Give thanks

Braid it, baby update:ย I was a little concerned about the braided crust, but for a first-timer, I’d say it turned out pretty well. I just cut off the extra dough around the edges once it was placed in the pie dish and used that for the braid.

And while the pie was cooking I managed to steal another Pinterest idea for the relish tray I have to bring for the second Thanksgiving get-together tomorrow afternoon. It was so cute, I just had to do it. Plus, I think my nieces will love it!

Gobble, gobble.

It’s hard to believe another Thanksgiving is here. This year I am especially thankful for:

My handsome husband

Our furry baby boy, Karl.
