Thanksgiving… Expat style! (Part 2)

This is going to be a lot shorter than the last Thanksgiving post because, well, I didn’t really take any pictures. I took 1. Seriously, I was so consumed with the food and by the time I remembered that I should take some pictures to document I was entering into my food coma. Then, I woke up from said coma and got a quick group shot before one of the couples left.

But, it’s still worth blogging about because it’s Thanksgiving! After showing San around the town some we came back home and I made some homemade mac ‘n cheese and chocolate chip cookies (homemade as well) and then we taxi’d ourselves on over to the French’s flat where 2 more couples were joining us. Most of us there were American and all of us were appreciative of coming together in a spirit of thankfulness. The food was delicious (again, I’m sorry for no pictures – my stomach took over my brain) and so was the conversation. I met more of Will’s fellow post grad peeps and their significant others and San was there to join in on the fun!

I think the best part is this group shot I got real quickly. It’s the most awkward and awesome picture ever!

This evening added to our best Thanksgiving ever! Everyone is so nice here and inclusive. The French’s have been such wonderful friends to us and I am so grateful for them (the couple on the far right with the baby). We spend several hours a week with them and it’s still not enough! God has blessed us with good people and this Thanksgiving He brought more good people into our lives. We are blessed and I can’t help but give thanks everyday!
