Our own Thanksgiving

Although we had a Thanksgiving dinner with the students and the other center families as soon as we got home from Galilee on November 24, our family celebrated our own Thanksgiving in our apartment the next day as soon as I finished with work.  It gave us a chance to celebrate the holiday as we do at home with our own family around the table with all of our accustomed foods and traditions.  Elaine really outdid herself---it was hard work (and expensive) getting a turkey and many of the foods that are not common here.  But it was worth it, especially when Samuel said afterwards that "This was the best Thanksgiving ever!"

First a slightly little video collage and then some pictures from the day:
