i included a couple of pictures of zoë throwing a hissy fit, since you guys never see that side of her. she doesn't really throw tantrums, but she is certainly vocal in her complaints.

i also threw in a pic of my first venture into the land of from scratch cupcakes. i have crossed the river, and the milk and honey is good. ;) seriously though, cupcakes are as much fun as all the baking blogs on the internet would have you believe. now i need to work on my frosting skills. but man. those cupcakes were really good. here's the recipe, if you should decide you need to make them too. yummmmm....

so we had thanksgiving, here at casa de mills... it was quite a bit of fun. and i got all the sides made and everything (minus the roasted butternut squash) was on the table within 10 minutes of our original dinner time. and that was the greatest accomplishment of all for me. i actually got the food done mostly on schedule. woo!

we got furniture just in time for everyone's arrival, so you'll note the living room doesn't look quite as bare. today, i'm going post thanksgiving thrift shopping with michelle, and i'm also dropping off more hand made goods at a local craft co-op type place. yay for making money off of knitting.

so, there you go. enjoy the short video i made... it's what you see as you get out of your car in the driveway and walk into the house. well, only if we have a fire going. and lori's here. and we're watching a muppet christmas carol.

hope you had a wonderful holiday, and that you ate good food, hung out with people you loved, and took lots of leftovers home with you.
