First we had some breakfast and then went out to the town square for a walk.
|Blackberry scones, fresh fruit, and cream|

|Walking along High Street|
|An old historic house with a lovely front door|
|There were still a few fall leaves hanging on|
When we got back home, we started the preparations. Joel made delicious crackers with goat cheese, green onion, and jalapeño jelly.
Joel and Elda made the stuffing, which was so good!
And Joel, Elda, and Rick worked on the Turkey while Diane, Stephen, and I worked on desserts, green beans, and mashed potatoes.
|It looked so gross...|
|Diane peeling apples for our mini apple|
|Our table settings|
|Ready to eat!|

|A delicious meal: apple cider baked turkey, cranberry sauce, |
stuffing, lemon parmesan green beans, rosemary mashed
potatoes, and sweet rolls
We had fun showing everyone around that weekend. We took them to tour MVNU's campus and in the chapel - I love the windows in there.
We also took them to the Easton mall in Columbus.
We feel so blessed to have had family come this Thanksgiving, and we're really looking forward to seeing everyone again at Christmas.
