Turkey Treats

 First, a little turkey talk! I saw this darling pillow on 
Anne's blog, Cottons 'n Wool. If you are ever looking 
for inspiration, you can always find it on Anne's blog! 
I immediately went to Buttermilkbasin.com to find the pattern for this sweet pillow. Check out Anne's version 
by following the link above. Mine still needs work. 
Better hurry, Thanksgiving is very close!
I saw this cute and easy idea on Pinterest for making little turkeys with these funny flat pretzels. I thought it would be fun to do with our little ones who are here visiting.
My daughter Polly and her family are here from Carson City, and granddaughter Becky and her family are here from Salt Lake City.  We love this little family of noisemakers so much! They dove right into this project with glee! And they did a great job! Katie, our nine year old granddaughter, supervised and assisted while the twins, 3-1/2 years old, created these cute little turkeys. It was really a perfect project for their age.

We melted white chips, but maybe they were too old. 
A can of frosting would have been better. 
Check out the cute blog, Worth Pinning, for directions. 
And remember, we are just amateurs having fun!

We are also enjoying a chance to cuddle with little August James. He is the happiest baby! Here he is at the park enjoying the tunnel! 

Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving with family, friends, pumpkin pie, and happy memories.

What a happy crew (love that delighted face in the tunnel)!
Great turkey craft/edible--thanks for pointing out the difference between the owl and the turkey. : )

Lovely to see your grands growing so fast. Sometimes you just want to hold the moment. Happy Thanksgiving Marcie hope it's a wonderful day.
