Pie! Pie! Pie!

What a good Thanksgiving we had. Well it has actually been a good week. Full of food (literally), family, sleepovers, food, movies, games, and food. We were only at our apartment to sleep, other than that we were out and about doing festive things! Here's a little recap to our Thanksgiving.

 The morning of Thanksgiving we got up in time to watch the Macy's Day Parade. I love watching it every year! D's sister Kiersten stayed the night with us and it was just nice to have a guest with us. While we were watching the parade we (Kiersten mostly) made a delicious buttermilk blueberry cake. Yum! Got the unhealthy eating started early. It wasn't too sweet or too heavy on the stomach so it allowed us to contain our appetite for the main course of the day.

This is an unfortunate picture with an unfortunate story. I was in charge of making a couple pies for our Thanksgiving gathering. I decided to make key lime pie. Recipe here. And I also decided to make a homemade chocolate pie. Yum! As I was putting it into the refrigerator to cool, my hand changed position which made the pie turn completely over and splat on the ground! I was devastated. As you recall, Kiersten was there so I tried so hard to stay calm about it. I wanted to burst out into tears and I was basically just freaking out on the inside and wondering what in the world am I going to do. Quickly came up with a pumpkin pie recipe and eventually everything was ok!

Here is the pumpkin pie!

Perfect Thanksgiving Day pictures. She is just so cute!

Friday we went to the girls BYU vs UNC soccer game. Usually I would have cheered on BYU, but come on it was North Carolina, I had to cheer them on. It was a pretty intense game, but North Carolina is just that good and they came out with the win. I was really excited, D was a little disappointed for he was going for BYU. I did stand out; there were not too many Carolina fans in the crowd,
but I held strong as I cheered on NC.

Saturday night we went to the BYU game. Another intense game. A lot of fun!
...and the many faces of Lizzy and I.

We did so much with his family this weekend. So many things to be grateful for in this life.
Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving!
