Happy Thanksgiving 2011!

Happy Thanksgiving! Hope everyone had a nice day yesterday. We spent the day with my hubby's family enjoying each other's company and enjoying great food. We also spent the day in obnoxious Thanksgiving-day sweaters!

My hubby and I have an affinity for "ugly" Christmas sweaters (we've even had Ugly-Christmas-Sweater parties before). Wednesday night, my hubby and I were feeling creative. "What if we made obnoxious Thanksgiving day sweater?" We thought it sounded like a hilariously fun idea. So we spent Wednesday night making these creations out of old sweaters and felt.

My hubby made a Turducken sweater. (For those that don't know, a turducken is a chicken, stuffed in a duck, stuffed in a turkey. People actually eat this.) The Turducken sweater was a BIG HIT!

I opted to cover the neckline of my sweater in a Thanksgiving feast!
The front includes, from left to right: corn on the cob, stuffing, pumpkin pie, cranberries, and a turkey leg. Bonus: crescent roll necklace!

The back includes, from left to right: green beans, pecan pie, peas, and corn on the cob.

It was quite fun to make and wear these sweaters. Plus, it was a great reminder of one of the things I'm most thankful for--a fun, spontaneous, witty hubby. I'm so thankful that I have a partner who likes to be goofy like me!
