Mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce
My grandma Harris used to make the BEST rolls ever... orange rolls! I have the recipe on Facebook, if you want it. They're seriously SO good! We've been having the leftover ones for breakfast.
I'm usually not a fan of sweet potatoes, but I know Doug really likes them. I made him these candied sweet potatoes just for the occasion. And I actually liked them! Amazing what you can find on the internet.
I didn't get a picture of my turkey right out of the oven (I was too busy scrambling to put everything together!) Here it is on my beloved bone china.
Lincoln saw me with the camera out, and goes, "Cheese!" Had to take a picture.
And then Jack followed suit with his, "Cheese!"
I wanted to make a pumpkin pie (Doug's favorite,) a banana cream pie (my favorite,) and a chocolate pie (one that I thought the boys would like.) Since three pies is a lot all at once for us, I made the banana cream pie last week. It was gone in 2 or 3 days. But out of fairness, I did give a quarter of it to my neighbor. I made pumpkin pie and chocolate pie for the desserts on Thanksgiving, thinking the boys would like the chocolate pie. I was wrong. I don't think they ate a THING for dinner OR dessert. I only got a picture of the pumpkin pie, and I can't figure out how to turn it.
Earlier this week, I broke out the stockings
This is Lincoln seeing the tree for the first time, right after naps today. See the white dust or something on my shirt? Yeah, didn't even know it was there until I saw it in this picture. Ahh, the life of a mom.
Here's our awesome tree all put together and squished into our tiny place!
I went to wash Lincoln's bedding a month or so ago, and noticed that all the corners on it were yellowing. It turns out that his comfort with this blanket is to put the corners of it in his mouth, and suck on it. I try to wash it once a week, but it still stays that yellowish-gray color! I caught a quick shot of him putting it in his mouth.
Here he is admiring the tree before bedtime.I LOVE this time of year and breaking out the Christmas music. Bring on the holiday spirit!
