Busy, busy, busy, as I'm sure everyone else was. Here are a few pictures of our Christmas.
We got to a few Christmas markets in early December. The one in Kaiserslautern is just the right size for an afternoon.
Last week was Katrina's holiday program/party at school. The kids sang about 10 songs, then decorated gingerbread houses.
And then, there was Christmas morning in our jammies and Christmas afternoon in our, um, safety goggles.
School doesn't start back up until January 7. This morning, I scheduled one playdate for Friday, and later today or tomorrow morning, I'll try to line up a few more. I like that we decided on just relaxing at home for a bit, instead of another trip, but Katrina needs social interaction like we need air. Thank goodness a number of her friends are also staying close to home for Christmas. Enough for a different friend to come over probably every day until school starts up. Maybe we can be the ones to give some parents a break...especially the moms with deployed husbands. But it's not really altruistic; parents of only children know that in some cases, taking care of two kids CAN be easier than taking care of one. Let the playdates begin!
