This Sunday, December 19th was Tobi’s birthday. We got up early so he could go to the Fishmarkt again and I put streamers on the breakfast table and a candle in his English muffin.
We ate, he left, and then I met him at church. It was a nice Sunday. Our good friend, Matthias, preached and it was a nice time. We then came back to the apartment to bake, clean and get ready for the party.
I made Russischer Zupfkuchen and some awesome Turtle Graham Bars (though I had to modify the recipe…graham crackers aren’t anywhere to be found! But Leibniz Vollkorn cookies worked just fine.). Tobias made Glühwein. We had lots of other food available too: popcorn, gingerbread cookies, clementines, roasted chestnuts…good stuff!
It was a lot of fun – lots of people came throughout the evening, and it was fun, relaxed and just a nice party. We even lit the Christmas tree with the real candles, which was a nice thing too.
Happy birthday, sweetheart. I am so glad and so extremely blessed to have you in my life. Here’s wishing you another awesome year! I’m happy I get to spend it with you!
