I Guess You Could Call It "The First Thanksgiving"...

(Phew! *wipes forehead* that was a long title.)

We stayed home for Thanksgiving for the first time in 3 years. Of course, we invited a few people over for lunch/dessert.

Our church, Brookhills, has been involved in the inner city of Birmingham. As a result, a handful of BH people have moved there. Well, two guys from our church moved into a house and befriended a guy, named Chris, whom they have been helping. T and P were going out of town for Thanksgiving and Chris needed a place to stay.  So, we invited him to stay with us for two nights. Then, The McGuire Family and Mrs. Lori's mom came over along with our friend Victor

Needless to say, we had a houseful!! :)

The festivities began when the guys played a little bit of "Turkey Bowl". 

Chris and Jason....

Dad and Jojo*

(*that is a whole another post for a different time. he's the guy from India that is staying with us for a little while.)

Then, the McGuire's arrived and Sarah and I played a little bit of "camera".  :)

Even Mommy joined in the fun!

Jojo with the turkey and knife!

After that, we all ate some food and hung out.

Jason and Jojo leading us in praise and worship.

Sarah decided to get in on the action...

All in all, we had a good time of food and fellowship!!

 [I can't wait for next year!! :)]
