Turkey on a stick project!

We made turkey buy tracing our hand on foam paper, then cutting them out, gluing them to a Popsicle stick and then decorating them. We used pom poms for feathers, and the glitter of course!!! We love glitter! The kiddos really enjoyed making their turkeys!! We had a blast!

Seeing Santa Claus for the first time this year!

Sunday, while in Savannah, we went to the Bass Pro Shop. I was walking around upstairs and was completely SURPRISED to see Santa Claus!!!! Of course I ran and got McKenzie and we were watching him talked to the other kids. I was thinking this may be good!!! She just might do it this year! The closer & closer we got to him the tighter she grabbed my neck! I handed her off to Jacob so I could snap a picture as Jacob handed her off to Santa. Well....that didn't work as planned! The closer Jacob got the more she wanted me, so I got her, we sat in Santa Claus's lap talking to him, she looked at him, touched the fur on his suit. I hot up and sat her down in his lap.... haha!!! such a cute picture!!! but it is early! I plan for us to see Santa as MANY times as we possibly can!!!

Turtleneck Dress & Outfit

Here are two outfits I made McKenzie a few weeks ago that she finally got to wear the other day, It still hasn't been too cold here! I got a few pics of her in these. One is a turtleneck dress, that I added fabric & ricrac to. The other is a turtle neck I added some fabric to, and made a top, then bought her some jeans, cut off the bottoms and added the coordinating ruffle!
