Nana and Papa

As you have probably guessed from the lack of blogging, we had a wonderful time with Steve's parents these past 10 days. They came here to visit US of course, but also to go to the Christmas Markets that are so fun here in Germany, and we were able to see a lot of them. We would send the boys to school in the morning, and then in the afternoon we would go to a market. The boys did well, and I was thrilled to be seeing a lot of the stuff people had told me about. We have been gone for the past 2 years around Christmas time, so this was a real treat for me. We especially enjoyed the banana-nutella crepes. YUM! Don't be too jealous Tawna and Krista.

Sadly one of the days they were here I dropped my camera and it had these red lines running through all the pictures, so I took very few pics. And Steve's Dad's camera had a lot of the pictures erased off of it.
Last weekend we decided to go to Belgium to see if their Christmas Markets differed a lot from Germany. It was pretty much the same idea, but they did have a lot of different stuff. We were glad we went to see it. I had a great time. It was dang cold there though, and there cold weather is now hitting us here in Darmstadt. It is about 28 degrees here at night. Sooo coooold. Especially with no central heating. But I guess one could always complain about the weather huh?

K, here is a picture of me just to prove that I was there with them. Not my best side I would say.

And then our little Brandon boy. He turned 4 months yesterday although it seems he has been around a lot longer than that. I gave him a cracker to gnaw on tonight, and he enjoyed it. Also, somehow the camera is now fixed. This picture looks great and was taken this evening.

K, I have more to report so stay tuned.

Christmas markets in Germany sound so fun. Maybe better with no kids and no cold, but still fun. I'm glad you got the chance to go to so many and have a good time with Steve's parents.

My main concern is - how do you stay warm in your house? No central heating??? Are you crazy? I remember not having central heating in Argentina, but we were out all day and slept in sleeping bags at night. I remember freezing cold mornings. Are you just as cold?
