Just as October is the month for Breast Cancer awareness, November is for for men's health, prostate and testicular cancer.
People pledge donations for clean shaven men who grow a moustache, or "MO" for the month.
I had never seen my son with a stache, so I was a little taken back, but when he told me why, I thought it was a great cause.
So far he has raised over $5,000 !
To give him some MO support, I found a moustache candy mold, and Tgiving Day all the kids posed for a picture with their dad.
Here are his 2 youngest with their MOs.
If you know someone who is taking part, I hope you will support them with a donation if you can, in honor of your grandfathers, fathers, brothers, sons, uncles, nephews and male friends. It is a worthy cause to keep the men we love healthy!
We spent Thanksgiving at my dil's sister's home. Last year as a newly wed she hosted for the first time, and this year she graciously agreed to do so, this time, a few months pregnant! So next year another little Pilgrim will be with us. She did a lovely job on the tables for this large crowd. There were too many of us to fit in her dining room, so it involved a lot of carrying things up and down to the entertainment room.
I found these plates for the kids last year at a sidewalk sale at The Pottery Barn Outlet. I had to be
.50 cents each, full size plate. I think I will look on ebay for a few more!
Lemon Cream Cake made in the Heritage Pan. I used Ina's Lemon Cake recipe and made a cream cheese icing that I swirled through.
Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie with Caramel, in a gingerbread chocolate crust, delicious! It was from a small ice cream store on L.I.
Carvel turkeys for the kids...and donuts too.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, the weather here was wonderful, another blessing! I can't remember a better Tgiving weekend with 4 days in a row of sunny above normal temps. Perfect for that touch football game with the kids.
I am joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sunday and
Yvonne for On the Menu Monday.
Now on to Christmas!
