Karynne's Mom here...These are some pics I found on the Santos Mission FB site showing pics of the entire story Karynne was telling me in our e-mail last week...and I thought I'd share them with you along with that note:
|Lots of food...but I didn't see pics of Karynne|
anywhere for a while...
|...until I saw the kitchen crew!|
There she was serving her fellow missionaries by putting
on an American Thanksgiving for them.
|Custom made stuffing. No idea what's supposed to be in it.|
|Watermelon? Well..it's summer here.|
|...but I knew it had to have Rosemary.|
I asked Sister Cabral why she wanted us there at 10:30 if we were only going to start eating at . She said "I don´t know. What is it that you do on Thanksgiving before you eat?" The answer. Nothing! You cook and then you eat. Then you die a little, but you manage to resucetate enough to eat some more and then you laugh at the superbowl commericals and laugh with your cousins and play pranks on your uncle who only just managed to make it to the couch before sleeping ( you know, the one from Portugal... ;) and then you eat some more and play some games until everyone eventually goes home. She was like "Really? You don´t do a big FHE or anything like that?" Well, maybe we will now, but I don´t think anyone ever thought of that before. Haha. So, to have some good entertainment I showed them the Christmas eve game that my grandmother plays with us every Christmas eve. It was such a blast!!! It´s just a pity that the surprise didn´t make it to the end of the game intact.....
|2nd Thanksgiving together....|
Last year we were in the MTC together!
