It’s that time of year again where we stuff ourselves with delicious food, watch football and enjoy watching the New York City Macy’s Day Parade (whether it be here in New York or on your TV at home). It is always fun prepping for this family day – I especially love it because it is non-religious and everyone can enjoy it together.

Fall is no-doubtedly in the air and the hot weather here in New York City has passed. I noticed the leaves only started to change in New York City the past two weeks, but it still seems as if it were only September. With Halloween about to pass and moving into November and Thanksgiving, I was trying to think of a classic kids craft that you could make now that would last as a home decoration through November – a pine cone turkey! Easy and super cute. Here you go….


Pine Cone Turkeys

These little turkeys are fun to assemble and provide colorful decorations for your home, neighborly gifts or even the Thanksgiving table.

Supplies:

  • Pine cones
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Feathers
  • Googly eyes, white school glue or hot glue gun, other embellishments (optional)

How to:

Step 1: Use glue to attach feathers to back of pine cone.
Step 2: Curl top of pipe cleaner to form head.
Step 3: Attach googly eyes to either side of head.
Step 4: Attach head to front of pine cone.

One of the perks of living the cement jungle life of New York City are the festivities of the fall and winter. One of them being the famous Macy’s Day Parade for Thanksgiving! The night before, Macy’s inflates the balloon floats right next to my boyfriend’s family’s apartment in the city and his family holds a big celebratory party for kids to come watch, enjoy and eat lots of candy and goodies!  I am very fortunate because the apartment overlooks the balloons from a very high floor of a tall building and it might be the best view in New York!  Being originally from California, this event is even more special as I have only had the opportunity to see balloon floats from the television as a child, and now in person as an adult. Families from all over the New York boroughs travel far to come and see the annual ‘blowing up of the balloons’ and it is a tradition for many families passed down from generation to generation. This past Thanksgiving I can say that I am most thankful for the friends and family I have that could share this special night – it will always be one to remember (and I highly recommend it if you are from the New York or New Jersey area). Here are some pictures from high above the floats on November 24th. Gobble, gobble!

Here are pictures the night before versus the next day at the parade!  

Here are the crazy crowds that swarm the balloons at night
(and by crazy, I mean lovely NYC families)!
 

And then see them during the day…

I understand that the above title is very vague, if not weird.  However, I thought it would be appropriate to describe our “little” announcement.  We found out what our upcoming arrival’s gender would be last Wednesday, (the day before Thanksgiving) and since it was only a day away from Turkey day, we thought we would be a little naughty and make our families await the announcement until Thanksgiving day. So like good little secret agents, we were able to keep our lips sealed for one whole day.  Believe me, that didn’t come without the barrage of leading questions. I especially had to choose my words wisely, keeping “it” and “the baby” as the noun of my sentences and not slipping with….well, you are about to find out with “what.” That is the “Turkey” part of the above title, now on to the “Tails” part.

Before you go jumping to conclusions, you need to ask your self the following question “What Kind of “Tails” is she talking about?”  It could be that I am talking about “puppy dog tails” or is it possibly “pig tails.”  Two very different types of tails.  So which is it?  Puppy Dog Tails or Pig Tails…I hope you are ready for this one! 

It’s going to be….



We’re having a boy!
