Thanksgiving Eve Post from Ann's blog

We’ve spent much of the day doing “Transfer Planning” or figuring out where everyone needs to go when the next group arrives on December 1st.  We actually have 2 transfer days in December, one on the 1st and one on the 18th for those who need to be home for the beginning of winter semester.
So we are spending hours staring at the transfer board, seeking inspiration and combinations and places that will be best for each missionary.  It’s like playing chess frontwards and backwards and side to side with a dozen variables with each piece!  Pretty fun but not very easy.
In between these meetings, we went to a lesson with the APs, to the office, picked up a batch of Christmas pass along cards from the printers, and I made a couple of pots of soup and President and Elder Carter made some pecan bars for tonight.   2015-11-25 Thanksgiving Eve (3).JPG 2015-11-25 Thanksgiving Eve (4).JPG
(Ann's blog) A couple of weeks ago at church I noticed that no one was signing up to feed the missionaries in that ward on the night before Thanksgiving, so I grabbed that dinner appointment, thinking I could easily give a mom a break on that evening.  Then I thought there might be others who don’t have a dinner appointment for tonight, we invited any over who might need a place to go.  Tonight we had some of these local missionaries drop by for soup and treats after their evening work was completed.  It was fun. Here are a few photos from our holiday evening:
