That's how Mason says it anyway. You can tell my Dad is on vacation because he hounds me all day about not updating the blog. He gets upset when I post pictures on Facebook, because well Daddy doesn't do the FB. :) So here you go Daddy! We had a wonderful Christmas indeed! After some aircraft troubles, cancelations and delays, Dave made it home to Germany at lunchtime on Christmas! The kids have just been thrilled to have him home, poor Dave though is having to play catch up with the jet lag now. We are hoping to do some Euro-travel during our break, if the weather stays nice. We got a couple feet of snow the other day and seems to keep on coming. Santa knew that Daddy was going to be arriving late on Christmas so he scheduled his visit later on Christmas Day so Dave could be there, which I thought was very nice of him. I made a wonderful Christmas lunch/dinner that actually all tasted yummy! The kids were spoiled, like always, by both sets of Grandparents. Our house looks like a toy store disaster right now, but thats ok. Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!

When mommies have too much homework to do and aren't watching little boys like they should be....meanwhile, Emma watched him the whole time and never once told on him until she saw the prize inside the egg. Mason swiped a Kinderegg from fridge while I was in school mode. He did come tell me because if you know Mason, you know he doesn't like to be dirty at all! :)

I am horrible, I know that. I won't even give excuses about school work, Dave being gone, strep and pink eye, I promise. :) We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with some really great friends last week. I hope you all had a good Turkey Day as well! Christmas markets have consumed me here in Germany and I am trying to attend all the ones nearby to get a collectors beer/gluwein mug from them. Great goals I have in life! We have also started some new Christmas traditions that I wanted to share! We are doing the 25 books of Christmas, where the kids get to unwrap a book each night in December and we read it before bed! I also made a huge advent calendar with some help from my Momma! She sent me the boxes and uber cute scrap-booking paper for them! The kids were so excited to see little chocolates inside the box tonight! Advent is huge in Europe so we even made an advent wreath like the ones the kids light at school! Germany is amazing at Christmas, it really makes up for the homesickness! Miss and love you all!
