Thanksgiving Overseas...

It was the first time in about 5 years that we were able to join my parents and brother for Thanksgiving. Nothing like being home for the holidays. Mom put on a feast, as usual!

Loved mom's festive displays around the house...

We also celebrated my big brother's birthday.

The kids all chose gifts to give him and piled on him on the couch to get him to open them!

I don't know if Elise was trying to get her card to look like Uncle Angus, or not, but she sure made a cute card!!

Then, the after-dinner festivities included a show by Elise and Uncle Angus - they had us in stitches!

My dad and his "girls".

They got some new chicks that were "all girls" but my dad said as soon as he saw the babies he knew this one was a rooster, even before the baby feathers grew out, he was struttin' his stuff. The last rooster they had ended up in the freezer, so it was nice to see one around there again!

On our ferry ride home, a nice lady took our picture.

We have so much to be thankful for, including the bounty that was loaded in our truck as we were leaving. All from my parents' garden, and from their neighbour's garden. Potatoes, garlic, tomatoes, zucchinis, pears and more. Fresh food is the best gift!
