Happy Thanksgiving !

Happy Thanksgiving !

I had to crochet up this little turkey hat for the youngest grandson yesterday .. I used the pattern for an owl hat , made the beak bigger..made leaf like shapes for the feathers and a bigger kind of wonkey leaf for that dangly red thing .. He is so adorable and he will actually pose for you now :)

We got our real tree on Tuesday , IT'S HUGE .. and decorate it last night .. of course we had to run out and buy more lights because we had several strands that weren't working. I put white light on it too for the first time .. I thought it looked pretty with both the colored lights and white mixed. Its sitting in a galvanized bucket from an estate sale that I need to get down on my knees and scrape that label off the side ! This tree is filled with all our family ornaments , some from when I was a child..all the way up to the bread dough family ornaments we get each year at the craft shows. If you look at the front of the tree towards the top , my son and husband put a purple dog toy and I didn't even see it when I took this picture .. This is the 13th tree for this year ! I need to start showing you more of them !
Hope you all have a wonderful day filled with family and friends ! I have a 26 pound turkey waiting for me ! Happy Thanksgiving !
