I was in my daughters school this afternoon and we were helping the kids get ready for the Thanksgiving feast they would have on Tuesday.  They all had a chance to make turkey roll ups (a piece of turkey with stuffing in it), cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie (sweet pumpkin dip that they will stick cookies in), and a cornucopia.  The cornucopia was so cute, I had to share.  Basically it looks like the one below from this blog. I took a picture of the one the kids made but it isn’t a close up like the one above… Here are the ingredients...

// This year I decided with help from my non-shopping husband to stay home on Black Friday and do my shopping online on Thanksgiving and Black Friday!  Did you know that all the deals you get in the store can be had online if you have quick fingers, and do lots of refreshing of the desired item…  We got a great-super-fantastic deal on a computer package this season.  I also saved about 200 dollars on my children’s Christmas presents.  I got my parents a high sought after electronic for $100 cheaper than regular price. ...
