Happy Gobble Gobble Fest

Greetings friends, both old and new! I'm so glad you've joined me this morning - ya'll just make me so happy! I'm pretty excited to head to lunch today with BF and his sister (in from out of town). Should be a fun day and then I'm off to my parents house for the weekend!

Well in lieu of Thanksgiving, I have prepared a fantastic poem I found to share with all of you. It just made me giggle, so I had to share!



{ Thanksgiving Day Wishes }



T’was the night of Thanksgiving,
But I just couldn’t sleep.
I tried counting backwards,
I tried counting sheep.

The leftovers beckoned,
The dark meat and white.
But I fought the temptation,
With all of my might.

Tossing and turning,
with anticipation.
The thought of a snack
Became infatuation.

So I raced to the kitchen,
Flung open the door,
And gazed at the fridge,
Full of goodies galore.


I gobbled up turkey,
And buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots,
Beans and tomatoes.

I felt myself swelling,
So plump and so round.
‘til all of a sudden,
I rose off the ground.

I crashed through the ceiling,
Floating into the sky,
With a mouthful of pudding,
And a handful of pie.

But I managed to yell
As I soared past the trees
Happy eating to all,
Pass the cranberries, please!!

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump.
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.

May your yams be delicious,
May your pies take the prize
And May your Thanksgiving dinner...

Stay off of your thighs!
