Christmas and New Year update

January 5, 2011

Father Christmas took time out to ski into Zauchensee on Christmas Eve, much to the delight of everyone. The evening continued with a lavish feast and the Walchhofer family joined our families in their celebrations. Father Christmas visited again during the night bringing all the children their special Austrian Christmas stockings.

Christmas day was spent skiing, relaxing on a sleigh ride or just spending time together. The children finished the day with a Christmas Party in the evening with the Hillwood team.  Fun was had by all.

New Year was celebrated in the traditional Zauchensee way, with a torch light walk around the lake followed by fireworks at midnight. We of course celebrated twice!

Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme. Bless you
