Thanksgiving in Nauvoo

We celebrated Thanksgiving at the Stake Center with 250 other Temple and Site missionaries (& some of their families who were visiting). It was a fun occasion...but not like being home with family :(

We sat at this table with the Footes, the Standifirds (he is a counselor in the Temple presidency) and the Coons...and really fun people!

Part of the program was a Turkey Gobbler contest. These are the participants. The 3 Temple missionaries who competed are in the center with the green John Deere hats. Elder Brady, Elder Allen, and Elder Coons.

After the dinner, we all went to the Visitor's Center for the lighting of the Christmas Tree.

Sister Eichbush and me, before the tree lighting.

It was Beautiful!!

The Nativity Scene in the Visitor's is lifesize!
