Everyone likes pumpkin pie, but this one was made with Kaleb in mind. He didn't get come home from college back East for Thanksgiving, so made a special request for pumpkin pie for Christmas.
You can see he and Elijah are both enjoying a piece. Actually Kaleb had two pieces on his plate and I couldn't see it for the real whipped cream.
The four layer torte turned out nice, and the mousse filling and topper was really delicious. I was going to frost the whole cake with whipped cream...but that was just too much sugar.
It was a beautiful day, but as evening came the fire pit was lit, and several of the older grandchildren enjoyed eating by the fire. Roasting marshmellows came later. It was a great day. We had a blast with our Secret Santa exchange gifts, and when our family gets together, before long we are laughing so hard our sides hurt. Get our son Myk, and our oldest daughter Michel together it like stand up comedians. Love our family. The only thing missing that would have made it perfect, was not having Jill, Jaya and Tristan with us.
I trust you had a good day too.
