So - what will I make this year? Even though, back then, I told myself I'd be strong and wouldn't conform and if I ever had children I'd raise them according to my ethics and beliefs and not cave into societal norms unconsciously.... I am making a HOKA turkey from the city meat market with cranberries, corn, stuffing and I really hope to find the recipe for that string bean casserole my Aunt K used to make - you know the one, the one with the crunchy onions on top? I always liked that casserole. Though a conscious decision, I am letting my kids guide my way, helping me select menus and making the decisions with me. I will say, it is difficult to say no to their enthusiasm. We do talk about the different choices and lifestyles, we do say our prayers and, hopefully, the awareness will be contagious. And... All is still right with the world.
Now if you have been using your mac to make cool slideshows and stuff to capture and save and broadcast your family photos, I want to introduce you to Animoto if you haven't already found it. Of course there's a free version- Here's a video clip:
