LETS GET READY TO GOOOOBBBBLLLLEEEEEE!!!

 

I decided that I want to make these cutie patootie turkeys, that I saw over at Blissfully Domestic.  I thought it would be some great family bonding time.

So I went and gathered all my supplies.DSC_0748

Oh I just have to show you this.  This is MY toolbox.

Inside is a bunch of stuff that I can use for just about anything.  Its like a Macgyver kit.  There is no telling what I could do with the stuff inside this thing.  Its a dangerous thing I tell ya.

Oh and just like anything else I have and do, it is completely disorganized.

 

Ok back to the real project.  Turkeys....

We painted our rocks brown.  Don't they look excited!!!!!

Then we I cut out the felt pieces for the feathers and the beaks .

Now it was time to glue them all together and add some googly eyes.  Don't you just love googly eyes.  :)

While we were bonding, Syd said "Mine is the best, its gonna be hot.  Hey I know lets let the people vote on them to see whose is the best!" 

So there you have it the Turkey Smackdown of  2008 is on!  Its up to you now, the good people of blogland to decide which little turkey is the best.  There are no fancy prizes, just the satisfaction in knowing that you have decided an all important event in our household. 

Let the games begin.....

Oh and just for the record the little thing on the far right up there, that one is a bear.  Its another one of L.L. creations.  :)

Just leave your decision in the comments.  I will announce a winner on Thanksgiving! 

Oh and no matter who wins, the point to the whole thing was to make my kids have some quality time with each other.  I think that was accomplished with only minimal blood shed, so its all good no matter the contest outcome.  :)

I don't know if I saw any that were "hot" but I do think number two is pretty cute.

Ooooohhhh...it's so hard to decide. I think if I had to choose, my favorites would be 6, 2, and 5. They are all so cute. I wonder how much blood would be shed at my house if I tried this little project. I think it's worth a try! There's nothing better than family time...and grumpy faces.

Don't you love it when you click to comments and FORGET the numbers you were going to vote for and then have to go BACK and look and then click on comments AGAIN just so that you can say "#2 and #6... I cand't decide" and then say if I didn't choose any of Logan's please tell him it is because Syd and I are like this X and then say if I didn't choose any of Syd's, please tell her Edward Cullen made me do it so that it will be OK?

I vote for number 5 because he looks the scaredest with those big eyes. He knows to be scared of the oven. He can't HANDLE the oven. :)
