Unit Holiday Party. And probably the last year Little Brother will want to sit on Santa's lap.
We were given the makings to this Gingerbread Nativity from our friends. Our elves really couldn't wait to decorate it.
I used my new Silhouette Cameo to make some decorations.
Hubby's birthday was a FULL one. He had a teambuilding event (Go Kart Racing), Big Brother had a Christmas Concert at the Evangelischer Kirche, and THEN we got to do cake/gifts...
Besides the Vocal concert on Hubby's birthday, Big Brother had other musical pursuits this month: Piano Recital and Handbell Choir performance.
Here he is with his piano teacher:
Here is the video of his Christmas Piano Recital song
Here is a video one of his Handbell Choir songs
A quiet moment: Friday morning Frühstück for us (after the boys are dropped off at Grundschule). The pottery is leftover presents on the table from the Birthday party the night before. It was too pretty to move.
We had some fun with the Children's Choir (the Joyful Noisemakers) singing "Go Tell it on the Mountain." Our soloists and backup singers did great! We then had a Birthday Party for Jesus in the fellowship hall...
Now that it's break time, we have a list of "fun stuff to do" as a family. Some of the things are Thermalbad, "Brawnees," New Star Wars "Move", Museum, Tobolino... I'm sure we'll add in a few more.
One of the most beautiful Christmas Markets we've been to is right here, where we live. The kids don't LOVE Christmas Markets, so they humored us and let us drag them downtown on a Tuesday night. We had a great time, and their favorite part was getting Lego-shaped chocolate, and drinking hot chocolate.
