  2. A straw filled pond. That looks like fun.

  3. tut-tut,
    are you going to show us some pictures? I would love to see your Christmas market!

    Charles Gramlich,
    believe me, those wee ones love it! The pond was filled with their laughter, and I saw them building more than one straw castle (must not have heard yet of the three little pigs' ill-fated straw house! *g*).

  4. Oh that was one big guardian angel. I could use one in my corner. thanks for stopping by.

  5. Beautiful Christmas market, and just love the first photo of the angel.

  6. Da gehe ich morgen auch hin, mit Tochter und Schulfreund der Tochter :-)Ich freue mich schon sehr, vor allem da ich gesehen habe wie schön es dort wieder ist
