Happy Thanksgiving!

This past Sunday, we celebrated Thanksgiving with our neighbors.  We are so thankful to live next to such wonderful people!!  Enjoy the photos from our celebration!

I’m still wondering how Larry got the turkey to fit in the oven…

Our neighbors from Australia made Lamingtons, a traditional Australian cake covered in chocolate and coconut.  Don’t they look cool!?  They were quickly consumed and the reviewers gave them 5 stars!

Don’t forget the pumpkin cheesecake…

This photo is a little fuzzy (oops!), but I wanted to show you the crew…

Baby Sophia, Larry, Rieko, Nico, Yee, Paula, Pei, Shawn, Beth

We are looking forward to the next celebration!

To all of our family and friends…we hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Would someone please eat something with fresh cranberries in it for me?  Fresh cranberries are non-existent in Tokyo!  Maybe they’ll still be in the stores when we are in the U.S. for Christmas and I can get my fill in a few weeks!  🙂

Some of the other strange things that are ‘missing’ when you’re in a foreign country for Thanksgiving include: the buzz in the grocery store of people picking up last minute items, looking through 10 inches of “Day After Thanksgiving Sale Ads” that are stuffed in the newspaper, watching A Christmas Story and It’s a Wonderful Life, football (of course!), watching the local news coverage of all the crazy people who slept outside their favorite store in order to buy a computer for $3.99…the list goes on…

One more thing…

What would Thanksgiving be without A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving?  Thanks to YouTube, Charlie Brown can still make his way to Tokyo!  (The audio and motion are out of sync, but it’s still good to watch a classic!!

Have a great day!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you both also!

    When are you coming “home” next? I’d love to take you out for coffee, or lunch or something.

    Miss you!

    That looks like a marvelous feast! And that is the biggest turkey I’ve ever seen! Cheers to leftovers! 🙂

    The turkey was a normal size…the ovens in Japan are just really small (if you’re lucky to even have one!).

    For the record, I taught Larry (Frank) everything he knows about cooking a turkey.

    You taught him well…”he” (Larry/Frank/I.don’t.know.what.to call.him.anymore) knows how to cook up a mean turkey!! 🙂
