A Happy Thanksgiving

Ivey was baptized in front of this cornucopia this past Sunday. It was beautiful--even though she wailed when the cold water touched her head. Jordan and I arranged the cornucopia with the help of my mom and grandma and some potatoes and peppers from Jordan's family's farm. It's a tradition for us to do the cornucopia in memory of my godmother, Emma.

I finally figured out how to make pumpkin pie from an actual pumpkin. We had one for the cornucopia anyway, and I'm not into buying the Libby canned pumpkin ever since I heard it was part of the Nestle boycott. The pie was pretty good, especially for a first try, and it was so much fun to make. Toasted pumpkin seeds = nice bonus.

Suzi had a good time with Uncle Paul (pictured above) and Uncle Bit and Mama Susie (my grandma) who were visiting.

It was a good day. Now, let Christmas officially begin :-)
