Arts and crafts, part 3

Today we made paper turkeys. (The colored ones are quite pretty, if you need any Thanksgiving decorations.) Jaan really enjoyed making a similar angel last week at the orphanage, so I decided to try this. Again, he loved it! Raia liked scribbling all over, too. Her turkey didn't even last long enough to get pictures of it, though. I got them posed and then. . . .

The head!

She ripped the head off, crumpled the rest of it up, and popped it all into her mouth.

Jaan's playing with his turkey now. Later if I can get it away from him, it will be the centerpiece of our Thanksgiving decorations. We're not going to do a full Thanksgiving celebration this year, because Will will be in Moscow, but we can decorate some. On Saturday when the youth come over, I plan to have at least pumpkin pie, and maybe some other seasonal treats.

A girl after mine own heart!!! If it doesn't walk away - eat it!!! And, turkey is one of my favorites, too!! So glad you all are doing turkeys! How about the pilgrims and indians? Lots of love and gobbles!
