Holy Freaking Crap

I just remembered that I signed up to bring 25 turkey cookies to The Jews tomorrow. Apparently this was in the midst of one of those "I'm the best mom in the class" moments and I was feeling more ambitious than I actually am. Damn these overachieving urges I get.

These were last year's turkey cookies. As you can see, each one is lovingly handcrafted and the mutants are all eaten so not only is it a tedious project, it is a fattening one as well. The mom's group last year was appropriately impressed, let's hope I can pull it together for The Jews.

Because I'm not busy or anything, with 3 photoshoots to edit, two full email boxes, 1 birth announcement to design, 3 orders to place, 2 sessions to schedule, 1 shoot tomorrow, an annoying stage mom on my back about her order and a trip to Georgia to plan next week (don't even know what day we're leaving or returning). Not even counting the dirty house or the laundry I'm behind on.

So tonight I make turkeys.

Gobble Gobble! Too cute!

Me, I say buy the Pepperidge Farm party packs and be done with it. Then have yourself a drink and celebrate the hours you saved yourself.

Or, just have a read about my last fews days and I guarantee you will feel better about your life, and your quality as a mom, because I have seriously deteriorated.

Don't do it to yourself! Just say no! That's my motto for all pursuits domestic. ;o)

Judy said...

Meh, who needs sleep when you can create turkeys, right? RIGHT????

Jennifer said...

Those look terribly time consuming! Adorable as can be, though. You have to post instructions so I can torture myself to make my children happy!

OK, first off, your turkeys? Fabulous. You must put how you did those on this here blog, ok?

Secondly, your list? Made me tired. I need a nap now. If you make it through that without some sort of amphetamine habit just to keep going, you are my freakin' hero.

Amy said...

Oh yes, post the instructions so I can make, like, 3 of them.

Those birds are amazing!!

Hang in there!

Can you post instructions on how to make them? They are too cute!

Tina said...

Those turkeys are stinking adorable! I've got a good idea how you did them, but I'm stumped on the heads and the eyes.

I have to ask though, who ate the other half of the oreos and the yellow from the candy corn? LOL

Ohmylord. Those. Are. Awesome.

What are the faces made of? I think I figured everything else out...

You know what? Not even freaking acceptable that you would put Turkey Cookies ahead of posting the stories from the bachelorette party. I am embarassed for you. Ok, I am actually embarassed for myself, because I keep checking back for an update on the turkeys you made for the Jews. *sigh*

Deb said...

And a partridge in a pear tree... your list is as long as mine. That's not good.

I think I'm the sixth person to make a request for the turkey "recipe". Are those candy moth balls for the heads? And red hots? I must make these.

They are so cute! I too must make them for my kids! They do look time consuming. Can you even still get candy corn right now?

Those are cute.

So cute and ridiculously goyisha.

I'm sure the Jews will love them.
