Happy Resurrection Day!
An attempt at the Easter portrait. Christ The Lord is risen today, alleluia!
This morning all the girls went shopping. It was fun to go to the mall with Sianna, Selah, Senna and my Mom. Of course, it was work and it involved a lot of snacks, but it was neat to have a girl outing.
Other than our morning excursion, we had a very slow, post Christmas day. The kids played with their toys. We once again ate leftovers.
Now that Christmas is over, I’m starting to feel the urge to pack and get things prepared for our move back to Asia. Last night, I separated all of our toys from the guest house toys. There’s some packing that is ready to be done and some supply shopping that needs to happen. But today we enjoyed one last day with my Mom. She’ll train back to Arkansas tomorrow evening. (We’ll join her there a couple of days after that. So our goodbye won’t be too teary… yet.)
Surprisingly, we left the Christmas Shop empty handed. Like all budget backpackers, we decided to try Rothenburg’s famous treat: the Schneeballen instead of purchasing a $10 ornament.
After trying to eat it plain, Hubs soaked the Schneeballen in tea. Didn’t help.
Blast. We should have purchased a pyramid! (At that time, the small 10 inch tall ones would have only been around USD80. Bargain!)
It’s a wonderful addition to our select Christmas collection and is sure to provide a great illustration of the Christmas story for years to come.
(Just wrapping up the December Daily. Thanks for your patience.)

After recognizing why we have Christmas and why we give

Happy 3rd Birthday Selah!
The day began with cereal and blueberries which Selah separated into two bowls. There’s a lot of cooking that needs to happen today so making a big, birthday breakfast was not on the list. (Love her two bandaids. For Selah, bandaids are an accessory.)
For Selah’s third birthday,
