A perfect 2nd Thanks giving meal and get together with my family

Where are we today ? 
 clic a pic to enlarge it 
       Made it through all the food and family time yesterday and rested in the afternoon. But was uncomfortable, restless, loss of appetite, stomach pains, etc... and had trouble sleeping. When we left the hospital on Friday they advised I use extra strength Tylenol instead of the advil we had always used. When Suzie checked the adverse side effects of Tylenol and found to I had almost every one of them. So the more I took the worse I felt! So no more Tylenol for me. Starting to feel much better this morning already.
downtown water tower 
Still cold here this morning at 38F (3C). our Blue Flame heater keeps us quite comfortable inside so that is no problem.  Then because I could I got out for another drive around town taking a few pictures along the way. So nice to be able to get out and about, even got my winter coat out as well. Guess I better get used to wearing it.
the 5 points intersection
lots of great food here
the Mill downtown
    Back home the skies clouding over even more.  Has warmed up to 45 F by noon.
       Now we puttered around here for a bit relaxing. Until the first arrival shortly after 1 pm.
My son, Jane and GD #2
the first to arrive, wow !
my 3 kids , son, Daughter #1, and Daughter # 2
       As the kids arrived they moved around the house looks like they found lots to keep them occupied.
Lotsa cool things to keep them busy

She made devilled eggs

  2. What a great family celebration and feast!!! Happy Thanksgiving!!!

  3. Another great day with family, glad you enjoyed the day.

  4. Your food looked wonderful and I bet you have a lot of leftovers. Yum! Nice family pictures. Good job kids.

    1. The food was excellent and yes a lot of left overs but not for us I let them take it all.

  5. What a fantastic holiday you all enjoyed. Love all the pictures. You have a wonderful family to pull this off on such short notice and Suzie's family was great to have this second gathering at there home. Now you rest up George.

    1. Yes JO it was a fantastic holiday and great it was all pulled off on short notice, Not what we had planned but it worked.

  6. I loved all your family pictures. I’m continuing to keep both of you in my prayers.

    1. Thank for the prayer Betty and glad you enjoyed the pictures.

  7. Wonderful family pictures and I think it is a testament to how you raised your children that they pulled together and made such a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner and family time for you and Suzie! It must have been very different for you to sit back and let someone else do the cooking.

    1. Thanks guys these kids sure did an awesome Job with the food and everything, nothing for me to do.

  8. What a beautiful family you have George!

    Glad everything came together nicely and the food looks phenomenal. Goes to show that blogs can teach you something new...I was under the impression that Thanksgiving was only celebrated in the USA, now I know Canada has the same tradition.

    1. Thanks Ms. Belinda so nice to have them all together.
      And they pulled it all together at the last minute.
      We celebrate our Thanks Giving now and when we travel south we get to Celebrate again in November.
