Thanksgiving 2011

We had a wonderful thanksgiving.  We have had so much to be thankful for this year, and it was wonderful to spend this holiday sharing with others as well.  We had four missionaries from our church over (two Americans, a Korean and Japanese), and a sister in our branch who is here without family. 

We made a fantastic feast of turkey (which we brined and I can now say that I like turkey, it was so yummy), stuffing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, gravy, a green salad, rolls, and a pumpkin and a pecan pie.  Oh, and olives.  I taught Ellie the proper way of eating olives.

Off of your fingers of course.  Olives are the most nostalgic part of Thanksgiving, and I'm not sure why.  I have very strong memories of putting olives on my fingers with cousins and eating them up.
Clara enjoyed her own thanksgiving feast of milk and more attention than she knew what to do with.
We were also given these crazy wafer cookies, and I couldn't help but post this picture. It is literally a cookie as big as her face.
Happy Thanksgiving indeed!
