Thanksgiving 2012: Turkey and Big Trucks
This year for Thanksgiving we headed over the Callahan to have dinner at Becky’s great-aunt’s house. There were about 30 people at Aunt Glade’s and there was more food than we could eat. We had turkey three ways (roasted, smoked, and fried), vegetables, dressing, and desserts. Becky and I made a coconut cake, which turned out very well. We ate outside and the kids had fun running around with their cousins and their granddaddy.
Before heading back to Monticello we made a detour through Nahunta, Georgia so Mason could see the logging trucks Uncle Chris uses. When we turned onto a dirt road Mason asked why it was so dirty, and remarked someone needed to clear it up. Becky and I both laughed.
We eventually arrived at a clearing that contained four large trucks. Mason got to ride on all of them and helped Uncle Chris cut down some pine trees, dragged them, and trim them with the loader. He had a big time and it was a really cool experience for a little boy who loves trucks. When we loaded him up in the car, he was smiling from ear to ear.
