Oh my check out this Nutter Butter Pilgrim the kiddos and I whipped up this afternoon. I will admit this one was the hubby’s idea and he did most of the work, ha ha. He can be so creative at times. With Thanksgiving just around the corner we have broken out the Thanksgiving decor. I was quite obsessed for many years on Pottery Barn Kids Thanksgiving lines that include all the turkey and Pilgrim tableware. This year I want a special treat to match all of our cute Thanksgiving dinnerware.
