I know, I looked like a deer caught in the head lights. I just couldn't believe he said that. After I came out of my state of shock I asked him when was the last time he cleaned house. A course he couldn't answer that one. But he did one better. And again I quote " As clean as it is you shouldn't have a lot to do. This time my look was more like you got to be kidding .
" And how do you think it got this clean, Fairies ?" They just love moping , vacuuming,and washing dishes. Oh, I didn't tell you about the elves I hired to cook and don't get me started on the wash. It was now his turn to look like a deer caught in the head lights.

I am posting this picture first,so that I may warn those with weak stomachs. This post will be showing a farm raised turkey being dressed. Our friends Jan and Fred gave us one of the turkeys they raised for the Holidays. They also invited us over so that we could learn how to dress it out.
I saved you the killing part. No reason to gross everyone out. The turkey was so heavy that they used his tractor to hold it over the can to bleed out.
This was the easiest way to move the bird to the work station .
My wonderful husband waiting to get to work.
This is a great idea. I never would of thought to use a turkey fryer and trash can to boil the water.
We found out that the perfect temp is 152. To cool and it's harder to pull the feathers. To hot and you cook the skin.
I couldn't believe how easy the feathers came off. You could almost just wipe them off.
Fred sprayed the inside and outside to make sure it was clean.
Fred weighed himself with the bird then without to get the weight of the bird.
Fred and Jan's bird weighted out at 32 pounds
Our bird weighted 24 pounds after being dressed. Any bigger and it probably won't of fit in my roaster. We owe Fred and Jan a big thank you. Not just for the bird, but also for their great friendship .
1/2 cup salt and sugar to every gallon of water.
3 apples quartered
4 oranges quartered
1 large onion quartered
I don't measure the herds. I just cover the floor of the cooler with a thin cover of them .
Half a bottle of apple juice
Half a bottle of orange juice.
None of theses amounts are written in stone. ( Jan added mint to her's ,I didn't. ) It's all up to you and what you like.

I am featuring this post from Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud. I fell in love with this and just had to share.
I'd like to introduce... Elfina, my Hand Crafted Elf. Ya gotta love an elf that's having a bad hair day:@) I just had to try to make her after talking about the elf of the shelf! She stands about 6 1/2" tall with the hat, so is a bit smaller but she is bendable and posable. Ultimately Elfina will end up on the tree but for this Christmas she might just stick around the blog for some fun!
This isn't a difficult project but it does take a couple hours. These instructions are for a girl elf but I don't think you'd have a hard time making clothes for a boy.
Earl only asks one question,
If Santa sends these elves to watch the kid's behavior...
Who monitors theirs???
On to the tutorial:
You will need:
wire cutters-or something to cut the chenille
One piece bump chenille-the color you want for legs/feet
One straight chenille-the color you want for arms
One straight chenille-for the torso, color doesn't matter
One 1" wooden bead-for head, or you could make the head out of felt
felt-colors you want for clothes
glue or thread-for clothes
something for hair-either paint, felt, yarn, etc.
trim, beads and sequins for decorations-optional
- Using three bumps of the chenille, fold the second bump in half creating the legs. Leave the long straight pieces under the two bottom bumps so they can be curled for tips of elf shoes.
- Cut the chenille for arms in half, you'll use one 6" piece.
- Fold the torso pipe cleaner in half, then bend each side in half again. I used the metallic one because it seems a little stiffer to me?
- Pull legs down through the center of torso.
- Weave arms through torso.
- Twist the torso so the legs and arms are secure. I also wrapped the arms around the torso once.
- If you're adding beads to the legs, slip them onto the chenille now. I added three yellow rondelles to each leg for a little bling and to look like stockings (I changed them to red later on).
- Lay the elf on top of the wrong side of felt and trace around the body for a dress. I gave myself at least 1/4" on each side the arms and I wanted a little turtle neck. Cut two. I would make the skirt a little longer next time.
- Glue or sew the fabric together. Note: I had some green mesh so I gathered it and added a little under her skirt, it was trimmed shorter later.
- Bend bump in half on each leg to make elf shoes (my favorite part-so cute:@). Round the skinny tip up to form a curl. Add bead or mini bell to end if desired.
- Draw a hat on the felt (like you drew on the dress), making sure it will be wide enough to slip over the elf's head. Cut 2 and either glue or sew together. Add bell, bead or pom-pom to end if desired.
- I decided my hair would be gold eyelash yarn, so I chained 12 with an I hook.
- Glue head onto body, glue hat onto head and glue the hair over the end of the hat. Or... If you are painting on your face and hair, paint it before you add the hat. If you're using felt or some other material for hair glue that on before the hat.
- Add any facial features you'd like. I'm not sure I'm going to, kinda like her as is...
- Curl the ends of the arms up to create hands.
- Name your elf and smile:@)
Have a happy day!
