My chinese teacher had us write down some things we wanted to learn in chinese for Thanksgiving and when she gave me back my paper with the chinese pinyin and characters on it, it was different from what I wrote so could you please tell me what this says exactly I tried a translator but it didn’t work out……..

*Different tones*

gei (up and down tone) baba : (falling tone)

xie (falling) xie (falling) ni (up and down) zong (up and down) zai (falling) na (falling) li (up and down) bang (flat) wo! (Up and down)

kan (falling) lu (falling) xiang (falling)de (none) shi (rising) hou (falling) gen (flat) wo (up and down) yi (falling) qi (up and down) xiao! (falling)

xie (falling) xie (falling) ni (up and down) hua (flat) shi (rising) jian (flat) gen (flat) wo (up and down) yi (falling) qi (up and down) kan (falling) jie (rising) mu (falling) he (rising) zuo (falling) yun (falling) dong! (falling)

*Without tones*

gei baba:
xie xie ni zong zai na li bang wo!
kan lu xiang de shi hou gen wo yi qi xiao!
xie xie ni hua shi jian gen wo yi qi!
kan jie mu he zuo yun dong!
