There are alot of things to do during Thanksgiving. First we have to cook the food. After every one has united at the table momb starts the big feast. “Pass the pea please,” is said in the mix of skatterd conversation over the table.

Things almost everyone eats at Thanksgiving is turky. Mom always sends your way the veggies to “get your nutrition.” I am always a sucker for variaties of pies. Nobody I know can pass on the delicious homemad mashed potatoes and gravy.

During Thanksgiving everyone enjoys family time together. We always take the time to talk and plan for black friday. The food is the best I ahve had in a while. The one big reason that tops them all is the great memories.

I have very many great memories from Thanksgiving. Usually alot of my family comes. We have it at my grandma’s. We always have turkey and a bunch of other food. We do lots of things at Thanksgiving.

I usually spend time with my brother, sister and cousins. We hang out together because we never get to see my cousins they live in Porter. They don’t come around much.

The first thing we do is eat of course. Then we go on the back porch and we eat, talk and play. After we are done we go outside and play basketball. When we get bored from basketball we go out to the shop.

What we usually eat is turkey, green bean cassarole, meatballs, and pumpkin pie. My grandma usually cooks the food I always say, “Grandma you are a great cook” and she always says “Thank you sweet heart.” Next we start to watch football and my cousins always say “I love football” and I always say “I don’t really like football.”

In conclusion on Thanksgiving I spend a lot of time with my family. We usually liek to talk, play, and eat. Also we eat a bunch of food like turkey, cassarole, pie, and a bunch more. I love Thanksgiving.
