What's the best part of Thanksgiving?

"The best part, this year, would be that my dad is coming back today. He's going to be home for Thanksgiving."

[Her father is a sailor aboard the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz, which went out to sea Sept. 29.]

"We're going to have a turkey dinner. It's really fun to just get some time to be with your family."

What are you most thankful for?

"My parents. They help me out with problems and stuff. And my pets. I can't name all of them, I have 20 pets."

Are you the family that bought the zoo?

"No. We only have three dogs and 17 chickens."

"I'm mostly thankful for my sister. She also helps me out. Because she tells me what's unhealthy and what's healthy."
