O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum, du kannst mir sehr gefallen!

No, I haven’t suddenly switched this blog to German. All I know of the language is confined to what I learnt in grades 8 and 9 – which wasn’t much. Nope, O Tannenbaum relates to the Christmas tree, of course … And with Christmas only a month away we went out looking for the perfect one yesterday. It was quite the adventure, and it left us with a bit of time for some photos too.

  2. Looks like the traditional family Christmas tree hunt in a Canadian winter wonderland 🙂 Looks like you all had good family fun and I love the family pic. Have to use that one for the Christmas cards.

  3. Haha … a rare pic of you Robin. Although it looks like you’re trying to hide under that hood! And you all look so perfectly colour-coded too!

    1. Geraldine is right, now you have proof you were actually there! Love the colour coded “family” photo including the camo beanie on the other crazy South African! I hope you are going to post some photos of the tree decorated.
