planes & turkeys

We headed west for Thanksgiving for family and snow and Cooper couldn't wait to get on the airplane (not really). He did love checking them out through the glass.

We finally made it and had a fun night hanging out with our Olson cousins. Our family had flights coming in all day.

That evening us siblings went to visit my sick grandpa while the in-laws helped my aunt with some cute desserts for Thanksgiving. I couldn't believe she was able to get Steve and Adam to do these. They were getting crafty on us.

They're store bought cupcakes. She then softened 3-4 caramels, rolled them out, cut out a small area for the inside of the turkey. That circular part was laid over the frosting. Then the extra caramel from the cut out was formed around pretzel sticks to form the legs. Then a lip of green frosting was added around the rim and small pieces of angel food cake were stuffed in the opening to look like stuffing. Pretty cool if you ask me and the kids loved them.
