Thankful Turkey

It was a tradition in my family growing up to make a Thankful Turkey every Thanksgiving, and everyone writes on slips of paper things they are thankful for, and stuff the turkey with them. And at Thanksgiving dinner, we read what is written on the slips of paper. Dustin and I have continued this tradition in our family.
The turkey has some evil eyes, and crazy teeth. Also, did you notice the "mom" tattoo.

Lauren and Kate putting their slips of paper in the turkey.

Kate is thankful for the "world."

Kate was Snow White this year. My mom always wanted to dress me up as Snow White when I was a kid and have my 7 brothers be the dwarfs, but they never went for it...shocker.
Pictures this Halloween did not turn out all that great. The kids were so excited and in a hurry to get into the Halloween party that they didn't want their picture taken. Lauren was a Vampire(except her vampire teeth wouldn't stay in). Parker was so happy to be Darth Vader, and Elle was fittingly a (pink) Monster.(she is a little terror these days)
Also, the kids and I made their trick or treat bags together. I remember making a trick or treat bag when I was a kid too.(thanks Mom)

Dustin made mummy hot dogs with the kids.
(while I was sick in bed with a cold)

And glow in the dark Lemonade. I got a recipe off of the Internet, and it called for tonic water. I had never had tonic water, so I had no idea it was disgusting!! It does however glow in the dark with a black light, which was really cool.
