Yup, this holiday was fantastic! We had a great time together and with family. Let the Christmas season begin!
Batman made an appearance after dinner! He decided Kerry was worth taking care of!
Charlotte made me a cake! Don't you just love her tights?! Charlotte does as well. She asks to put on tights every morning. It's often the only way I can get her out of pajamas which she also loves wearing! (But really, who doesn't?)
Mum and Dad. Happy, happy, happy.
Mimi's fantabulous cake. I'm sure I've mentioned it before but the frosting is a Luptak (my dad's maternal grandparents) family recipe and the cake is Golden Chiffon. Heaven!!
Charlotte puts her babies to bed. It just amazes me how wired girls are to be motherly and be sympathetic and kind.
There was lots of hugs on Thanksgiving!
Jay and Rachel. They drove up from CT at the end of the day to have pie!
Thanksgiving was a success! Tired happy kids and tired happy adults!
I did mis-time the turkey though and it came out a bit early- 1pm but oh well. I found a new recipe for baked mashed potatoes that was just ridiculously awesome. It was made with pancetta (which my friend Charles told me last week was Italianizing an American standard but I disagree!), but really you could leave it out if you wanted- it would have been great either way. I prepared the turkey by covering it in kosher salt and herbs the night before so the flavor was amazing!
Very satisfying indeed!!
