Food makes me happy (especially mashed potatoes), therefore Thanksgiving makes me happy! Paul and I headed over to the East side of the state to spend Thanksgiving with his family. Monique and I did most of the cooking, although I left the turkey to Paul's mom. I have only cooked one turkey in my life, so I figure it was better left to the experts! Overall, the meal turned out yummy. I was quite proud of my pies! I had made an apple and a pumpkin cream pie. The apple was a new recipe, which turned out great. The top was a cinnamon and brown sugar crust. Mmm.
Another excitement from Thanksgiving was that Marc had Caden. I can't believe how big he is getting. We taught him "sooo big" and he loved pulling Mac's tail:-)
The rest of the weekend was spent with Paul putting up Christmas lights and me baking Christmas cookies. Paul just bought this machine that syncs music to the lights outside so they blink according to the beat. It is very him:-) There seem to be a few glitches with it, but hopefully he figures it out.
My cookies turned out well. I made Chocolate Peanut Butter Covered Cherries, Lemon Cookies, Meringue Cookies, Chocolate Mint Bars, Almond Rasberry Cookies, and Sugar Cookies with icing. Mmm. I'm obsessed:-)
