Giving Thanks in Alabama

Well, here I sit in Theresa's kitchen, blogging about our Thanksgiving celebration 2008. We drove on Wednesday and arrived at 1:30am. Thursday Lou Anne and I spent the day cooking, cleaning, shopping, cooking, and cleaning again. It was very festive and fun. The highlight of the day was Selah's homemade from scratch pumpkin pie. We brought 2 pumpkins with us from home. None of us had made "the real deal" pumpkin pie before, so we gave it a go. We baked the pumpkin, made the puree, I made a homemade crust, and we baked the pie. It seemed like a LOT of work, but in the end, it was worth it! Next time, however, I would make the puree one day, the crust another day, and then on the holiday put it together. When Selah said she wanted to make a pumpkin pie from an actual pumpkin, I thought it would be fun and yummy. And it was! Great idea Selah! Even those in the family who don't usually eat pumpkin pie thought it was dee-lish!!!

We miss Andrew and Joy :( Wish they would have been able to make it.
