Since moving to Aberdeen last year, we have been so blessed by the Aberdeen Women's Fellowship. The ladies of this group welcomed us and have helped us settle into our new home in Scotland. This last year I joined the leadership team and have enjoyed helping in the planning and execution as we welcomed new families this fall.
This weekend we celebrated our AWF American-style Thanksgiving dinner, as many of the families here in Aberdeen are expats from the US and Canada. What a great time!
Here are a few pictures from out time together. The rest of the photos on are Facebook.
Rachel was the mastermind behind out celebration event. I love planning events with her. She is so low stress and has such wonderful ideas! Lovely!
For the last several events, Rachel has drawn a fun mural for the kids to color, including all their favorite cartoon characters. The kids always look forward to these wonderful pictures.
We had a bunch of little tables and chairs for the kids. They loved sitting in their own little eating area. I was amazed and surprised at how much food Joshua and Abigail ate.
Joshua enjoyed the paper tablecloths and drew wonderful pictures after dinner. We also used all our Halloween pumpkins as decorations. The kids loved pointing out their pumpkin to everyone.
Amazing food, wonderful fellowship, lots of fun! Happy Thanksgiving!
