Homemade Pumpkin Pie

I finished some calligraphy work that my sister-in-law had asked me to make for her and barely made it to the post office in time to send it off!  The line was a lot shorter than I'd anticipated for it being the last working day for the post office before the Thanksgiving holiday, though, so the girls and I were in and out of there within ten minutes.  They behaved well, too, so that was a plus!  :)

On our way home, I called Cameron to see where he was in the process of running an errand for me and unfortunately, he was still in line...he'd left before us, too!  Poor guy!

While we waited for Daddy to come home, the girls and I played in the living room:

Finally Daddy was home and the girls and he jumped on the trampoline...their favorite activity to do with Daddy!

Odette kept wanting to try to climb down on her own, but she never actually ever got the real courage to do it:

After dinner, Alegria was so exhausted that she crashed on Daddy's chest while we watched O'Reilly.  I was afraid she wouldn't go to bed if she napped that late, but I guess she was so tired from the day's activities that it didn't affect her sleep, thank goodness.  :)

Once the girls were in bed, I got to the task of making a homemade pumpkin pie (minus the crust!) for tomorrow's Thanksgiving feast:


I was EXTREMELY happy with the end result.  The house smelled amazing while the pumpkin pie baked...and I can't wait to have some tomorrow!

Good night everyone!  :)
