Pie fixes everything

Remember doing this as a kid?

Can you imagine me pouting when the whipped-cream covered beaters went to the two youngest relatives gathered around the table and I wasn't one of them?

Pout.

There was also some pouting involved with having to sit with the grown-ups afterwards drinking coffee and discussing important issues (arguing over politics), instead of curling up on the floor in front of a movie.

Pout.

The pie made up for it, almost.

Happy Thanksgiving, Laura! We had such great pie today too . . . with real whipped cream. YUM.

The pie is the end reward for putting up with your family all day. HA, kidding, sort of.......

I had two pieces of pecan before bed last night and it's still sitting in my stomach. It was so good though. And yes, I did have whipped cream on top of it.

Mmmmmm..... it was my grandmother's whipped potatoes, or even the cake batter on the mixer beaters. I'd have been pouting too Laura!

I was going to say, as a kid? I still do that. I guess in a lot of ways I'm still very much like a kid though.

Politics at the Thanksgiving table? Ought not to be allowed. Your post brought back memories of my first time at the "grownup" table. What a disappointment! Life is so much better at the "kid's" table.

Sounds like the kind of Thanksgivings I had as a kid - adults and politics!

I prefer the kid table, too :o)

The highlight of my Thanksgiving was watching my dad nod off in the middle of a lecture from my older brother on the perils of Keynesian economics. Just about the time he was done, Dad snapped awake and started arguing for a cultural basis of economics. It was classic.
