We had 16 total for Thanksgiving dinner. The menu:
Ruby Red Cranberry Salad
Did you know that we have a friend living with us? Well, we do. And his name is Jonathan. I will have to do a whole, separate post about him. But for now you must know that Jonathan is from "Down South" and his parents came up to spend Thanksgiving at our house. His mama made Gumbo and brought it up to share for the meal. She also made the cheesecake - mmm.
The guest list:
The 4 Paynes
Mr. & Mrs. Turner
Don & Dianne (from Evanston Church)
The Addingtons - Dan, Steph & little Aedric (from Evanston Church)
Aaron (Jonathan's schoolmate)
Mary (from Evanston Church)
Mary's roommate Ling and her friend Yuling (both from China)
We had such a wonderful time and SO MUCH food. Everyone ate, had leftovers, and brought a plate of food home with them. And we STILL have leftovers in our fridge!
