Turkey fun

Riley and I had some fun in the kitchen yesterday. Whenever I'm cooking or baking, Riley is always close by and eager to help out. Oh, I just LOVE that about him.

He's been deemed my little "baking partner"!

As different holidays approach, I'll begin searching for some fun, creative, ways to celebrate that upcoming holiday. Riley is usually right by my side giving me his input and advice on what we should or shouldn't do.

A few days ago I came across these adorable T.O.M. turkey cupcakes.

Sweet T.O.M. Turkeys
Riley gave his approval, and yesterday we rolled up our sleeves and got busy in the kitchen. We make a great team.

I do most of the baking, but when it comes to the decorating, well, that's definitely his department;)!

...and here's our finished product!

The BEST part was "GOBBLING" them up!
HA!!
