St. Lucia in Neuchatel

We just came back from a weekend in Neuchâtel where we stayed with my sister and her family. The plan was to decorate gingerbread houses, but there was so much more! A walk to a local farm, with sunshine and view of the Alps. Climbin children. Cheese Fondue. Two very entertaining, homey puppet theater shows (though the little one wasn’t very fond of the devil. But who would, seriously, if he – excuse my words – craps into the fresh milk. Swiss devils seem to have a very down-to-earth way of acting :-)). Kids that outnumbered the adults. Lots and lots of games. A rather sleepless night for some of us. Santa Lucia and Lussekat for breakfast. Delicious coffee. The first loud (and long) laughter from the hobbit. Serious kid discussions while modelling with magic sand. And of course the gingerbread houses…

We’ll start into the new week with a head full of good memories and enough energy to make it to the christmas holidays.

About erdhummel

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.
