It's time for a roll call!   

Please list your name, age, any family info you'd like to share and how many cycles you've been trying.

A few fun fall questions as well:

What plans do you have for Thanksgiving?

What is your favorite Thanksgiving dessert?

How do you like your turkey, stuffed, unstuffed, or deep fried?

Will you be cooking any part of Thanksgiving dinner? If so, trying any new recipes?

Hi! I'm Brooke, 35. DH is Soon to be 37. Married for 6.5 years. DS is 5.5 and we are trying for number 2. On cycle 13 now. Should o right after thanksgiving weekend, I think. What plans do you have for Thanksgiving? We all get together at my parents' house. None of us are from AZ but we all ended up here over the past ten years. My moms family is out here too :) What is your favorite Thanksgiving dessert? Apple pie :) How do you like your turkey, stuffed, unstuffed, or deep fried? Stuffed. Have never tried a fried one. Will you be cooking any part of Thanksgiving dinner? If so, trying any new recipes? Yes! I bring green beans and sweet potatoes. I've tried numerous sweet potato recipes but I've been asked to bring the standard mashed with marshmallows. Seems to be the favorite. I'm looking forward to the holidays this year. Going to relax a bit and just enjoy the moment. :)

Homemade mac n cheese is never a bad idea! I love apple pie also, but am going to make a pumpkin and a cocoa creme this year. I make apple pie a lot during the year, my favorite recipe is one of Martha Stewart's and is just totally yummy.

I've never tried fried either, although my BIL makes it every year down in Texas. I've heard it's very moist, just nothing I would want to mess with it since it's usually pouring down raining. Also, the stuffing is so much better when it's cooked in the bird. I don't bother with the sweet potatoes since it's just us and they won't get eaten. I saw a recipe that I really want to try for sweet potato pancakes with a cinnamon sauce (I think?). I just need to make them and eat it myself if need be ;)

Thanks for a new roll call Melissa! Hi I'm Cat I'm your community leader. Ive been mia with the new stuff going on (posting issues) here. Still seems to be a work in progress. :) Well I'm 31 DH is 33 and we have an awesome dd who is almost 4. We have been ttc for only a few months. Hoping it doesn't take as long as it took with dd.
We are having double thanksgivings. My BIL and his fiancé will be in town, so lunch with them then hussle back for my neighbors annual feast.
Favorite dessert: pumpkin pie. We boil down our fresh pumpkin from Halloween so it's a fresh pumpkin pie. Yummy!!
My BIL's fiancée is vegetarian so going to see what I can come up with. If all else fails I'll make homemade Mac n cheese. ;)

Lia here. I'm 34 and ttc #2. This is our first cycle trying and we have a ds named Samuel who is 4 1/2. Thanksgiving is low key here - we did pizza & pajamas! I prefer baked turkey when we do a big thanksgiving.

Hi, I'm Patti 37 from detroit subarbs in michigan married to my hubby 8 years 39. We are trying for our first and I'm on my 10th cycle. Been charting but since Feb and just started opks. I like my turkey stuffed and went to my sisters this year for dinner. My sister in Florida is the better cook but I don't get down there much. I just brought pie store bought so was easy this year. Green bean casserole has lost its touch these days. Lol
