Weihnachts-Frühstück und ein Spaziergang durch den Park.

[ Christmas morning breakfast and a walk through the park ]

Christmas Eve ended pretty late - but sleeping in was not a part of Christmas morning. Moritz and I - now sharing the same room for the week with the house filled with relatives - didn't originally think we had an alarm clock - but we were wrong with little Timmi coming downstairs and marching in with "Mo-gen! Guden Mo-geeeen!" It was a bit before 10, but Moritz and I were the last ones up - and I came upstairs to quite a surprise.

A huge breakfast spread on the table ready for Weihnachtsfrühstuck. Clad in a warm sweater and surrounded by the cheery atmosphere of everyone on Christmas morning I was definitely feeling the holiday spirit.

After our great breakfast - a tradition of the family with everyone sleeping over the house during the Feiertagen - Holidays - everyone got their shoes on and wrapped new scarves around their necks for a family outing around the Kiesee - a large, beautiful lake only minutes away from my home in Göttingen.

A nice family stroll, kicking around the soccer ball [ who had to slip in the mud?... just guess], and some humorous attempts to fly a kite, the Christmas morning excursion was a very nice family outing together to enjoy the rather moderate Christmas day temperature.

Back home, after a bit of a Pause, everyone was back up again around the house and Inge had the kitchen filled with the aroma of a delicious and huge turkey nearly bumping the edges of the hot oven. Another evening with a few more relatives stopping by, a big Turkey dinner and some board game spielen around the candle glowing Weinachtsbaum was in store for all of us.
