Giving Thanks The Pilgrims Left

Occasionally I am asked if we have Thanksgiving in England. My stock answer is always is the same: We do have Thanksgiving in England. We give thanks those annoying pilgrims left.

Thanksgiving 2008 in Perry

Thanksgiving this year was at my brother-in-law Randy’s home in Perry, Utah. Steven brought an extra turkey to fry. He heated the peanut oil to 350 degrees. When the breast of the turkey reached 170 degrees it was done. It was cooked perfectly. Last year it was burnt.

Thanksgiving In September

Daniel is leaving for the MTC in October and from there to Mongolia for two years. Jill decided to have a Thanksgiving meal for Daniel today because he won’t be with us in November.
