Tom the Turkey

This is our Tom the Turkey. We created him as a family project three or four years ago.  It looks like next year we'll have to give him a make over but every year I dust him off and give him a place of honor. Normally we randomly place Tom's feathers in his back side and let him be. This year we decided to use a feather a day the week leading up to Thanksgiving. At dinner we each take a turn sharing something we thank God for in our lives...then gentle place our feather in the old bird. It's definitely a tradition in the making. What kind of Thanksgiving traditions do you all have?
Hope you all are enjoying family and friends this week!
God Bless!
