Our second Thanksgiving was sponsored by Johns Hopkins SAIS and it was lovely. The picture above shows the auditorium filled with tables and chairs...and the aluminium balls on the tables which kept the turkeys warm. Just moments after I took this picture, floods of students, teachers and some of their families filled in the chairs.
Taryn tasted the real deal pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes, turkey, yams/squash and rolls all within the past two days of Thanksgiving dinner. She loved Mom's yum yum yams- a must to make every year in my family.
Having sat at the end of the table to accommodate Taryn's high chair, Tyson became the official Turkey carver. He was nervous, having never carved a turkey in his life, but with a few pointers here and there, Tyson served up the yummy turkey to our half of the table. I was proud and he wished he had his dad's electric knife.
Besides the turkey, everything was made by the students including cranberry sauce, "yams" (I had to use squash and it still tasted delicious!), gravy, vegetables, salads, macaroni and cheese etc...
It was a great night and we loved every minute of being with the SAIS community to celebrate this great American Holiday. I'm thankful for all the hard work put into making this night possible and for the joy we had walking home singing Christmas carols with the girls that live above us.
