~ Gobble , Gobble ~

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I celebrated twice , went to my Mom's on Thanksgiving Day. Yesterday I cooked for my hubby's family , actually everyone brought side dishes. I cooked the turkey , gravy , stuffing and collards. I also made 12 sweet potato pies and some Gobble , Gobble cupcakes for the kids.

My late MIL , always made 12 sweet potato pies for Thanksgiving. We would have some to eat with our meal and she sent everyone home with a pie. I try to keep her tradition going , she was a wonderful woman , I sure do miss her.

I found the recipe for the cupcakes on the Family Fun website , I tweaked mine a little bit. The kids loved them , Curious J sure got a kick out of them. He said one of the turkey cupcakes looked " Mean " and he wanted it , he choose 2 and sit at the table playing with them like they were toys , it was a cute scene. Little Man liked the turkey heads , he kept grabbing the heads every chance he got.

I'm tired from the cooking and cleaning , today I plan to rest and enjoy some quiet time.

~ May You be Blessed ~
