Turkey by Jackson

Once again, a little late with this post. :) Thanksgiving was supposed to be quiet and small this year. Just my parents and brother along with our family at our home. But it got a little crazier when Chris separated his shoulder at the annual Mission Turkey Bowl. Jackson, Kai and I were there cheering him on when he went up for his fifth interception and came down right on his shoulder. My immediate response was, "GET UP! SHAKE IT OFF!" and then when finding out he was really hurt I thought about all my weekend plans (for Chris) not happening. No putting up the tree, no hanging Christmas lights, and no cleaning out the turkey. I know, I know, POOR CHRIS! After getting x-rays and determining nothing was broken it was time for me to prepare Thanksgiving dinner. Unfortunately an uncooked turkey makes me gag. Especially one that I'm supposed to clean out and remove stuff from. Luckily for me I have a great little helper when it comes to all things gross, Jackson! He was SO HELPFUL! He cleaned it, stuck his hand in it and pulled out the gross stuff, and the whole time kept asking, "Mom, where is his face?" He was also the first one sitting at the table ready to dig into "the biggest turkey he's ever seen!" Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
