Thanksgiving weekend and a Giveaway winner.



We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend, the weather was amazing, and so was the foliage. It was a busy weekend with a dinner Saturday night at Irwin Inn (thanks Jess) that was hosted by Jeff's cousin Nancy and her hubby Bill. I think that there were around 40 people there, so we didn't get alot of time to chat with them. What a great dinner it was though, and it was good to see some faces that we only see at funerals and weddings. Thanks Nancy and Bill for such a lovely time, email me some of your pictures when you get time; I was so busy eating that I didn't take any pics:(















On Sunday we went to Norwood to Jeff's Mom and Dad's. We arrived there shortly before 1pm so that we could go to the fair, as did almost everyone else in a 50 mile radius! Jeff, Adam (and a rather hungover) and Jake went on the rides, and Jess and I explored the animal barns and the food and craft buildings. It was crazy busy, but we managed to see almost everything, eat a lot of stuff that wasn't particularily good for us, and take a few pics. Then we went back to Bert and Jackies for our Thanksgiving feast!!









Monday was spent recovering from Sunday and watching the Pete's hockey on TV. Oh yeah, I got Jeff to pick a name for the winner of my 'Share the LOVE giveaway'....I know thats the only reason why you are still reading this....for the winner's name!!

Visit her blog to enter the two new giveaways that she has posted about! I have to nominate 6 others for this award. That is really hard to do, cause so many of you have such wonderful blogs, but I'll give it a try. The rules are to grab this award pic and post it on your blog, and nominate 6 of your choice for the same award! Of course, you have to tell the winners that they have been chosen.
