Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours. I hope you spent today with family or friends, laughing and reminsicing about fun adventures and memories.
The best gift was that my husband made it home from his business trip to Saudi Arabia with one hour to spare before dinner. We’re reading ‘Parenting’ Magazine. Note our ‘Team Baby Girl or Boy’ shirts. =)
My sister-in-law and I baked up a storm – portabella mushroom lasagna (recipe here), mashed potatoes, two kinds of vegetarian faux-loaf, homemade rolls, and an amazing decadent butterscotch butterscotch dessert (recipe here).
We didn’t go hungry, that’s for sure!
We made cupcakes out of our stuffing. They were perfectly sized for perfectly filling carb loading.
But of course, the real show stopper was the ‘Guess the Baby Sex’ cupcakes. You’ll be in suspense for just one more day and then we’re telling the world what’s kicking up a storm in my belly.
Of course, no family gathering would be complete without the original grandchildren, Samantha and Toby.
Look how big Toby has gotten! Our little puppy has grown into a big 8 month old. Remember how little Toby was when Erik first got him?
Thank you! He’s a fun little guy already. He loves to do cartwheels in my
tummy AND lets me sleep all night (so far no major night kicking. I get a
lot during the evening though!)

Wow Congratulations. You are so in for the best surprise of your life…Your new baby will be so fun and sweet. I hope the new year brings lots of beautiful surprises for you!
The Butterscotch Butterscotch is INSANITY for awesomeness with taste but the frosting is a tad complicated so definitely give yourself an extra 30 minutes to make it over what you’d think. =) It is totally worth it, completely 100% worth it.
Toby is adorable! He’s only an 8 month old puppy so he is just so joyful and hilarious all the time. We have laughed so hard about the dog’s antics for the last day =)

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Anne-Marie! What a feast – it looks great! Wow, Toby is getting big – Toby and Samantha are such cute doggies. Can’t wait to hear the big news about the Bramble Bump! 🙂
I love the stuffing cupcakes idea! Will have to try the Butterscotch Butterscotch recipe…maybe to share; I surely don’t need the extra calories. 😉
The granddoggies are so cute!
