Thanksgiving Weekend 2013

Princess Mia came to the house for Thanksgiving. Kaylin found a stray cat in Moncton and she decided to give her a home. So when Kaylin came home for Thanksgiving on Friday, so did Mia.

It was kind of fun to watch Snickers discover this new moving object in our house. She was very curious.

She has spent long hours just staring at the cat. Kind of cute.

Saturday morning we had puppets and Robin walked the kids through prop design.

His encouragers are 2 boys with special needs who were so enthusiastic. 

One creative girl.

Robin and his big box of paper and supplies.

On Saturday night, Robin and I celebrated our 26th anniversary. It's hard to believe but time flies and here we are enjoying cheesecake in downtown Halifax while our 19 year old daughter watches our 9 and 12 year old kids. 

Saturday morning Peter had been asked to tell 5 things he was thankful for in front of church. This was interesting timing. Peter has been having a difficult time adjusting to his new school and that has really clouded his behaviour over all. So this was a good time for him to remember what he is thankful for.

The turkey carver and the pie maker.

A full plate of food. You can pretty much have the same plate of food at every holiday meal. I don't venture too far from the usual menu. I think the kids all love that.

2 daughters and 1 friend.

Father, boyfriend and son. Missing oldest son.

Mother and daughter.

The day ended with learning a new game. Rivals of Catan is a 2 player game and Robin thought it would be good and fast to play. But there's a bit of a learning curve to figure out the game. It took 3 of us trying to decipher the rules. The boys think they have it.

Monday was a gorgeous day and so 4 of us and a dog went for a walk at a local path.

Always rock throwing.

Picture posing.

Seeing just how far you can jump.

Skidding a bit with slippery shoes, but giving it a good shot.

Monday night ended with a game. This time the old familiar Clue. It went fast so there were a couple of rounds played. A great weekend.
