Popcorn Turkey

I recently stumbled upon this idea online and thought it would be a fun Thanksgiving project to make with Daniel.

Basically all it is brown paper bags stuffed with popcorn and then you put them together to make a turkey. Once it is all put together you can "carve" the turkey and eat the popcorn. We ended up making two - one for his class and the other one for a friend.

Though Daniel was more interested in eating the popcorn than stuffing the "turkey" he did get into the spirit of things after awhile.

"Holding the drumsticks"

"Putting the garish on the platter"

And the finished project with the chef......

Too bad real turkey is not that simple.

School Sucks!!

Well, not really in the big scheme of things. On the cold and sickness front, it sucks. Daniel is down and out again with a nasty head cold and has once again shared it with all of us. I do have to say, Daniel has a high threshold for pain and is a real trooper. When we went in this morning, since he has been coughing all weekend, the Dr. said "What will I find in your ears?" I was hoping to hear "Just Wax." But instead I got "Oh, that's a good one." So did not want to hear that at all. Thankfully, the ear infection is in just one ear and explains all the crying and on and off fevers he has had over the weekend.

But the visit got even better!! As the Dr. listened to Daniel's chest he said, "Has he been wheezing a lot?" Mind you he just sounded junky to me and of course I said "No, he has just been out of it." Next thing I knew they are giving him a nebulizer treatment to see if it helps at all. Thankfully it did and the Dr. even said, it is very mild but gave us a prescription for albuterol and told us to come back on Friday. The funny thing was Daniel did so well with the treatment. He did not cry, fuss and even put the mask on himself. I did explain to him it was kinda like dry ice from yesterday and the mask is just like the one we play with at home. By the time the Dr. and nurse came back in, they were laughing as Daniel just sat on the table and acting like he was a Star Wars character. He did want to continue to play with the mask on the way home but likely he understood he couldn't. Thankfully this is a short week of school due to teacher conferences.

I have to say - Only two months in + two colds = School Sucks!! Can't wait to see what happens this winter!
