Update from the busy week

We had a snow storm last monday so we took the kids out for some fun. We were watching our friends kids for five days, so we all bundled up and enjoyed the great outdoors. Gabe was having a great time in the snow.

I had already finished bathing Gabe. I stuck a diaper on him and let him run around for a while. I kept Eva in the tub longer because she loves playing in it. I went to find Gabe about five minutes after I let him loose and found him back in the bathroom with Eva. She was putting bubbles all over his face and body. They both thought it was the funniest thing in the world.

These two pictures were of Friday night. We had the huge 1st Armored Division military ball. It was in the Kurhaus in downtown Wiesbaden (a gorgeous building). It was fun to get all dressed up and feel like a woman, not a mommy for once. I was looking foward to going thru the whole night without being barfed on, spilled on, peed on, etc. but it was unsuccessful. Some idiot was dancing with a glass of wine and spilled it all down my dress. I was pretty upset. I went thru the rest of the night smelling like alcohol. Besides that, it was a pretty good night.

Last night, some of my girlfriends and I got together and went out to dinner. We had a great time. I'm sure going to miss this bunch of ladies. I love the women in my ward! It will be a very sad day when I leave. I am trying to get as many girl's night outs as possible before I leave. I don't think Hans appriciates it too much, but he's been such a great sport and watches the kids for me. He knows how much these ladies have meant to me. I have had such a wonderful time getting to know my cousin Renee (the woman next to me in the picture) as adults. We have had so much fun. She is one of my dearest friends. I love you Renee!!
