It Snowed!

Sunday night was magical. We had our dear friend's Joel and Henriette over who helped us to decorate our flat for the holidays. While we love the way the environment changes with a x-mas tree in the room, we both knew that Bella would be compelled to tear it down and we don't want to spend the next few weeks saying ,"No...Don't touch the tree," every five minutes. We decided to frame our large window overlooking the park with a fresh cedar and juniper garland. We even added lights and ornaments. So on Sunday night we all had tea and cookies and watched the snow through our magical window. Actually it was more of a blizzard.

We decided to end our traditional German Advent with a trip to a Mexican cafe a few blocks away. Bella has been eagerly awaiting her first real sleigh ride....We have been pulling her around on the carpet since I found the sled at a flea market. We all bundled up and headed out the door. Bella really loved it...Since we don't use a stroller she is always carried in a sling...Outside of when we use our jogger to run or rollerblade around the park. She seemed very confident riding through the icy streets not attached to Brian or I.

The snow has since melted. I can't wait till' the next one though. Perhaps I am a little more excited than Bella.

Dearest Bella Nixe, Rachel & Brian:

What a magical winter wonderland,
snowglobe you are all living in! Wish I could be there to have tea with Bella, pull her in that new sled, and feel all cozy snuggled up with her in bed!!!

May you all have a joyous holiday with your new little family nested in at home & celebrating with friends to bring in the New Year.

We love, honor, & cherish our life connection with you 3.
