Canadian Thanksgiving in South Africa
I made the pumpkin spice cookies. Dylan made everything else! His momma taught him well! He even made the stuffing himself! Since having Thanksgiving dinner just the two of us seemed a bit sad and pathetic (we can't help being the only Canucks on the base), we invited some of our friends to join in. It was a very international Thanksgiving, but Dylan was sure to play some Gordon Lightfoot (look, he's from Red Deer the poor boy, so let's not be too hard on him), and we sang the national anthem for them, though not very well... It was cool to watch Angeline and Loy eat pumpkin pie for the first time, a vital part of Thanksgiving for us Northerners. They seemed to like it... And to end off the evening, Dylan even bought some Kilkenny which we savoured while dreaming of the Great White North.
