Turkey Day

You might not believe it, but I seriously couldn't make something like this up. Thankfully, I have the pictures to prove it.

While my family was gathered around the table eating Thanksgiving dinner, three turkeys gobbled right through our back yard!

Literally, we were all chompin on some delicious turkey, when Jeremy said "Umm..." and pointed a shocked finger out the back window. I couldn't believe the irony! As far as I know, (live) turkeys have never hung out at our house. They had to choose Thanksgiving day (well, the Saturday after for the Mehaffey family) to make their visit.

The group of them dashed pretty quickly back into the field behind our yard. The fam all joked about how they must have been upset that we were munchin on their brother so they made a run for it, "Every Turkey For Himself!" style.

Where's Tom, been? Haven't seen him all day. Maybe he's in here... Oh, good, he is! But, waitaminute! What is this?! What in the world have they done to him? They're beasts! Run for your lives! RRRUUUNNNN!!! *sniffle* Poor Tom...

Honestly, some memories cannot possibly be anticipated. Thanksgiving 2010 will always be remembered as the year that we had four turkeys, and only one of them was cooked.
