Celebrating the solstice by getting the "lack of a mantle" in order. On chilly days like today I wonder if we maybe should have got a house with a fireplace, but still I am glad for a warm house!
Here's a funny thing: Zack's teacher sent a little gift home for all the classroom volunteers, and although it's just a token, I swear it brought tears to my eyes. I think perhaps I was caught off guard in the midst of this busy Christmas season by someone thinking of me. I was tickled to have my very own candy cane!
Spent our weekend doing things with my mother-in-law's German club. The children's party was Saturday, and one of the gifts they sent home was a foam gingerbread house kit, which gave us something to do when we got home! We also got to hear a beautiful concert given by the German and Swiss clubs, which included Alpenhorns and Yodelers, capped with dinner a German Restaurant. In retrospect I wish I had taken more pictures! Frohliche Weinachten!
