Here's a glimpse of our Thanksgiving Day Banquet. We gathered at our Co-worker's home (Jeremy and Esther Lockhart) along with three other families. We had a wonderful time of fellowship and, of course, food!
Esther and I were given the fun task of decorating for the day. We had a lot of fun making name place tags and verse cards for the table.
Here's just a glimpse of some of the yummy things we enjoyed and the ladies who all helped to make it.
Here's the kids' table. (Johnathan was sooo excited to eat turkey! He's still talking about it today:)
The "grown-up's" table
And a fun game of Pin-the-tail-on-the-turkey. The kids had a fun time with this one. Mahalia didn't quite like the idea of having a blindfold, so she got to cheat (next year I'll make sure she's a little more honest!)
All-in-all, it was a VERY enjoyable day. We enjoyed the relaxation of being with friends and, honestly, it was very refreshing to be around other people who speak English! Yes, we did miss our family back in the States, but it really did feel like Thanksgiving Day - except, I don't think I've ever seen so many bare feet and flip-flops on Thanksgiving!
