Is it really that time of year again???

On Friday night we kicked off the festive season with a trip to some Christmas markets in nearby Kleve, Germany. I am really finding it hard to believe that we are almost in December again! I don't know why, but it just doesn't feel like Christmas is just around the corner!!! Although it's cold here right now, it's nowhere near snowing and it felt a little strange to be wandering around European Christmas markets without any snow. It was still a lovely little market though - full of yummy treats and some gluhwein, it was a nice night out. I still do find it a novelty that we can go 'overseas' at the drop of a hat, just for a Christmas market! Coming from Australia, I think it's a novelty that will never wear off :-)

Mr Oliver was having a nice time too at his very first Christmas markets and as usual, he wanted to be part of the action and didn't sleep the whole time we were out. He was a little grumpy once we started standing still for dinner, but before long he was cracking some of his cheesy grins under his dummy!

And once he noticed his Dadda standing behind the camera - well, our little charmer was working those gorgeous smiles that really do bring a tear to my eye! Oliver, you are just the cutest little man!!!!

  1. Hey Lu,
    Just popping across to Germany hey ;-) I can only dream of it.... I did pop across to Bribie Island the other week, but it doesn't quite count as a different country, and there were definitely no Christmas markets there :-(
    How cute are those photo's of you and Oliver!! His smile really is gorgous.
    Have a great day,


Thanks for reading, your comments make my day :-)
