{pretty, happy, funny, real} and a Winner!




This is one of those "Can you spot the differences?" picture games...

The first snow of the year and my kids chose to celebrate by running out to the porch to...make snow angels?  Build a snowman?  Catch snowflakes on their tongues?  Nope.  By grabbing bowls and running back inside to make "snow candy" a la Little House on the Prairie.

I'm not sure why but turkey pot pie has become a little Solemnity of Christ the King tradition around here.  I suppose because it normally falls right after Thanksgiving and because it sort of resembles a crown.  And we really like it.  So there's that.


We have a winner!  (What?  It's real.  (Streeeeetch.))

Thank you to all who entered!  I always feel bad for all the people who don't win but I'm pretty sure the husband wouldn't be down with me buying copies for all of you :)  I'm certain you will have a wonderfully blessed Advent regardless!

Have a wonderful Thursday!


  1. Your winner picker is devastatingly handsome. You are in big trouble in a few years!!

  2. pie...yum...This year, I made two turkey pies covered in mashed potatoes and froze them (I felt so brilliant)- I think this is the way I will deal with big dinner leftovers in the future. Everybody loves a pie

  3. You NEED to post that chicken pot pie recipe! I've been wanting chicken pot pie and that looks amazing... Next post? Pretty please?!

  4. That pot pie looks amazing! What a cool and clever tradition!
    I love your idea with the gourds as placeholders. Lovely!
