Our Thanksgiving

We did celebrate Thanksgiving this year, together with our friends Tere and Alfonso and their two boys. I didn't get a whole lot of pictures since we were busy visiting, playing, and eating, but here are a few pictures from our family's Thanksgiving celebration...

Tere and I preparing relish trays and mashed potatoes...

I have to say that this relish tray was a huge success!
The marinated mushrooms were excellent and I
wish I had made more!

Pumpkin pie, one of Miguel's favorites...

Crockpot stuffing...I got the recipe out of a magazine. The
stuffing has ingredients such as apples, pecans,
cranberries, portobello was
super delicious and cooking it in the crockpot
left the oven for the turkey...

The turkey! This was the first time
I have baked a turkey on my own, so it was
quite a relief that it turned out great!
My mom says that you can't go wrong using
an oven bag...

Our friends brought over their Xbox 360 and
the kids enjoyed playing some different games...

We also played Apples to Apples Bible Edition and
had marble-game tournaments...

Miguel won both the Apples to Apples AND
the marble tournament!

Tere trying her hand...

Jkaile, of course, was not to be left out, either!

All in all, a great day!

Your Thanksgiving feast looked delicious!

Congratulations on winning Angela's Christmas giveaway!

We got to know Angela through her sister and now she's living in our house in FL!

You know Carrie Martin too don't you? I'm so excited that we'll be with her in MO this year! We got to know her when we were in the training in PA a few years ago.

Happy new year to you and your family! May it be a blessed and joyous year for you.

Thanks, Melissa! Neat how things work out and I'm so glad that Angela has a good place to live.

Carrie was here in Mexico with us all this last year...we work with the Spanish study dpt. so saw quite a bit of her. :) It was hard to see her leave, but are excited that she's one step closer to Paraguay!

Feliz Año Nuevo to your family, too!
