Thanksgiving 2011

It was probably the most boring Thanksgiving in our lives,but given the fact that we were sick, it was fine. We spent it at home and the food was delicious (I don't mean to brag, but it was really yummy). The menu was chosen based on our favorite things. We love turkey, gravy, sweet potatoes, Caesar salad, Tortellini Alfredo, stuffing (this was actually my choice) and bread. Raphael chose the drink, which was orange soda. The desserts were Pudim de Leite (Flan) and Ice Cream Pie.
We ended up eating the Tortellini Alfredo for lunch, but saved the rest for dinner. Here is what we made.

Halloween Day

It was a fun day!
I made spider web pancakes for breakfast. Then after school the neighbors got together for a party. It was fun to chat with everybody and to see so many new faces.
Then around 6:30pm Marco went home to hand out candy and I took the kids trick-or-treating.
Trick-or-treating was fun and almost the usual, until Raphael sang to an elderly lady that opened the door to hand out candy. He sang "trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat. If you don't, I don't care, I'll just pull your hair." Can you believe that the stinker sang that? I was SO EMBARRASSED!!! The lady was nice and didn't say anything, but I wanted to hide so bad. Raphael is usually so polite... he told me he was just trying to be funny... so I wasn't mad for long. But he'd better not bring this song again next year. :-)
