pleased as pie and a Mario Cart prodigy


Busy, busy, busy. I haven't had much time to blog, respond to blogs or anything else amid the Christmas frenzy.

Last Saturday we hosted a little Chirstmas party. I was rather pleased with my creative pie baking. I had this last minute idea to use a cookie cutter and arrange little tree's upon my homemade blueberry pie. I was so happy w/ how it turned out. And it was Yummmmy! (if I may say so myself)


The miniature person in the red skirt is my five year old. She smoked the adults in Mario Cart. I think she may be a Mario Cart prodigy.

Just a little update. Maybe I'll be able to get back to my usual blogging after the Holidays. Until then, this is as good as I can do.

I remember Mario - excellent! And, GOD I understand. I am so stressed. From blogging to commenting, I feel like I am drowning! I think it's a common thing, though, this time of year.

: )

Be well, Christy!

Your pie looks delish! And now I feel like playing a little Mario Kart!

I looooooooooooove blueberry pie, yours looks scrumptious!
Mario Kart is big in our house, too. It is nice because it is something all three of the kids (ages 4-9)plus my husband can do together. My husband and oldest son are OBSESSED and so competitive with each other. I hear my hubby playing at 1am sometimes (and my son still (just barely)beats him :0)

Hey Susan! I think that's why I like the 4th of July best. No hassle, no bank accounts run dry, no running myself into the ground. Just getting together with friends and we all pitch in. It's simple and fun. As a Christian, I like the meaning of Christmas best, however, the husstle and bustle wears me out and takes away from the joy of the season.

P.J. Have fun!!! :0)

Kelly, that's so funny. Whenever I leave the kids with my hubby, I can be sure to come home to find that I can only see the back of their heads (much like the picture.) I didn't realize our kids were so close in age.

Pretty pie! I'm trying to learn how to make a crust from scratch. Yours is an inspiration.

Just looking at that pie made me salivate.

Brenda said...

Great lookin' pie...and how creative of you to use the tree cookie cutters...grin...

I think Mario cart was made for youngsters...they can see things that we adults can't see...my son use to kick my butt at that game...but when he got to be about 17, he started losing to his cousin...who was 10 years old...so I'm convinced...you gotta be very, very young at heart to play/win Mario...grin...

Happy Holidays!

Oh, that is the cutest pie I have seen maybe ever. Can I steal that idea for my once-a-year pie next Thanksgiving?

C.R. Evers said...

Thanks guys!

Sure Jacqui! go for it! Knock yourself out! :0)

Cute pie!

Young brains seem to work ten times faster than adult ones, and they're connected to the fingers a whole lot better, too! I can't play Mario Cart at all. But my kids all love it.

Rena said...

Oh that pie looks wonderful! Looks like your family is having a great time too!

That pie looks so great. Try not to stress too much! I reduced a lot of Christmas stress by stopping the cookie-baking, but if your cookies look anything like your pie, your family might object. I like your observation about the 4th of July. It's my DIL's favorite holiday too. I've been known to say that mine is Thanksgiving, but talk about a lot of work. I may rethink that. :)
