Thanksgiving Dinosaur

My little grandson, Nehemiah, stood on the kitchen chair beside me while I carved the remaining meat off the turkey carcass.  He watched as I pulled off the wings and asked, "Nonny, why are we taking apart this dinosaur?"  I figured when he asked the question that he had looked at picture books of dinosaur skeletons recently.  "Does this look like a dinosaur bone?" I asked as I held up a leg bone.  "Yes!" he exclaimed.  Yes, we had dinosaur for thanksgiving.  They aren't extinct after all and they taste just like turkey.  


Our Thanksgiving feast


We ate the whole dinosaur!


Thanksgiving day was Annelise's fourth birthday.  She received a violin and her first lesson from Uncle Paul Burton.
