Don's Promotion & The Nurnberg Christkindlmarkt!

Here are some recent pictures that I've been meaning to share!

First, a few from Don's promotion to 1st Lieutenant!  His commanding officer said some wonderful things about Don & his contributions to the Battery so far.  I was beaming!  I'm so proud of you, baby!!

Next, a few pictures from the Christkindlmarkt in Nurnberg!  We went over the weekend & it was so much fun!

By the time we left the Christkindlmarkt, it was getting very crowded, not to mention rainy!  So we were there at just the right time.  The gluhwein, which is a hot spiced wine, was absolutely delicious & kept us nice & warm!  We also had sausages {oh so German!} & potato pancakes with applesauce!  Mmmm!

Has anyone ever been to a Christmas Market in the States?  I wonder what they are like & how they compare to the Christmas Markets here!
