Disguise the Turkey.....

We've been really struggling with homework at our house lately.  If anyone has any advice I'm all ears.  With two different sets of homework, two different spelling word lists, two different sight word's been a bit of a struggle to keep everyone doing what they need to be doing every evening!!! 

Last week I was pleasantly surprised that the girls homework was a FUN project.....we still had spelling words and sight words to work on, but we also got to do something fun!!!!

Alexis' project came home Monday evening.  "Please help decorate our classroom bulletin board for Thanksgiving.  Attached is a Thanksgiving turkey.  Please help disguise the turkey so that the farmer's can not find them for Thanksgiving dinner".

Here is the turkey we have to "disguise".

Alexis was pretty fired up about this project.  My original thinking was we would slap some stickers, glue, sparkles, etc on this thing and be done with it.  NOPE!!!  My little peanut was fairly adamant that she wanted to put a "spiderman costume" on her turkey.   How the heck am I going to work that out???   Thanks to the internet...Google saved the day!!!!!  And here is what a turkey wearing a spiderman disguise looks like.......
I'm pretty bummed that I didn't take a picture of Alexis with her spiderman turkey.  But I think he turned out pretty neat!!  Alexis did cut out the feathers herself and did most of the coloring, with the exception of the spider in the middle. 
Wednesday evening Addison came home with the same identical project.  Big shocker that she also wanted to do something a little out of the ordinary.  Once again.....Google to the rescue!!!!   Have you ever seen a turkey in a Mickey Mouse disguise???
Both girls were super proud of their creations!! 
I really have no clue how my parents helped with homework prior to the internet!!!

Halloween 2014.....

Thanks to this weather on Halloween, we have all been slightly under the weather.  Thus, the delay in posting these photos......

(yes that's snow!!!)
About twenty minutes into our trick or treating, both girls were asking to go home because it was too cold.  Despite the weather both girls got a TON of candy.  Because of the nasty conditions a lot of our neighbors were just looking to unload their candy because not many kids were out. 
Regardless, my little Anna and Olaf looked super cute!!!

This is the only photo I took while we were actually out.  It was just too cold.  BRRR!!  I'm so not ready for winter!!!

Alexis thought these plastic teeth she got from one of our neighbors were hysterical. Even a week later, she is still randomly walking around with them in her mouth.

Friendly Feast....

Last Sunday, (10-26-14) we took the girls to the Friendly Feast at the Children's Museum....  Complete with a boo-fet for lunch, fingernail painting, a lights on haunted house and a bunch of games.  The girls had a great time, although I hate to say; this might be our last year as I think they may be getting a little too old for this event.  (Insert sad face here....)

Here are a few pictures from the Friendly Feast....



I asked for scary faces....and this is what I got.

Nail painting....always a hit with my two!

Addison insisted I take a picture of her spider ring.
