Turkey day is upon us

One week from today we will be (Lord willin) deep in Copiah County, Mississippi gathered together with 75+ of Jon’s family (my family too!) waiting to dig into some Turkey and all the deliciousness that comes along with this great American holiday!! I’ve always loved going out to the country for holiday’s as it is just a wonderful place to go. I like being out in the middle of nowhere for a few days. And the older James and Audrey get, the more excited they are every year to go to the country too which makes my heart glad that they are growing up in a family with such wonderful traditions. We head out Monday morning bright and early for New Orleans to spend a few days before heading to Mississippi. Can’t wait!!

In other news, today was the twins Thanksgiving day “party” at school and they got to wear their turkey shirts that they made last week and I got to make a dessert. Audrey and I had a great time picking out what we wanted to make, I love that girl and I love the fact that she likes to look at food with me on Pinterest!!

These little acorns were pretty easy to make. Simple ingredients but it was rather aggravating trying to get the donut holes out of the icing with them breaking apart. I let James and Audrey stick the pretzels in the top because, as much as I hate to admit it sometimes, I am a bit of a control freak in the kitchen. They enjoyed getting to help make them and were ever so excited to carry their contribution into school this morning and show them off to their teachers!! Happy Thanksgiving everybody!!
