Sharing the Turkey song & our Turkey day menu.

We've been singing this song with Carly all week. A song she learned at school during music class. Well, maybe I should say that I do the singing. Carly watches with wonder as she signs much of the song.

Five Little Turkeys

5 little turkeys standing by door,
One waddled off, and then there were 4.
4 little turkeys under a tree,
One waddled off , and then there were 3.
3 little turkeys with nothing to do,
One waddled off, and then there were 2.
2 little turkeys in the noon day sun,
One waddled off, and then there was 1.
One little turkey better run away,
For soon will come Thanksgiving day.

This song brings back many memories. Ashleigh and Brad sang it when they were in elementary school too. As a matter of fact, the music teacher they had, is the very same one that Carly has today.

I'm already hungry for dinner tomorrow. Here's our menu:

Nice big fat turkey.

Mashed potatoes




Candied carrots

Cranberry relish

Deviled eggs

Jell-O salad


Pumpkin pie

Pecan pie

Apple pie

Brownies (Brad dislikes pie)

Mmmmm..... I can't wait!
