Canadian Thanksgiving Eh?

This past weekend we ventured up to Tsawwassen, BC to celebrate Thanksgiving with Brian's family.
Brian's childhood pet, Poncho, added Magnolia to his list of girls he likes to perform for and another reason to attack Brian.

Magnolia learned that sliding glass doors are fun for watching the dogs play. Trudy spent much of the visit wishing she could be on the other side of the door.

Magnolia broke out her hand-me-down Canuck sweatsuit from her cousin Ella to cheer our team on. They came back from a 3-1 deficit to beat Calgary 5-4 in overtime!

Magnolia also got to spend some quality time with her cousins, Ella and Noah. Much to Ella's frustration, Maggie was definitely more interested in her beaded dress than Dora.

Magnolia also got some quality time with her grandparents. She quickly learned that Grandpa Rush has cool things in his shirt pocket. In addition to Grandma and Grandpa Rush, and cousins Noah and Ella, Maggie also got to see her Great-Grandma Batiuk, Great-Uncle Bill, Great-Aunt Audrey, Aunt Lori, Uncle Travis and his mom, Ann. It was a bit overwhelming for her at times, but like a true people-person she was all smiles...nearly. For most of the day, Uncle Travis freaked her out.

After eating way too much yummy food, including Brian's favorite, Mud Pie, made specially for him, we headed home in time for Magnolia and me to head to bed and for Brian to play soccer.

Wow, she is growing up way too fast! Especially when I only get to see her every month or so, which is not nearly enough. Tell her to stop standing and crawling and other big girl stuff for a while, and remind her about me. See you this weekend, hopefully.

Seeing your earlier posts with Magnolia in her Canucks gear way back when she was little made me pester my family for tiny-sized Canucks stuff for our baby to be. Brittany found a cute onsie and shoes at the thrift store, so we're on our way. YAY! I can't wait to have one more fan in Seattle.
She's adorable, by the way. Looking so grown up.
