I don't know why Canadian and Americans celebrate Thanksgiving on a different days but one thing I know, we should be thankful every day of the year for all we have and not only on a special day of food festivities at harvest time.
 My list of thanksgiving is long so I'll spare you... and shorten it  to this....

I'm thankful for all my very large family of brothers and sisters and my parents, ( may they rest in peace), who have instilled in me many values that have made me who I am today, my husband and my own family of 4 kids and their spouses, 7 grandkids and my great grandchild and not to forget my many close friends I have made over the years, way too numerous to mention here.

I can't forget my Rug Hooking Daily friends and also my blogger friends and secret followers. They also add spice to my busy life. I'm truly blessed...

When I was growing up, I would have never dreamt that one day I would have so many friends to share parts of my life with as I was raised in a very small country place.

I almost forgot I'm also thankful for computers, yeah. I truly am..... it makes me reach across the globe for dear friends.

To celebrate Thanksgiving here are some photos of the little grandkids my daughter Christine sent me last evening. Thanks Christine...

James and Daniel  with an other kid in the wagon at the pumpkin patch.

I think Daniel is examining a corn kernel up close.

Daniel posing in front of the pumpkins, so many to choose from.... don't you just love that little smile?

Daniel first ride on Oreo the Pony. Daddy is making sure Daniel is staying on. It's still a big pony for a little boy...

I think Daniel love this green wagon.

James is enjoying being here with mama and is ready to play in the corn box.

Playing in the hay is really fun. You should try it sometimes.

Playing in the corn box is even more fun than playing in a sand box, don't you think. It's more colorful for one thing...

James dosen't know which pumpkin he wants to choose. I'm sure he's picked several for dad to carve for Halloween. Dad is a master pumpkin carver.

James is big enough to really enjoy a ride on Oreo the pony. I can tell by his satisfied smile.

Daniel knows how to drive this huge tractor but his legs are too short to reach the pedals.

James has mastered the art of peeling apples for mama's famous apple pies.

He's watching with keen interest how mama rolls the dough...

A perfect circle. My daughter puts me to shame, such a perfectionist...

Christine told me that James helped dad deliver an apple pie to the neighbour and James told them that their dog could also have a piece. How thoughtful...

Happy Thanksgiving blogger friends in Canada even across borders and oceans...
Thanks for your visit and for leaving comments. I really am thankful for you all.
