Full of Thanks...and Pie

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, spending time at both of our parent's homes in Salt Lake. One tradition the Jensen family does is eating their pie the night before Thanksgiving so that you can actually enjoy it and not be so stuffed from Thanksgiving dinner that it's just another course. They call it Pie Night and invite families from their ward over for it. This year there were 12 different kinds of pies, including my favorite, key lime. I have a new favorite now, however, but it almost can't be called new since it tastes just like key lime. It's pink lemonade pie and it was delicious! Thanks for all the yumminess, Bob!Hyrum said you have to have at least 6 slices of pie or you can't leave, so he had to come through on the deal as well, and I don't think it was as easy as he'd thought. Here he is after "being stuffed to the rafters!" (Brian Regan)
Jeniann, Miya, Shelly, and Taylor enjoying their pieWe have so much to be thankful for this year (like every year) and I feel so truly grateful for the blessings heaped upon us by our Father in Heaven. I have the most wonderful husband, the cutest baby girl, awesome family who we love spending time with, wonderful friends (both old and new), a good education that helps me be a better mom, my hubby's education that he enjoys and that got us a good job, and especially the gospel of Jesus Christ that brings purpose and meaning to every other part of our lives. We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! Bring on Christmas!

Pie that is what I am talking about. That sounds fabulous! We like the idea so much we are going to try to implement it as a new tradition for our family next year. I love it!

What a fun idea. I think I may have to start that in my family!
