All the pies you could imagine


Kaylea Kuhlman, Reporter

NORFOLK– For my Thanksgiving festivities this year we will be having lunch at my parent’s house. Over the last few years we have had Thanksgiving at our house, but in previous years it has always been at my grandparent’s house also in Norfolk.  Grandparents, aunts, uncles and my brother Zach’s family will all be attending. We will be getting together at around 1 p.m. on Thursday Nov. 22.

My parents are going overboard as always and are making two turkeys and a ham. My mom will also put together mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans and stuffing. My grandma always brings this awesome pumpkin cream cheese bread that is to die for. She is also bringing these dishes that we call pineapple salad and corn casserole which are both my favorites as well. My aunt is putting together a snicker salad with apples. I also heard word that all the pies you could imagine are coming as well– apple, pumpkin, banana crème and pecan pie. While my mom is preparing the food in the morning, we always watch the Macy’s Day Parade. We set up tables in the basement so we can all sit near each other. During the rest of the afternoon, the boys usually sit around and flip the channels between football and golf. I will probably get forced into following two of my nieces around the house and playing games with them. We usually bring out the Black Friday ads from the newspaper and circle every sale that looks good, even though we do not always go Black Friday shopping.

At 4:30 p.m. after everybody leaves, I will be heading out to work at Walmart for the rest of the evening. I have never worked during the Black Friday madness before so it should be interesting.
