Here are the yummies I baked this Thanksgiving. Don't they look scrumptious?
The first one is a pumpkin cheesecake recipe that I got out of Parenting magazine. This was my first time making any kind of cheesecake in my life- it was surprisingly easy. It has all the right spices and was really a hit! It is especially good chilled with some homemade whipped cream on top :) We candied pecans and added them on top with some toasted coconut flakes. double yum.
The second is an apple cranberry pie that my mom made last year and everyone loved. It was a bit more work to make but I think I liked it even more than the cheesecake. Its the perfect blend of tart and sweet. sooo good.
I didn't post much the other day about our time at Grandma & Grandpa Dennetts, so here goes. The car ride was long- much longer than ever. I give credit to the baby :)
He thinks its hilarious when I have a binkie, too.
Don't let his chill expression fool you. He hated being in that car seat.
We sort of had a mini-Christmas with Jonathan's family since we will be with mine for the real thing. Talmage got spoiled by his grandma :)
I don't think he knows what to do with it all.
Jonathan lives on a farm, and so I got to take Talmage out to see all the animals! He was really intrigued. Especially with the cow, hehe.
I just have to put these pictures on here too because they are cute. Here's my little chunk with his cousin Ethan having tubby time :D We got a bum shot because there is a picture of Jonathan as a baby doing the same thing! We compared, and they have the same bum! I know...too much maybe? I don't think so :)
