It's A No Picture Post

Just a quick update tonight. I took Ava for her nine month doctor appointment today and she was 19.8 pounds and almost 28 inches long. She's gettin' on up there.

I went to Trader Joe's today for some treats for Becky and while I was there I found the little sugar pumpkins. They're the ones you use to make pumpkin pie with. I've never made a pumpkin pie before and so I decided what better way to make it than from scratch! I will be attempting this this week. Pray for me. Pray for my kitchen!

I also picked up pecans and sweet potatoes. I wasn't originally planning on making a sweet potato pie, but hey why not?!

Do you notice anything here? No, they aren't all for us. We are going to a friend's house for Thanksgiving and I am bringing the dessert. What better desserts than pie. Maybe I'll change one of those from pie to a bread or something. I don't know, I'm just going to be creative.

The girls are out of school after tomorrow. Again. Pray. For. Me. Please. I guess I'm pretty excited. I don't have any plans for Wednesday or Thursday evening, so we will probably just hang out at the house and let them play all day. It's been so nice here during the day that it's perfect play weather. At night, it's freezing, but then it warms up so nicely. No wonder we always have such runny noses.

Anyway, I'll stop with the rambling. I hope your week is nice and slow. (You know, so you can enjoy the Holiday)

Hannah & Mallorie are great cooks - they could mash your pumpkin & sweet potato for your pies! Have a great Thanksgiving! Be thinking of you, BUT I'll soon be there for Christmas Holidays. Yeah!

great minds think alike, because i am going to try to make pumpkin pie from scratch, too! i am tired of the frozen ones so i volunteered this year. i have a back-up plan: canned pumpkin and a refrigerated pie shell!
