Its turkey time here in Canada, a time to spend time with family and loved ones. Thanksgiving was always big with my dad, at least as I remember it. Nothing made him happier then having all of us gather together. This year is no different. My brother and his family are visiting from the mainland, filling my mothers house with happy children and adults trying to relax. Happily, Isabelle seems to be able to play better with her cousins this year and Roslyn is happy to follow along hopefully this means we will have a peaceful holiday season (other then squealing children.)
My thanksgiving will be spent with my husbands family in one of the family cabins. More adults then children there but Isabelle will get lots of attention and what 3 year old doesn't like attention?
This weekend is also the weekend that we begin the process of putting my father to 'rest.' Since his passing we haven't done anything with his ashes. We couldn't decide what to do but now we have all agreed and we begin the process.
It will be a weekend of remembrance, eating and crazy kids...always crazy kids.
