Happy Thanksgiving Eve

What a fantastic (and busy) day!  Aaron and I started out by visiting my BFF, Amy.  It was so good to see her and catch up a little.  Aaron had fun playing with Jude and now I'm stocked with maternity clothes for the winter!!  Then from 11:30 - 5:00 I baked...

  and baked...
 and baked some more...
  and had to save some in the fridge to bake later...

 In total I made approximately 4 dozen cinnamon rolls: 2 pans regular, 1 pan pecan, 1 pan gluten free.  Plus approximately 3 1/2 dozen crescent dinner rolls: 3 dozen regular and a half dozen gluten free.

At 5:00 we loaded up and headed to Grandma and Granddad's and got to see Aunt Jenny and Uncle Matt too!  We had lasagna for dinner and pumpkin pie for dessert.  Then we just sat around and talked which was wonderful.  Aaron decided to play "phone" with Uncle Matt's cell phone and before we knew it, he had dialed the police who called back a few times before Matt realized it was the cops.  They ended up sending an officer out even after Matt explained it was his 17 month old nephew who placed the call by accident!!!  It was rather humorous but I feel bad the cop had to come out and check on us anyway!  It was the first of what I fear will be more accidental phone calls in the future!

We are home now and little man is exausted!  He'll sleep well tonight -we aren't even going to try to skip morning nap tomorrow as we need him to be awake for the big turkey dinner!  So excited to eat yummy food and hang out with family.


(I am now baking yet again... for John's co-workers tomorrow night...  and have to finish the rolls that were in the fridge! )

  1. Oh man! He is out like a light! Those rolls look sooooo good, but not Lamberts? Totally good with the crescents, don't get me wrong:-) Lasagne sounds very yummy and glad you had a good time......I'm keeping my phone out of reach tomorrow. I get a little anxious when the cops show up over here lol!
