Almost Had Us A Turkey, Mom!

Our version of a Where’s Waldo Thanksgiving picture?

A flock of turkey spotted in our yard as we were eating lunch — The boys immediately scramble from the table telling everyone to BE QUIET BECAUSE WE BETTER NOT SCARE THEM AWAY!

The turkey wander around for a while eating and gobbling. Excitement in the house is now uncontrollable. Thanksgiving is next week…..Lots of turkey in our back yard.

Within minutes the boys look like this: slingshot, bag of rocks, bow and arrow and a turkey call. They spent the next 4 hours in the woods trying to get a turkey for Thanksgiving. The entire flock of turkey unfortunately flew away after they tried to outflank them. One boy went sneaking up behind them with the bow, while the other boy army crawled across the field with a sling shot. Even though they came back empty handed, they were completely happy with their afternoon of hunting.

    That is too neat! You go get them, boys! Maybe next year they will get one. It wonderful that you have boys that know what to do and how to get those turkey’s! And your boys look so cute in their hunting gear!
