Rileigh Krebs — First my daddy shoots the turkey. We take it to Nanna’s and Nanna gets it ready to cook. She puts salt, vinegar and pepper on it. Then she puts it in the oven to bake. Next we (all our family) eat Thanksgiving dinner together.

Hailey Collins — Put turkey in sink and wash first. Then put gloves on and get big black pan. Turn on stove. It gets hot.

Maddisen McAnany — Butter, stuffing, mix together. Stuff turkey with stuffing. Place turkey in oven. Bake at 325 degrees until the red dot pops out, then turkey is done. Enjoy.

Summer Haney — First, Daddy gets a turkey from the woods. Then Mommy cleans it. Next we bake it for 300 hours. Finally we take it out of the oven and eat it.
