Today, is still Holiday here......



Today is still holiday here, they called it 2nd Christmas day.

It is nice, we celebrated 3 days xmas here.
Dec. 24, 25, and 26, It is a good idea, we can share together with our family,


In-laws with husband side, our own family and Wife side.


For my side, My Family is not here, so we stay only in the house,

Do something that we can make our time worthful and interesting, like what I do now, facing at the PC…lol


After we heard Mass last Dec. 24, we spent our xmas eve at my MIL, together with families of Bernie’s 2 sisters. “The same procedure in every year.”


Here is our family.



Before opening the gifts, the kids has an entertainment, they show something like an act or music, poems or anything.

Please view our pics. during xmas eve by my MIL…...My Webshot album


From MIL law, we went directly at home, while Sascha n Kim was eager to open their gifts from us too.


Here are my Kids, they are so very happy of their gifts from their Papa.




Kids with their Xmas Gifts


Dec. 25, we celebrated alone, my Family only, we celebrated it with harmony and I am very happy that I saw and feel the closeness of my own family,


Together with the Kids and my husband, “THIS IS MY SPECIAL GIFT”.

I do not need any kind of APPLE….even though One Touch or Manual, flat or big….lol


I cooked only Rinderbraten, with Red cabbage and Cooked potatoes.

These are our favourite German foods.




Christmas at Home




Today, nothing to do, after our lunch, here I have time to Post our happenings last xmas. Hope you are not bored of our Pics


I am fun of pics. taken, any kind of actions, for me this is the best "Remembrance of the Happenings that Happen, that never happen again."


Hope you enjoy our pics. too, our journey here.



Have a nice Tuesday to all………………….by the way, presently there is snow here,
but not too heavy, the temperature here is only 0 grad.

VK, I always enjoy your post...you make such nice slide shows of your pictures. I'm trying to learn from you...but slide shows takes lots of patience, which I apparently do not have.

Thank you for sharing V!

Dear Vicki, you have such nice pictures in here. I tried playing your video but I couldnt and it took me to your photo album!! he he. I guess when kids get "grown" they don't get as excited as they use to when they were younger. Before they would laugh and smile and jump for joy when they get such nice presents! Wishing you all a very Happy New Year filled with continued happiness, good health, and prosperity!!
