When's Thanksgiving?

FIRST.................... you WILL miss me on Thanksgiving??? Apparently since Chile doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving, my companion and I were convinced that Thanksgiving was this week. So to be honest, we ran to the grocery on Thursday to buy food to make Thanksgiving lunch. We thought we were super cute and everything turned out perfect. BUT if now you are insinuating that Thanksgiving is this week, we are going to have to do it all over again. We are laughing so hard at ourselves right now. 


Yup there is all of the beautiful work... one week early. We made mashed potatoes and gravy, deviled eggs, asparagus, sweet carrots, oven baked chicken and potatoes. It was delicious! We even finished it off with the best pie ever made. It was oreo crust with vanilla pudding and bananas and topped with whipped cream. We ate the whole thing in less than 24 hours. 
To make matters even more embarrassing, we even decorated for Christmas by hanging ornaments and and stringing popcorn. We spent the whole time singing Christmas music and reminiscing about the Macy´s Day Parade (which although I havent been home for Thanksgiving in 3 years now, I never have missed the parade) This is just embarrassing. Happy Holidays:)

Well I guess the good news is that "J" has another baptismal date for the 13th of December and has been clean for 2 weeks already. Also we had two great lessons with her grandmother and had a "once" with her aunt and cousin. We are really making progress. One of our investigators also told us that she is going to get a divorce, so that she can marry her boyfriend and she now has a baptismal date for May 2015. Our fast was also greatly answered this week and we met 3 new investigators and 2 new families. It was amazing. But the whole Thanksgiving thing is pretty embarrassing. 

I love you all and will get over the embarrassment at some point. At least nobody else has to know about this mistake except for my companion and I. Love you all. Happy Thanksgiving!
