|Waiting for the parade to start!|
Since we were near the end of the parade, right before Macy's, the parade members sometimes had to rush past us in order to get to the star on time. Our favorite part of the parade was watching the marching bands sprint past us, their tubas and drums bouncing up and down. The people holding the balloons were also quite amusing when they ran, especially the people who weren't in the best shape and were left straggling behind. I was thankful that if we couldn't hear anything, we at least got some entertainment!

Colleen assigned Carol the task of carving
the turkey, so Colleen found a YouTube instruction video for her to watch. I had the best time watching the video and the observing the turkey cutting! We sat down to a delicious dinner of carrot ginger soup, turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes with maple syrup, green beans, and homemade biscuits and apple butter. Yum! I got to Skype my family before dessert, which made not being home a little better. Dessert was an apple crumble pie with caramel sauce from Cousin John's bakery in the Slope. Delicious ending to a perfect day! So, so thankful for wonderful friends who made my first Thanksgiving away from home a very joyous occasion.
