Thanksgiving Celebration 2008

Thanksgiving was celebrated with a crowd of eighteen - Isaac's girlfriend, Allie Blue, and her family joined us along with Neil (from Tulsa, Oklahoma via Cornell) and Victoria (from Chicago, Illinois via Princeton). The day began bright and early with a big breakfast from Dunkin' Donuts. We organized a two-mile Bentley Farm Turkey Trot through the woods. Much work was accomplished to prepare the appetites for the Thanksgiving feast - Luke washed the tractor, Nate and Victoria cut and split wood, Isaac and Allie prepared the turkey...

The feast was outstanding. A post-Thanksgiving walk was enjoyed in the fields before dessert. The afternoon was relaxing as we sang songs and played (a quite dramatic version of) telephone charades and coffee-pot!
