Crazy Thanksgiving

What a crazy Thanksgiving week I've had. My week started off pretty good on Monday. Started baking on Tuesday and got Banana, Banana Bread made, Homemade Chocolate Cake with homemade icing, and sugar cookie lollipop cookies all done. Bubba and Pumpkin helped with the cookies since they were for Bubba's Kindergarten class for his Birthday. Got up Wednesday and headed off to my Mother-In-Laws for a morning of making Apple Pies with my Mother-In-Law and Pumpkin. On the way home Pumpkin and I stopped at the store to pick up a couple things. While in the store Pumpkin slept in the cart the whole time that was the easiest trip I had ever made to the store. When Bubba got home from school we started baking again at this point everything started to go wrong for me. I was using my hand chopper to chop up pretzels for a Jello Dessert I was making. At this point my hand chopper decides to break on the second time I ever use it. :-( So I get my electric chopper out while doing so cute my finger open on the blade. Thinking things couldn't get any worse while using the electric chopper I put to much pressure on my cracked glass stove top and busted it all the way through. Luckily I did not get hurt from the broken glass. Well I should have known to stop at that point, but didn't I kept on preparing the Jello Dessert which ended up being a huge disaster that ended up in the trash. So I moved on with my baking by making an Almond Pound Cake which turned out good. :-) Thanksgiving morning I get up and make a Coffee Cake to take to breakfast with my In-Laws well the batter baked up and over all of the topping on my Coffee Cake and the center of the cake collapsed even though I baked it for a little longer then it called for. At least it tasted good, tasted like a cinnamon roll lol. While at my In-Laws my brother in-law discovered that his parents were not having a Thanksgiving dinner and was bummed that he was gonna miss out on Turkey and all the fixings. So we invited him to go with us to my parents house. When my mom cooks it could feed an army. She is the youngest girl of 12 children so she is used to making and having a lot of food. We had a great time at my parents with family. My Uncle D was up from Florida and Bubba loves when Uncle D is in town because he is named after him. My brother spent most of the evening playing with Bubba and Pumpkin and bugging me; but that's what little brothers do best I guess bug their sisters. But overall I'd have to say though it was crazy in the beginning that it was the best Thanksgiving I've had in years. Now for more fun this weekend with a Thanksgiving and Cookie Baking Party with friends from church and Bubba's 6th birthday party. Looking forward to spending more time with my great family and friends this weekend. Feel free to post your crazy Thanksgiving stories as well. :-)
