because you can never have too many desserts

This Thanksgiving I have much to be thankful for.
The beautiful weather, the beauty of nature, my family and friends, delicious food and plenty of it, my little cats, the fuzzy spiders that hop around when it gets warm enough, Hop the lizard, Nem the camera, Hawthorne the graphics tablet, the Lord's patience and goodness and blessings.
My heart is practically overflowing today!

But enough of the sappiness - where are the photos?!

I put myself in charge of the desserts today (all six of them, only three shown below).
Apple pie, tres leches, and fruit salad (aka marshmallow salad):


I think I ate six pieces of tres leches today.

Our deep-fried turkey, frying deeply:

And, the finished result! (It was totally delicious.)

We had some family over to share the feast, here cousin Jay holds a sleeping Caleb:

Caleb (sometimes referred to as Keebler) woke up later and started making absolutely hilarious mean faces. He knew he was being cute, too, and would actually do it on demand.

He would scrunch up his face, then stop and laugh, make sure someone's watching him, then do it again.

O noes, it's me!

Mi madre, who did everything else...


...including - but not limited to - tamales (!!), homemade cranberry sauce, beet salad, brussel sprouts with something else mixed in (I didn't taste it, sh don't tell), mashed potatoes, green beans, and probably other stuff too but it's really late and I spent all my brainpower playing Catch Phrase with the family. I'm excused, right?

I think twelve photos made their way on here! I didn't actually count them, mind you, so if there's only eleven and a half, sorry.

Happy Thanksgiving!

who i am!

Tiph used to be this weird hippie chick who sewed things and drank tea and rode bikes and wrote silly things. Then, college came along, and now she's this weird hippie chick with math in her brain and notebooks full of indefinite integrals. And hardly any time to write. This is her space. Thankfully, space is a vacuum and any complaints you may have cannot be heard.
