making Christmas, making Christmas...

Congratulations Elisabeth! My sister found out she has been accepted to medical school, so we went out for a glass of crémant, an Alsatian sparkling wine (not Champagne unless it's from Champagne...)

The last few days I have been doing Christmas lessons at school, going to Christmas parties, enjoying my time with my sister and preparing for the rest of my family to be here.

Today we baked Gingerbread cookies!

This is my lovely apron birthday present, with the Saarland slogan Hauptsach gudd gess. And some teachers from school gave me a cookbook and German Christmas cookie recipes for Christmas!

  1. My compliments from me to you
    On this your most intriguing hat
    Consider though this substitute
    A bat in place of this old rat
    Huh! No, no, no, now that's all wrong
    This thing will never make a present
    It's been dead for much too long
    Try something fresher, something pleasant
    Try again, don't give up!
