Turkey Time!

Tomorrow is our monthly snack day for Lexi’s preschool.  I used to love this time of year when I had a classroom.  We were always making edible snacks so now that Lj is in preschool, I can’t help but relive some of those moments with her.  Since it is November, I decided to make turkeys for snacks.  I have to admit that I wondered why tonight as I worked for hours just to make 15 turkey cookies!  I luckily tried one last night only to discover that I had the wrong kind of red icing and instead of our turkey having a gobbler it looked more like a bloody nose!  I sure hope they like them tomorrow and I can’t wait until the day comes that Lexi can help me make them.  I even made one special one for the child in the class with a peanut allergy.  I wrapped each one individually and they are finally ready for snack time tomorrow!

Last night I worked on a scrapbooking canvas for Lissa.  I finished it tonight and this one by far is my favorite of all the 6 I have made in the last month.

My next task is to get a new postcard out to family and friends of our sweet Lexi.  It’s way over due!  I’d love to spend most of my time crafting but dang if for some reason I have to actually WORK!
