A very snowy weekend with mountains

I need to write an introductory for these pictures but oh my…. after our summer trip i mentioned how we love the mountaines. Yes, they always were beautiful for us but being right in front of that mountains and being 3500 meters high is so much different. We totally fell in love. Both of us started to see and looking for any connection with them, like my husband who runs since then was  always watching running stories in the mountains etc etc :D.
So we love it during the summer and on one hand we wanted to know if we feel the same during winter, covered with snow, just white and very cold, cause if yes, we have to keep our dream and goals for living, having a home somewhere in the world near to the mountains. And a little forest would not be bad either :-P. On the other hand we wanted to see a lot of snow, the last 3 winters we have not seen any (or too much) cause we did not have where we lived (however we were supposed to have as we have usually a winter with snow) and Vince, who is 3 yrs old saw it only when he was a little baby but we know that is different. So it was snowing day and night here, a lot of snow came and it was a double joy to go from snow to a lot of snow.

Anyway. We fell in love again. We love the mountains anyhow. We keep our dream and want to reach it. See the photos, i tried to shoot the feelings and the mood.
And the adventure did not finish on Saturday cause next day we decided to see our forest next to our house how it looks being white?! It was snowing like crazy and then suddenly sun was shining and suddenly both… so we had a good 20 minutes out there because in like 2 minutes a huge snow storm came and we hardly could go home (walking, of course) but it was so fun! We were totally white :D As we arrived home and took of our winter cloth the sun started to shine again. Silly weather… but we loved it!
So Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Eibsee and the forest near to us.

Nimrod turned 7, and asked for a Lego Mixels Party

Yeah, i start every post about my boys’ birthday (party) that i am crying a river and ask why the time has to be soooooo fast? But all the moms say it, am i right? I am so glad, they have new birthdays each year because it means we have them. But i am that kind of mommy who would go back to the time when they were babies no matter how hard (actually the only hard part is the little sleep time :-P ). Believe me, i know mommies who told me they are so happy with the fact their kids are bigger and it is easier. However they love their children. We are different. I bet it is easier for them, receive the time goes fast facts.

But back to the party, I do not know if you know the Lego Mixels series, my boys LOVE them. In each series there are 3 type of little….how to call, cause they are not monsters, they are just legos :D so 3 little something, what you can built to make a big one and when they build themselves say: MIX!
I have hosted a lot of parties before and what i really learnt is that for kids it is unnecessary to make lots of food because they eat so little. They play a lot. So we just made a fancy decoration base, and of course i made a birthday cake and there were mixels plates and paper straws, paper cups with the number on it (have to tell, Nimród helped me to paint the numbers and put the washitape!!) etcetc but really just few what ‘hit’. Beside the cake we prepared sandwiches that everyone could choose the topper as long the kids were from 5 different nations (and cultures) and there were fruits with almond and they could put some chocolate sauce on it. I put the sign ‘Mix’ as they could mix as they wanted :-)

But about the real day of the birthday and our traditions: this year the real birthday and the party were not on the same day. What we usually do then? Firstly wake up the birthday person with balloons. They so love it, just look at his face! We use these balloons always at the party and the last until they have air in them :-P. I always make a number garland of colorful papers above our dining table. Usually we have it for a month after the birthday. And of course gift time is right after waking up and I make a birthday cake for us, as a family of four to have it after dinner. And my favorite is, that the birthday person gives flower(s) to his/her mother  ’cause without mom there is no birthday ;-).

So here the party through the photos.

Happy Birthday my sweet Boy!

We travel: Baden-Baden

Happy New Year Everyone!

I start to writing the posts again, i have a lot in my pocket. I have a few from the past, what i really want to show but could not show earlier.
We went to see Baden-Baden during the wonderful fall season. This city is just amazing. It is really close to the french board, as much that you can feel a little french sense here…it is not too big but is not boring a bit! The ‘method’ is the same is Stuttgart, the center is in the valley and the city climbs up on the hill. And maybe you know but it is one of the famous bathing cities in Germany :-)

So just lets the photos…
