pumpkin pie


What a day! I love holidays & all that comes with it.....the food, the family being together- all day, I love knowing we can all be together and no one has to run off to work or school. We are so blessed, aren't we?
We just got home from Thanksgiving with Donovan's family & thought we would announce the winner of the Thanksgiving contest that I started here. Isabella put all the names into a jar and pulled just one. Boy, am I glad I didn't do the contest by any other standard.....Like the most original, the best memory, or the best recipe. Because how on earth could I pick with so many wonderful contributions? It was so fun to read what each one had to write and I love how this connects me to each and everyone of you to know you just a little bit better. So the winner you ask? It was Elsie (Donovan's mom) who told us some favorite dishes she enjoys at Thanksgiving. She will win a Target gift card for $5. I hope she doesn't spend the whole amount on my Christmas gift, because that would be a little embarrassing for her to go so crazy.

I bet Isabella was glad that she read Grandma's name! What a treat! Did Suzy eat that whole pie or was that just for the picture?!

Isabella was happy to pick Grandma, mostly just excited about the drawing she got to conduct....And Suzy ate about 1/2 of that piece of pie. :)

I'm glad I didn't win! The Jones soda Holiday Pack wasn't worth it! It was desserts like Cherry pie, gingerbread, Lemon Meringue,ect... Too normal, and didn't taste too bad. I'm thinking of ordering the Seahawks one for Christmas. And yes, the older kids loved the tradition anyway! :)

Thank you, Isabella for picking my name! You sure did a great job in keeping the secret. Yesterday at Jon and Arlenes' place, I asked Heather and Isabella who the winner was, but Isabella wouldn't tell. Didn't even let on! Thank you, Heather for the gift card. It will be fun to use it.
