Short and Sweet. {Updated!}

{new photo version!}

Hello!  I've been away for a bit.  A lot of family and friend time over the past three weeks, and every minute of it was happiness.

Glad to be back here in my sweet Stambach, though.  Here's a couple things I wasn't able to write about before we left for Christmas Break.

On Sunday, we went to the coolest Christmas Market.  As always, it was wonderful! This one was extra-awesome, because it was in the middle of the woods.

A friend of ours played in this band...their fingers had to be so cold!!  I should know what these nuts are called, since they're at practically every Christmas Market.

--------------{this next group of pictures was added just recently.  I can't believe I forgot to put them in here!!}----------------------

The food at these Markets is simply amazing.

But I didn't eat this.   

---------{sorry, this blog is wayyy disorganized, but I wanted to share the pictures from another Christmas Market.  A French Christmas Market!  Strassbourg, France}---------

These are the cutest!  Handmade "family members."  You pick which ones most closely resemble your own family, and you have a very unique gift!

This building was decked out!

French pretzels are just as good as German pretzels.

----------{and that concludes the very late Christmas Market insert!}----------

After this, we went home, had plans to sit and watch a movie...but then remembered that we never did a family photo for Christmas cards.  Changed clothes in about 2 minutes, and drove to my favorite photo shoot location.

Well this was not an easy task.  I thought it would be with my wireless remote, but keeping the dogs still...

One good one out of about 30 attempts.  As you can see, the sun was still out in the first photo.

I know, this was insanely brief.  But that's what a blog is for, right?  Sharing life {exciting AND dull} with friends.

More next time, I promise.
