Yesterday was a day for the books. It was mundane, yet magical. It was a perfect Thanksgiving Eve. For Brian and I, this is our first holiday season to be married, and it is awesome!

After sleeping in 'til 8:30, we got up and took our 3 dogs for a 3 mile walk through our neighborhood. It was cloudy and cool and leaves were blanketed over the roads. It was a beautiful, fall walk.

Then, we got in the kitchen to make some yummy desserts for Thanksgiving Day. I'm not sure if Brian was planning to help or not, but he jumped and ran when I asked for his expertise (just like he always does :). We decided to make a totally homemade blackberry pie and pumpkin cheesecake.

This is Brian meticulously rolling out the crust. I made the crust, but he was the real mastermind behind the work of art.
This lattice-work crust was more challenging than we thought. It took both of our brains to get it right.
The finished product!

After spending the morning baking, we headed out to the movie with our nephew, Maddox. We took him to see Bolt 3-D. It was a cute movie, and he lasted through the whole thing!

When the movie was over, we were starving, so we met up with the others for dinner at On the Border. Yummy!
My beautiful sisters and best friends!

On our way home, Brian and I stopped by Toys R Us to do some Christmas shopping and to get a football for Thanksgiving Day. We also picked up Monopoly Electronic Banking. We played it when we got home and we ended with a tie. Of course, I had $30 Million and Brian had $0, but I agreed to call it a tie in the interest of holiday cheer. It was a perfect ending to a perfect day!

That pie looked fantastic! I'm so impressed, and jealous. My pies taste good but end up looking like fruit globs. :)

Pie looks great. No two of my lattice strips are the same size and I have been making pies for 40 years.
