10 On The 10th: October 2021

I can't believe it's already time for another "10 on the 10th" post. October 10th was the Sunday of our Thanksgiving weekend and it was a full day for us.

Rachel, Dave, and I started the day bright and early with grocery shopping.

In anticipation of our Thanksgiving Dinner later that day, Rachel made a double batch of her famous chocolate cake.

We headed out to a favourite spot for a fall hike.

It really was gorgeous but it was pretty muddy and the mosquitoes were bad, so we only lasted about forty-five minutes. We'll have to try again when it's a bit colder and not so wet. 

Since we got home earlier than we had anticipated, I had time to mix up a batch of gingersnaps. The kids had been asking me to make these for a few weeks so I was glad to be able to get them made.

We don't do a traditional turkey dinner for Thanksgiving. It's usually a mix of some protein and some roasted fall vegetables. Last year we started making sauteed shrimp which is so delicious! This year we had a slightly picky eater join us so we also mixed up some Kraft dinner!

Empty plates and full hearts -- we loved celebrating Thanksgiving with some of our favourite people.

And that was our October 10th -- it was a really great day!


  1. Love your sautéed shrimp Tday dinner! This is so fun and makes me very excited for our Thanksgiving coming up next month.

  2. Happy Happy Thanksgiving- looks like it was a great day!

  3. Makes me look forward to Thanksgiving!

  4. Looks like such a great day! I really hate that the mosquitoes have been so bad this year. They really know how to ruin a good time.

  5. So glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

  6. That sounds like a wonderful Thanksgiving day! We have been noticing our hikes are quite muddy and mosquito filled this fall too.

  7. Getting me in the mood for our Thanksgiving and time off of work! :)
