Getting Ready...........

Yesterday was pie and tortilla roll up day. We did a LOT of both! MJ was in charge of the tortilla roll-ups. He has started doing them almost totally on his own. He does them every year with help, but this year I refused to help. My standard answer was, "What ever you think is right."

Girls did most of the pie making.
Apple, Cherry, Pumpkin, Coconut, Chess, Pecan, and last but not least pecan less pecan. That last one always reminds me of my mom. She started making that pie, which is a pecan pie without pecans for my DH maybe the second year we were married.
This morning Grandmothers dip is warming and fruit salad is being made. Turkey is being cut up and ham is on to cook. Dh will start frying turkey about 9. I will get dressing and gravy on in a little bit. Then we will be done!
I told people we would start eating at daylight, but I was wrong. I checked the turkey at 1am and started then. Kid have been eating since before daylight as they chop fruit and such.

Well, we cartainly missed your feast, but we managed to fill our bellies. We invited two other childless couples to share with us.
I showed them your rack of pies!
Hopefully next year we can participate once again. Tic
