For Thanksgiving this year, my parents and Darrin's family came up to Spokane to visit. Darrin has a step-sister only 40 minutes away so it was a chance for his family to see her and her family at the same time. It was great to have family there! 

For the Thanksgiving feast, I made 3 pies, a couple salads, and the rolls.
My first pie was out of a magazine. It was called Caramel Cream Pumpkin Pie. It turned out really pretty but man was it sweet! That's even coming from the girl who can eat more candy than most.

To brown the meringue top, we used Darrin's kitchen torch.

And a cherry pie (one of my favorites)

The rolls. It was funny how a lot of little boys really liked these rolls. Some of them took a few home with them. :)

And a blackberry pie from the blackberries we picked in Oregon. (definitely not the best looking pie...)

And my mom. I did a better job of documenting the food than the people. Oops. At least there's one picture...Thanks for all your help in the kitchen mom!
