I can't beleive I've been writing on this blog for over a year now. I feel like Thanksgiving in Germany was just yesterday (see Nov. 2008 post)! Thankfully (haha), this year, we had a whole turkey, not just a giant breast.

I suppose at 30 I could be helping out with more than just pies, but that's what I was assigned this year. And with last year's experience under my belt, I set out and made one pumpkin and one apple pie, both entirely from scratch, crust and all. In Germany they just don't have pre-made pie crust so I had no other choice; and it was actually simpler than I thought. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to take a bit more time with their pie desserts.

Sorry, no pictures of the pies, I'm not that organized, but we do have a few pictures of the family (my aunt, uncle and cousins, Alexandra and Britta). Sadly, Kevin had to work and Merissa is still in Munich, so it was just my parents, Nate and I. On the up side, the weather was PERFECT that day and we enjoyed our traditional walk along West Cliff Drive after our Thanksgiving meal.
