Thanksgiving, a Pinterest Sunday, anmd Randomness

 Thanksgiving came and went so fast. I had my parents in town, as well as my little brother. Did I get any pictures? Not a one. My camera did not even come out once. LOSER!

We also did not go around and say what we are thankful for. My kids think it is silly, and always say something like "apple pie". Here is what I would have said I am thankful for:
*my kids who make me proud, every single day
*my husband who works hard to support us and make a better life for us
*my family for all their support and unconditional love
*my mom for telling me my kids are great and that she loves being with us
*apple pie

And we are now 2 for 2 on Thanksgiving breaks. Literally two breaks in two years, last year with Celeste's ankle break, and this year Sophie broke her arm/wrist! She hurt it playing flag football in PE the last day of school. It did not get better all weekend, so xrays on Monday confirmed a break!

 Also, my mom has liked reading about the fun things we do on Pinterest and wanted to have a Pinterest Sunday with us. She would have preferred a craft of some sort, but we did not want to make a run to the store so...Cupcakes it was!!! We settled on Raspberry Lemonade cupcakes due to it's simplicity and lack of exotic ingredients.

 These pictures do not do them justice, the were really pretty. Light pink frosting and lighter red berries, but oh well!
 I think they earned a "B" across the board. They were light and tasty, but did not have quite enough flavor.

And just because, a picture of some fried goat cheese, another Pinterest recipe. Celeste said, "I don't know if I will like it.." I replied, "it's cheese and it's fried, what's not to like?"...

I realized I don't have a single photo from Thanksgiving OR my birthday. From now on- when I host I designate a photographer! The cupcakes look delish, and I could see the pink frosting in the bottom one.
I like that you included apple pie in your list of thankfulness :)

How funny that you got a shot of the cupcakes, but NOT your family! Now that you have the iPhone, you have no excuses. The camera on it is amazing :)

I hope Sophie is doing ok and is on her way to recovery.
