This year I was in charge of dessert at my moms. I took the leap, and decided to try and make some pies. I love to bake, but hate to cook. Pies have always seemed scary to me. The whole crust and filling situation seemed complicated and delicate. Cakes and brownies, no problem! I went with apple pie since my husband loves it, and pumpkin which I am a fan of. The pumpkin pie turned out great. I was so nervous because I got the recipe from this cookbook, and it had a sour cream and sugar mixture added on the top, which I have never seen. Turns out, it is really yummy! The apple pie was good. However, Michael hates added sugar, and this pie is filled with it. I was half paying attention when I decided to go with the recipe and as I was making it I was thinking he wouldn’t like it. He did try it, but it was too sweet for him. My parents liked it. So that made me happy.
The day was as good as it could have been for us. We spent it with family and good friends, making memories. We missed our babies, and at times I am still in disbelief that they are gone. Never did I imagine that they would not be with us this Thanksgiving or Christmas. We are extremely thankful for each precious moment we had with them. I’m thankful I got to be a mom.
Here is what our Thanksgiving looked like.
I hope everyone enjoyed every moment they had with their loved ones.
