We're home!

First of all, thank you all so much for all the best wishes for our trip and my birthday, also for all the nice comments with the completed ornaments.
Here are a few pictures taken during our stay in Tossens, Germany.
Not much though, as we didn't really explored the place, except when we went to Bremershaven on my birthday and thought to go to a museum and a bit of shopping but the museum we wanted to visit was closed on mondays and since it is just a day before x'mas the shops were opened until 2PM and we arrived at 1pm.
The first picture was the scenery when we just arrived, so white on the background, a pity it didn't last long. The next day was gone! Temperature went up unfortunately. The picture next to it, was the house we stayed in for the week.

Before booking this trip and we know it is winter time and most children's park are closed we had really looked for a place where they have a good swimming place.
And yes they have, we spent almost everyday here. So the children had really enjoyed. That's father and son climbing the stairs for the of the few slides they have...

Here's a couple of picture of our day in Bremershaven during my birthday. One where we are standing at the museum we wanted to visit and the other one at the Ice Coffee shop. Hmmmm, that was forgotten!!!
Oh, before we leave the house, Dh and kids handed there gifts: Channel parfum, a gift cheque for beauty salon for more than an hour and special cup with some fun sayings on it. I forgot to take pictures of them.

By the way, we don't give gifts during christmas as we've done that during the 5th of december, Sinterklaas.

In all, this was a lovely and quiet christmas for us, no stress in preparing or going for a visit or going to work!
We've been out to dinner everyday! Mostly at the park self where they have buffet every night, except the 24th, 25th and 26th where we had booked weeks before our leave, to one of the restaurant which is in the park too.

With stitching?? I did took some charts with fabrics but i forgot to take the needed threads, only this sampler but the thread wasn't enough to finish it off either.

Also forgot to take books and magazines that i had planned to take especially the last serie on Harry Potter. DH took his laptop but there was no connection on that area which was really a pity..but oh well we had enjoyed our quiet evenings..!
