The kids love being part of the pie contest, and even though it means a lot of extra time in the kitchen for me, I love helping them with their creations! . Logan wanted an M&M pie, so we found a recipe for a peanut butter cream pie with an Oreo-peanutM&M crust. It was so rich that he couldn’t even finish one bite. He told me that it was good but that I put too much peanut butter in it. ‍♀️ I think it would have been good standing alone, but it was too intense when paired with 12 other pies. . Rushton came up with his pie concept a few weeks ago and was so excited to bring it to life! Golden Oreo crumb crust with lemon zest, lemon curd, lemon cake, more lemon curd, and topped with lemon-infused whipped cream. Perfectly sweet and tart! . Hailey’s Chocolate Pudding Pretzel pie was everything I dream of in a dessert. Salty crunchy pretzel crust, chocolate ganache, dark chocolate pudding, topped with a cream cheese whipped cream layer, sprinkled with chocolate shavings. It’ll put you in a happy chocolate coma. . Jake’s Chess Pie was topped with honey whipped cream and candied ginger. Surprisingly, Logan loved it! But Hailey didn’t, and as soon as she could swallow her bite all the way, she emphatically reached for her score sheet.

For someone who hates snow, I sure spent a lot of time playing in it today! The sky dumped on us and I admit that I actually had fun building a ramp with the kids.

Happy thanksgiving, from our happy family to yours! (Note Hailey’s stone-cold stare. She had just kicked Logan’s shin after he tapped her on the leg to provoke her. It worked.) We ate turkey and charcuterie boards with half of Jake’s extended family while the kids ran around making mischief. I’m so grateful for family and loved ones near and far!

Nothing like a bubble bath in Grandma and Grandpa’s giant jetted tub to make this kid excited to wash behind his ears. Follow that with sledding , a trip to Swig with Uncle Zack, tacos for dinner, and bowling with friends, and you have Logan’s perfect day!
