We arrived at Danika in Oklahoma

We arrived in Oklahoma safe and sound. It was a nice trip but very cold. But Oklahoma is warm, 57 Fahrenheit that's about 14 Celsius. Our host Danika said it was unusually warm for this time of year, just wait a few days and the weather will get cold again. When we arrived, our host family was making a holiday candy with chocolate and peppermint, called Peppermint Bark. We thought there was some kind of wood product involved but it only looks like birch bark. Hans was pretty hungry and enjoyed the pretzels dipped in white chocolate and peppermint. We got the recipe and hope to make it for our friends back in Germany. We spent most of our day getting to know our host family and resting. After our long rest we decided to get a closer look at the family's Christmas tree and took a long climb to the top. Hans was the first to make it to the top. We are pretty excited about Christmas and can't wait to see what things are in store. Our host Danika keeps talking about running "errands". We like hiking and backpacking but are willing to go "running" with our host if that is what the family is doing.
P.S. Found out "running errands" means, going in and out of stores and family members houses very quickly with a long list of things to do. It looks like a lot of preparations are being made for the Christmas holiday and meals.
