I made two pumpkin pies today, and tomorrow, I will be making all sorts of things for my family. We keep things pretty simple - just my husband and our 3 boys (ages 10, 3 and 1). We used to celebrate with family, but since none of them want to get along with each other, we will keep to ourselves and enjoy new traditions with our kiddos! :) Our oldest loves to help make the dessert.  I am hoping in a few years that the little two will enjoy helping me! :)

Lisa, welcome...I know just what you are going through.  My step-daughter has stopped all contact with us and I am not able to see my grandkids.  I can only adjust my feelings and actions and know that one day she will regret the time she lost with her father and denied her kids some time with their Grandpa.  
Enjoy your children and make the holiday joyful for your family.  It is not worth the stress and aggravation in dealing with bickering family members.  Shame when the kids act more mature than adults.

I'm always sorry to hear about families bickering and giving each other a hard time.  Growing up we had the best family gatherings and everybody always got along.  Usually we had holidays with my mother's family.  Mom made the pies and aunts did the rest.  Two of the aunts never married and neither did Uncle Joe, so there weren't a lot of kids around--just me and my 2 sisters.  Good times were had by all.  Now there's only one aunt left (the only one who married) and she'll be 91 in a few days.

Alright..my two "experimental" pies were fantastic!
I made a slight error with the two layer pumpkin but I am very happy with the results.  Th original recipe called for one of the pre made graham cracker crusts and they are 6 ounces.  I made my own and used a deep dish 9 inch pie plate so I was going to double the recipe.  I made the first layer and when I got that into the crust I felt I would not have enough room for a double of the pumpkin so I made a single recipe of that and it was pretty good just the way it was. Next time I will just make a single recipe of both. 

The French Silk was outstanding...no make that....OUTSTANDING!!!  I have made French Silk pies before and this was by far the best one. 
Thank you America's Test Kitchen!!!

That's what we did, it's just the 3 of us, so my sister didn't need to cook.

Even though it is just the 2 of us, we never go out to eat.  I really like to cook so always have holiday dinners at home.  Bonus is all the leftovers.

We had eight for Thanksgiving dinner and everything turned out quite well.  We made pumpkin pies, pumpkin bars and pumpkin cookies - see the connection?  After all, pumpkin is a "super food".  Our daughter made a bourbon pumpkin pie and it was delicious!  It sure is a good thing that all in our family love pumpkin.
