Canadian Thanksgiving and More

Mom and Dad on Canadian Thanksgiving day.

Some holidays are worth celebrating more than once!!
We always try to have our own little
Canadian Thanksgiving celebration.
Our beautiful mums. They always bloom nicely in the fall!
Pumpkin crunch, our C.Thanksgiving dessert.

Daddy was able to make a visit to Toronto for a nephew's wedding.
This photo is of him with his dad and mom, brothers, and sister.

Matthew and Caleb rappelling:)
A very interesting quote that I found on another blog, I thought I would share it with you.
"What if you woke up this morning and found the only things that you had left were the things that you thanked God for Yesterday?"  Terry Shock

Mom made a house for the three little girls..they love it!
Hey Reuben...what do you think of JoAnna's toothless smile??

Matthew's science experiment..yeast and sugar reacted to fill the balloon.
If you look closely, you can see that the yeast mixture is about 2/3 of the way
up the bottle...it started at only 1 inch.

Our new mini-van.
It is a 2000 Plymouth Grand Voyageur.

We no longer  have a 15 passenger van :(
This means when we all go, we need both of our vehicles...
even with both vehicles, we will get better mpg than when
we drove together in the Chevy van.
I do have to say, though (in defense of 15 passenger vans)
that when we drove the Ford with the V10 engine,
it really got excellent mpg for as many people as
it hauled...it got 16. 

While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest,and cold and heat, and summer and winter,and day and night shall not cease. Genesis 8:22 May God bless you all with his peace today. Thanks for taking the time to look at our blog!!
