Crack me up… I’m putting myself on blast with this one, but I always say I look like Don King when I get up, but this morning my son told me I look like The Weeknd. I told him that he does too.

This child loves to throw “video game parties” and entertain his friends. He is definately a people person and seems to have no problem socializing. My son said “his friends loved” the “Zombie Punch” I made for his first party, so I promised to make more creative treats.
This time I changed up the theme a bit to keep it interesting. I used some decorations I already had to set a thematic mood. That theme included me making “Deadman Punch.” The punch had pineapple sherbert, fruit punch, and Cool Whip topped with red sugar sprinkles. To add the dramatic touch kids love, I added the hands made of ice. Then there was the matching “Deadman” cake.
Party 2 was a big hit. Being personable is so valuable and I’m glad my son is able to connect so well with his peers. These are times he’ll cherish forever.
We had a good Thanksgiving dinner. I had the guys make farolitos and we made a fire, so it was cozy. I love candles and had 50+ strewn about the living room. They highlighted my mythology table, dragonology table and wizard corner. I made some cute center pieces that were easy to make. We all contributed food, but I made an orange and honey glazed ham, bacon corn, honey glazed carrots, sweet potatoes with candied pecans, Jim Beam honey bourbon apple cider with cinnamon sticks, a smoked oyster and cheese platter, and toasted pistachio pudding. I think the pudding was a big hit. I had Mike torch it so the marshmellows, sliced almonds and turbinado sugar got toasted up. That was good!

I love to catch up with my cousin Jessica. I saw her this evening and she is such a beautiful little spirit. I found out that she is going to Alaska next week on a special mission and so I wanted to wish her luck! This lady is always making a difference in the lives of women and children. I’m so proud of the woman she has become.
We were next door neighbors as children and loved spending all our time together, outside under the apple trees. Now… we are all grown up and only catch up from time to time. I was remembering a picture she sent me a while back and thought I’d share a then and now look at us.
