Turkeys. One of the areas of agriculture I would say I know slim to none about.
Except the couple of lesson plans I have done on turkey production.
But today is about being thankful for turkeys and thankful they bring our family together every year around this time.
My earliest memory of Thanksgiving is of there being a turkey running around my city dwelling great grandparents back yard a few days before Thanksgiving. Then mysteriously after Thanksgiving it no longer being there.
Then one of my more recent memories..playing turkey bingo with my mother in law and my niece in South Dakota my first year spending the holidays there.
And this year spending the holiday with my family in Indiana, something I have been looking forward to since my morning sickness finally wore off. I didn’t think I could ever pass up my Grandma’s Thanksgiving meals, now that I am married I have to compromise a little bit here and there. But, I can promise you little Baby K will be getting his or her fill once I get to fill my plate!
This year I am excited to be spending the day with my Indiana family and my husband. I am thankful that we can all be together at times like this through the years. I tend to choose Thanksgiving over Christmas because the pressure of the gift giving isn’t there, but the love of family still strong.
Happy Thanksgiving and I hope today you are thinking of family, eating, and of course football.
