Staff Christmas Party - Silent Night


I love this time of year! Singing Stille Nacht in German here in Austria where the song was birthed makes for such a beautiful and meaningful time. Our staff is singing it here and I get teary eyed every time. We will always remember these Christmases spent here in Austria.
Frohe Weihnachten!

Smoothie boys


My boys love Smoothies! It's a great way to get good vitamins in them that they wouldn't normally eat. I know I've posted about them before... but here's our Christmas smoothie!
Did you know you can put spinach in the smoothie and you cannot taste it at all?! Seriously, it only makes the smoothie green which is soo cool to little boys.
So celebrate the season with green smoothies!
Here's to your health...

I surrender!!!


I know when I've been beaten, or at least when my wife has gotten a new camera and so I've decided to take my ramblings elsewhere. I have also managed to bring several friends of mine with me and we have launched out on our own. And so, I give you...

Don't judge us based on the title alone, go and check it out for yourself.

And now, I take my leave.

The Rathaus with the advent numbers on the windows.

After our big thanksgiving day meal... we headed out the next day to the markets in Vienna. It was so beautiful as always! The kids had fun eating candy and pastries while we enjoyed hot punsch austrian style.
Enjoy the festive photos and wish so much you all could have the chance to visit us here during this season. It really is beautiful and charming.
