I usually also bring pie, but my brother and brother-in-law wanted to. I should have any way. Was a little disappointed. The pie had kind of an odd flavor. Mine is definately better, and another drawback is that we don't have leftovers. I love pumpkin pie. Not really a cake person and on my birthday I used to have my mom either make me pumpkin pie or strawberry shortcake. I have a major sweet tooth right now and would really like a piece of pie. Maybe I can make some on Sun. I had to work today and have to work tomorrow.
Anyway, after we ate we went to see my granny at the nursing home. Really sad. My grandma was always so independent, she volunteered at her church, drove herself from Seattle to Aberdeen all the time, lots of crafts, sewing and baking. Her favorite thing to do was give out cookies and sweets to everyone. She especially likes ice cream and going out to eat. She turned 94 in July and has dementia due to Parkinson's, so she doesn't really remember who we are anymore and it just is heart-wrenching to see her that way.
Came home and had dessert, then went out to the Botanical Gardens by the Old Idaho Penitentiary to see all the holiday lights. It was a little chilly, but nice. My son's girlfriend froze. She was wearing a dress and forgot her other shoes and had high heel dress sandals on. Brrr. We all had our pic taken. I will post it as soon as my brother e-mails me a copy, knowing him it could be a while.
