Boarding the Alps

Couldnt have asked for a more BEAUTIFUL day!! We got there around was PACKED!

The beautiful Alps

This is where I waited, so the boys could go do a run without having to wait for me...

This is around 4pm after a great day on the Alps. Im holding my wrist cause Robin accidentally hit it when jumping on me.

of course, it wouldnt be an adventure if I didnt hurt myself... After I FINALLY started getting comfortable, I biffed it really bad, and tried to catch myself with my hands.... and my right wrist got the worst of it...

Schlitten fahren

Today was a beautiful day!! We decided to go Schlitten fahren (sledding). It was fun and scary!! We shared a sled, and we FLEW down the mountain. We got sprayed with TONS of snow in our faces from trying to stear and slow down! At many points I couldnt see anything! It was scary fun! I tried to take some pix going down, but it wasnt possible... so here are some before and after pix.

My first Christmas in Germany

Here in Germany, they celebrate Christmas on the 24th. The Christ child brings the presents after you eat dinner, and sing some christmas carols. Usually, the majority of the family will distract the kids while someone puts out all the presents. It was quite fun to watch Leo! He was SO hyper from the moment we got there around 3pm till about 11pm. It was a neat experience. All though, it hit me really hard how much I miss my family! I was doing just fine till Christmas came and went without the crazyness of my family. are some pix of my First Christams in Germany.

trying to keep Leo occupied while we waited for the "Christ Child" to come

playing outside in the snow so the "Christ Child" can come

we were just told that the "Christ Child" came. He was SO excited, he was already up the stairs before we were in the front door.

Robin and Leo in his favorite present.....from "Robin". Robin was so excited to get him that, though Leo thinks its from the "Christ Child"

I made a new best friend. At first he wasnt quite sure what to think. But by the end of the night, he wouldnt leave my side. I got LOTS of hugs, a few kisses (on the cheek), lots of cuddles..... Robin was getting a little jealous.... ;-)

Ulm Christmas Market

I went to the Ulm Christmas Market with my friends since Robin was stuck in Dusseldorf because of the snow. He picked me up after he got a rental car in Stuttgard. Here are some pix of the Market.

Here are some pix of the snow we got. I was having fun taking pictures. While I was taking pix of the snow, a guy from the paper took a picture of me taking a picture of the snow.

Robins car and our street


bredl- its pretty cool, this store made their windows an advent calander. everynight at 5, there would be an angel opening the window. Neat idea!
