The best Thanksgiving ever was when I was 3 years old and I baked an apple pie and a pumpkin pie. My grandparents came over to my house before we ate. So we napped on my bed and fell asleep. When the rest of the family came over they woke me up, it scared me. The pie burned so we cooked another one. Then my family and I cooked the turkey. I checked the turkey a little later the turkey was done. Then we ate the turkey for dinner. The centerpiece was a stuffed pig. After dinner my family plays games at home like tag and hide-n-go-seek. My cousin Eli stayed the night at my house. Eli and I play cards like Trash, Trashcan and Smack Jack. Then we go to bed and fall asleep. In the morning Eli and I wake up and Eli scared me. I scream as loud as I can and it woke me up. My mom and dad scared my sister she screamed. Eli yelled stop now I have a headache. Thanksgiving is exciting.

Some other things we will cook is ham, gravy, drumsticks, rolls and stuffing. We are cooking sweet potatoes, yams and turkey. We make a lot of things for dinner. Mom came out of the kitchen and said to set the table. Then mom said do not forget the turkey crackers. So we pull out the turkey crackers and mom looked out the window. Then mom said Sabrina get outside and hammer the rest of the nails into the chicken coop. So she went and got the sludge hammer and said I wonder what will happen if I drop it on a chicken. So I went to the chicken coop and dropped it on five chickens and BOOM!!!! Five chickens turn into chicken crackers and we all try them and say chicken crackers are delicious. Then one day she hammers a cow . . .
