Thanksgiving Day

Good Morning? Wow I am still stuffed from yesterday.
I made my coffee this morning and as I opened the refrigerator I saw all these wonderful pies and new my mind wanted to have a piece - but my stomach said not yet.
David was up this morning at 4:45am to get dressed and head out to hay the goats and I got up at 5am and started the coffee and made turkey sandwiches for him and my son-in-law to head to Pikes Place.
Yesterday before dinner at 1pm, David cut up two rounds of cheese and went over to Adna to vacuum pack them for Friday market. I labeled all of them after dinner. My daughter and I packaged and labeled 60 chevre for Friday Market. Our evening ended at 10pm with everyone in bed.
Yesterday was a very nice day. Heather and Jamie and CJ (daughter, husband and grandson) are staying until Sat. before they head for home. My mom called from Arizona to tell me that a lady would be calling me about buying a goat. She also wished me a Happy Thanksgiving and check on my pie count. When the guys left, my son, brother and nephew we sent pie and cheese packages. They were very happy as they drove down the driveway.
Pies are my thing so let me name what I made this year: Blueberry Cheesecake, Marble cheesecake with cherries on top, Peanut butter and chocolate cheesecake, pumpkin cheesecake, apple, pecan, raisin, pumpkin, Cherri Cha Cha, Chocolate Cream, Vanilla Cream, Banana Cream, Cherry.
My brothers comment was this was the smallest Thanksgiving dinner he has been to, for me.
So all in all everything went as planned.
Now today will be relaxing and or sort of relaxing -- I have about 70 gallons of milk I need to do something with. So for sure cheese making will happen. And some yogurt and butter milk making. And some turkey sandwiches and some pie to top off the day. Oh yes I have to go get some hay as David used all the rest this morning. So thought I'd take the crew for a ride today.
I'll put a picture of the pies tomorrow as David hasn't downloaded them onto the computer yet.
I hope your holiday was wonderful and that you ate some cheese, preferably goat!
