I had saved five photos to tell the story of our pie tradition and how my niece and nephews broke the tradition that year.
Journaling reads: Robbie and I have a tradition of eating a slice of pie at 10 am on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. We started this the year before we were married because we’re always a little hungry mid-morning yet we usually don’t have our big holiday meal until around 1 or 2 pm. And besides that, once we’ve eaten a huge meal, we don’t always have room for the great desserts. So, we eat dessert first. However, on Thanksgiving Day of 2010, Trey, Nichole & Andrew totally skipped the pie because I had made dirt pudding and they wanted that instead. (Daddy had some of both!)
This layout highlights one of my favorite photos from that day - Andrew sharing his dirt pudding with me. Notice how he has his mouth open as if telling me to open up for a bite. I love it!
(Edited due to several comments - dirt pudding is simply chocolate pudding with Oreo cookies crumbled up in it to give it the look and texture of dirt. So simple, yet always a hit with kids [& adults]!)
