We had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving weekend. We spent a few days up at Whistler pumpkin patching, mountain biking {Craig & Sebastian}, chilling & eating & drinking & making merry.

I have so many things to be thankful for. Here's my list for this year:

* My children, who are good companions. I'm happy that they get along (most of the time!) & get a kick out of each other:

{ Sebastian & Paulina at North Arm Farms near Pemberton }

* A handsome husband who still gives me goosebumps when he walks into a room

{ Craig & Sebastian at Jim's cabin in Whistler }

* Plenty. Plenty of food, plenty of security, plenty of warmth, plenty of family & plenty of friends. I feel particularly blessed when I remember that there are many around the world who would be happy with a fraction of what I have.

{ Kids picking out their perfect pumpkins }

{ our bountiful harvest of purple carrots from our garden }

* Good health. Sometimes I take this for granted & I shouldn't.

{ Leenzie & me ~ & my hair back to it's natural colour!! }

* A belly full of baby. WE ARE EXPECTING #3!!!! Thrilled, excited, nervous & full of anticipation. Can't wait to meet the newest addition in spring 2011.

How about you? What are you thankful for?
