Thanksgiving in Buenos Aires!

One of my favorite Thanksgivings ever. The entire day was spent enjoying community here in balmy Buenos Aires. Starting off with an epic football game, that led into cooking, napping, a fine feast, and much to be thankful for. I am so blessed to be a part of this community.

heart friends.

a title reserved for very few. Getting to know Jen has been a beautiful part of my time here in Buenos Aires.

Our turkey dinner had all the fixins. Tina and Megan are makin it happen in the kitchen at the Forcatto's.

Thanksgiving! Futbol Norteamericano

An epic game of football was played to start off the Thanksgiving spirit. We had such a blast!

Tina got tackled*

The most afraid of getting tackled in Thanksgiving football game: tina, tina from Yale, gets bulldozered by Jer the bear, and eats some major dirt clod. Funny thing is, Jer was on Tina's team.

*No Tinas were actually re-wounded in the reenactment of this scene.

Epic Interception

The final play of the game (reinacted for photo).
My team was down, 2 touchdowns to 3. Megan wanted to end the game doubling our score. But, out of nowhere, came Felix with the interception running up field for the touchdown.
The game ends, 3 to 3. A happily ever after sort of Thanksgiving.
