The Round-up

Well, as usual it's been awhile since I've blogged.

Thanksgiving went very well here. We had 3 men from my husband's job, 2 ladies from the building and the 16 year old daughter of one of the ladies.

The food was good, the company worked out well for it to be such a mix of ages and backgrounds.

All in all very successful. My pecan pies didn't turn out as well as I'd have liked. The gravy was salty, but that's really all that went wrong. You can't ask for much better when cooking for 10.

Of course there were plenty of left overs.

In other news. Les and my first anniversary is October 24. And in true exhausted parent fashion we are going to have a quiet dinner at home.

One of the ladies downstairs is going to keep James for a few hours so we can have a bit of piece (er... I swear I meant PEACE) and time to ourselves.

In other and better news...

I've been asked to submit my passports to the Canadian government. This is a GOOD thing. They have to have the passports to add in the "Permanent Resident" page.

Woo hoo.. sounds like we may be at the end of this long and stressful path.

In really "not so happy news".

We've been having alot of behavioral problems with my son. It's been in the last month.. and it's led both me and my husband wishing we could cry ourselves to sleep on more than one occasion.

That's the real reason I've not blogged much. Sorry everyone..

I still love ya all!

Sunday is Thanksgiving in Canada. It seems odd to have it before Halloween, but oh well.

We've invited a few people over for a southern style Thanksgiving dinner. We'll be eating around 2 on Sunday.

The Menu:

Sweet Tea
Spiced Cider

Pickles & Olives
Cheese and Crackers
Candy Turkeys
Deviled Eggs

Brined, Roasted Turkey
Cornbread Stuffing & baked dressing
Mashed Potato
Sweet Potatoes and Marshmallows
Cranberry Sauce

Apple Pie
Pecan Pie
Homemade Cinnamon Rolls (maybe)


Lots of work, but it should be fun.

So.. Happy Thanksgiving
