So it would stand to reason that my daughter loves all things pumpkin: pumpkin bread, pumpkin roll, etc. You name it, she likes it. Pumpkin pie is her favorite. So for the last few turkey days, even though I won't eat a bite, I have been found in the kitchen baking a pumpkin pie.
I took the pie out of the oven last night around 8:30 and set it on top of the range to cool for two hours (per directions.) Fred and I were around the house, but not exactly in the kitchen. And that's when she struck.
I know, she looks all innocent & sleepy. That's because she's sleeping off the pumpkin pie! (To be honest, she didn't exactly eat the pie---rather, just licked the top. Still very gross, whichever way you look at it.)
And here is the pumpkin pie:
And we were singin'
Bye, bye Jewel's pumpkin pie!
You were pretty, then Cree licked you
making Jewel cry.
But Momma cut a tiny piece on the sly,
So little girl can have a taste of her pie.
(I know---cheesy! I couldn't help it.)
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! May your day be spent with those you love, reflecting on the good things we've been given.
