Thanksgiving Pt 1

Hello again!

For Canadian Thanksgiving we were blessed to have my whole family come for a visit. It's been almost 2 yrs since everyone has been at our house at the same time, so the opportunity for memory-making was all the more cherished.
Mom, Dad and the boys rolled in Thursday night and my sisters came after work on Friday. Mom brought a box full of gourds from her garden, and Hope was delighted with all the "yittle, pumpkins."

Dad and the boys kept busy outside and put in a sidewalk for us along the front of our lot.
It is wonderful to have a walkway right beside where we park the van. Makes it so much nicer for getting in and out. :o)
Mum and I bundled up the girls and braved the blustery day to take the girls to the park.
Little kids are the best -they don't care if it's cold and windy. :o)
After our walk, Hopey got to help Granny process fresh applesauce for lunch.

Saturday morning brunch with Chloe and Lydia too!
After brunch, Lydia, Mum and I went to a friends to get some perennials from a friend's garden. We planted them later in the afternoon while the others went for a walk. :o)
It was a great day for yard work. I have a picture of Lydia digging up the garden bed with Hope from last October, so I thought I should take a pic of the two of them doing it together again this year. :o)
Jammin' with Uncle Luke.
Her rhythm was impeccable! She was watching when Luke would change chords and would strum each time she saw his fingers move. It was so cute.
