Happy New Year!!
So here we are, spending the last day of 2012 with great friends in Germany! It's like a dream! Speaking of dreams, look what they eat for breakfast:
|Fresh baked roll (of course) with butter and chocolate sprinkles. YES.|
We were able to visit Stefanie at work, which was so exciting! Stefan took Lainie and I, and we even got to go in the NICU. I wanted to cry! Because all newborns make me want to cry and because I have never seen such tiny human beings. And there were even twins! Oh every baby was so adorable I could have just died right there. We saw one born earlier that day, and one that was about 2 months old but still tinier than my babies were. She started off less than a pound. It was really a great experience. I couldn't take any pictures of course. I am certain those parents don't want their adorable tiny babes on some crazy American's blog.
We hung out for awhile and then Brad, Stefan, Philipp and I took a walk.

|Brad and Philipp played football the whole way|
|There is Lambsheim in the distance!|
|The creek right by their house|
|Round one...little pans cook under the grill|
|Cheeses, ham, salami and onions|
|Sausages, tomatoes, little hot dogs|
|The table...all ready! Raw meats to grill on top, lots of choices for the broiled parts|
|A good view of everything cooking!|
|My first one...made with ham, salami, grilled onion, broccoli, cheese|
|Sliced potatoes, corn, grilled onions, cheese|
|Brad's with broccoli, corn, cheese and ham|
The girls tried some cheese! Since they have been eating a bit of milky stuff, they both decided to risk it (and were fine, thank God!!)
|The big Wii Challenge...Wii Party. Manly :)|
Seriously. The strangest thing about Germany so far. I don't get it!!!
|Fireworks ready: check!|
|Champagne ready: check!|
|HAPPY NEW YEAR!! FROHES NEUES JAHR!! (Lea was upstairs feeling safer in a quiet place.) Lainie is NOT drinking champagne. Ok she is. Don't judge me.|
