Happy Thanksgiving!!

What a glorious weekend we have to celebrate Thanksgiving! The sun is out, the weather is warm and the trees are absolutely beautiful!! The tree on the left is in my parents backyard and it's always one of my favourite trees to watch turn colour in the fall. This year it's vibrant and oh so pretty!

Our family enjoyed our turkey dinner this afternoon with those who were able to attend. It was a small group but we had fun. This year we were thankful for the wonderful addition to our family...sweet and precious Makenna! She's 5.2 lbs now but I'm sure will quickly be on her way up the scales. It's funny to see her swimming in size zero diapers although it does make for many clothes changes throughout the day. She's wearing premie clothes and they're a little bit for her but I'm sure they won't be for long.

Here are a few of my favourite pics of the day...

Baby toes. There is nothing like baby fingers and toes!

The proud parents; my brother Dave and his wife Trish

'Everyone' wanted in on the deal. Even Mr. Turkey wanted to pose with Makenna! Heh...our little pumpkin is even smaller than the turkey was even though she's looking unimpressed to being asked to pose with a turkey! Nothing a little nap won't take care of.

And finally, just pics of my precious little niece all by herself, just because she's so cute! Not sure what she was dreaming about here but it sure was good!

Love you sweet Makenna! xoxo
