Yesterday, we were all planning a trip to Kreuzberg. Kreuzberg is most famous for its beer, which is brewed by monks. At the last moment, I decided that I did not want to spend the day at a brewery (and driving to it.) So, it become a daddy-daughter day. I don't have much to say about the trip, since I didn't go, but I'm still sharing pictures.
Allen, with Damon and Brian
In the past few weeks, we have been to a few Christmas markets, from the local one in Parsberg, with about 10 booths, to the huge, crowded one in Nurnberg. We had a good time at all of them and will definitely be going back to Nurnberg and Rothenberg for more to see.Gluhwein in Nurnberg
Ashlyn's favorite part of the markets, that and the cookies
I finished the top of Ashlyn's quilt at the first of September. At the time, I thought that I was going to quilt it myself. Then, we decided to move and I felt suddenly overwhelmed with all that I need to do. So, I sent the quilt to Laura, who had someone else do the quilting. It is phenomenal! I could never have done that good of a job. I couldn't quite get a good close-up of the quilting, though. Each section is quilted slightly differently. The flowers in the center have butterflies on them, just in the quilting. I am really pleased with how it turned out.
