So, I have an obsession...

I love fake food!  I do!  When we only had Noa and Ruthie, I started making felt food for them and was determined to give them an entire pantry full of felt, but I think I only ended up making a tomato, a piece of cheese, and sandwich bread.  It was time consuming!!  So, because I missed my felt opportunity,  I decided to make all of this construction paper food for Ruthie and Lydia's school Thanksgiving party. Why?????  It took forever.  And I loved it.
Look at these cute mashed potatoes!
Turkey legs
Injury!  Snipped right through my finger when making the pumpkin pie.
Here's the line-up.  Not too shabby. If only my regular meals looked this good!!!!
Here's my 2 year old turkey.  Notice the hideous headdresses I made.  They were even MORE time consuming than the food.  Definitely didn't like that project at all.  Aaaaaand, I took it upon myself to make them.  I have no business doing that.
I told her to laugh instead of say "cheese" because cheese was not working.  Painful smile.
Here's all the little 2 year old turkeys.  Notice that Lydia is propped up on her seat.  She had just finished saying the prayer and I think she is the designated "prayer" for her class.  She is so dominant, and about twice the size of all the other kids, that initially she kept getting in trouble all the time in her class.  Suddenly, when they put her "in charge" of certain areas, she was an angel.  So, praying is one of her "jobs."  This kid is soooo funny.  
Here's the little 3 year old turkeys, with one 5 year old turkey thrown in the mix.  Can you spot her?  Noa was sooo excited for the Thanksgiving feast and was glad I took her in as my helper.  One of the other moms who decorated the table made a spot for her (with her name on it too) and she just thought that was fabulous.  They had a great time!
In other news, I took Noa and Ruthie shopping with me one day.  They are finally getting old enough to do it.  They are soooo cute and funny when I let them look through the toys.  I think both of them love to shop, but especially Ruthie.  She always wants her purse and her high heels too.  ;)
They kept discussing each item.  It was hilarious.
We had a few very cold days and our heater happened to go out at the same time.  The wonderful thing about living in the apartments is that things get fixed rather quickly (and not by us), but on this day we had to bundle up and wait longer than we wanted to.
Now we are back to our normal, sleeveless attire.  *Sigh*
Buddy boy, getting fussy in the car.
He keeps wanting to climb the CEMENT steps at our apartment complex.  FREAKY!  QUIT IT! I can tell we are going to be in for it in a few months...
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  
WE HAVE MUCH TO BE THANKFUL FOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
