My project 365… day 335 to day 359 {#onegoodthing}

December 25, 2016

Wow, it’s been almost a month since I last posted here.

Hello, anybody out there?

The last picture I left you with for my #onegoodthing project 365 was my bare Christmas tree and I guess, after finally decorating the tree the holiday season was in full swing and I was just along for the ride… It’s been a busy but fun month. Work is work and I’ll leave it at that since I have two weeks of no alarm clock stretching out in front of me. Yay!!!

(From bottom right to top left) day 335 to day 342. December is always a time for a bit of dress up with all the holiday parties and concerts to attend and we girls enjoy it. This year, for the first time, we checked out the “Christkindlmarkt” at the American-German club near us and while it was nowhere near what an actual Christmas market in Germany is like, we still enjoyed it. I always like to say, I enjoy wallowing in my Germaness for a bit at events like this. 🙂 Middle decided to take after her brother and also start playing soccer. And the two bigs were working together in harmony preparing some guacamole as a snack. The boy is our master chopper. 

(From bottom right to top left) day 343 to day 351. More soccer, watching the boy at his home games. Taking in holiday light displays before being rudely interrupted by a stomach bug that bothered little one all weekend. Boo! More holiday party fun for the adults. Loving how silly the cat is at times. And continuing on my quest to make this house a home by adding a bit here and there… the curtains really pulled the living room together. Finding homes for little critters. The last one was adopted out today and made one of middle’s friend’s super happy. 

From bottom right to top left) day 352 to day 359. More holiday fun. Holiday pot luck party at our house… and I didn’t take any pics. Hello, who am I turning into? No photos, me… unheard of. 🙂 Enjoying a cruise on the in laws yacht, wrapping presents in secret, trying new recipes, enjoying sunsets and nature and treasuring special moments with family. Lots and lots to be thankful for and always happy for the reminder by looking back at these snapshots.

I hope you all are enjoying this holiday season with loved ones surrounding you and special moments shared. I know the hustle and bustle of the season can get the best of us… it definitely gets the best of me from time to time… but in the end seeing the smiles and happiness in those you love, makes it all worth it!

Sending you lots of love,

    So much goodness happening here! Or there I guess.. ha. I have not taken any pictures in awhile either. But that doesn’t mean the good isn’t happening. this is not a great photographic time of year — too cold outside to stand around fiddling with your camera settings. allows me to sit back and watch the kids, as they are interacting in new and interesting ways as they get older. it’s such a riot to watch!! LOL

      I’ve been mostly using my phone since middle has hijacked my camera for her photography class… But any camera is better than no camera, as I always seem to find something to photograph. I can understand though that with you being in the thick of cold and Winter it may not be so easy…

    Hi Susi, I hope you and your family are having a wonderful holiday time and that you are relaxing and recharging any drained batteries. But with two weeks off… chances are pretty good that you are 🙂 Here’s to a wonderful 2017 – happy New Year!

      Thanks Claudia. Wishing you a happy, healthy new year as well. Trying to get some relaxing in – not so easy when you have to try to entertain 3 kids – well, not so much entertain, as drive them to all the places. Good thing the boy will have his license in a few days.

    That dress on you is absolutely stunning!
    The holidays always creep up on me too! Actually all of us. We are all scrambling to squeeze in all the things!
    I hope that you are enjoying all of it and trying to relax in between. Wishing you a happy and healthy new year for all of you xoxo

      Thanks so much Kim. Wishing you and yours the same. I am trying to get a little relaxing in… I guess that could be my word for 2017… RELAX!
