Happy Thanksgiving!

Last week I taught cookie and cake decorating at our Relief Society midweek meeting. I had some leftover icing and cookies and decided to use the extras to make turkeys for the neighbors.
 Here I am working hard at making them.
 I also practiced making other cookie decorations for Christmas. These were my examples to the class to help give them some ideas. A couple are a little broken because I tried to move them before they were totally dry.

The pumpkins have been carved!

Halloween is upon us and the pumpkins we found at the patch were so fun to carve.
 Dee's pumpkin is for Paul, our 6 year old nephew, who loves the aliens from Toy Story.

Visit to Oklahoma

We had so much fun visiting Carrie's sister, Becky, and her family in Oklahoma this last week. We were there to celebrate the first birthday of James. He was adopted in October last year.
We went to the pumpkin patch for the first time on a real farm, and had the country experience on a tractor pulled hay ride.
Dee had fun giving James a tour of the pumpkin patch. He had the best view of anyone there!
We couldn't decide which pumpkins to pick, there were so may options, but we finally settled on two.
