While the games happened in the family room, Sister Hansen, Maddie, Sophie and I were getting our Thanksgiving Feast ready in the kitchen. The three Hansen ladies had made 5 beautiful pies last night and President Hansen made cornbread dressing and horseradish green beans. I think he also was responsible for the turkey this morning. My contribution was pretzel salad, pea salad, mashed potatoes and pumpkin rolls.

It's been wonderful for Sister Hansen to have family here. Three years is a long time to be away.

All in all, it was a very pleasant Thanksgiving Day. If you can't be with your family then there's no one better to be with than Missionaries!
