In Response to Re: Thanksgiving Dessert:
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.
