Enjoying the Holidays!

Today we made pies for Thanksgiving! It is something we look forward to every year. We made two pumpkins, one fudge, one chocolate chip, and a lemon. The first time I made the lemon pie I messed up pretty big! I burnt the filling, and forgot to pre-bake the crust. I had to do everything over again! I think that is a good reason for me to start cooking a little more!We also made Grandma's home made stuffing, fresh squeezed orange juice, a 40 foot string of popcorn for our Christmas tree, and apple sauce. (We got the idea for the apple sauce from Lindsey.)

It was definitely a fun day in the kitchen! I thought I'd post a few pictures tonight since I won't be on here for a few days.





This is the first year we put popcorn strings on our tree.
I think it looks so pretty!






My sister Bethany made the apple sauce.




Have a great Thanksgiving!
