Thanksgiving part 2

Last night we gathered with 22 members of our church group to celebrate another Thanksgiving. It was a great time with lots of food. It was also fun to gather with people from all lover the world. This meant that we had a variety of dishes including incredible English salads and even an African dish.

It was a wonderful time of getting to know everyone a little bit better and being reminded of what we are thankful for.

We set up a few tables.

and finished preparing the turkey and a few sides before people arrived. Our dear friend Lydia came over early to help.

Phil carved our little turkeys (a 6lb bird was the largest one I could find, so we had two).

Once we put out a few sweets for the kids, people began to arrive.

Then it was time for dessert. We had several homemade treats including pumpkin pie, tiramisu, fruit and cream cake, cupcakes, cookies and raspberry sorbet.

Several of our friends that came over are students at the local university. I love that students are always willing to take leftovers home with them.

It was a great time of thankfulness.
