SISTER is here!!!!!!!!

My amazing sister stepped off the plane into Germany last Tuesday! Can't believe she has been here a week already! We haven't done anything too exciting, but have been able to spend some time together! I love this girl, and she knows just what to say! I sometimes forget that I am the older sister, she takes care of me so much more than I have ever taken care of her! She is truely wonderful! :) Lovee her!

We went to France the other day, to the Alsace region. Beautiful. We went to see a potter, explore a tiny village, and taste some french wine! It was a perfect day, even with the chilly air! The best part for me, was sitting in a small french cafe, the waitress knew no english! It was just a neat experience, being able to use bits of french to order our food and listen to the locals chatting away, not knowing waht they were saying!

Our next adventure, shopping in Ktown, a night out at one of the German clubs, and Paris this weekend! We also have a trip to London in the works, as well as Munich/Dachau. I need to show this girl around so she leaves with some great memories! She has been just what I needed right now!

On a different note, still don't know when I am coming back to MN, Hoping for the 2nd week in February, but may be a bit longer! Military is kickin my butt right now! Ah!

How could I forget the most important subjct of all my blogs, Miss B! Busy as ever, entertaining like no other! :) She is absolutely in love with Molly! She has someone to play with now! When Molly arrived, I brought her to B's school to pick herup! The suprise on B's face was priceless! :)

Pictures to come soon!

Asking for too much?

Is it possible to ask for too much? Or expect too much? And how do we know what is "too much" to be expected? I guess I have always been one to give, give, and give some more, and never really expect much in return. BUT the time seems to have come, where I am definitely tired of giving so much and getting nothing in return. So I have asked for help from others more than I ever have before, hoping to get a bit of help in return. Yet, it just doesn't seem to work in my favor. Since when did people stop helping out others, simply out of the kindness of their heart? Yes, sounds corny, but really?

Are we all so absorbed into our own lives and selfishness that we completely forget about others? Absolutely. I am guilty of that, for sure. But being aware of this, makes a world of a difference. I guess I really don't have a point to make, but just an annoyance currently on my mind.

My sister will be here in 2, yes 2, days! Haven't seen here since June! Lovee this girl more than most, can not wait to have her here! :)

Congrats to all those expecting little ones! So exciting! Miss Kayla will be having a little one soon and Tricia recently found out she was having a little one as well, so excited for you both! :)

Saving the fish...

So little miss B and I were walking down the frozen food section at the commissary today. I was walking a bit ahead of her and I turned, noticing she had stopped walking. I asked her what she was doing, she turns to me with the saddest little look on her face. She looks at me and says "mommy, look at these fish, what are they doing in there?" I didn't really say anything before she said to me, "Mommy, we need to save them! We need to throw them back in the pool!" :)

If this doesn't make you smile...

then something is definitely wrong. My little photographer at her finest! :)

Happy New Year!

I've been missing in action for the past month or so, my appologies! I hope everyone had an amazing holiday season this year! Christmas and the New Year have come and gone! And when I looked at the calender a bit ago, I realized that I have less than 2 months left in Germany! I will definitely miss it, but am so ready to go back to Minnesota and get on with things! Miss B has been busier and energetic, more then ever lately! She got some awesome new toys for Christmas and got to spend a week with her daddy home. They had some quality bonding time while mom spent time sleeeeeping! It was much needed!

Anyways, let's hope 2011 brings many more memories for all!
