Sometimes you can't see the forest for the trees...

...and sometimes the trees just look darn cute standing up in their little M&M and peanut filled cups.

So...I had some wonderful help today making Thanksgiving favors! There was minimal swearing involved with the hot glue gun, mostly because of little three-year old ears being present!

There was a little M&M snacking, mostly from the same three-year old who kept saying "Gamma, this one is sticking out, I eat 'dis one?"

There was some great bonding time with our beautiful daughter visiting from Salem, Oregon!




And look, look, look...aren't they cute? I bet you want to come for Thanksgiving now, don't you?
I bet you see some M&M's that are sticking out and you want to eat them, too?

But don't.

Cuz if you eat too many of the M&M's the trees fall over.

And then not only would you have to ponder the appropriateness of my header but you would have to ponder this...

If a paper tree on a sucker stick falls over in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

Deep, deep question.

I hope I haven't made your brain hurt.

Sigh...

These are so cute. How fun that you made these. How many people are coming to your house for Thanksgiving??? What a fun afternoon, time with your daughter and granddaughter. Priceless moments.

Oh, Jenny - my brain certainly hurts, but not from your post! No, it hurts because it's trying to hold too much information - it's like a dam, ready to burst.

I love the favors! You are just too darn Martha Stewart for me! :)

I was eating M&M's all afternoon - peanut butter. My favorite!

Good thing the M&M's aren't almond or you'd have to set another place for Thanksgiving. Those are my favorite. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

So cute! and they look very yummy. Makes me wish we were having a big family Thanksgiving instead of our same little troupe. My family never wants to get together for Thanksgiving. They all want to have their own leftovers!

Jenny those are so cute! I might have to have my kids make some. Minus the glue gun part. Maybe more like construction paper and tape, lol.

Hope you have a lovely holiday.
