When he ask early in the day (with a twinkle in his eye) if the pies were all done I KNEW he remembered.
He picked the coconut meringue pie, a pie new to the line up this year. Mom always made coconut meringue but I never really like them. Now I eat coconut and drink coconut drinks all the time so I thought "What the heck - I should try a coconut meringue!" TOTALLY GOOD. Everyone but Boy 3 gobbled it down.
Another Thanksgiving tradition in our house.....see the vase with stick in it? See the hand cut leaves on the table? Those are the makings for our Thankful Tree. You write what you are thankful for on the leaves and stick them to the tree using scotch tape. Fun and easy and so much less stressful for those that are too shy or those that get too emotional to share at your Thanksgiving table.
