Turkey What

Turkey cookies. I made these tonight to take to Ethan's class tomorrow. I made them for him last year and he reminded me of it Sunday night. So being able to take a hint, and not being able to turn him down, I agreed to make them for him again this year. I must admit, I enjoy having a little boy want me to do something like that for him. I always did things for my boys and their classmates when they were little. Now all they want is my debit card. Such is life, I suppose.

I mean, obviously, they don't look exactly like a turkey, but kids love them. Here's what you need to make them:
1 tub of chocolate frosting
miniature Reese cups
candy corn gobblers
fudge striped cookies
Take a cookie. Frost the top of the Reese cup. Put the frosted side down on the cookie. Then take the candy corn gobbler and put a dab of frosting on it and stick it onto the Reese cup. Frost another cookie just a little and stick it to the Reese cup. Voila. Turkey cookies.

Cute little things, aren't they?

Worked this morning and then went to get my hair trimmed. It was so nice to see the sunshine today. It's not going to be around long though. I think it's supposed to rain yet again Saturday night. Ugh. And into Sunday. Double ugh. We're having our Thanksgiving with my South Georgia family Sunday afternoon. We're going to my cousin and his wife's house in Cumming. So we're having South Georgia Thanksgiving in North Georgia. That should be a lot of fun with all the kids cooped up inside with it raining outside.

Finished up my painting. Now I'm ready for my dad to come next week and do the rooms he's going to do. I felt like my arm was going to fall off today while I was finishing. That's such hard work. But it looks very nice. I've got to go tomorrow or Saturday and pick out the color (s) for the rest of the rooms. I'm pretty undecided what I want to do.

Cam and Ross have been hunting quite a bit and haven't gotten anything. Cam saw a doe this morning with her fawn. He kept waiting for the big, bad buck to come along behind her, but he never did. Oh, well. Maybe tomorrow. Cam's never killed a buck before. I would really like to see him get one. I think he's going down to his hunting land tomorrow afternoon to stay till Saturday night.

Have y'all heard of Pandora? It's free Internet radio. You choose the song or artist or genre that you want to hear. It then plays songs from that genre. Amazing really. I've been listening to Christmas music all evening. Loooooooove it!

Guess that's it for Thursday. Till tomorrow. TGoodnessIF!
