Thanksgiving was a little different this year. We spent a few days reminiscing over Thanksgivings past - camping at Killbear or Arrowhead (remember the pumpkin pie the chipmunk ate), dinner with the Vandenbergs and Finlaysons, and the last few years dinner with the Mercers. Oh the turkey, the cranberries, the stuffing, the pumpkin pie . . . Then we gave ourselves a shake and said "Let's do it!" We invited a fellow Canadian who is studying here and improvised on the traditional meal. Chicken, stuffing, pumpkin (which in Uganda tastes more like squash), mashed potatoes and brownies for dessert. After several rounds of Dutch Blitz and tea in a Tim Horton's mug we felt that we had made a new Thanksgiving memory. Thanks Hayley for joining us. We truly have so much to be thankful for!
