Last time you saw me, I was enjoying some raspberry pancakes the last full weekend in November, and here we are in December! CHRISTMAS SEASON. Oh, tidings of joy to you. :)
What have been up to since then? Well, on Tuesday, I made this awesome apple pie:
(Yes, it was as delicious as it looks. And that is a leaf, not a tree cut-out.)
Because I was exhausted Tuesday night, I got up super early on Wednesday to make baked beans, only to find my onion was spoiled. So I took Zach to work, grabbed another onion, and spent a few hours at home. Then I went in for three hours before the college closed early! Score!
We headed home, loaded up the car with our stuff and "Pancake," and headed down to central Arkansas.
Thursday meant Thanksgiving, and here are a
few many photos from the day:
This is what happens when the photog and back-up photog are in the picture...and your back-up back-up just had shoulder surgery--iPhone photo!

Pancake went to her new home Thanksgiving night, but unfortunately, she escaped out the door the next day! I am clinging to these verses (Matthew 6:25-34). Pray that she found a better home and is not in the cold--hungry, afraid, and missing us. We just cried when we heard.
I did a little shopping on Black Friday by myself. I didn't get out until 11, but I still got everything I wanted and more! I hit up JCP, Children's Place, Old Navy, and Michael's (and Walmart--but not for BF shopping). The crowds weren't too bad except at Old Navy, where I waited 30+ minutes to check out, BUT I got a coupon for having a pence in my pocket. :) (They were doing a scavenger hunt-type thing.)
Friday evening, we headed to NLR, but I will have to post about our adventures there tomorrow.
What did you do this Thanksgiving?
