Happy New Year!

It was just the two of us this year (Elora was asleep), and when it came time to welcome in 2010, we kept it simple: some champagne and a kiss. :) Blessings and joy to you all! Happy New Year!

Photo Session Highlights

Christmas Markets, Christmas Trees and Christmas Decorations.

The Saturday after Thanksgiving, Elora and I went with Peguy and Neil, and Neil's Mom, Angela, to the Christmas markets in Ludwigsburg and Stuttgart. It was a blast!! There was all kinds of great stuff, and I managed to score a few Christmas presents.

Then, that Sunday, Brandon and I picked up a Christmas tree because I couldn't stand not decorating for Christmas. Never mind that we're going to be away from home over Christmas, we're here now. At least the tree is artificial, so I won't have to worry about dealing with a dead tree when we get back. I just hope that Han doesn't knock it over while we're gone.

And, here are some of the other decorations around the house:
