The New Apartment

A few people have been curious to see what our new place looks like and now that it is all decorated for Christmas and I have a working camera, here goes...

Here is the outside. Ours is the bottom right. We have 6 windows facing out. The bay window and the one to the right of it are the boys', the next 2 are the living room, and the last 2 belong to our room.

I will start with the entry:

Looking straight into the apartment from the front door.

Cheryl's desk/office area.

Looking right, from the front door, into the boys room.

 We celebrated quietly at home with Jonah's favorite and now traditional German chocolate cake.

 He is growing up so fast and finally outgrew me this year! He still has a long way to go, but he is growing quickly now.

 Grandmommy and Papa hand delivered his gifts this year! They came and visited us in March and left Jonah's (and mine) presents. We also got to go to Rome and Florence, too. I will post those pics soon.
 He got a Kindle and gift certificates and the traditional Adventures in Odyssey CD's.


 Caedon wanted something different this year, but just wasn't sure what kind of cake. He did know he wanted cupcakes, so I found a delicious recipe for surprise filled cupcakes. They were chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese and chocolate chips in the middle. I added some toxic waste green cream cheese icing to top them off.
Caedon got his Adventures in Odyssey Cd's and was very excited because he was afraid we might have forgotten to buy some this time. He was quite relieved!

He is also into Batman and wanted figures that were quite hard to find. We found one in the store and had to order the other online. He is patiently waiting for that one.

We celebrated with our friends the Chumbley's in Prague. We wanted to spend as much time as possible before they go back to the states for 9 VERY LONG months!

Caedon and the kids also went Laser tagging at a mall there in Prague and despite some scraped elbows, had a great time.

"Extreme" Alpine Hike

I love hiking.  And now that the kids are getting old I am getting more opportunities to go again.  Today we climbed up a little waterfall laden ravine...

Logan's 7th Birthday!

Logan had a birthday in February. Our "baby" is 7! Where did the time go?

He wanted a Wolverine/superhero theme and we invited our friends here in Graz to come help celebrate. Logan got a robe (he asked for it) and wore it the entire time opening his gifts!

A remote controlled helicopter/car. He needed a new one after the last one finally broke.
Strawberry cake with strawberry icing. The cake was delicious but looked terrible!
