Thanksgiving dinner is here!
These three-day-old baby turkeys arrived at the local feed and seed today. When I brought them home, Hannah insisted on naming them. A family “no-no” for things that will grace the dinner table. She’s calling them “Thanks” and “Chris” in honor of Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. I think she’s adapting okay to farm life.
They will live out a happy life here until sometime in November.
Frankly, they’re a little too cute at the moment for me to contemplate Thanksgiving dinner.
