Remember This?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Today my family and I will be celebrating with my husband’s side and with our second turkey dinner of the weekend. Last night we were at my parents place for a lively gathering with 11 of the 14 cousins. I love that my kids can grow up with so many cousins close by. We were even blessed to have my two nieces visiting from Edmonton too. We have tired kiddos this morning but it was all worth it!

Needless to say, with two big family events and a soccer tournament thrown in for good measure (because, you know, why not),  I have nothing new to share with you today. Gasp! I know! I have a ton of projects on the go but nothing that’s ready to share yet. It must be a busy time for a lot of us as even our usual Make It Monday crew was committed elsewhere and so we have decided to take the week off. I promise we’ll be back next Monday!

But I didn’t want to leave my blog empty today … SO … please welcome back my Thanksgiving post from 2012 …

My layout was inspired by the colour scheme you see above (from Apron Strings Croptober #8) and this sketch from Let’s Get Sketchy – at the time I was on their Design Team.

Aren’t they the cutest?! It’s fun to see how much my style has changed in the last 3 years.

Oh, and for comparison sake, here’s what we look like today.

This beautiful photo was taken in the spring by Greg Shurman. If you are local and in need of a photographer, I’d encourage you to check out his website. He was so good with the girls and got some fantastic shots. Even Christine, who was just a bundle of giggles the entire shoot!

Okay, now off to make some yams, broccoli casserole and brussel sprouts to take to my SIL. Yum! Feast #2!!

Have a wonderful Monday. See you again soon.
