Nothing says Thanksgiving like asking young children questions about the day.
Me: C, where do turkey’s come from?
C: The farm.
Me: How does it get from the farm to our fridge?
C: It just walks in, opens the door, opens the fridge and then walks in the fridge and closes the door.
Me: Does our turkey have a name?
C: Jo Jo
Me: How do you cook a turkey?
C: You bang it on the head until it is dead.
Me: Whoa! Wow. Ahhhh then what do you do?
C: You put cream on it and put it in the oven.
Me: What temperature do you cook it on?
C: 22 degrees.
Me: For how long?
C: 31 to 32 minutes until the oven dings.
Me: Do you know what Thanksgiving means?
C: It is when you get to eat food and when you are happy and you get presents.
Me: I don’t think you get presents.
C: Yes you do.
Me: Alright, moving on. What are you thankful for?
C: The whole world.
Me: Are you thankful for your family?
C: Yes. All of you.
Me: Who is all of you? What people are in your family?
C: You and daddy and Keileigh and Ruby and Mimi and Papaw and Makenna and Makenna’s sister and Makenna’s mommy.
Me: Maddie and Aunt Melissa?
C: Yes. And Makenna’s daddy.
Me: Are those the only people in your family?
Me: Um, ok. Are you thankful for anything else?
C: Nope, that is all. Can I have a piece of candy now?
So there you have it folks. Thanksgiving through the eyes of a 4 year old.
Happy Thanksgiving from K, C and me!! Bad pic, I know. It is hard to take a good photo in the movie theatre. It is our holiday tradition. We don’t ever have anyone here for Thanksgiving or Christmas so we started seeing movies. It is a pretty awesome tradition.
