However, the weather decided to throw a wrench in my plans. We got snow. Lots and lots of snow.
It makes for a fun picture and it's fun to play in for a while, but it can completely ruin travel plans.
My parents ended up not able to drive up and with them stayed the shrimp salad, pumpkin pie, coconut cream pie and cornbread stuffing. I made up a quick stuffing and read up on turkey preparation. Angela and the kids made a pumpkin pie, because really, is it Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie?
Sadie and Allison made a creative contribution to the meal by making us all adorable Pilgrim hats for place cards.
And of course, no Thanksgiving meal would be complete without pie. Lots and lots of pie. Here we have peanut butter pie, chocolate orange buttermilk pie, pumpkin pie, pecan pie and sour cream pear pie. We named this the "tour of pies" and a few of us hopped on the train, trying to have a small slice of each. I don't think anyone was able to accomplish that feat.
