Thanksgiving with the Watkins is all about traditions. About three years ago, my daughter, Devon, introduced us to a new tradition, Turkey Bowling. It is a hoot! First, we have to prepare the turkey. Wrap tightly in duct tape to handle the skidding across blacktop. Let me tell you that skidding across blacktop tenderizes the meat for future roasting.
Keep wrapping boys!
My sister found these pins at an old bowling alley that was being torn down and her husband, Jack, refinished them and gave them to us for Christmas last year.
We split up into teams. Here are the Spring Chickens.
And the Roosters.

Sorry no pictures of the mayhem, the pictures were all blurry but you can see the outcome. We lost by one point!
Now it is dinner time. Every year, I promise myself that I am going to be creative before each season. Well, I am quite proud of myself because I pulled off this handmade napkin rings. Thank you Matthew Mead!
The Thanksgiving table. Thank goodness we only had six people for dinner! My tiny little dining room couldn't handle much more.
Afterwards, everyone was in a Trytophan haze as you can see.. I hope that you enjoyed your Thanksgiving with family and friends. Next, onto the BIG season. Merrily, merrily.....
