I got the bright idea to make cheesecake for the first time ever this Thanksgiving...only I didn't start until 11 at night. I had to go hot tubbing. It was a serious priority!! Only cheesecakes take a looong time. Did you know they bake for over in hour? And then you cool them in the oven for thirty minutes? And that you take them out of the oven and wait for thirty minutes before you can place them in the fridge to chill??? All I'm hoping is that this Pumpkin Cheesecake is a success after the loss of sleep.
Fun fact, this is the second night in a row that I have stayed up past 1 AM. Last night I drove out to 210/I-15 junction to meet my sister and Dan's brother on their way down from Utah.
Even though I'm suffering sleep deprivation, and I just KNOW that my baby is going to wake up at 6AM tomorrow (this??) morning, it's all worth it. Thanksgiving Day hasn't even happened yet, and it's all already been worth it. I love these people I am with right now, I love hot tubbing with them, talking with them,
I probably will be tired tomorrow morning, but it's a small price to pay to enjoy time Hope, Carrie, Dave, Steph, Zach, Kim, Melanie, Mason, Dan, and London. (Normally houses stuffed full of people sound uncomfortable, but at the holidays it just seems perfect.)
While I'm up and blogging at unholy hours, here is London's alphabet wall! Thanks to my madre for helping make this dream a reality! She helped me pick out and even paint some of the letters (and she financed the whole project! What a gal!!)
|As you can see, London loves it!|
