Around Thanksgiving I like to reflect on my family and all the blessings in my life.
I also see my girls growing up FAST! Especially when I look back on past Thanksgivings.
They don't arrive home from school anymore with construction paper vest decorated with Native American Indian designs or Pilgrim hats or their hand traced and made into a turkey.
All of those days and pictures live in my photo albums.
We had a little tradition going for a few years that my grandmother (the pie maker of the family) would trace Paige and Leah's and my nephews hands in pie dough and put it on top of the pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving.

Well they barely fit on the pie in 2003.
So in 2004 we resorted to a larger pumpkin dessert that could contain their hand prints:

That was 4 years ago. They always loved doing this. We haven't done the hand prints in a few years, mainly because we spend Christmas with family instead of Thanksgiving now. Maybe this year we'll trace their hand prints again or make a turkey hand print for old time sake.
Love and Blessings,
