Hope all is well out there! Things are getting busy for the holidays here (I have to say that I'm glad not to have to worry about Thanksgiving this year - just straight on to Christmas, lol). I feel like I have so much to do already with gifts for people and things to finish on projects already started (did I confuse everyone with that last statement - I think it confused me, lol!!).
Dustin is out of town until late Friday/early Saturday :-( I am so bummed that he is traveling so much right now (and long hours at the office too :-( Hope it gets better in the new year - Dustin keeps saying that is end of the year rush...). Brenna and I wrote her letter to Santa today - we plan to mail it tomorrow :-) I already have it all ready to go now. It amazes me that the only item she really wants is a stuffed dog (she has wanted this dog since June - isn't that too funny for a 3 year old!). Not sure yet how I am going to wrap him - I had hoped to find a gift bag, but didn't find any that large, so I am thinking of making her a laundry bag instead. I sure feel like I am running out of time for stuff here as we fly to the US in less than 3 weeks!! (it is more like 2 1/2 weeks) - I can't believe that this is our last trip back to the US before coming back permanently to the US (and when we come back in January to Germany only 8 more months and then we are back in the US :-). The upcoming year should be lots of fun with travel and getting our last wish list places in :-) I have a suitcase and a half packed already with stuff to come back to the US (and stay there, lol) - hope I can fit everything in this trip, lol!
Brenna is doing well at school. She has a favorite song that they sing frequently - it is called Pitsch, patsch, Pinguin (I think it is something like splish, splash penguin - going to have to ask the German teacher next week, lol). It took me a while to figure out what she was saying and then took some more searching on the computer to actually find the words :-) I will have to try to sneak some video of her in with it - it is very cute!
Well, I think that about covers what is happening right now - going to have to find some good activities for this afternoon and tomorrow for Brenna :-)
