Happy Thanksgiving =)


I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving...and you aren't too full =)  We spent the afternoon at Brians grandmothers house.  We had an excellent meal, and good company =) 

It's traditon in our family the night before Thanksgiving that all the kids spend the night at camp.  Brian wasn't able to go because he had to work so Emma went out with my brother in law and the rest of the kids.  They had sooo much fun out there.  They made memories that they will remember forever.  That makes me smile =)

Since all the kids were at camp, and Brian was working my mother in law and I went Christmas shopping!!  For Emma's big gift this year we decided to go with a doll house of some sort.  And I found the perfect one at Sams Club the other day, so we went last night and picked it up.  I'm pretty sure she's going to love it!

 
 
And then we did the WalMart thing, and that place was packed!  So we headed to dinner.  It was nice to be able to go out and enjoy some nice quiet time and get some things accomplished.
 
When I got back home last night I decided to try making a pecan pie.  Must say, it was a success!  And everyone loved it today at Thanksgiving lunch!
 
 
 
This was before it went into the oven.
 
 
And here it is finished!
 
 
 
 
Next time i'd like to try making my own pie crust!
 
 
So this morning Emma got home around 8:30ish or so.  I got up and made a coffee cake and a cup of coffee and Emma wanted hot cocoa.  So she enjoyed a cup of hot cocoa, a bagel, and watched the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade.  I love to watch the parade as much as her!
 
 
 
 
 
We headed over to Brians grandmothers around noon...we got 1/2 way there and I realized I didn't bring my camera =(  I was sooo bummed.  So the next couple are from my phone. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Our meal was excellent!  Lots of turkey, potato, stuffing, gravy, peas, squash, rolls and sweet potato casserole!  Yumm!!
 
We got home, and it was time to decorate our Christmas tree!!!  We usually always do it Thanksgiving afternoon or the day after.  Emma loves to decorate it!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
So it took me an entire day to do this post.  And that is because I finally got the dreaded message when uploading photos, that I was at maxiumum capacity or whatever for my photos.  So I opted to purchase the extra 25gb or what not.  So now that i'm officially paying for this blog, maybe i'll blog every single day.  HA! =) 
 
I hope each and everyone of you enjoyed your Thanksgiving.  I know we sure did!  And now that Thanksgiving is over...we are on our official countdown now for Disney! 
 We are at 14 days now!  Exactly 2 weeks from today we'll be on the plane flying there =)  It's not like i'm excited or anything....hehe =)

  1. You guys have been busy and look like you had a great Thanksgiving!

    Great job on the pie! I am impressed. I think over this Christmas time, I am going to practice making pies. I have never done them and love to bake, so I think it's time I learned.

    Okay, so is something up with blogger right now? I have been getting the message that I can't upload since Wednesday, which is why I haven't been blogging... I keep hoping to get on later and it will work. Normally if I got that message and went and used our other computer it would work for me, but not this time. :( I REALLY do not want to pay to do this, so I don't know what I am going to do!

    1. I'm not very good at making pies, but I was pretty impressed with this one. I'm definately going to try and make my own crust very soon though!

      I tried from my laptop and our desktop computer and it wouldn't let me upload either =( So I broke down and finally paid for it. I got the one that is $2.49 a month. Ughhh. Makes me kinda mad, but I love blogging way too much and would miss it. And I would miss your blog too if you stopped!!!! haha =)

    2. Weird! I got that same message last night! I ended up paying the $2 or whatever to not deal with the hassle lol.

    3. Now i'm finding this really weird since we all got it. Maybe it's just their way of getting us to pay for it! haha

    4. I know! I was a little confused...but decided since it only cost $2 and you can cancel at any time that I would just do it---and if i discover a way around it later I'll just cancel!

      Although now, for the first time in months, I can finally upload a picture header to my blog---yay! It's been telling me forever that I needed to pay in order to do that.
