We had a great Thanksgiving this year!  We had a smaller group, so I had decided to just make the pumpkin cheesecake. However, Anson came home from work saying that everyone wanted an apple pie. So I agreed to make an apple pie. I was then told that people were concerned that one apple pie would not be enough.  So, I made two.  For those of you counting, that’s 3 pies for 9 people 🙂

I managed to get one picture of the group, so here it is:


Thank you everyone who came! It was a lot of fun!

Now, when do I take out the Christmas decorations? Can I hold out until December? Smile

I recently got back from a trip to MD. I somehow managed to not pick up the camera until my last day there.  While I was there, I got to visit with family and we even had an early Thanksgiving! But, like I said, no pictures of that stuff. I did manage to take a ton of pictures of my nieces on the last evening, but they’re pretty random. So, here are a few of them (just for fun):

Okay, I have over 80 of these, so I better stop. And before Angie asks—yes, I will send you all the pictures!

Well, Halloween has come and gone.  We did not have a single trick-or-treater this year. I am convinced it is because our driveway is so long—nobody thinks it’s worth the walk. Fortunately, someone was looking for donations of extra Halloween candy to give to high schoolers, so it was pretty easy to get it out of the house.  I did get the world’s best Halloween card from Kira. It said “I wish I could trick or treat at your house.” Too cute!

Yesterday I took down all of the Halloween decorations. It only took about 30 minutes! Unfortunately, we don’t have a good stash of Thanksgiving decorations. I went to the store to get some, but they are only selling Christmas decorations—bummer! I guess maybe I will have to make some myself 🙂

Anson and I have been enjoying some relaxation time in the evening now that I don’t have to go to work. We discovered a channel that plays old He-Man and She-Ra episodes!!!  They don’t make shows like that any more! I still get butterflies in my tummy when She-Ra’s sword does the (not one, not two, but….) THREE sparkle animations. I used to want that sword! Heck, I still want that sword!  Anyway, it just reminded us of all the cool shows that were around when we were kids: Thundercats (Anson watched this, not me), Gummi Bears, Smurfs, Rainbow Brite (Me, not Anson), etc…

Tomorrow I am flying to Maryland. I’ll be visiting until the 22nd. Hopefully Anson won’t run out of food before I get back 🙂
