The last few weeks...

The last few weeks have been CRAZY-busy around here. (Thus, the lack of blog entries.) Thanksgiving was good. We had Josh's dad, Dave, here from Oklahoma for a few days. We have done Thanksgiving with him for a few years now because Josh's favorite holiday is and football!! Dave loves to watch football with us, especially if Texas is playing Oklahoma. (We're not talking about Oklahoma right now though.)

So, I made a turkey, three pies (pumpkin, apple, and a cherry one for the neighbors), candied yams, squash, Sister Schubert's rolls, and Josh and Dave made their two pans of stuffing. All of this for three people and Lincoln. Don't judge me... hee hee

Lincoln loved having turkey and all the fixin's. He really loves sweet potatoes, so the yams were a big hit, as well as the rolls. I tried to sneak some veggies in there too, which he liked.

By the time Dave had to leave, we were all stuffed and in need some stretchy pants. It was good to see him though and he had fun with Lincoln.

Now I'm working on our Church Christmas Luau this Saturday. I'm making a luau pig cake. I've been inspired by all those cake shows on t.v., so we'll see how mine turns out.

I hope EVERYONE had a wonderful Thanksgiving and will have a JOYOUS Christmas season.
Lots of Love!!!
