visitors and photos

Guess what I'm thankful for this year. . . . I'll give you a hint, it starts with "F" and it rhymes with "tamily". I know I'm a few days late for a Thanksgiving post, but hey aren't we supposed to be thankful all year? I guess I'm starting early for next year.

It's crazy to think that Thanksgiving has come and gone already but there are pumpkins on my mantel so it must be true. I had a great time setting out leaves and gourds again this year. I never used to decorate for Thanksgiving but there's something about this house, this neighborhood, that just makes it make sense.

Janie and Corrina spent the day after Thanksgiving here and we had a great time. It was such a beautiful day we HAD to go to the water -- afterall these ladies live in a landlocked province, horrors! We bundled up the baby and headed down for a good, long walk. What a great way to spend an afternoon. Dave, we took the next two pictures for you, one of the kite surfers who were really, REALLY enjoying the day, and one of your girls walking the boardwalk (and missing you I'm sure).
There are, of course, more photos of the Little Bean so for Grandparents, Parents and any other interested parties, you can see more of Corrina and the lady responsible for at least half of her cuteness on Flickr. But because it can be such a long way all the way over to Flickr, here are a few more gratis.

Enjoy! (I know I did.)

Thank you Claire (sniff) - the photos are lovely.

Corrina certainly gets cuter by the day. Glad you had a great visit with Janie - sisters-in-law are great aren't they.

We've got snow!!! Too crazy. I'm off to work. I was due to just work Wednesday but they keep asking me to go in and I keep saying OK.

I think I may choose to work 2 or 3 days a week thru the winter - other more pressing commitments notwithstanding.

Love, Mom (& Dad too) XX

Thanks for blessing us with your beautiful photography. I am going to head over to flick after this comment to take a look at the pumpkin pics!
I get such a kick out of Corrina's open mouth smile. I wonder when words will come out of that cutie? I hope she always does that face when she is excited and happy. I was looking at some of my baby/childhood pictures, and i had a distinct "surprised face" that was caught in many photos, and hasn't changed at all!
Hope you survive this next bought of rain in your area. I was lucky to miss all the rain and just hit the warm sunshine!
Take care,
Love Janie
