Happy Thanksgiving

Today is Thanksgiving Day in Canada. We celebrated with turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes, cranberries and pumpkin pie (plus more). We usually have our dinner on the Sunday, leaving the Monday free for other activities.
I made this banner to hang on the fireplace - I see that the "a" fell just before I took the picture. Regluing is in order!

I love being together with my family. Our son brought over his PlayStation 3 and we laughed while he tried to teach us how to use it. (I just took pictures - video games are not "my thing.") And we talked, laughed and ate some more. Friends from Ecuador/USA came up for the weekend and joined us.

Dinner started with a salad. I made small bags of caramel corn tied with a collaged and stamped tag for place markers. We have the tradition of going around the table and everyone saying something they are thankful, houses, family, purpose in life, faith...the words stay the same but the sentiment is always heartfelt.

A Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians!

    The dinner plate and the food looks lovely.

  3. Gorgeous banner, Lorrie! I'm glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. Ours was fairly low-key, but warm and happy nevertheless.

    Thanks for popping in to say Hi and lend your enthusiasm :)
