Santa Claus was here
It was a rainy Sunday. But the kids were very happy with the contents of their Santa Claus boots.
In Germany it is a tradition that Santa Claus is coming in the night from the 5th to the 6th December - to fill the boots with sweets and little presents.
After children´s church and lunch we played many times "Kakerlaken-Salat" and "Kakerlaken-Suppe". A really funny game - sure you´ll like it, too!!
So we had a lazy Sunday with some minutes of snuggling on the couch.

We visted our christmas market in town. Then my husband did the grocery shopping and I went to the swimming bath with my younger son - for a christmas swimming competition.
It wasn´t really his day - after a week with stomachache - so he made "only" the
4.place in breast stroke, the 2.place (silver medal) with his relay team in freestyle, the 4.place in back stroke and the 3.place in freestyle.
My elder son wasn´t allowed to start because of his fever and bronchitis.
It was a cold day with 1°C degrees below zero in the morning and later in the day wet.
