Posting has been spotty, yes, to say the least. That's what Thanksgiving breaks are for, however: a total chucking of schedule. Right?
Thanksgiving day was spent at Great Scott's mom's house. She did the traditional feast: homemade rolls, mashed potatos, stuffing, gravy, turkey, corn, green beans, cranberry relish stuff, salad. . . you name it; it was on the table--for a little while at least. My contribution was desserts: pumpkin pie, chocolate satin pie (more like fudge pie), and angel food cake with frozen strawberries. A good day. Spent the afternoon nibbling on leftovers and playing Cranium Cadoo with The Princess, The Fairy and my brother-in-law's girlfriend, L. Had lots of fun and made arrangements with my very thoughtful mother-in-law (who is a great grandmother!) for the girls to spend the weekend in a week.
Came home tired and more stuffed than the turkey had been, with enough leftover pumpkin pie for breakfast the next day.
