Thanksgiving 2015

American Thanksgiving in Germany has been kind unique the last two years. With our kids in German Schule, we don't get a long weekend, and hubby was "on a business trip" last year.  It's not that we're not thankful, and it's not that we didn't have anything to do.  It just truly doesn't feel quite like Thanksgiving when we have to set our alarms to get up and get ready to go to school. 

Nevertheless, we enjoyed ourselves immensely at the Chapel's dinner yesterday, and at the temporary ice rink downtown today after school. We needed a warm beverage, so walked a bit further to the Weihnachts Markt and grabbed a few more mugs as souveniers--filled with the most delicious hot chocolate ever!  Most importantly, we ate leftover pumpkin pie for breakfast today. 

We're standing at the foot of this HUGE pyramid... below it is the warm beverage bar.
