Thanksgiving dinner was spent with a lot of friends. We're so lucky to have good friends here in PR. I planned a little dinner for all the students/anyone at the church. It was a huge sucess, and by huge success I mean the food was GREAT! I was worried that there wouldn't be enough food and there was more than enough food. Lots of left overs for everyone to take home! I ended up making the turkey. It seems that no one else really wanted that responsibilty. But it wasn't so bad, infact it ended up being one of the easiest things to make. I made the rub the night before and put it all over the turkey then in the morning got up and put the turkey in the oven to cook before we left for the game. Easy!! However, my car smelt like rotten flesh for the following weeks! While transporting the turkey from the store to my house the juices leaked all over the carpet! Worst thing to have to clean up! Next time I will be prepared and take a garbage bag with me!!

All the food! It was one long table!

The kiddie table. We had cupcake decorating for the kids. Afton skipped "sprinkling" and went straight to drinking the sprinkle.

Once again no family picture. But atleast we have one of us together. Our 6th Thanksgiving together! That went fast!

And miss messy mouth. Somethings never change!

The cupcake table turned war zone. Of course the majority of the mess was under the table!
Conveniently the closet that all the cleaning supplies were in was the one closet we did not have a key for. We had to get pretty creative to clean up after our dinner. We had a great dinner and feel so blessed to be here in Puerto Rico, the island of enchantment.
