Capture the pie: Davis style!

So most families have traditions on Thanksgiving. Some get around in a circle and say what they're thankful for. Some play a friendly game of touch football in the front yard. (Phat Boyz 2012!) Some eat and eat and eat, then sit around the living room scouting out the deals they HAVE TO HAVE out of the black Friday ads. 

OK, my family does everyone of these things, every year, but the main point of this post is our newest tradition. 

Capture the Pie.

My Meemaw's peanut butter pie, to be exact. It is like heaven in a crust. Smooth, silky, creamy JOY!

Object of the "game" is to end up with the pie, in your vehicle, at the end of the day. First person to hide it has to hide it well BECAUSE whoever finds it can eat what they want out of it, then re-hide the pie. So on and so forth, until either you (or someone else) go home with your pie, or it is completely consumed by ravage cavemen (the rival partakers of said game.) 

Yesterday we started with 4 pies. My brother, Kendall, our cousin, Ty and myself had an "alliance" going for our pie (that was never found by anyone else, by the way! We took home the entire thing!) My uncle and I went back and forth with his though, and by the end of it, I think he left with one piece. HA. A couple others were pilfered , however, I have no idea who the victors of those pies are. After eating till' we literally couldn't sit straight, the kiddos played in the leaves. I do have some pictures of Kelci and Kamree, SO enjoy!
