Janine....and Thanksgiving Visiting

My sister-in-law Janine has undergone her first bout of chemotherapy.  Her mother and sister will be flying from Switzerland to stay with Janine and Ken in British Columbia.  Her father and other sister will join them a couple of weeks later.  I know how uplifting that will be to her.   I hope you continue to remember her in your prayers.  Realization of everything is hitting Janine but she is managing to stay strong.  We exchange emails and good wishes. 
Did you have a lovely Thanksgiving?  There is so much to be grateful for. 

We celebrated this special day with our good friends.  As we were getting things ready to go Geoff and Madeline stopped by.

 Madeline was loving the attention....and kisses from her daddy...
I had baked some fally, Thanksgiving type of cookies....
 and some of Marc's favourite mincemeat tarts.  Some had maple leaves on the top and others had little pumpkins.  We brought some over for dessert.
Dinner with our friends was yummy and we always have so much to catch up on.
Marc and my girlfriend Kirsti....
 It was a late night for sure but it was fun.  I apparently didn't take very many pictures to show you.  We also made some fresh bread and one of our brie, pear, cranberry pastry braids but no pictures to share.  Hope you are having a great week... Judi xoxo
