Thanksgiving 2015

So, two weeks later, and I am finally back (thanks Heather!) to tell you about how Thanksgiving went!

In short, it went great.  The food was delicious, and the company was fantastic, but the weekend, for me at least, was a bit tainted with stress of my looming oral exam.  Theo didn’t sleep as well as he normally would (probably due to the fact that he was super excited that his cousins were there), but besides that, everything went smoothly!  Dinner prep was only a bit stressful at the end because the turkey was finished a bit early, so there was a rush on the sides, but everything got done, was delicious, and well-received.

A travel-sized hair straightener (with an American plug, so it couldn’t be used) was the star of the weekend:

And one of the things I was most proud of was the fact that when I made applesauce, I peeled every. Single. Apple. In one long peel!

Unfortunately, now that I have a phone that takes acceptable pictures, we hardly ever bring out the big camera (especially if we travel). Equally unfortunately, it’s getting dark ever so early in Denmark now, which means that most of the pictures I take end up grainy, blurry, or a combination of the two, but I promised, and they’ll have to suffice!
