Apparently Thanksgiving is the same no matter where you are, as long as you can find the right food! We were very lucky in that we were able to have turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, carrots in brown sugar glaze, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie and apple pie (the pies were courtesy of Costco). We even had sweet potatoes, even though we used a sweet potato grown locally, called camote. It turned out really good and the elders loved it!
We invited the assistants, Elder Tate and Elder Gonzalez, our recovering elder, Elder Wennerholm, the office elders, Elder Guzman and Elder Rainford, and the elders from our area, Elder Wiggington, Elder Rodriguez, Elder Bertha and Elder Hernandez over for dinner. We also invited Magdalena to stay for dinner. She attends our ward and comes over to clean the house four days a week. She also helps me to cook occasionally. It was really fun to have so many people for Thanksgiving. It almost felt like home.
