I made 2 sweet potato pies last night and I'm preparing a 20lb. turkey today. I've decided to skip breakfast to be sure that there is room for Turkeyday food in my belly when the time comes to eat it. :) The queen prepared 2 cherry, cream cheese pies for this feast and in about 2 hours, everything will be piled into the car and we'll all trek to the queen mother's house to feast upon the goodness. I'm looking forward to the food and enjoying the company of the queen's family. At least as much of it as I can stand, that is. At least I can eat turkey!

I'm a little light on sleep this morning because I had to get up early and prepare the big bird. I tried to go back to bed, but the little princesses don't understand the word "quiet". I also had to contend with the queen's inability to breathe and all the subsequent noise that her attempts created. The net result is that I'm a bit bleary-eyed at the moment. I'm sure the tryptophan induced coma will kick in some time in the middle of the afternoon and I'll do my best to fight it off. I need to be able to partake of the pies!!!

A real bird-basting boy! How impressive! (Hate to call you a boy, but the alliteration was too irresistable.)
