A craft and sugary snack all rolled into one!
Tuesday, November 25, 2008

My friend Cheri helps me out with the StoryTime ministry, and she found this cute idea for "Oreo Cookie Turkeys." Our sweet preschoolers and their moms made them this month for a "Thanksgiving" theme.

I would like very much to highlight the name "Cheri" in the above sentence, encouraging you to click that name and be sent on your happy way over to her blog. But alas, she keeps an immaculate home, and has very good time management skills. I'm assuming those characteristics precludes one from having a blog? Not sure. But if she ever does hop on board the time-sucking but oh-so-enjoyable blogging train with me, you'll hear about it here first. Until then, just trust me that she is a delightful person, who happens to share my love of Jane Austen and great literature in general. (Thank you, Lord, for a great friend in Lubbock!)

The kids (and their moms) did a great job making their Turkeys, but I forgot to take my camera to StoryTime.

So, risking a sugar overdose, I let Dylan make another one when we got home so I could get a picture.

Cute, huh? Instructions here.

Those are cute! And, I think my house would definitely be cleaner, neater, more organized and my time more scheduled if I did not spend so much time on the computer with my blog! But, it's just so much fun, I can't give it up! :)

I think I saw this little turkey in Family Fun magazine. I sure get lots of great, domestic ideas from that magazine. Problem is, most of them just stay ideas.

Yay for Cheri! I hope she'll start a blog so I can be blog-friends with her! She sounds so great! Does she know that we had been praying for YEARS for a friend like her for you? I can't wait to meet her in person next summer!

OK, this comment's a little late in coming, although I did read the entry close to when it was posted. Two reasons for the delay, I was reading the book you gave me obsessively; AND I tried for awhile to think of something cute to say, to no avail. I quite simply do not have whatever it takes to write a blog, it would drive me insane. It would also take me hours, my "Time Management 101" book tells me that is a very bad idea. Thank you, by the way, for the kind words.

While I'm here, let me say that I am triply blessed in this friendship, and feel the advantages are all mine, so, YAY God for bringing us together to glorify You in relationship. What a cool idea.

(oh and I did get that idea from Family Fun, good call Lisa)

Oh wow! For a second there I thought I did something creative! ha ha!

Then I realized it wasn't me. :)Aww Man!

That was my only shot at being creative...working through the name of another Cheri'! I'll take it!
