We've decided to start a blog.

I've tried to do this before actually. I just never have quite figured it out. Since it's Thanksgiving it would be appropriate to post some Thanksgiving pictures. We had an amazing Thanksgiving for the most part. Missed having a ton of family around and the chaos but it was still nice. We had Turkey, of course, that I brined over night. Then we put it in a 500 degree oven for 30 minutes. The skin was beautifully browned and tasty. However, despite the tastiness I have decided I do not like Turkey. Next year we will do a small turkey and a ham.

Lauren made the pumpkin pie. She's such the pastry chef in our family. Loves to bake and try new things. This year for Christmas she's getting the whole complete season of Ace of Cakes from the Food Network. She's starting her own business next year making cakes for special occasions. She's decided when she grows up she'll be a pastry chef and marine biologist.

Emily and Jackson just enjoyed eating. Here are some pictures of our table setting, turkey and Lauren's pie.
