Last Christmas, I received the Willow Tree Nativity Set and Three Wisemen from my mother- and sister-in-law, respectively. So, of course, I just got to set it up for the first time this year, and I love it!
Last night, we went up to Salem to have Thanksgiving dinner hosted by our friends, Patrick and Mary-Frances. The Mercers and Morses were there as well, and we had plenty of yummy food. And I got to watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving for the first time and thought it was cute, but also sort of odd. That Peppermint Patty sure has a low voice. . . .
Some of the food. Those sweet potatoes in the center are mine! It was the first time I ever made them, and they were easy and yummy. Because Salem is about 45 minutes away, by the time I arrived, half of the marshmallows had dissolved into the sweet potatoes. So I tore up some of Mary-Frances’s large marshmallows and re-browned it. So that’s why they look a little weird.
I also made a crustless pumpkin pie but didn’t take a picture of it. But just imagine a pumpkin pie . . . with no crust 🙂
