Happy Thanksgiving

I know it's not actually Thanksgiving day yet, but I know that I will be way too busy on that day to post so I am doing it today. Thanksgiving will be at my house on Monday around 1 pm so any of you family out there . . . bring food and come join us. There will be around 30 people here and we will have a great time. Ken and Mitz might be able to come for coffee, but will not be joining us for the day since Mitz just got back from the States to help Mel and Peter move back to BC from Wyoming. They will be moving them into their own place today (Sunday) and then having their Thanksgiving on Monday for supper.
I will take pictures and write a new post next week. Just wanted to let my family know how thankful I am to have been chosen by God to be a member of this amazing family. I love you all and am so thankful for each one of you. Have a great Thanksgiving holiday and you out there in Saskatchewan, when you give Mom and Dad a hug tell them how much they mean to us all. You can never hear that too much. I miss you all. Happy Thanksgiving!

Aww, Happy Thanksgiving, too, Auntie Margaret! Unfortunately, I have to work tomorrow until 5, but I'll be there after work! :D

Margaret said...

I'm sorry about that Carrie. Couldn't you have waited to get a job until after Thanksgiving? :) We will save you a plate of everything, even desert.

If any of you Saskatchewanites reads this before you see the family for Thanksgiving, don't forget to wish Peter a Happy Birthday. I think he's 55 today. Whatever ... he's old. Don't forget to remind him of that. At his age he might have forgotten.

Happy Thanksgiving. I too am thankful to be a part of such a large and wonderful family. Yesterday was a wonderful day.

Mitz said...

Sorry I missed it. I had the worst trip of my life but did bring my kids back safe and somewhat sound. My truck however is not so sound. I almost drove it off a cliff....and debated whether to stay in it or not. Very bad trip but am safe at home again. PTL!!!!

Avaelyn said...

Whoa, that's crazy, Auntie Mitz, I'm glad you guys are okay! PTL?!

Margaret said...

PTL = Praise The Lord

PTL = Poopy Truck Lament

Toad said...

OH SWEET IT'S LIKE BALDERDASH

PTL - PRETERM LABOUR OR HOW ABOUT PENIS TOTAL LENGTH?

I WASN'T GONNA WRITE IT BUT I COULDN'T HELP MYSELF. I APPOLOGISE.

ptl - pretty trav like.... oh yeah.... doesn't get much better than that

Mitz said...

I like Becky's other version of PTL best. :)

Becky said...

Yeah, mine actually makes sense 'cause it goes with the story.

Carol said...

Yikes. Glad to hear that you are all safe and sound. Sorry to hear about the truck though.

I agree, at least Becky's response did go with the story line. But some of the others were pretty good. And speaking of Balderdash, we did play it at Margaret's on Monday. And David said he hates when I play, cause he always picks my answers. Well, needless to say, he did not disappoint me this time either. :o)

I know thanksgiving is past, but I want you to know how thankful I am for your friendship Margaret!! I'm thankful for the wonderful memories of my time at your house, with you and the kids. I do love running into your mother. She gives the same amazing hugs as you do. She's an amazing lady
Love ya all!

You know Auntie Margaret, it really isn't Thanksgiving yet. It's not for another 340 (give or take a few) days. I think it's time to post something new. :)
