Happy Thanksgiving

What a beautiful sunny morning walking into the main lodge this morning for breakfast

We enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner at Helen's (the fine dining restaurant at 7 Springs).It was so beautiful inside. The fire was roaring, they were decorated for Christmas and we saw all our favorite wait staff that we closed down the bar with last night!! They treated us to a round of drinks and also a TO DIE for piece of chocolate cake.

The student chef carving our own personal turkey

a view of the extravaganza of food that was brought to our table. Anything we didn't eat, came home with us. The TO GO box was as big as our table. We will have leftovers for a week!! The food included:
  • turkey
  • mashed potatoes
  • sweet potatoes
  • gravy
  • crab imperial
  • salad
  • rolls
  • green beans
  • breaded cauliflower
  • 3 types of stuffing (sausage, portabello and pine nut)
  • ham
  • homemade noodles

Then...we each had desert. Todd had pumpkin pie and I had apple pie with vanilla ice cream. We enjoyed a bottle of Ferari Chardonnay and I had an Earl Grey tea with desert. It was heavenly....but we are soooo stuffed now!!

This year, we are both very thankful to be nearing the completion of our dossier to China. We meet with our social worker next week to review our home study, and we are in the process of certifying and authenticating our documents. I am also waiting for my police clearance for child abuse from the UK. We one step closer each day, and that is something we are both VERY thankful for!!

Happy Thanksgiving.... if 'Winston' our Old English Sheep Dog would just PASS the leather leash he ate this morning while we were at breakfast....we would be even more thankful!! I think it's going to be a very LONG night....
