On Thanksgiving weekend, Angela and Ollie and Jackie and Brian came home. Here in Canada, we have Thanksgiving in October. On the Saturday, Jackie and Brian got to our house really early in the morning. They live in Calgary and they flew through the night. Then Ollie got to our house in the afternoon. He was in Great Britain for two weeks for his job and he got to visit his family because that is where he is from. Then Angela got to our house. She was at a conference in Columbus, Ohio and she had to drive from there. Finally everyone was home. We celebrated birthdays and Angela getting her PhD.
On Sunday we made Thanksgiving food and Nana (Lorraine) and Papa (John) came for dinner. Sometimes we joke that my nana’s name is Gloria. It was a beautiful weekend and we got to sit outside a lot. On Monday, Jackie and Brian had to fly back to Calgary and Angela and Ollie had to drive back to Toronto. It was a great weekend.
