Even though the New Zealanders don't celebrate Thanksgiving the American Senior Couples do.  Twelve of the Senior Couples from the North Island gather at the Institute Building for Thanksgiving which included turkey (cost $85.00), mashed potatoes, green salad and jello salad with the jello from America, rolls, and pumpkin pies (the canned pumpkin was also from the United States).  It was held the day after Thanksgiving which was technically Thanksgiving in the United States.  It is always nice to remember the traditional holidays.

All of our children got together at Kevin and Jeanette's, so we had the opportunity of use Skype to see all of them also celebrating Thanksgiving together.  We are indeed thankful for the 4 wonderful children we have been blessed with and the fantastic spouses they have married.  We are also blessed with 9 super cute grandchildren and look forward to meeting the two youngest (Miles and Bethany) when we return the end of February.
