This year, in a stroke of good will, Mr. Masterson invites Davey Bryant over for Thanksgiving dinner. The Masterson kids are appalled; Davey, the biggest bully the kids at Faith Baptist Church have ever seen, is coming to eat at their house! Together, the four Masterson kids (and guests) hatch an anti-Davey campaign to get rid of the pest for good. To add to the mayhem, Mrs. Masterson has been doing a little inviting - and matchmaking - of her own; the new, single youth pastor, Pastor Brian, as well as Erin Thompson, a young widow, and her two daughters will also be joining the festivities. But with three of the four young girls madly in love with Pastor Brian, bringing the pair together may be easier said than done. With falling bowls of mashed potatoes, invisible dogs, turkey costumes, slingshots, and Pilgrims, one thing's for certain - it'll be a Thanksgiving no one will ever forget!

Mashed Potatoes and Davey premiered at the Grace Baptist Christian School in Plymouth, IN in November 2008.
