Christmas Blessings

The best part of Christmas is spending time with loved ones.
Today, Christmas Eve, my daughter came over and we created a pumpkin pie and a Dutch apple pie.

And the pumpkin....
She got the idea to cut shapes out of the extra pie crust...and at first we started to put them on right away, but, they started to sink, so we added them after the pie had baked part way....
We are going to invest in those crust protectors that you can get...we both burned ourselves trying to put on tin foil guards....HOT!
Then we had leftover pie crust....saints preserve us! So, she added cutouts to the apple pie and we made a turnover with pumkin butter, cranberries, raisins and cinnamon....

So, as everyone's house fills with the smells of Christmas cooking near and far, I want to wish all of you a very, Merry Christmas!! May you be filled with Christmas blessings of family and friends and good times.
