Because of poor planning or I might say no planning for cooking prior to Thursday due to busyness; I got up at 6:00 to start preparing.  I needed to get the rolls and pie done before the turkey would go into the oven.  I am happy to say, it all came together even being able to work out on the treadmill.
The turkey fell apart and Dell learned a new way to carve it.  
We invited the Spanish speaking missionaries in the Camarillo zone and Ventura zone to dinner if they didn't get an invitation.  We also invited the assistants and had 8 missionaries for dinner.
Sister Felix, Hermanas Hemingway, Peterson, Griffes, Ricks, Elders Ruby, Young, Taufatofua, Turley
Last year I inserted a question that had been typed on a piece of paper wrapped in foil then inserted in the dough of the roll.  I did it again this year.  After eating before dessert everyone shared their question. It was received very well and we had good discussion.  It was good to rest a bit before pie.  The missionaries don't have hours to sit around before having dessert because they need to be out doing THE work; although the little break between was appreciated.
Hermana Ricks' mother sent her decorations and she brought them over.  They wanted President to put on the turkey legs but I did it instead.
It was a wonderful time spending it with missionaries.  
We were very happy to have been able to see almost all of the family through skype or face time.  It's a blessing to us to be able to see and talk with our great family!
At MLC on Tuesday we included discussing "The Family -- A Proclamation to the World"
Part of our presentation included pictures of us and our family.  We are so grateful for the family we have (and it continues to grow).
Hermanas Ricks and Griffes are practicing for our Christmas Devotional.  Our theme is focused on Angels.  I've asked Hermana Ricks to accompany one of the Elders and three Hermanas as they sing
 "Angles Among Us." Tuesday one of the members who has produced different projects is helping record the music with the missionaries and then will put together video and pictures of missionaries that I'm giving him.  We are so excited!
