According to Gray, “to bake The Best Thanksgiving turkey ever you buy a turkey from the store and put it in the oven on 80 degrees for ONE WHOLE MINUTE! And THEN you put it in the microwave for ten minutes. When it’s done put butter on top. Doesn’t that sound yummy- butter, Mommy?”

I am having all the boys write down their own instructions for baking our favorite Thanksgiving dishes (and I’ll have them write down Gray’s) and we plan to read them tomorrow at dinner.

we are thankful for...

Last year we also had all our guests write down simple things they were thankul for on slips of paper and put them in a big pumpkin jar. We read some of them outloud together.

We are thankful. So thankful.
