This year Switzerland has had an abnormally beautiful Fall. This is partly why you haven’t heard much from me. I’ve been trying to soak in every last ray of sunshine, every last color left on the trees, and every last bit of tradition which comes with this season.
Before I welcome in the winter, I’d like to post a few fun pictures from this last fall I didn’t post.
The Sunday before Halloween, Andy and I went with a couple of work friends to carve pumpkins. (Heather is trying to imitate her jack-o-lantern)
Then we lit them for our 2 trick-0-treaters. That’s actually a new record for us!
Although we knew they were coming.
Thanksgiving this year was awesome, since we got to celebrate twice! Once at a friend’s house and the other Andy and I hosted.
The morning started out like every morning should start out, with homemade cinnabon cinnamon rolls.
It continued with appetizers…
Artichoke dip and a bunch of other nibbles.
Then I got busy cooking and forgot entirely to take pictures of the rest of the food and guests! I must have been hungry…
This was the menu though.
I did get a shot of our youngest guest.
I couldn’t get enough of him!
He is such a sweetheart!
We stuffed ourselves with delicious food, played a game of Settlers, then stuffed ourselves some more, and then rolled ourselves to bed.
What a great holiday!
I have so much to be thankful for this year: an amazing husband, a warm apartment, a job, great friends…the list could go on and on.
Since Thanksgiving, I’ve made turkey curry, pasta with turkey, and soup with the turkey leftovers and I still have more!
This last Monday we woke up at 5:00am to go to the annual onion market in Bern.
I know it’s crazy, but I absolutely love it!
There were plenty of onions as usual…
decorated in every possible way.
Normally we would buy a bag of confetti and throw it at innocent strangers, but this year we felt a bit tired and decided to take in all the excitement from the safety of the starbucks windows.
It would be very tempting to repeat this tradition next year as well,
especially since we truly saw it all,
but don’t worry next year we’ll get back in on the action!
We’re not that old yet!
Thanks Fall for being so good to us! I can’t wait to see what winter has to bring!
