Thanksgiving Baking

This year we made 6 pies + four mini pies for the Thanksgiving feast tomorrow. Nate helped with the pumpkin pies and blueberry pie. Allie made the banana creme, Micayla made key lime pie, and I made pecan. We started baking around 10:00 in the morning, and continued making a mess throughout the day; cooking and cleaning nonstop, as well as blasting Pandora on the stereo. In the end, we had 10 pies in all, beautifully displayed on our 1800's organ (which also serves as a sideboard). Mmm can't wait to eat them!

Me with the pecan pie. The recipe (<----click on link for recipe) for it used maple syrup instead of corn syrup.

All the pies! Happy Pie (I mean Turkey) Day!
