It's All About Family

Thanksgiving isn't really all that important in Guatemala.  Why?  Because they have no clue about pilgrims, the Mayflower, or enduring a hard winter in Massachusetts.  For this reason, the Thanksgiving climate lacks a little something.

Still, Gabby and I did our best to ring in the Holiday appropriately.  We bought a pumpkin pie from the local Mennonite bakery.  We found a can of spray whipped cream.  We said our prayers of Thanksgiving over value meal numbers 1 and 4 at McDonald's.  Heck, nothing compliments a celebration quite like a Cuarto Libre con queso (quarter-pounder with cheese.)

Even though we missed our families tremendously, the best part of the holiday was spending time with our family here.  They are incredibly welcoming and kind.  Thanksgiving night, we arrived back at the house to share a dinner of chicken and rice.  We topped it off with our pumpkin pie.  The family had never seen a spray bottle of whipped cream, so we had everyone tilt their heads back and open their mouths. We came by and sprayed an ample amount in everybody's pie-hole!  A good time was had by all.

We are truly thankful this year for all of our friends and family back home who support us with such sincerity.  Being away from all of you has helped us realize even more how important you are.  May Go bless you all this season.
