Saturday Thanksgiving...

This year we got together with three other American families and had a giant dinner. :) 9 adults and 12 kids... ages: 12, 10, 8, 6, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2.

I like the part where there are four two-year olds. :) We should have taken a group picture... :(

It was actually a pretty calm event thanks to some movies, fun toys to play with and a few iPhones.

...and no holiday is complete without a sick child. Poor Scotty was up this year. He didn't feel well in the morning and we thought we would skip the entire event but towards the afternoon he perked up and went about the rest of the day/weekend without any "yuckies".

Here is Andrea eating chips out of his "yucky" bowl. :) Good thing he didn't use it... it was also her hat earlier in the day.
It was good to have a bunch of Americans to hang out and have fun with. I'm thankful I'm not alone in this big crazy foreign country. :)

Hey Grandma! I almost forgot to put the evaporated milk in the pumpkin pie!!!

Poor SCOTTY! He really looks sick! I do hope he is better now?!
Were you in your house at Thanksgiving???
Yes, it is nice to have some people around understanding what you are going through :) .

I can't write a comment to the latest text. Sweet Sierra on a photo is there instead :) .
First nothing new at all here and then TONS of new information :) . To me (but I agree, I am not American) those markets seem to be a good (but very cold) alternative to normal shopping. It looks charming and tasty and fun. Not Black Friday, but at least something. Hugs!
