Her Assignment: What was the most touching, wonderful part of Christmas for you this yer AND What was the craziest, stupidest, funniest part this year?
Although we had a wonderful Christmas nothing particularly touching or crazy happened. But I swear it wasn't boring !
We always celebrate on the 24th and like last year we went to Amsterdam (Holland) for Christmas Eve to spent it together with our son, his girlfriend and her parents. On the posts below you can see some pictures.
The only thing which really touched me was that our son had invited for the 25th Christmas day, 14 of his American and English friends and collegues, who were far away from their families to celebrate Christmas together so that they wouldn't be alone.
The amusing part was that as I was the first up, I had to go out with Jersey the dog who also spent Christmas with us, while his owner was in England. Jersey is a very good dog and as it was quite cold he did his businesses quickly and then wanted to go home. And there was the problem. I had forgotten the house nr and all houses looked the same. To make it even more difficult each entrance had at least 10 very narrow steps to lead to the first floor. Of course I had nothing with me especially no mobile. I decided to count on Jersey and asked him to lead me home. I followed him, he followed me and together we climbed up 3 times the steps in a different entrance, but each time it was the wrong one. He looked at me I looked at him and we found ourselves on the street again. I started to get nervous, how could I find the right house if the dog was as intelligent (?) as I ? Finally in the 4th house and at least 40 steps later I found the right flat and Jersey too, because he waggled with his tail !
What I learned out of this : never go away without your mobile, not even to the mailbox !
Jersey tired from this adventure
