I have to admit that reading all of these posts about the long Thanksgiving weekend was making me a bit nostalgic and definitely craving the turkey with all of the fixin's (trying to make sure I don't forget my Southern ).
Luckily though, this year I didn't have to do without! The American community in Clermont put on a huge Thanksgiving lunch on Sunday and for the first time we were there to celebrate. There were over 120 people in attendance so it was quite the event, which was held at the local international school.
I was so excited since this would be Nathan's first Thanksgiving, definitely not traditional but first Thanksgiving nonetheless.
So while Cornel and I dined on this delicious feast....
At least he looked cute for the occasion right? He did however make five separate trips to the dessert table. He had his fill of madeleines (cookies) and picked off his fair share of strawberries from the various cakes and tarts. There is truly no denying that he is my son!
Even though it was unconventional, it was amazing to spend an afternoon eating turkey and being thankful for my amazing family and our wonderful life in France!
