What's been going on

This Thanksgiving I did not cook the turkey. Thank goodness!! I've come to the conclusion that I'm just too squeamish. So, I took over desserts. Way more my speed. My dad fried turkeys this year. AND we finally have a pick on daddy quote!
*Right after dad brings in a fried turkey*
Me-"Wow. It smells like chick-fil-a in here!"
Dad-"Gee, I wonder why that is. ."
Me-"Yeah, I--"
Dad-"You know, turkeys and chickens aren't farly disrelated."

Really now, Daddy?

The turkeys (That aren't farly disrelated from chickens) were very good. Specifically fresh out of the fryer.  Ahh yes. Turkey is grand.

I took charge of desserts this year. My little sister Miranda helped me. We were in the kitchen from 9:30 til 2:00. We made some no bake cookies (Which still didn't dry right for me. I can't seem to master those.), Sugar free peanut butter cookies, and sugar free pumpkin pie. We got mostly good reviews. I don't think the peanut butter cookies were very grand, but I suppose they were edible.

I have also been working on beading and duct tape crafts to raise money for my mission trip to Brazil this summer. Here is some of what I am working on:

                                   Duct tape wallet
                                             Duct tape bow
                                                   Duct tape purse
                                             Breast cancer awareness bracelet
                                             Purple earrings with dangling leaves.
                                           Beaded ring
