Thanksgiving tradition

My parents, my family and my twin brother's family ate a traditional Thanksgiving noon dinner at my twin brother's house. The menu included turkey, mashed potatoes with gravy, dressing, carrot dish, lingonberries, cranberries, bread, pumpkin pie and some "Beaujolais-Villages" red Burgundy wine.

  3. Ich freue mich, deine ganze Familie zu sehen. Die Mädchen sind alle so gross und hübsch geworden und deine Eltern sehen immer noch gleich aus wie vor sechs Jahren. Schönes Bild!

    (Dein Telefonanruf von gestern hat mich sehr gefreut.)

  11. Hi Leif and family, Yes, you have much for which to be thankful...everyone looks healthy and happy! You had about the same size gathering as we did. I love the sweatshirt your brother is wearing! Did you let him watch the game? Don't tell him, but, you're not only 9 minutes older, but you're better looking, too. I'M JUST KIDDING!! You're both quite handsome!!

  12. Hey that's a nice family picture to keep. You know what, I have seen many movies with a bunch of folks having turkey. We don't have that tradition here so I really get hungry when I see it and would like to storm in some of those nice houses grab the huge turkey and run away with it under one arm while snatching away a good bite. But then I think this is to thank God and I feel remorse :) And pumpkin pie oh that is a sin!

  13. So nice to see your nice family.
    And the pies in the last post, wow!
    And the church has such simple elegance.

    Todah raba (thanks much) for your comments about my airport posts. The joke is that I have terminal sickness--just gotta have visits to the airport terminal, as often as possible. :)
    On your next visit, please check back in to read some answers to y'all's questions and comments about the airport synagogue.

    Have a good rest of the weekend.

  17. What a heartwarming picture to see at two in the morning. Guess I'll take a look at small Stefan and see whether everything is fine.
    No such a celebration over here in Greece, but a day filled with lessons.
    For you all, a wonderful weekend.

  19. What a lovely family photo, taken from the perfect angle. I guess that's one advantage to having a twin---he takes the photo, and somehow he is still in the photo!
