Gobble Gobble

Seriously, have you seen a cuter turkey???

This fruity-licious bird is made out of a honey dew body, with cheese and grapes on skewers and yellow, orange and red bell peppers as the tail feathers. The head is a bosq(sp?) pear, the feet are red bell peppers cut out like bird toes. Cute huh?
And on the cupcakes below, the tail feathers are strips of fruit by the foot. They wrapped it around a tooth pick and cut in the shape of feathers. Then two dots of white icing and black gel for the eyes.
So cute!

Oh, but wait...I have seen cuter turkeys!!!!

These photos were taken 2 years ago. Granny HANDMADE these costumes using a pattern out of the Martha Stewart Baby magazine. I had actually saved the pattern from BEFORE I EVEN HAD KIDS because I saw it one Fall and thought it was so stinkin cute! (I know what you're thinking...why was I reading a "baby" magazine before I had kids...I don't really know. I guess it's kind of like looking at bride magazines when you're 13! Dreamy!!! Boy, was I delusional!)

Cutie-licious! Mmmmmmm, I could eat them up!!!!!

OH MY STARS!!!! Have you ever seen anything cuter than that????
Gobble Gobble!

Actually, it is funny you post this...

just this last week, i suggested (if i got next friday off) going to south carolina to see family and surprise them with coming and dress the kids up in turkey outfits and let them ring the doorbell that way. i don't think we can go, but maybe another trip.

i still have that picture on my fridge and i was thinking about turkey costumes along those lines.
