So here we are safe and sound. Happy to be home with Buddy and Susie but really looking forward to Daddy arriving on Thursday. It's a hard time of year to be away from family but since we are traveling to Virginia next weekend, it was essential that I fly first and get Evans over the jet lag before cramming 3098230948 people into Deaner's grandmother's house. Jet lag would not have been welcome there! Especially since not much sleep is ever had when all the cousins (and brothers and sisters and inlaws) are all in the same house at the same time. It's normally one big party, drinking, shopping spree! Can't wait for the fun to begin!
Before heading out of Germany last week we got to partake in several Christmas holiday festivities. Friday night we went to the lighting of the tree on base and it was surprisingly nice. There was a big Choo Choo set up and Evans surprised all of us by getting right on it and riding it alone!!
Saturday the Deaner's struck out on their own to the Rudesheim Weinachtmarkt in the blistering cold while the Sommers did something of equal intelligence and hiked to chop down their very own live Christmas tree. I won't even go there but I hadn't heard very good reports from them when last discussed. I can't say that we faired all that much better. We set off bundled up and ready to enjoy the Christmas spirit.

Southern Loop (I know, does it get anymore Southern than my connections to JoBeth?). I can't even express how pleasant it was to work with her on Evans' winter/holiday shirts. And really, do they get any cuter than these?

He got over it quickly and ended up loving his costume.

School is going really well for Evans and we couldn't be happier to have gotten into this particular program. He has had one more "hit incident" in which he was hit in the face with a different plastic animal (not the horse like last time) but it didn't slow him down. No more crying in the mornings at drop off. Now I get a kiss and he is off to the races. Here is his latest piece of artwork that came home last week.
So that is just a brief overview of what has been going on here lately. Tomorrow I will put up all our Halloween Trick or Treating pictures and share some more of our fall adventures. For now, I have to go start dinner and prepare for my husband watching Election stuff all night. Happy Tuesday!
