Ho ho ho!

We attended the Consulate's children's party this year and made an ornament and decroated cookies. Santa was, of course, the big hit of the day!

Robin Hood with a Queenly Presence

Liam's school put on a fabulous play this evening - the story of Robin Hood set to the music of Queen. Liam played the part of a Royal Guard. A wonderful evening, made more memorable, perhaps, by the fact that the school served beer to the parents before AND after the show (it IS the German school, after all....).

Happy Thanksgiving...and St. Martin's Day...

Had a quiet but very nice Thanksgiving this year (compared to last year's events, ANYTHING would have been better, of course. Small turkey dinner with new friend and colleague Cathleen, and then headed off to school for the St. Martin's Day lantern festival. Liam made a lantern and paraded around the school garden and then ate sweetbread in the shape of the Saint himself.
