It brought tears to my eyes.
It has gone by so fast.
I know I have my moments
I really do enjoy my kids.
I enjoy the time we spend together as a family.
I'm really going to miss it when they are gone.
So, this year we decided to stay home for Thanksgiving and just enjoy our family.
The kids all requested their favorites...
Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potatoes, corn, orange salad and overnight rolls.
For dessert...peanut butter cheesecake, chocolate chiffon pie, chocolate peanut butter pie, pecan pie, pumpkin pie, white chocolate raspberry pie, and apple pie.
I made it all.
I then slept for 10 hours.
For the first time, Corey had requested Overnight Rolls. His mom used to make them and and I have the recipe.
I asked Corey if I should double the recipe, since most of the recipes that we use need to be at least doubled to feed us all.
He thought that it was a good idea...because they are that good.
I should have thought that one through first. Corey is one of 10 kids and any recipe coming from his side of the family probably doesn't need to be doubled.
But, I didn't think it through...and I quadrupled it.
230+ rolls later...
I'm pretty sure that eating all these rolls will give you rolls.
Like the kind that hang over the waistband.
Not funny...but super yummy!
My 2 year old decided to taste test them...
In case you don't have the teenage conversion chart in your kitchen, I'll help you out.
One = Four
Please ignore the unfinished dining room...we have yet to tackle that room in the house.
