The girls love to help out and they do a great job!
The Turkey was a big hit! Of course there are always miscommunications about this. They thought we were going to bring an alive turkey home and kill it, prepare it and enjoy it- all right here at home.
They said "No Thanksgiving in China". They are liking America a lot- so far Halloween and Thanksgiving have been a success! I don't think they celebrated many of the Chinese holidays. We read lots of Thanksgiving books and talked about what we were thankful for to prepare them. They were very excited for the feast and the beast!
It has been a long time since Hubby and I had Thanksgiving at home. In the morning we almost forgot to put the turkey in! We had to call my SIL for directions on what to do and google turkey! Despite the cooks- everything turned out great!! I should have gotten a pic at the dinner table- oh well, next year!
Katie and Devan brought the corn bread and made honey butter. Sarah and Jason (their friends) brought the sweet potatoes with marshmellows! They were both delicious!
There was a lot of football watching going on! That made the guys very happy!
Every holiday is a new adventure for us, because each year we have someone new home! The girls played upstairs at first and then ventured down to socialize. I think they really enjoyed having people over and seeing all the cooking going on. It was very festive!
We missed having Matt, Caitlin and Mark home but Devan and Jason did a good job filling in!
The girls (okay, and Johnny too) had kitty cocktails for a special treat- no milk this evening!
I tried to upload more pics but blogspot would not let me?? Not sure why?? I have never had them limit my pics before? Hmmm? Is this something new?
I think this may be a New Tradition! Thanksgiving at our home!
