Gobble, gobble! I hope y'all had a Happy Thanksgiving

December 5, 2014

I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving last week. We had the whole family over on turkey day. After dinner, we all went out to the “Jody Ray Sports Complex” and played ping pong, tether ball, pool and got into a heated badminton match. We watched all the holiday football games, too. Everybody left after we took our annual Thanksgiving Day pictures.
I passed out at 7 p.m. that night. I was exhausted, since i got up at 2:30 a.m. Thanksgiving Day to start cooking. I slept hard, and I didn't know where I was when I awoke! Man, that turkey was powerful.
