Getting ready

for Thanksgiving tomorrow.

The OnlyChild is home for the weekend. Hurray!

She bought me a university sweatshirt


Mr. P took her out to buy a new ukelele (hers broke during the move). Why can't this kid take a picture that's not goofy?


We baked apple pie for tomorrow's dessert. My apple pie is famous (well, within my little family).


With the leftover pastry and apples, I made little tarts. Those are for today. Numnumnum. They're pretty much all gone by now.



I also made pumpkin cheesecake from Anna's recipe.  It's been a long time since I baked a cheesecake. I remembered it being much harder to make. I had enough filling to make a mini version so I think we'll have to do some QC on the little one. You know, just to make sure it's good enough for Thanksgiving dinner. My friend Kim and her boyfriend are joining us.


AbbyDog and DerbyDog helped us with all the work. Sort of.


Once they realized nothing good was going to magically drop to the floor for them to gobble up, they got out from under our feet and took a nap instead.


A nap...what a great idea!

Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends!

Happy thanksgiving (we don't have that holiday in Australia). I'm glad OnlyChild is home for the weekend - that makes it extra special. Pumpkin cheesecake - never heard of it; is it sweet?
