I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving shared with friends or family and a large feast. We had a fun filled week at my brother's house. Of course what kind of Aunt would I be if I hadn't played with his food at least once....

So we made Turkey PB&J sandwiches, yes I know I made a turkey last week, this one is different and I made one for each ...technically 2 for my nephew as he did not want peanut butter just jelly...and yes I did ask him first but he wants to be like is cousins.

Next came the confectionery assortments for our family Thanksgiving feast. I made the oreo turkeys and Pilgrim hat cookies we tried last week, with the help of my nephew and mother. My brother then got my 2 monkeys and mother to help him make turkey cake pops.

For the tutorial on how to make the turkey and pilgrim cookies go back one post. For the cake pops, he bakes a cake (any cake mix will do) crumble that up, add half a can of frosting, and roll into balls. Next melt some baker's chocolate or almond bark and dip. Now they are ready to decorate for our turkeys we used candy corn, sprinkles, and a flattened tootsie rolls for wings. delicious and adorable. My brother is the cake pop king, it's just not a party without them.

Thanks to Daily Messes for the great idea for a turkey fruit bowl. I had a small watermelon and wanted to make it fun and this was perfect. He had a waddle...but tiny hands snitched it before I got a picture of it.

We also did one craft project, a place mat with our little turkey, pilgrim, and Indian.

Oh ad the background is the extra cool table cloth I found at Walmart for our kids table at Thanksgiving...all kinds of activities kept them busy so adults could actually eat their dinners :).

A great week off school spent with family and what to make for tomorrow's lunch?
