Thanksgiving With A Twist!

Had another first to mark off my life list today: prepared Thanksgiving dinner for the turkeys at the barn. That's right. Thanksgiving FOR the turkeys! I was surprised at how like a human Thanksgiving it was...

The feast was prepared by cutting up acorn squash and filled them with yummy things like pumpkin puree, cranberry sauce, string beans and grapes. The dishes were arranged on a linened table. Pretty no?
The guests started to waddle in...
 The guests of honor arrived. At first they were more interested in visiting with guests than eating.
Other guests started hovering around the table waiting for the feast to begin.  Crazy Phil was particularly anxious to dig in!
 Finally the feast began and guests started coming to the table.
Eddie prefers to be served rather than dine 'buffet-style'.
 It's just not Thanksgiving until someone jumps directly on the table to eat the pie is it Rosie?!
 Food coma commencing in 3...2...1...


Rosie takes care of the bill!
 
The best part of this feast was not having to wash the acorn squash dishes. Maxine and Beatrice were glad to do them for us!



HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL!

That was soooo wonderful! You know that they'll be waiting for Christmas dinner now complete with stockings filled with edible treats!
