Thanksgiving in Alice.

All twelve missionaries were invited to a wonderful American Thanksgiving dinner. The Jacksons and the Bartons put it together for us, complete with decorations, turkeys, pies, and all the trimmings.

We all pitched in on food, but the Jacksons and the Bartons prepared the bulk of the dinner. This was the first Thanksgiving dinner I haven't cooked since I can remember. We followed with fun and games and a chance to share what we are thankful for. It was a Thanksgiving to remember.

The missionaries were sooo excited about the meal. Here Elder Harding assures us that he's just getting started. He was! The second plate was close to the first.....and then desert.....!

This is quite a crew!

Time for pie!

The next day we used Skype video conference so we could share a portion of the Utah Thanksgiving with the family there. We loved that everyone could get together and we could be a brief part of it. We have much to be thankful for.
