Here I am practicing! Liam was trying to hold his bottle with one hand and had his other hand on his belly! A few years later and it'll be tucked into his waist band. What a typical guy! ha!
The babes enjoying a sunset Thanksgiving dinner together. ha!
Using Sarah's pastry cutter - Ty walked in while I was doing this part and asked "What is that step called?" I looked at him and with a slight giggle replied "Making the dough" - he's too cute!
3 pie doughs were then rolled.
I even used pie weights for the first time! I enjoyed this part ! This step finally had a cool name: "Blind baking" - although Ty renamed it to "Empty baking" because the blind part didn't make sense to him.
Ty helped with this part. We cut out leaves out of pie crust and layed them around the edges of each pie. Again thanks Rachel for the tips & tools!

Patty's specialty - Cranberry wild rice. I'd LOVE to have this recipe! (hint hint)
A sad little Ty because his wifey was taking pictures and not filling her plate with food. He was tired of waiting!
Here's almost all of us. Ty's probably off playing with his football, Liam is in the stroller under the camera and Don is behind the lens. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! We missed our families, but thanks to our SoCal friends for making this such a special and memorable Thanksgiving! We definitely gobbled til we wobbled (well maybe I was the only one wobbling but that was Tabor's fault!)
