Another gift she gave us was crocheted turkeys for Thanksgiving that when you squeezed their belly, they "pooped" out M&M candy. It was a hoot, she had an opening in the back of the turkey body that you could fill with M&M's, my boys laughed until they cried.
I've lost track of her over the years, but still think of her. Her name was Carolyn. She always had a seasonal crochet gift for my me and my boys. If you are reading this blog post, thanks Carolyn for all the cute gifts. We've kept them all and put them out every season and think of your kindness.
