canadian thanksgiving

With so much family in town last week, and it also being Canadian Thanksgiving on Monday, we were able to have Canadian Thanksgiving together the Sunday before! Growing up I always got two Thanksgivings, and I loved it.
 
Last Sunday we met up at a family friends house and all brought different parts of the meal. It was a fun night full of eating, playing pool, making music, talking, and laughing. I basically cuddled my sweet nephew all night long. The best part of the night was getting him in his pjs and ready for bed and being able to feed him while he fell asleep in my arms. That little guy just makes me so incredibly happy I tell you. When he smiles... he smiles BIG, and it fills you up! It is the best.

It was such a great night. Basically when my family is all together, everything is right with the world. Everything else falls to the background and we don't focus on anything but each other, and I love that.

Trevor just sat right on down and played this harp like he had been doing it for years. I guess that's just what comes with knowing guitar and piano so well, you can play almost anything! It was so pretty, I think we need a harp now.
