Champagne and children bubbly
The last day of the year was very rainy!
I was awakened by the a neighbour´s shutter at 6:30 am.
So I got up and went buying sauces for our raclette in the evening. As I got home my three guys had the first quarrel of the day.
Later the boys played a little bit with their Wii,were watching tv and playing Uno with me.
In the late afternoon we started our raclette. Especially the boys had much fun with it - it was their first raclette. But I think it isn´t the right thing for them because they haven´t the right calmness for such a little longer meal.
They had to go to bed to their normal time and we woke them up at 11:30 pm.
Wednesday 30.12.2009 Day 343
I brought the children to their grandparents in the morning - Know that my younger son will made Maultaschen (pasta squares/swabian pockets) together with his grandfather. Handmade!!!!
So today was my day of holiday - yeah!!
Drinking a cup of café latte and enjoying breakfast calmly!
Used the day for tidying up my sleeping room and sorting documents. It was a cold, wet and rainy day.
We made lunch in our favorite Italian restaurant and I had mussels in wine sauce.
I took no picture today so I´ll share one from our walk on Saturday.
In a way it was a really sad day for me. Whilst we did our last grocery shoppings for New Year´s eve ... I met a colleague of mine who is having bowel cancer. We all know that his prognosis is really bad and that he´s beyond all treatments. I´m fond of him and it was always a pleasure for me to work with him together.
To see him now, sick, cachectic, with grey hair and a thin voice, buying lucky charms for New Year´s eve... it bring tears to my eyes.

Christmas mail from KayJay
I totally forgot to post one of the first christmas mails I got. I´m so awfully sorry Kerri and hope you may forgive me. As I found it in my letter box I was so thrilled. Thanks a lot for this beautiful card. Think we both had funny times chatting together the last months. You are dear to my heart and it was wonderful to met you and your sweet boys personally. Hope we can continue and keep up our friendship.
The day started with rain.
Today we bought a "new" and bigger car. So we were busy with visiting the car dealership and the insurance. We can collect it at the 4th of January.
Whilst I was in the insurance my husband went to the hairdresser with our younger son. During that it began to snow.
I also was in the office and had a talk with my boss. Starting in January I´ll no longer work only two days a week but working again from Monday to Friday.
So I´ll have a lot less time for blogging, scrapping, CT´s, chatting and drinking café latte. But I´ll get more money and with that more independence. I´ll hope that was a good decision.
Monday 28.12.2009 Day 362
One of my younger son´s favorite "games" during the christmas time.
School is out until the 6th of January. But thanks God the holidays of Christmas are over and the grocery stores are open again.
After our grocery shopping we enjoyed hot chocolate and café latte in a small cafe.
Today was a rainy day again.
Sunday 27.12.2009 Day 361
We played a lot during the christmas holidays. Monopoly, Uno and Wii. Most of the time we had fun together as long as one of my three special boys went wild.
