In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Thanksgiving Day

We went to my sister and brother in-laws house for Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving started off with my niece walking in the door with this delicious drink/shot/dessert! 
She found the recipe on pinterest, and here it is. 
White Russian Pudding Shots

1 small package of Instant Chocolate Pudding
3/4 cup of Milk
1/4 cup of Vodka
1/2 cup of Irish Cream (Baileys is best)
8 oz of Extra Creamy Cool Whip

Mix pudding and milk for a couple of minutes with an electric mixer;  add alcohol, mix well.  Add Cool Whip.  Put the pudding mix into Individual serving cups with lids.  Keep in the freezer until ready to Serve!
We added a shot of whipped cream on them and they were delish!

My Sister had very cute table settings... 
 with trivia questions for everyone.  Great conversation starters by the way,
if anyone needs ideas for Christmas parties/dinners.
Everyone bowed their head for prayer before dinner.
 Time to eat!
 See that folding table at the end of the the pic below.
 Well in this picture my sister is setting her cute little pumpkin pie-ettes out.
 see...pie-ettes.....because they are cute and little.  She put them on this gorgeous cake stand.
 And here my sister is giving our brother heck (you can tell by her hands in these next two pictures!) because he bumped the table leg and every little pie-ette went flying off of that cake plate and I am not kidding you one little bit!
 And there is my brother leaving the room after his scolding.
 And this would be me and my sister holding up our etched wine glasses.  My sister, Theresa with a T, etched them.   My name is Cindy with a C.  Something is seriously wrong with the size of these glasses!

This pumpkin roll is
from J. Edwards in Kokomo.

And this persimmon pudding from Cindy with a little wine glass.

 Very delicious dessert table.  That pecan pie was divine.  And I tell you what...I don't think one person walked by that table without kicking the legs!  Including me!  They stuck out, it couldn't be helped!
 And this is Adrienne cleaning out the trash can because her kid made a mess in it!  Right when Theresa pulled out the trash can liner to change it, Dylan dumped her plate of leftover food in the trash can!
 You can kind of see what's going on here....I think I had a good seat to witness all the kitchen trouble action going on!

 And here are several of us playing turkey games.
 I am not turning this picture right side up because it's late, I'm tired, I have to get up early, and I said I was posting every day.  I have one hour before this day is over!
  Those are turkey parts that match the dice.   You would all be rolling your own die (one dice-die? I dunno) at the same time and the first one to get all six parts to make a turkey wins.  I know...clear as mud.   Okay....Say I roll a six.  I put the feet part on the blank area of the page, because six =feet.   Then I roll a one, so I get the body.  I put that on the blank part of the page.  But if I roll a six again, or a one again, I can't do anything.   I just keep rolling until I get something I haven't got.  First person to make a whole turkey wins.
 This is a picture of Gloria and Ralph.  She wanted me to get a good picture of them.  I think this one is pretty good.  People always ask me why I take so many pictures.  Well I took six to get one without closed eyes or no smiles....
 and then someone got the brilliant idea of getting a picture for Mom and Dad of their grandkids.  This never goes well.  
Adrienne was inside forever while this group went out right when they said let's go take a pic.  It was cold out and they were complaining and Adrienne was taking her time.
 Then Andrew went out and said he wanted to be in front this time.  I am still laughing about that!
 And while I'm telling Andrew he cannot be in front, Ty decided he didn't want his picture taken.
 So off he goes.  I yell at my brother to grab him!
 Which he does.
And where is Adrienne!  Come on, we are cold!
And I took 14 pictures to get one good one.  Not counting the ones above.
 I had no idea that Dylan was making a goofy face in every...single...picture...

 except one.  And I am not kidding about this for one minute either.  Every...single...picture...and then  Sarah has her tongue out when Dylan decided to smile.   Really?  AUGH!
And tah dah!  13 pictures later.
We all sang Happy Birthday to Lorri, then started cleaning up the mess!
And I don't even know if Mom & Dad even saw these pictures.

We had a wonderful Happy Thanksgiving with family and friends. 

PS.  Vickie, Robert and Ryan stopped by too, but I didn't get pictures of them.


  1. Glad you had a great time! The games look like fun. You need one of those large wine glasses too!

  2. What a fun time you all had! And thank you for making me smile :)
