A birthday bash, a tree lighting fiasco, and turkeys, turkeys, turkeys...

Last weekend was Phoebe's big day, or days I should say as she had a sleepover (yawn!).
This was the cake.  There was quite a discussion about it.  First she cautiously approached me and said "Mom, I'm not going to have to have a lemon cake, am I?" (see this post)
"No, of course not. You can have any kind of cake you like! ....With lemon frosting."

Then she decided my bundt pan was not good enough.  So I searched the cabinet and found an old duck shaped pan from Naomi's 2nd birthday and made it with that. Quite honestly I expected her to freak out on me when I picked her and her friends up from school, but they were thrilled and decorated it together as a party activity. Who can predict pre-teens?

Anyway they went to the Phoenix Art Museum, then ate pizza, watched movies and hardly slept.

On Saturday I heard that Philip Philips was giving a free concert at the Athems Outlet for the tree lighting ceremony.  All I can say is that going to it seemed like a good idea at the time.  It wasn't. Everyone else also decided to go, which means we got stuck in the hugest traffic jam, parked blocks away and arrived as he finished singing.
We saw him light the Christmas tree though.  Which was huge and very pretty.

I'm still posting a hand turkey a day on Facebook and on my art blog until Thanksgiving (which means until tomorrow.)  This one (above) is sold!  It's actually done in pen and ink and digitally colored, but the buyer wanted it in color.  So I hand colored the original....
It looks better in person as this photo is very blurry.

And this hand turkey is up for auction here.  They're priced well and make a unique holiday gift!  Only two days left.   In the mean time have a lovely Thanksgiving!  (And for my readers outside of the United States have an excellent Thursday!)

Just a note to say both of these hand turkey paintings sold at auction! Thank you to my collectors. :)

"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
