Hi all! I thought i'd write a blog rather than trying to update in thread posts. This way I can include pictures!
I had a wonderful hanukkah with Scott this year. We did 8 days of presents. I got gardening stuff mostly, which is perfect. I gave Scott silly gifts and stuff for his office.
I also got a sewing machine. I made a skirt and dress. This is attempt two of the dress, not he best picture of me but hey, we're forgiving here on sparkpeople. I'm posting this for Carol who I'm hoping I can teach me to sew!
Here is a picture of my dog Kuma in his christmas collar. I love this!
I then went to Luxembourg on the 20th. I visited a friend of mine from collage and it was great!
I then made my way to Germany for Christmas. Many of you, I met when I was an Au Pair. I started on Spark People during that time. For those of you who don't know, I spent one year as a nanny for three kids. The father is a Lutheran minister and the mother is a doctor. For Christmas I went to 5 church services! That's a lot for anyone. The kids were in all of them and it was great to see them doing kids things!
Here is the church on Christmas eve.
Traditional Christmas trees have candles on them.
Presents are opened on Christmas eve. It was great to spend my third Christmas there (2006 and 2008). I really know the traditions now.
We went to a few art exhibitions and toured a cute town on Christmas day. It was great.
That is all for now!
