Our New Year's Eve 2014

New Year's Eve and the girls have a plan. The same procedure as last year, you know.

Dinner prep, some kiddie fireworks, watching TV and board games (don't forget to watch Dinner for One!!!), raclette dinner, some table fireworks, TV, some more fireworks outside and then the real fireworks.

Of course, we kept the same traditions as usual: wearing clothes with rounded prints, rounded-shaped fruits, marzipan and chocolate made lucky charms, sekt and kiddie wine, mini table horns, fireworks, and a Bleigie├čen set (lead kit).

Fruits and Raclette on the table

Our Christmas Eve 2014

So, it's Christmas Eve!

The best time of the year, but 'could we open one gift already?`', pleaded the very impatient IC.

To appease her, I told the girls they could already put their gifts under the Christmas tree as early as the 23rd of December. This year, they shopped and wrapped the gifts.

And this year, too, they helped their Papa to prepare our Christmas Eve dinner. Yes, they are our secret Christmas elves :-D

Of course, the Christkind passed by secretly to bring the bigger gifts.

As our tradition, we attended mass, went to the cemetery to visit Oma and Opa before I had the privilege of checking if the gifts from the Christkind arrived on time while the kids and my husband took a short drive.

Rikki is happy to find a big bone under the tree!
 What a surprise! There were more gifts under the Christmas tree!
