What an incredible day!! Here is a sneak peak of the evening:
|It's our Anne!!!!!|
We walked on a trail next to a very fast river that has a dam.
There are woods surrounding the river and trail. We saw a few others out running and walking dogs. It would have been soooo pretty in the summer!
|It was very windy so I have a moustache|
|Indian grass? In Germany? lol|
Somewhere along the way, I dropped the camera case. So we had to backtrack a bit. What a dork I am.
We got to the part of the trail that is right near our house, and discovered the most adorable chapel! Right there, open, candles lit, a book to sign and say what you thank God for. It was so charming! (gotta come up with new words for German stuff. Charming and quaint are getting over used by me.)
|Inside, with candles lit|
|A Christmassy decoration on the altar|
|The outside...we noticed tonight that it's lit up on the outside at night with Christmas lights|
We walked back down our street and I then lost my hat. Brad was nice enough to go get it for me. I love that guy.
|Our street...we live way down at the other end. This street is actual size.|
|12 hours later and our house STILL smells like sauerkraut.|
|You know you always wanted one.|
|Look closely...they have unusual guests visiting baby Jesus!|
|Pretty tree with many homemade ornaments, 100 year old ornaments and real candles!|
We had a really good dinner of homemade sweet potato soup and some pickled and raw veggies, cheese and bread. Then we went to church where Ursula's choir was singing. It was a really cool service.
Churches are generally not heated in the winter. We were cold, but had our coats of course. Even the choirs and kids in the service had on coats and hats! It was unusual to see this. There were tealight candles placed in precarious places and Lainie spilled some hot wax on her hand, of course. *sigh* She is fine :)
We went back and played another game, talked some more and said our goodbyes. We can't wait to hang out with the Miller's again!! Such a great day!!!
|What a great family!!|
