thanksgiving #1

i admit, i'm a little behind on blogging. ok...a lot behind! anyway, on the monday before thanksgiving, laura and i hosted a thanksgiving party for about 23 of our mexican friends. we had turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, green bean casserole, baked macaroni and cheese, broccoli casserole, purple lady (jello thing...dont knock it till you try it. it's amazing!), cranberry sauce, biscuits, corn bread, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, and brownies (because even if they hadn't liked anything else, we knew they LOVE brownies!). we were a lil concerned about trying to cook so much, seeing as how our oven is a lil unreliable to say the least, not to mention incredibly small! but God definitely blessed our oven that day and the entire day went off without a hitch. izzy even seemed to have fun and didn't go too crazy with all the extra people. here is a picture of some of us (several had already left by this point) enjoying the evening:
