today was big c's turkey fest. not so cute middle schoolers running around and being insane because a long holiday is coming. still had to eat turkey. thank goodness my mother in law makes a ham for thanksgiving!! but we had the most AWESOME dessert ever. it's pumpkin pie cake. try it. i guarantee you will love it. and if not, i will come and finish it for you!

Yellow cake mix? I'm so there! Yummmmmmmmmy.

I have never made a turkey. Not ever. Seems way too grown up. Not going to change this year, although I just BOUGHT my first turkey. My BIL deep fries turkeys all day long every year and Jon thinks we need a crispy bird. How Homer can you get?

Happy Thanksgivng Kay!!! Have a wonderful week with your great family!
