Happy Thanksgiving!!!

It's Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada so I've had a family filled last couple of days. We've had a great time!!! Got to cook a turkey and bring it over to my mom's on Saturday, too bad BOTH my camera batteries needed to be charged so I had to rely on Jack's iPod and my Blackberry for photos but I haven't uploaded them yet. Anyways...considering our last family get together with my mom ended up in a anaphalactic episode with Cole, this holiday was AWESOME!!! My turkey turned out fabulous, my brother was there (we thought he wouldn't be able to make it) and we had a fun time together!
We started out Sunday with a mad dash to church which was so worth the effort!!! Learned lots!!! Then it was home to grab a small bite and relax before our Neustaedter Thanksgiving meal. We had a great time! Wonderful food; my SIL L. makes the BEST salads and she brought a kale salad with avocados that was amazing!!! The kids loved playing with the animals, collecting the eggs and playing hide and seek together. Here are a few photos of our time together:

Peyton is thankful she could play, snuggle and love the cats as she so wishes she could have one for a pet-but mom is allergic to cats...
I am so thankful for my family-kids and especially my husband-he works so hard to support our family and give us happy holidays. I am so thankful for my family-the fact I'm 40+ years old and still have my mom here; that my kids have grandparents and lots of aunties, uncles and cousins around the world!!! Most of all, I'm thankful that I HAVE Jesus in my life and the freedom to worship and speak about my God!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
