I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.. I was excited to kick off the holidays in our new home with Thanksgiving…God has blessed us so much it is sometimes hard for me to comprehend it all.
My favorite part of Thanksgiving is make the pies the night before. All the kids that can all gather at our house and we go into production.
I know that anyone that makes pies have their own little secrets that make them wonderful…one of ours is…when making the crust my husband always uses this tool… I have no idea what it is called but I know that it has made all the difference in our crust. ( editor’s note: Its a pastry cutter)
Our other secret….we always use six different kinds of apples in our apple pies. Trust me…it makes them the best.
We had about a dozen people coming for Thanksgiving this year. Unlike the 24 guests that we have had in the past. We decided to keep it smaller this year, just in case our daughter decided to go into labor.
Sure enough, her and her husband were at the hospital on Thanksgiving day. His family and ours gathered at our house trying to act as if nothing was going on.
From that moment on it looked like a scene from a sitcom…my husband and I grabbed the toddler and ran to the hospital leaving our guests in the wind.
My daughter wanted her son to be there as soon as the baby was delivered and it was our job to make sure that happened.
At 5:05 Thanksgiving Day…Grace Renee joined our family.
What a perfect Thanksgiving….
