A Crocker’s Family Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a time to stop and take a moment to appreciate life’s blessings and all we have to be grateful for. Here at Crocker’s we are thankful for a wonderful team who support one another – on and off the clock. Most of you only know us from behind the sales counter, but we want to give you a look into the personal world of the turkeys we’re most thankful for this Thanksgiving!

We’re thankful to be surrounded by a strong group of women {and men}. Each with their own unique story …

“I am the mother of a two-year-old little girl name Kyle. Together we’ve joined our extended family for dinner every Sunday for the last three years. I’m also a certified EKG tech but have never worked a job in that field.” ~Heather

“I was a Sunday School teacher for 6 years. I consider myself a dork, mostly because I have an obsession with stationary and recently look a calligraphy class so I could send letters to my friends in pretty handwriting. My theme song for everyday is ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’.” ~Lauren

“I have ran seven half marathons! I like to bake sweets. I was a dancer for 26 years and still find myself choreographing routines anytime I’m somewhere where there’s music.” ~Melissa

“I’m an adrenaline junkie! I recently ran a half marathon, just went sky diving for my 30th birthday, have a concealed handgun license, and am a certified scuba diver. I love being active.” ~Makenzie

We’re thankful for the opportunity to work at such a wonderful place, with such amazing people … 

“Even on a bad day I know I can come to work and the girls will brighten my day. Even though I’ve only been here a short time, I value the relationships I have with each person already. We spend as much time at work as we do at home and they have become family to me. The opportunity to come to a place and be surrounded by joy and faith makes every day a great one!” ~Heather

“I’m thankful that I am close enough to my coworkers to truly call them family. The last couple of years has been extremely hard on my family and these girls have been there through it all, lifting me up. They’ve been my source of strength. They have prayed for me and my family, hugged me, and dried lots of tears. They even leave treats in secret places for me when I’m stuck in the hospital! I couldn’t’ ask for a better group of ladies to work with.” ~ Lauren

I am thankful for the relationships I have, it’s great to be friends with such a diverse group of women who are in all different stages of life. I’m also grateful to be part of my coworkers lives. Throughout the years I’ve attended many weddings, celebrated the arrival of new babies, and also stood by women as they became grandmothers. I love that I get be a part of these milestones!” ~Melissa

“I’m thankful for the respect we have for each other. I would’ve never dreamed such a large group of women could come together every day and not only all leave in one piece, but also care so much about each other. We are like a one stop friendship shop! There will always be someone there for you to laugh with, cry with, tell you it’s going to be ok, and even dish out the tough love when you’re making a terrible decision!” ~Makenzie

And we’re thankful for the memories that we’ve made …

“I crack up every time I think about Makenzie running around in a dinosaur hat dancing with her short ‘T-Rex arms’. I am so glad that we have it on video! I also love Lauren’s energy, when she finds something she is passionate about she goes all in and it’s hysterical!” ~Heather

“I love, love, love when we make our Crocker’s videos for social media, or events. Everyone just lets loose and we have a blast, there’s never a dull moment.” ~Lauren

“I love coming to work every day, it’s always something new and exciting. You never know when one of the girls will suddenly break out in song and dance. We love laughing with Kathy when she sings the wrong words, and then you never know when Makenzie will appear with a lime peel as teeth!” ~Melissa

“I love the spontaneity. It was literally my second day when Shawn had me in front of glass case of diamonds doings high kicks like a karate kid on the playground! I knew then I belonged with these girls. Oh, and it never ever gets old putting a bug anywhere near Melissa because the reaction is always hysterical.” ~Makenzie

We hope that you all have just as many people, places, and memories to be thankful for this year. From all of the Girls of Crocker’s, we’re wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving.
