I hated for Thanksgiving to come...because that meant our visit with Matt and Brenna was coming to a close. It was so much fun to have them both here and spend time with them as our newly married family members. We love Brenna and she and Matt make such a great little family of their own. We know it was difficult to work us into their busy schedules but,oh....how we enjoyed being with them. Our Turkey dinner was great with all the trimmings, potatoes, gravy, yams(camotes in Spanish)green bean casserole (ejote in Spanish), rolls, fruit salad and pumpkin and apple pies. We fed 6 hungry missionaries who were craving a home-cooked Thanksgiving Dinner. We shared our thoughts of gratitude and enjoyed one another's company. Dinner guests included Elders Schow and Hatton, Elders Verdeja and Sherman, Elders Salazar and Maxfield. We were expecting Elder Granillo as well but he was not able to join us. Elder Granillo is part of the December Generation but was interviewed early on Thanksgiving Day and his parents were here to pick him up. He needed to be released a bit early to attend school. We will miss Elder Granillo, his calming influence and steady, faithful service.
