Our weekend of dinners

beautiful Kale flowers as a centre piece
It's Sunday night and I am stuffed, and Thanksgiving isn't technically until tomorrow! We've had a full weekend so far filled with coffee, baked pumpkin goods, wine, and everything in between. Since the weather was cooler we opted to forgo the Farmer's Market, which has been our Saturday morning tradition for the last four months. Instead, we headed over to a German bakery - The Crusty Bun, and enjoyed some fabulous dark roast coffee and baked treats. The Littlest has something called a German Tea Cake, I had a black and white cookie, and Tyler had a chocolate croissant. I think we've found our winter Saturday morning routine, and while I do love the farmers market, it was nice to sit down and enjoy some quiet time just the three of us.

Chatting it up together
Saturday evening we had an amazing feast at our friends Lauren and Mike's - who should probably start charging for their dinners. Every time I've eaten with them I've felt the food was so much better than what I would get in a restaurant... and the ambiance of their quaint home is second to none. Soren likes it so well he sleeps soundly in their guest room - always a plus!

My dinner date. He doesn't sit at the table for long!
After a slow start Sunday morning, due to a couple extra glasses of vino on Saturday night, we went to my parents house for dinner. Tyler and I both come from big families, so it felt a little strange to have an intimate - siblings free - dinner. Again the food was fabulous and we left feeling stuffed to the brim. I think we'll need to go on a mini-fast until tomorrow's dinner... Which will be the official thanksgiving dinner. Happy Thanksgiving! I'm feeling very thankful to have spent the weekend with so many friends and family.

Does Canada celebrate Thanksgiving in early October? I never knew that. Thanksgiving in The States isn't until the end of November. I guess this would spread out the crazy holiday season a little. As it is, as soon as you've worn off your turkey coma, it's time for Christmas! I love your little guy's cheeks! So cute!

Your baby is so cute and I love those kale flowers! I too didn't know that Canada celebrated Thanksgiving at the beginning of October.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Adorable pictures!

I think a lot of people don't notice the ambiance their house puts out. I love that people pay attention to that sometimes.
