“I would get a frozen turkey from a farm, then I would bring a knife and cut it up, then I would put it in the fridge, then I would take it out, and I would cook it.”

“My mom just buys them and then cooks them. When we go to buy a turkey, I always come in the store. I love doing that.”

“I help Gramma a lot. Turns out, Papa has to go hunting for two hours to find a turkey. It’s been a little bit painful waiting, but I’ve played a few fun games after Thanksgiving dinner with the whole family.”
