After school we started our preparation for our dinner. We found a little turkey crown that fit perfectly into our oven. Our menu included turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry sauce, corn bread muffins, dinner rolls, corn, and cole slaw. Then we ended with pumpkin pie with whipping cream.
Thanksgiving wouldn't be complete without family. This Thanksgiving we are so thankful for technology! So, even though we are thousands of miles away from family we got a chance to skype and wish our families, "Happy Thanksgiving." What a blessing!
We were also blessed to have a co-worker of Cam's who teaches sciences at St. Lousie's who happens to be an American citizen as well as Irish join us in our celebrations. It has been awhile since she has had a Thanksgiving dinner. The kids especially loved having Deirdre over and welcomed all the attention that she gave them. We are blessed to have these experiences here in Northern Ireland and even though it feels different to celebrate the Holidays without the friends and family that normally surround us we feel God's love as He cares and provides for us in a strange land.
