I Freakin’ Did it Friday #15

Wow what a week, it’s wind down to Thanksgiving here. Today we had Matthew’s thanksgiving lunch at preschool and tomorrow is Grandparents day at Garrett’s school. Both boys will be off all week next week. I have seriously been trying to bake some pie for 2 days now! Not gonna get done now till Friday night or Sunday. Saturday we have Garrett’s Birthday and we are going on a tour of the REAL FBI! So excited.

So last weeks most viewed link was from one of the sweetest bloggers I know, Christine at the DIY Dreamer who shared with us her Indoor Product Photography Tips!

I LOVE CHRISTMAS, every year we are visited by our elves Dude and Tommy. I look forward to this way of torturing having fun with my children in the name of Christmas every year. They act better that month than any other. I just had to share Happiest Mom on the Blog’s Over 70 Elf on the Shelf Ideas.

This week I asked on Facebook what your favorite pie was for Thanksgiving, one that came up often was Buttermilk Pie and here is a great recipe from Cupcake-n-Bake.

If you are looking for something cute to give the kids for dessert these Reeses Peanut Butter Turkeys  from Kitchen Fun With My 3 Sons are tooooooo cute!

Annie One Can Cook shared her heartfelt story of soldiers and how you can help bring a little holiday cheer to those who serve to selflessly to keep us all safe. Operation Christmas is such an easy thing to do and would be a great family project for your kids!

I remember the first time I experience Mrs. Prindles Apples when I was in College. They were sold at Needless Markup. They were wonderful and Call Me PMc showed how to make these Outrageous Candy Apples and the best way to melt chocolate.
Storybook Reality  shared a soup I can’t wait to try with 2 of my favorite ingredients Chicken Avocado Soup. It has been in the mid 40′s this week in Atlanta so I am craving some soup recipes!

I'm a mom of 3 boys, 2 by birth one by marriage. I love to cook, watch chick flicks, read and drink wine. I hate cleaning up my craft messes, doing laundry and the dishes! I love watching my boys grow and change and see how differently they view the world. Join me on the blog where I try to provide you with recipes and tips to make your life easier!

    Kelley,Thank you so much for featuring "Operation: Christmas"–I'm so honored! And thank you for your note about the word verification–I didn't even know I had that (and I'm always irritated when I have to do it on other pages).

    Thanks for hosting!I'm sharing a recipe for Low Carb Pumpkin Cheesecake. It's sugar free, gluten free and sweetened with pure Stevia as opposed to aspartame or sucralose or any other poisons. Top it off with a generous dollup of homemade whipped cream sweetened with Stevia and indulge in a great holiday dessert without guilt.Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving to all!!
