanksgiving !

Together with Our Family
Celebrated on October  9, 2010
It was a beautiful weekend for our family to spend together (except for one,our son Ian who was away working). It ended up being the perfect day to put everyone to work getting firewood. Mike and Nathan kept busy with the chainsaws and running the log-splitter. The grandchildren were there as well to help load logs into the truck, as you can see they spent some of their time in the cab of the truck playing ...!!!  Katie, Nathan & Mike loaded all the wood.  I was busy at the house preparing Thanksgiving dinner.

Closing in on lunchtime, I decided to venture down to Oma's woodpile to check if they were going to stop for lunch.  The kids wanted to go up to Oma's house for a visit and have some hot chocolate (oma didn't have any so I went home to bring her some) It was great,  because in the meantime Oma made lunch for everyone ... !!! Lucky for me , one meal was enough for this group.  Called the guys up for a bite to eat and had an enjoyable time eating, chatting and lots of laughing.

I went back to the house to continue with dinner and the guys loaded and unloaded a couple more truck & trailer full of firewood.   Kendall & Daigen arrived to help me set up for dinner, bringing me a fall arrangement for the centre of the table ...  absolutely beautiful ...!!! 

Firewood stacked, tools put away, everyone showered and dressed to sit down to a well-deserved dinner.
Grateful to have celebrated Thanksgiving dinner with our family, friends and those who are dear to our hearts always in our thoughts.  What a beautiful life....!!!
