Thanksgiving – Mom made a turkey

turkeyand everybody survived to talk about it!!!

At my young age of 37, I have finally stepped into true motherhood and made my very first turkey… with stuffing.  Not just any stuffing.  Italian sausage and fresh sage stuffing.  And I made pumpkin pies.  And I made my sister’s jello salad.  Of course, Ms. Zhou was laughing the entire day as I studied the turkey trying to decide which end was up.  I was laughing the entire day because she actually threaded dental floss into a proper needle so that she could actually sew the turkey together after it was stuffed.  A needle… seriously!

Success!

    OH, MY GOSH. I LOVED HOW YOU MADE A TURKEY, AMANDA. FANTASTIC! I REMEMBER MY G’MA HAWKINS SEWING THE TURKEY SHUT WITH A NEEDLE AND THREAD. NO NEED FOR THE FANCY CLOSERS. I CAN HARDLY WAIT TO VISIT AGAIN. THE CITY IS GROWING IN LEAPS AND BOUNDS. I ENJOYED MATT LAUER DESCRIBING SHANGHAI. I KEPT SAYING TO MYSELF, “I’VE SEEN THAT!” HOW LUCKY AM I.

    THANKS FOR SENDING THIS. CAN HARDLY WAIT TO SEE YOU.
