Crazy Kids,  Family


Bre arrived in town this past Wednesday, just in time to start her Christmas break and to celebrate her twenty-first birthday! My sister and niece were also in town, so they joined us at Roja for lunch, where Mike treated Bre to a fruity concoction…

The rest of us sipped our waters while these two behaved like a couple of fruitcakes…

After an enchilada lunch, it was back home for presents. It cracks me up how little kids love love love to help people open their gifts. Natalie took it upon herself to dive right into the gift bag and retrieve Bre's gift, just in case Bre didn't know how to do it…

One of Bre's gifts was some Bare Escentials lip gloss, which Natalie wanted to try on…

While the celebrating was going on, Tilly stayed perched up high, where the dogs couldn't reach her…

A childhood friend of Bre's gave her this darling little wine glass ornament…

It was a really fun day, and I'm so proud of my Bre. I love you, sweet girl! Happy Birthday to you!

    Happy Birthday from Germany, dear Breanna !
    Have nice holidays at home with your family.
    In three hours, the Holy Christmas Night in Germany will begin. I do the last preparations for dinner. I am sad that Lutz is at work and he will come home for nearly midnight. Hope that all “bad boys” are sitting at home, because there are only the minimum officers at the police station.
    Fröhliche Weihnachten ! from Anja

    The happiest of 21st birthdays Bre! I can still remember mine – all of these many years ago. On December 30th, of this month – I will turn 41 years older than you – LOL! Love your kitty!
    And that Natalie is beyond cute! I just love her little face…. Especially in the picture where you are putting the lipgloss on her. That was adorable!
