Mazy's ice cream birthday cake on Thanksgiving night at my in-laws' house.
This was no easy cake to cut through, good thing I'm strong! Check out that piece in the lower right corner -- it was huge! I gave it to Shawn. :)
Present time! Legos, Nerf gun and Halo guys!
I loved this Lego set -- Alien Abduction, and it comes with a farmer that gets abducted by the aliens! The farmer is hilarious, he has muttonchop sideburns and is wearing bib overalls! I think he's an English sheep farmer. :)
Chopped Granny Smith apples (4)
Freshly shelled pecans (1 cup, chopped)
Cake flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt
Pour into greased/floured bundt pan
Bake for one hour
Let cool and top with caramel sauce! Delicious!
Baked brussel sprouts and baby carrots -- garnished with one pound pancetta, raw green onions and lemon juice. Great flavors and so easy!
Nephew Hudson looking handsome as always!
And look at this little chubster, such a cutie! Nephew Maddox in his dress shirt with Uncle Shawn.
And this little doll is niece Imersyn.
And these two teenaged troublemakers are my cousins Jenny and Luke!
There you go -- two Thanksgivings in three days. Can't ask for a better schedule than that! The boys and I got the tree decorated tonight. They were so sweet -- they oohed and aahhed over every ornament and had such fun hanging them up. More on that tomorrow. And Shawn bought "Elf on a Shelf" tonight. We told the boys he is a spy for Santa and will report back everything they do to Santa -- both good and bad. Of course, we really played up the "bad" part. :) I need to look up the back-story to this toy... I think he is supposed to move locations every night or something.
