“Don’t you put words in people’s mouths. You put turkey in people’s mouths.” -Joey

Our Thanksgiving started bright and early!  Ava was on a mission to help us get Noelle up, breakfast made and our picnic set up in the living room all before the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade started!  We did it!

With our stomach’s rumbling and we headed over to PaPa JoJo’s house for a Thanksgiving Feast!  (Our first one since Ava was 6 weeks old…)

Elle missed the family Thanksgiving picture so we’ll just give her her own!  Such a sweetie (who I’m just sure has dimples buried deep, deep in those beautiful cheeks!)!

Yum! Yum! Yum!  It was just as delicious as I was imagining!

Kev had one good looking plate 🙂

Though mostly content to chew rings, Elle did enjoy some sweet potatoes and mashed potatoes!

These guys went to town on the dirty dishes… I think they just REALLY wanted it to be dessert time!

My picture taking abilities are terrible when it comes to food, but the pies we made were delightful! Added bonus: we made both crusts Gluten Free so, I will be enjoying the left-overs for many meals in the coming days!

Pumpkin Cream… a home run!  I will call myself a Pumpkin Pie convert 🙂  Well, as long as it’s this Pumpkin Cream Pie!

Great Nana and Great Grandpa and the lovelies!

What Thanksgiving Day would be complete with out naps…

…and a FRIENDS Thanksgiving episode!

We are so very blessed!  Happy Thanksgiving!


It’s Pie Day!

Ava has been on…and on…and on about making a pumpkin pie!  I’m pretty sure she doesn’t even know what a pumpkin pie is and I’m entirely sure she won’t want to eat it once it’s served, but for Thanksgiving we will be making a pumpkin pie!  Well, a Pumpkin Cream Pie to be exact 🙂  Thank you Pioneer Woman for your inspiration!  My anti-pumpkin pie eating self is thoroughly looking forward to trying this creamy creation!

We’ll also be making a Mud Pie just to be on the safe side!  This one is wonderful and reminds me of a wonderful slice I shared with my family many years ago in Hawaii!

Stay tuned for some pie pics and reviews!  Oh I hope they are good!

Happy Almost Thanksgiving!
