Girls Write Out
Monday, November 14, 2011
Recently we've had some visitors at the Hunter household--turkeys! And no, I'm not referring to our friends or family.

This group of seven or eight turkeys have turned up in our yard 3 times over the past week. If we were a different kind of Hunters, we might see a Thanksgiving feast when we look out our window these days, but instead, we welcome them to our property and hope the other kind of hunters are interested only in deer. (They are not fond of Daisy, incidentally, who once chased them into the sky. Man, can those birds fly!)

I'm so looking forward to Thanksgiving. It's seems like forever since we've seen our family, who lives in a different state. It's a time to gather 'round the table and catch up on each others' lives. And hey, the food's not bad either. What are you looking forward to this Thanksgiving?

Turkey's are fun. Well, except when they're flying close to the road. They have a tendency to go through windshields.

i think i like everything about thanksgiving. the food, the gathering around (actually the whole church sits together for thanksgiving, we're not such a big crowd. there's only about 70 of us), the entertainment (every year i have to come up with a script for a small play, they always turn out to be a bit more comical than i intended lol). but i think mostly the atmosphere, the feeling you get when you're reminded, more than just about pilgrims and the first thanksgiving, what Christ did for us on the cross. and for that, i am grateful :)

So true, Ruby!

Actually, Denise, wild turkey meat is delicious. It's all dark meat. My cousin does hunt turkey, so watch out!

I look forward to a quiet day. We'll be staying home this year, and I may cook a roast.

I will be moving two days after Thanksgiving so we will be packing, packing, packing! I have a feeling our Thanksgiving dinner will be PB&J sandwiches since I am not shopping for any more food and our freezer will be pretty empty. Oh well, at least Christmas is coming soon!

I am odd woman out. I don't look forward to Thanksgiving. I DO give thanks for my blessings, but I am not comfortable in crowds and we visit my husband's family (who are great btw) for Thanksgiving. I love them, but not crowds (about 50 people). I am deaf in one ear and am a picky eater besides the diabetes so I eat before we leave and I miss most of what everyone says. I do enjoy one on one conversations and seeing everyone. My husband would also like to stay all day and after a few hours I'm ready to leave. It always causes stress.

I can't wait to be with our kids and grandkids. We're eating at Cracker Barrel since I'm not up for cooking the big meal, and my daughter-in-law just had a baby, so she's not up to it. My daughter's the only one who could cook and we didn't want to put it all on her with four little ones at home.

So to Cracker Barrel we go. I don't care where we go or what we eat, as long as we're together.

I enjoyed seeing you and the family for Thanksgiving!!! Love you all!
