We got back at our focus on Thanksgiving today! We have a lot to get done this week because our first Thanksgiving celebration begins THIS Friday night (with my family)!!! Yay! So excited!!
(side note - we are also trying to do a full week of school as well so that we can take next week off! I will hopefully combine my week in review of last week with this week's on Thursday...if I have time! LOL!)
We worked on two projects today. One of the projects I cannot share with you quite yet because it is a surprise for the family members - and I don't want to ruin the surprise since most of them read this blog :-) I will share it with you after Thanksgiving though - I promise!
The other project we worked on was our Turkey Bread Basket. Of course once I again I got the idea off of Pinterest. We made our face on the wooden spoon. I cut out the feathers and Alyssa added some color to them and then Aaron taped them to the skewers. (Seth was busy working on the other secret project while Aaron and Alyssa and I did the bread basket).
This bread basket of course is going to hold the bread for dinner - but it will also serve as the centerpiece for the table! I think he turned out looking adorable! Look at the pictures and let me know if you agree. :-)
Alyssa loved coloring on the leaves.
Aaron did a good job taping the feathers to the skewer!
I had to get another shot of Alyssa - she was REALLY into coloring those feathers - and she made sure her scribbles were just right! She was too funny! (and yes, she is in dinosaur pjs - LOL!)
Here is the end result!! (nevermind the napkins that I am storing in the basket for right now)
As you can see - the handprint napkin fits nicely in the basket :-)
