PRESENTING: Cookin' Thanksgiving dinner with Mich and her favorite Kid.

This is us, as ourselves, fooling around today in the kitchen. Still not sure how or when Anna acquired the nickname "Kid" - I'm the only one who calls her that. :P hehe

Ahhh...what a day. Just about absolutely perfect.
Italian opera...the lingering scent of the sugar cookie candle I burned yesterday...all mingled with the stunningly delicious holiday aroma of Thanksgiving dinner prep.

{my mom took the videos - I'm in the Winnie the Pooh sweatshirt and fruity apron. It's a little old, but I love it 'cause it was sent from Zia Lucia in Italy. Oh, and the talk of  "don't  put these up", and "I'm un-tagging myself" is in reference to facebook. ;) }

Take one:
Take two:

At last, the infamous "church potatoes!" 

PS: for those of you who know I have a slight aversion toward  most female singers  - *ahem* I actually really love the voice of the Soprano singing with Pavarotti (in the first vid.) She isn't screechy. Unfortunately I don't know her name. :-/   


  1. My, that was amusing! I can't believe you don't like turkey! I think your mom was right, the we could hear the music better than you or Anna. ;)

  2. Aw, what fun! I loved watching the videos, Michaela. You all should post more videos. :)


  3. HAHAAAAAA! I SOOOOOOOOOOOOO LOOOOOOOOOOVED the vids!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You MUST post more in the future! It was awesome seeing y'all moving and living and breathing! ;-P And loved the opera in the background...and you liked that soprano, aha. Ok. Now I know.

    Anyway! I absolutely loved, loved, loved it. Post lots more!!!!!!!!

  4. That was pretty awesome! I've never heard you girls talking before, or interacting. Your personalities shine through these videos. So neat to see a new glimpse of your life!

    By the way... your Thanksgiving meal is going to taste wonderful. Yum!

  5. Looks like you have lots of fun together!:)

    Thanks for posting the videos, I enjoyed them!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. Love them! I haven't seen you 2 in a long time,so it was almost like seeing you in person! :) Hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving!

    P.S. I love the way Anna has her hair!

  7. You know, it's and Anna's relationship really reminds me of Nick and Jon's...Nick even calls Jon "the boy". ;-)

  8. Hey Michaela!!

    Ha, I totally LOVED the vids you put up. SO cute. You and your sister look like you have way too much fun. ;)
    I hope you and your family had a wonderful thanksgiving (looks like you definitely had a yummy one!).
    The music you chose for baking was definitely fun, too.. I really like Con Te Partiro now. :)
    Oh, good job on figuring out the church potatoes. Those are really good... :)

    Have a wonderful evening!
    Oh, I have to say that I do miss our little conversations via comments! I had so much getting to know you better.. maybe we could email??

    Love, Sarah

  9. So much fun having a peek in your kitchen :-) Love that you all have a cheerful spirit!

  10. Hehehe! These are great! So fun =^) Happy Thanksgiving by the way :)

  11. I *loved* these videos, Michaela! It was so neat to actually see you and Anna. ;) Too fun!

    ~ Love,

  12. I had to watch the video as it was a hit with some of our kids. But I have to say that I cringed during the stuffing making episode as I do the Thanksgiving meal. If you ever need cooking classes just let me know. I perfected Italian Sausage many moons ago when I was young. I made 3 1/2 tons in one week (seriously I did as I worked for an Italian specialty store). It took a Cuban to make Italian Sausage the right way.
    p.s. I go overborad with the garlic quite often with my meatballs.

  13. I am so sad that I can't watch these here at home! I'll have to come back when I'm at the library, because they look like they will be so much fun to watch! ;)

  14. Mich...random. Ok, so I'm so blond, as you know.

    Proof...I read over this post again and I'm like, "perfect day...the smell of the sugar cookies she burnt...okaaaaay..." :-P I had to read over it again to get it. :-D Yeaaaah, that's me.
