Dear Crissy

I’m thankful for the little things

The alternate title for this post is: “A Little Pie, for Little E.” My dad carefully crafted this adorable little personal-size pumpkin pie for Evan, complete with cutouts of the letter E, and a reindeer. I added the finishing touch, a single spray of whipped cream. Thumbs up, Papaw!

This was a busy day, as I’m sure it was for many of you. We attended two family dinners, both delicious, and because Evan missed both of his regularly-scheduled naps, he was absolutely pooped by the time it was all said and done.

In spite of the unrelenting rain, this was a beautiful Thanksgiving, and I’m so happy to have shared it with all of the people in my life who mean the most. I hope all of you had a happy Turkey Day!

  3. Hi Crissy,

    Love the personalized treat – how nice of your dad. I live hundreds of miles from my folks and they don’t get to see their grand-kids that often so it’s heartwarming to see such a personal touch. You are all so very lucky! Cheers and Happy Thanksgiving.
