Turkey Time...

Okay... in preparation for the big Thanksgiving day, I thought I would post a really cute idea people could use to take to the dinner. These will definitely impress family and friends!

*We actually have a friend (Andy) staying with us right now for work. His wife Sharon (left back in Colorado) put together a fun little package of Turkey cookies for us. She is so so nice. My kids loved them as much as I did. So, I asked for permission to post the idea (I think she got the idea from a friend, so not sure where it came from originally).  But the credit and the actual cookie goes to Sharon. Thanks Sharon!*

What you'll need:

  • Keebler fudge stripe cookies (for the feathers)
  • Chocolate cherry cordial (for the body)
  • candy corn (for the face)
  • Hershey kiss (for the feet)


Super easy... just melt the chocolate with a candle or a lighter on the candy where you need it to stick to the next piece. Don't need to melt too much, just enough to use the melted chocolate like glue. 

First you'll melt the bottom of the cherry cordial and stick it to the center of the fudge stripe. Then melt the tip of the cherry cordial a little to stick the candy corn on for the face. Then melt the top of the hershey kiss to stick to the bottom of the cordial for the feet.

Thats it! Hope you enjoy the idea! Happy Thanksgiving!

Pumpkin Patch

...I'm just barely posting the pics from our adventure to the pumpkin patch a couple of weeks ago. We all had fun searching for our perfect pumpkins and taking in the fall colors and the crisp air that comes with it. The kids had a blast. Whats not to like about roaming around in a muddy field?! Little Timmy's pants will prove how much fun it was.

Tim found Mosby's farm not too far from our house. In fact, you could probably see it from our house if we didn't have some trees in the way. They had a little maze for the kids to play in, a hay ride towed by a tractor in 6 inch mud, and a field full of pumkins! It was a great time!

My hubby is so amazing! He works nights and sleeps until about 2 or 3 in the afternoon.  He makes sure he makes time for me and the kids no matter how tired he is. Love you Hubs!


Ah... the pumpkin and ghost that Tim and I were stuck with most of the time there because thats all Timmy and Aubri wanted to do. Most of my pics contain them... sorry. But there are some good/funny ones to look at. ;)

This one speaks for itself. Daddy is so SCARY!

The girls turn...

Both kids! 

Tiger wanted me to fit my head in there with him. LOL! I can explain... I thought my bum was covered by the pumpkin... then I saw this picture. Seriously gave myself a good laugh.  


Last one... I promise. :)

So Aubriana left her sweater in the car and complained that she was cold. Somehow, being carried on her dads shoulders kept her warm? Go figure. She did this pose all on her own. 

My job was to tow Tiger around in the wheel barrel so he wouldn't keep heading for the huge mud puddles.

*So funny! They had these big boxes of "baby" pumpkins that the kids wanted... well, Tiger wasn't going to settle for the one in the front, he had his eyes on the one near the back. So he kept falling in the box of pumpkins...

...there, he found the one! Hallelujah!
