Jay opening his presents! He got an ipod to take downrange. It is full of songs and movies to keep him occupied with his little time off that he'll have.
This is our new Christmas pyramid that we bought in Rothenburg yesterday. It has a manger scene on the different levels. We lit all the candles and it was about to take off, the helicopter was going so fast! It will be a neat keepsake to have as a memory of Germany.
This is our new German smoker. We liked the old, fat guy. He was our favorite! I started him up tonight and he smoked away, in the scent of gingerbread. It made the house smell much more like Christmas!
Even though we had a great Christmas together, it just wasn't the same. We sure wish we could be together in December, but this will have to do. And what's Christmas without snow!!! Instead, we were wearing shorts and had the window open! It's all the thought that counts!!
