Turkey Day Recap

Thanksgiving has come and gone. And it was a whirlwind. I had to leave Rykert and Nola behind in IC, and unfortunately my mom had to have surgery on her newly broken foot a few days before the big day, but regardless we had a fun holiday.


I've been in a crafting and knitting rut as of late. But my younger sister carried the day with her creations. She set an extensive table for the kids to eat their meal. Back when I was on my felt food kick, I got her started, and she's become obsessed.

She started with felt chair covers.

At each setting, there was a felt turkey dinner.

In the center was a lovely roast turkey.

I did contribute by ordering plastic wishbones so that there wasn't a fight.

It was enjoyed by all.

I did find a very cute free printable on the Internet and hang it in the kitchen.

My sister wanted to again show us all up, so she completed her crafting with cupcakes that look like a turkey tv dinner. I find the mashed potatoes particularly authentic.

Unfortunately I don't have any more pictures. I didn't capture the whole crowd, the well-prepared meal, or the food comas that ensued. We spent Friday at Mary Poppins which was an impressive traveling show with some really great effects.

Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving!
