Tweet Ups and Eat Ups

Last Saturday, I got to meet MarfMom of Musings of a Marfan Mom. You should read her blog because she's awesome. Isaac thought so:
She was planning on going to the Christmas Lighting Ceremony at the Oakland Temple and wanted to know if I wanted to come. Incidently I was going to be up on Temple Hill for something else at the same time, so I snuck away.

The program bigger deal than I thought. There was singing, ballet, orchestral music. And Santa doing the Mambo.

Here's Margaret with the lights.

In other news, I baked pies last week.


Mint Chocolate Cheesecake

Key Lime

Butternut Squash Pies

French Apple

Not Pictured: The two pumpkin pies I made last Sunday. Not baked: Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie. I'll get around to that one in December.


  1. If you like pecan pie, I have a recipe for Chocolate Pecan pie that my family loves. If I don't make it at Thanksgiving they threaten mutiny.

  2. I will say you are blessed and lucky to be near the Oakland Temple. That was my temple for many years growing up on Northern California. I never saw the pagents there nor the lighting of the grounds, but just to be there and attend to the duties inside was a great blessing. It will always be my favorite.

  3. We went to see the Oakland temple lights most years of my childhood with a giant thermos of hot chocolate in tow. Great memories.

    But I never saw the pageant. They really had dancing Santa pairs? Interesting.
