Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!  It has been a really good Thanksgiving for us.  The sites had a shorten shift today - 10 AM -3 PM.  We were at the Book of Mormon Publication Site (fondly called the BOMPS) this morning until 12:30 PM and then we came home and Lee cooked two pork tenderloins for our dinner this evening with other senior couples.  Since he is the chairman for the Activity Committee, he has been responsible for this dinner.  We have worked with the Howells and Yearsleys to plan this dinner and get it ready.  Wednesday evening before site meeting we set up all the tables and got the decorations out for our dinner, so everything was ready for today.

At 5 PM 15 senior couples along with our mission president and his wife joined us for dinner.  We had so much food.  In addition to the loin, we had turkey, ham, stuffing, veggies, all kinds of salads, bread, and lots of desserts.  We had enough food to served 30 more people.

I guess if we cannot be home for Thanksgiving, these are some of the best people in the world we could spend this time with.  Today I am so thankful to be serving here and have the opportunity to walk these sacred grounds and feel the Spirit each and every day.
