So for all my Canadian friends today was a holiday, which equals no work and an extra long weekend YAY! (I know it was Columbus Day for my American friends….but not a long weekend)
We had our Thanksgiving dinner /w Colin’s family. We normally visit both sides but my mother had to work all weekend (she works at the hospital) so it was just the in-laws this year.
I was still sick and I apologize b/c Ali sick makes for a pitifully low fun-o-meter…which means nothing out of the ordinary or remotely cool happened.
|I love Logan in the pic|
Rex had some fun times chasing the ball around….
I think Logan just enjoyed being outside…
When we got back to the house the cousins had arrived! so little L was super excited to play /w them. I felt like the worst Aunt ever! normally I’m right down playing /w everyone but I didn’t want to get anyone sick and I felt like crap. I literally sat in the same chair for the majority of the get-together. lame.
At least I had Ashley. She was awesome! Not only did she hand deliver me veggies so I didn’t have to get up she also came over and played games /w me. Her favourite Aunt is now living in Thailand so I’m gonna have to step up my game
Like father, like son. I caught both of the men sneaking turkey while they were supposed to be carving it! I also caught Colin’s father sneaking food to Rex, which is not allowed.
We try not to feed him human food for a few of reasons a) so his farts don’t smell b) so he doesn’t beg c) so he’ll eat the crap logan throws on the floor ….but the MAIN reason is to avoid this face…
|look closely and enlarge – pure fixation. there is NO getting through to him when like this.|
Dinner was great but I didn’t get to fully enjoy this holiday. I would normally have at least two helpings and my first plate would’ve been over-flowing /w the maximum amount of food possible. However, when you’re sick food tastes different and there was no point wasting any of it. I’ve been having a hard time eating this whole week. Blah.
Colin was an awesome uncle and dad as per usual and T-man (Tristan) looked after Logan the entire time we were there. It’s nice to know he has future babysitters in the family.
- awesome weather
- friends & family
- amazing food
- cheap xmas present finds (yep we got Logan something already SCORE!)
