Thankful Cookies!

We’ve been making these cookie turkeys for a couple years now and they’re always a hit!

I make giant, monster cookies and cut out the gizzard parts.  The kids do everything else! They cut out the feathers, tape them on, put on the googly eyes and write in their cute little squiggly handwriting!

We give them to teachers, aides, principals, room parents, custodians, secretaries, neighbors!

Hi, I'm Natalie and I like to move slowly (like a turtle, if you will)! I daydream about minivans, painting walls and eating fudge with a spoon. Welcome to my little computer home where I share my family's adventures as we live life from the slow lane!
