Up for air

Well, Thanksgiving was a success. As this was our second official Thanksgiving this month, I ordered the precooked turkey and side dishes from PW Market, but did manage to cook a pumpkin and turn it into a pie before dinner (not nearly as hard as it sounds). I also made my frist blackberry pie ever (per Hubby's request) sans recipe. According to the dessert eaters, it was quite tasty. I think it helped that Bob took the kids to see Harry Potter while I cooked and that I marinated the blackberries in vodka overnight.

Then, just for shits and giggles, I organized a 40 person baby shower at my mother-in-law's house on Saturday. I think all who attended had fun and it gave me an excuse to use my vintage tea cups - not something I get to do often ever. I think I can go for a while without seeing pastel colored anything. Thankfully the coming season usually involves bolder colors.

Now, I figure I'll relax by easing into birthdays and Christmas. No problem.
