This is truely the most wonderful time of the year for me! I do wish we got a little snow, but I can drive not too far away and find LOTS of it! This year has been extremely cold all of a sudden. Which is quite unusal for us here in AZ! We're hoping all of our plants, that were finally starting to not look brand new (three years old), survived the drastic drop in temperatures... from highs in the 70's to highs only in the 40's almost overnight it seems!
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. John and I hosted it at our house and had the BEST time getting everything ready, using all our fancy silverware and dishes, and most of all having the family at our house! They don't all make it over to our house at the same time very often. The turkey turned our perfect, after we finally got it unthawed and cooking. John's non-traditional stuffing and green beans were also delicious. Plus we learned last year that homemade cranberry sauce is so easy to make and tastes so much better! We also had chocolate pie of course, I secretly love that I've corrupted "the grandkids" because they all chose chocolate pie ;). This year we also made John's dad a pineapple pie. It was delicious and I kept my promise! Kami and Jenny both helped out tremendously by making rolls and mashed potatoes, both which were (and aways are) highlights of dinner and leftovers. It was by far one of my most favorite Thanksgivings ever!
