"52 Weeks" is a weekly blog carnival that Carin over at "Forever in Blue Jeans" hosts. It's a challenge for us moms to finally get in the picture instead of being the ones that are always taking them. It's been great fun and I appreciate Carin for starting it.
Several weeks ago, Shawn and I took the kids to Munich to check out the Christmas markets, and, more importantly, to see Germany. Shawn is 100% German and I have some German in me as well. Since we're talking about nationalities, I'm also French, Scottish, English, Norwegian and Irish. I know, I'm a mutt. Doesn't that sound bad? That's what people always say when I tell them all of these various nationalities that make me who I am.
We were walking around and buying little things from the market especially little Christmas presents from the kids to each other.
We went to a little town in Germany called Mittenwald that was so quaint and beautiful. Do you see the mountains in the background? It was just beautiful to be there with the snow-covered mountains and charming storefronts. My husband found the cuckoo clock he had intended to buy while visiting. We really look forward to hanging it up when we return to Michigan.
I was sitting in the apartment, kicking back, and relaxing.
This final photo was taken in another town called Rattenberg in Austria. Each year they host a wonderful Advent celebration in their village and people from all around in neighboring towns travel to go there. We were blessed because our apartment was only a 15 minute drive from it. But boy was it cold outside!
I plan on doing a series of posts about our German & Austrian adventures after the New Year. So stay tuned.
Thanks for stopping by.
