'Twas the night of Thanksgiving, but I just couldn't sleep,
I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep

The leftovers beckoned - the dark meat and white
But I fought the temptation with all of my might

Tossing and turning with anticipation,
The thought of a snack became infatuation

So, I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door
And gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore

I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes

I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,
'Till all of a sudden, I rose off the ground

I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky
With a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie

But I managed to yell as I soared past the trees
"Happy eating to all -  pass the cranberries, please!"

May your stuffing be tasty, may your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes 'n gravy  have nary a lump

May your yams be delicious, may your pies take the prize,
May your Thanksgiving dinner stay off of your thighs!

                                   - Not sure where I got this or the author, but I love it!

Happy Thanksgiving holiday to everyone!

So glad you all like it and it brings a smile to your face!  I have no idea who wrote it, but I have used it for years and every year it seems to get funnier.  I can just picture floating in the sky, past the trees.... 

Happy Thanksgiving... I am really grateful to be a part of the AR community!
