So here are the turkey leggs that I made for Nick's classroom party at thanksgiving. 

these are the good's inside and the best method for stuffing...  the tinfoil was a big help to keeping the leg shape together.  I used some leftover painter's paper from painting the basement... the paper was nice and thin (thinner then a lunch bag and it didn't have any of the lunch bag folds either.)  then a little white paper "bone embelishment" and some masking tape.

the kids loved them.  One little boy said "it's too cute, I don't even want to mess it up."  Needless to say they gobbled them right up. 

Now, can't believe it, but it's time for the "Most Wonderful Time of the Year" and here a few of my trimmings~

saw this idea on pinterest or somewhere, to use 2 stocking hangers on either side of the mantle and hang the stockings from curtain rod.  Brilliant!  got the stocking hangers for 2 for $5 and had an old rod.  (much more affordable then $10 a stocking hanger, especially where there's 6 of us.)

this all looks much better in person, but you get the idea.

downstair's mantle, upstairs mantle.

hoping to get a real tree for upstairs soon, I'll post those pic's as soon as I do.

Feeling like an elf!
