Menu Plan Monday. Nov. 26, 2012
Hello, Sweet Readers!
I have missed you! Life has been so busy lately and blogging never made it to the top of my to-do list. I hope you all are doing well and had a very Happy Thanksgiving!
Our Thanksgiving started with friends and ended with family. We all got up early to run a Turkey Trot 5K with our buddies. There were 13 of us. The morning was beautiful and everyone was in a festive mood! We all agree if you run a 5K on Thanksgiving, you can eat as much pie as you want! After the race, my parents came to visit! Thankfully, my mom cooked the turkey and the traditional sides... homemade dressing, cranberry sauce, and macaroni and cheese. I made a pumpkin pie, a big green salad, and sweet potatoes. Little Polka Dot and my mom made a beautiful mincemeat pie. No real meat in there, I promise! Just spiced fruit. It was delicious! We had the best time cutting little leaves out of the dough to decorate the pie. My son even strayed away from the football game to help with the leaves. He made his into footballs... so funny!
Last night, we decorated our Christmas tree! It is one of my most favorite things we do as a family.
I'll add some photos soon!
Also, Polka Dot Skies is back open! I closed it for a while to prepare for two holiday shows. The shows were fun and now that they are over, I will be adding some new things to the shop! 15% off today with coupon code MERRY.
