Mckenna and I just got back from a lovely trip to Germany, where I got to see lots of old friends. We stayed with Kerstin, Thomas, and Lasse and met up with many others. We went to German Christmas Markets, got to eat great food (thanks Kerstin!), went sledding, spoke to some English classes, drank Gluhwein, and just had a wonderful time! Here are some of our pics.

Last week we got to go to Venice and Sirmione Italy. We stopped in other towns as well, but got to stay overnight in those two. Venice was fun, but lots and lots of rain. While we were there I celebrated my 30th birthday and have to say I am so thankful for my amazing family and friends, they made it very special for me. Mckenna at more Gelato on this trip than humanly possible,and everytime we passed a Gelato stand she would scream "Happy, Happy!" Happy is her word for icecream. Sam also got a haircut in Venice at an authintic barbershop. It was a fun experience, I think I was more excited than Sam, but it was pretty fun.
Sirmione was like a town in a tourism brochure...amazingly beautiful. I think I took more pictures there in one day than I did of our entire 4 days in Venice! There were amazing Roman Ruins and a huge lake, a castle, and just an overall gorgeous setting.

So here are some pictures of where we have been skiing this last week. Sam is making amazing improvements and is starting to keep up on skis...he misses his snowboard I think. So our ski rental was cheap, we don't have to pay for lift tickets, we get free guides to help improve our skiing, and all we have to pay for is Mckennas daycare. Can't beat that! What an amazing opprotunity we have here! Notice there is one picture that looks like a hole in the snow...well it is! We are skiing on a glacier, so there are cravasses and someone happened to fall into it...a helicopter rescue soon followed...crazy stuff!
