Thanksgiving Day is now over, but as usual I am still stuffed! We celebrated on Friday, which technically was still Thursday in the states. All the missionaries came together to eat, and eat, and eat some more. It was joyous. It was also my very first Thanksgiving of actually doing some of the cooking…I made the mashed potatoes and green beans (Which in stifling temperatures and no air conditioning is a feat in and of itself).
The other added bonus is that we got to watch my ASU Sun Devils play USC in a Thanksgiving Day football game on ESPN….(even though we got our butts kicked)…. it was still just like being home. We played games and watched “So you think u can Dance” finale.
Even though I wasn’t at home with my family to celebrate Thanksgiving, I was thankful to celebrate it with my “family away from home.”
…..on to Christmas!!!!
