Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

It's funny I chose a picture of the pie to show you here, as this was the only let down of the whole meal. But, the picture was good. You may be seeing a change in the quality of photos around here...provided I can figure out how to work our new early Christmas present properly ; )

Everything else was just perfect - made even better having so many of our family members present.

A few notes:
> Brining - Definitely worth it
> My new love - Bechamel sauce
> There is such thing as too much food
> The energy contained in three boys aged 2 1/2, 4, and 5 could fuel a power plant
> Having somebody bring mashed potatoes totally eliminates the last minute rush of T-day dinner (everything else just gets popped in the oven!)
> Thanksgiving may be my new favorite holiday!

Hope you had a good one as well!

Today's thing I am thankful for! This community and blogging in general has become so important to me. It is so incredible to connect with like-minded people daily. I really appreciate the support you offer, and hope that I am able to give you the kudos you deserve in return. I also am thankful for the blog buddies that I communicate with via email. It is so nice to get to know people, and have somebody to *talk* to who doesn't need wikipedia to know what I am talking about (or for that matter even knows what wikipedia is). Hugs and a big Thank You to all of you!

My son is 2 1/2 and his energy alone could fuel a small power plant!
I didn't end up making the gravy quite like the recipe. We bought a small turkey and it came with a gravy packet thing which I used with a few additions. My non canned green bean casserole came out wonderful. I can send you the link if you want.
Now its time to think about Christmas, huh?

Well aren't you the sweetest thing???!!! Your new camera takes great pics! Enjoy it, I find for me pictures are another way of keeping track of time. I take a ton and wouldn't part with a single one. i would be lost with out my camera to capture all of the tiny little stuff that may escape my memory years from now.
