Thanksgiving is approaching

I LOVE the holidays! Although we won't be going to Spokane for Thanksgiving (we miss you J & Mons!) I'm getting pretty excited for Thanksgiving. Last year my extended family decided to institute an annual Pie Fest and Turkey bowl. We have a family bowling tournament and then after bowling we eat ridiculous amounts of pie.. a pie fest of sorts :) Every female age 18 and over is REQUIRED to bring a home-made pie. I waited til the last minute last year and ended up with a not so impressive pie so this year I decided to start earlier.

A couple weeks ago we went to Sam's club and had a sample of some sweet potato pie and it was SO good! I was suprised because I really don't like pumpkin pie but I craved sweet potato pie all week. So this weekend I decided I ought to practice and attempted a sweet potato pie. I didn't take a picture but all those who partook enjoyed thoroughly. My best friend Lexi said it was fabulous and even had a second piece! That's saying something. Needless to say I was pretty proud, and grateful for such great ego stroking friends :) Here's hoping my second one comes out just as tasty.

That sounds like so much fun. Thanks for letting us be your guinea pigs. It really was delicious! And thanks for coming over & playing with us. It was a lot of fun. I always love seeing you!

Miranda, darling, what am I going to do with you? It sounds too scrumptious to miss out, so you must post the recipe ASAP! Or email me or something!!!
