I know we are all from different parts, but here in the United States, TODAY is Thanksgiving.
We are celebrating it with my mother-in-law. My mom is having, I think she said 13 people over. Over the summer, she gave me her china - doesn't use it much anymore and she knew I would like it.
Before she and my dad married, we lost my dad to cancer (#cancersucks) a couple years ago, she would purchase a place setting each week (paydays were weekly back then!). So while I will not be spending Thanksgiving with my mom, both she and dad will be part of our Thanksgiving dinner.
Mom actually flew up last week to surprise me. Well, she got a surprise too! I had two classes and Ronald McDonald House scheduled while she was here so she was able to craft with us!
Want to see what we made at Ronald McDonald House on Sunday? But first, I gotta tell you, the kids were so stinkin' cute! I know there was candy involved, but everyone smiled when they made these little turkeys - they were just so much fun!
The kids (and adults!) held the turkey for the photo. Some of the kids even shook the turkey to say "Gobble! Gobble" for the photo! I just LOVE that Stampin'Up! supports Ronald McDonald House Charities! If you are a local demo, please sign up to volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House - especially the Columbus one - you will not regret it. It's all about the kids and we have a LOT of fun!
Ok, so without further ado, here are the creations the kids and adults made. I know there is a story with each one of them and I pray they are enjoying family today as well...
|Bottom right photo - the young man told me that his turkey treat was called Mr. Gobbles.|
I liked that so much, I started using it throughout the day!
|These were made by two brothers.|
After they made the first one,
they EACH wanted to make another one - this time for their mom!The boys posed with BOTH of their turkeys.
The blurry one is saying "Gobble! Gobble!" for the camera. :)
|These just make me smile!|
|Top photo turkeys were made by three adults.|
Bottom photo turkeys were made by three brothers, with dad's help!
|I think these chocolate stuffed turkeys look DELICIOUS!|
|Kids at work on the top|
Parents displaying their beautiful turkeys on the bottom!
|This is what we started with.|
So blessed to be a part of this!
|The table when we began!|
Made it easy to help each person make his or her own Mr. Gobbles!
Do not be anxious about anything,
but in every situation, by prayer and petition,
present your requests to God.
And the peace of God,
which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7 (KJV)
