pies and games

This year for Thanksgiving we get to stay in Utah and head up to beautiful Bountiful to spend with family and stay at Grandma and Grandpa Turnbull's! It really so sad how close we live but still feel like we hardly get to go see them, i guess school and work have us pretty tied down, but it will be nice to get a break from school and get to spend some quality time up there!! So since i LOVE Baking, i am so excited to be able to bake a few pies for thanksgiving and think of some fun games to play while we are up there... i need suggestions! on fun family games to play and your favorite pie recipes (pumpkin, apple, and cherry is what im making) please and thank you!!!!! as much as i love baking i have yet to make a homemade pie.. so i need to try a few out before the big day!

We play bingo! My aunt always hosts and she buys a bunch of cheap prizes (usually funny, or things that were given to her) and puts them all in brown bags so you don't know what you're picking.

Also, she will fine a few random trivia questions holiday related and asks them throughout the night. The winner also picks a prize.

Have fun!

i love apple pie with graham cracker crust and then lots of brown sugar crumbles on top... not very traditional, but DELICIOUS!

So fun! I will miss you and the rest of the fam, but you will have a blast. Introduce them to fruit basket tipped over. As for pie ideas...ask cousin Ellen for her sweet potato pie recipe ;-)
