Happy Thanksgiving!

 

Even though Koen and I live in Belgium, we still celebrate Thanksgiving every year. This year was very special – my parents were in town! They were able to bring decorations and ingredients with them from America!

Of course Thanksgiving is also all about the delicious food. We prepared the staples and asked everyone to prepare and bring their own traditional American dishes to the dinner – just like we do back home!
