Kida’s school celebrated Heritage Day last Friday. Only a few student’s dressed up in their heritage clothes but almost everyone brought food! I was too busy taking photos and didn’t get the chance to try all the food. Most of the food were American though (rice crispy treats, cinnamon buns, deviled eggs, etc.). Husband and I were not able to find clogs to purchase since the Dutch store we went to was a deli and only had clogs for display. We did get Kida some black licorice as her Dutch food though.
Before the celebration, Kida was given a blank family tree paper to fill in. She was excited to learn that she’s related to Brenda Song. Really, she’s not related to Brenda in anyway, but Kida’s great grandmother’s maiden name is Xiong (spelled differently but it is the same Hmong last name and pronounced the same) which to her is close enough to being related. LOL! She also learned that on her Dutch side, she loves her great grandmother’s first name (on her grandfather’s side), Wilhelmina, and her great grandmother’s maiden name (on her grandmother’s side), Rosenthal, and concluded that her perfect name would be Wilhelmina Rosenthal.
Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving!
