We've got a busy busy day ahead of us as we're celebrating (belated) Thanksgiving tonight with a delicious dinner and I've got lotssssssss of cooking to do!
Pumpkin Pies were baked last night (using our Healthy Pumpkin Pie Recipe - and mini gluten free pies using my Healthy Pastry Recipe!) and this morning I made some Healthier Snowball Cookies and Healthier Ginger Cookies and once I finish posting this I'm off to prep the veggie side dishes, green bean casserole, baked mac and cheese and everything else! Phew.
It's a whole lot of work, but totally worth it for the delicious food and my happy husband at the end of it!
Yesterday we put up our Christmas Tree and got out all of our decorations (so that we could put the rest up today) as well as put some extra lights on the outside of our house so it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here.
Today we chose a new sponsor child through Compassion - a 13 year old teenager from Bangladesh, Tumpa, who we cannot wait to learn more about.
We're passionate about supporting older children as they are often overlooked - and often even more of need of assistance from organisations like Compassion as they're in such an important time in their lives.
But tell me, how has your weekend been?
