Turkey FHE

Tonight we had a nice turkey FHE. We talked about controling our emotions, expecially anger, we have been having issues with that lately.
We made turkey cookies....I didn't get a very good picture of them, they had gummy wadles and chocolate chip eyes. Then we made turkey shirts. I saw that my cousin Lacy talked about having a turkey dinner and I noticed her children's shirts. They were so cute I decided that I wanted to make some. So the boys helped me cut out the feet, waddle and nose. And they helped me decide where they wanted their feathers. This is Kimball's shirt. It is harder to sew when it is smaller.
Brandon's shirt. He wanted a "pattern" because they are learning about patterns at school.
Then Nathan wanted to make his like the picture on the computer had it's feathers.

I also bought shirts for Travis and I. I will make ours tomorrow, but it will be ready for Thanksgiving, so that we all match!!

I am also going to get our family pictures done soon, and I want us to be in our turkey shirts. One thing though, the pictures do the shirt no justice, they are much cuter in person!! :D I will try to get pictures of the boys tomorrow in them. They are SOOO excited to wear them. They told me many many times.

So cute. Love the whole idea of being alike. We are truely patterns for our kids. They do watch us and learn from us even when we are not directly teaching. Happy Thanksgiving!
