t day {better late than never}

taking this week to do a little catch up, so here's turkey day:
we got together with the gang for turkey day this year since we were all staying in the city. we divided up all the staples. J and I were in charge of sweet potatoes, rolls, apple pie/ice cream and something else I'm forgetting now that its a month after the fact.
this new recipe/new oven put last years potato debacle to rest and finally redeemed my potato cooking skills in Jordan's eyes {thank goodness}sorry that's a through the oven shot.
you have to be VERY careful or pie crust from scratch can drive you to full blown insanity. 
 that braiding business is harder than it looks. especially when you have to lift it all up because you forgot to put the pieces of butter over the apples. 
I die for Ava's cheeks 
the best turkey I've ever had, for real. {sorry mom} thanks to hg and slade.
no meal complete without a dash of weirdness
pause for a jig by baby F 
bon appetit
side note: I think my friends would probably say I'm an infamous baby-talker. I can't help it, I truthfully don't even realize I'm doing it sometimes. when I'm near a baby I just brighten up a bit and my voice gets all syrupy as a result. anyways the point of this side note is to say whenever I'm around oliver my baby talking morphs into the same kind as andrea's. I start calling him buddy in the exact same inflection as she does. maybe I'm subconsciously trying to trick ollie into thinking I'm his mom so I can steal him away in the night. if he ever goes missing you'll know where to find him.
extra side note: I also rock side to side bouncing a bit when I'm standing next to someone who is holding a baby even though all I'm holding is my handbag. maybe I need a few more baby-less friends...
there is much to be grateful for and I want to do a better job of showing it.
I'm ready for a new year filled with thankfulness.
