Happy Thanksgiving

I dag, fejrer mennesker Thanksgiving i Amerika... med kalkun, Amerikansk fodbold, Macys Thanksgiving Dag Parade og borde fylde med familier og venner. Jeg er glad at meddele at Thanksgiving er ikke fejret kun i Amerika.... det har også kommet i Danmark! Kalkunen er i ovnen, grøntsager koger på komfurt, bordet er dækket og æbletærter er klar! Om 2 timer ankommer Thanksgivingmad gæster til vores hus--seksten familiemedlem og venner vil sidde sammen i Herning Denmark, for at fejre hvor taknemmelig vi er. Jeg vil skrive en blog om vores aften sammen, men først, jeg ville at fortælle mine Amerikanske veninde som bor i Scandinavia "GLÆDELIG TAKNEMMELIG DAG" (Ja, jeg dannede dette ord!) fordi jeg er så taknemmelig for deres venskaber--både på interneten og "i ægte liv"!

Today people are celebrating Thanksgiving in America...with turkey, American football, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and tables filled with family and friends. I am happy to announce that Thanksgiving is not only being celebrated in America...it has also come to Denmark! The turkey is in the oven, the vegetables are cooking on the stove, the table is set and the apple pies are ready! In two hours our Thanksgiving day guests will arrive at our house---sixteen friends and family members will sit together in Herning Denmark, to celebrate how thankful we are. I will write a blog about our evening together, but first I want to tell my American friends who live in Scandinavia "HAPPY THANKFUL DAY" (yes, I made that phrase up because Thanksgiving does not exactly translate to Danish!) because I am so thankful for their friendships--both online and in "real" life!

Glædelig Taknemmelig Dag til / Happy Thanksgiving to:

Happy Thanksgiving. I bet your Thanksgiving dinner was amazing and extra fun filled with so many people.

Awwwhhhh. Happy Thankful Day to you too!!

We too had a turkey and "all the fixings". Grandma even taught me all her cooking tricks too. :) We invited some Danish friends over to show off our traditions... They were most amused with Candied Yams (sweet potatoes with brown sugar and roasted marshmallows on top). Who says Marshmallows can't be eaten at dinner! :)

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner with friends and family of Kelli and Mads. We have had a wonderful trip but are ready to head home to Texas. Tomorrow morning we will get on the plane at 645 am and will be home in Dallas by 2 pm. It has been an amazing trip!
