Nuts Straight From 424 Madison Street....

Well, it's that time again. I am spending most of my day getting ready to head home for Thanksgiving. It involves laundry, packing, organizing and....BAKING. I am baking Pecan pies. We have a nice pecan grove and my Doodelbugs picked up the nuts and I spent several nights cracking them (not the fun part), and today I finally got to bake them. Ema and Gunner looked on while #5 took a short nap. I thought the pies looked beautiful!
With the leftover nuts we candied them and the Doodlebugs scarfed them right down, I still have my sister's cheese cakes to make(her b-day is Thanksgiving day) and I also have Aimee's mash potatoes to whip up too. I will do those at mom and dad's. I can't wait to get there!

Hello! I popped over from He and Me & 3's blog. These look yummy and the pix of your children are beautiful! I do hope you'll post a picture of the boys dressed alike (once the poop is gone, lol!). My oldest "fingerpainted" his crib with it when he was younger. Wasn't that special!?
