This year we didn't have a Thanksgiving celebration at the Forever Home since we already had two dinners going at New Day. The first one was with the Foster Home on Thursday. The Forever Home made the stuffing, green beans, and gravy for feast. This gave plenty of opportunity for the older girls to help out with the large quantities we prepared. The dinner was actually for the 45 children who live in or are fostered out by New Day. However, once the children are finished eating, the adults get to clean up all the leftovers. With that in mind, we wanted to make plenty for all to share--after all, it is Thanksgiving!!
The next Thanksgiving feast was on Friday with all of New Day including the school, students, staff and factory etc. We also made a large batch of stuffing for that meal. Thanksgiving just isn't Thanksgiving without stuffing--if you ask me!!
