Happy Halloween

We had Superman and a bumble bee join us for Halloween! Sam was super excited for Halloween, fully aware and ready to get as much candy as he could. Nora on the other hand was confused why she had to wear a silly costume. It didn't take her long to realize candy came with it and so she has learned to like it.

Lenora didn't wait for us to open her candy, she dived right in.

Hitscherhof Pumpkin Festival and more fall fun

Since this was our last fall in Germany I wanted to make sure we hit at least one pumpkin festival. We went to our favorite one. It's about 45 minutes away from us and is run by a family farm -- similar to the Schmidt farm. We got to talk to the farmer last year and found out he had traveled to SLC and with our broken languages we understood he had heard of the Schmidt farm. He was very nice and a real live farmer. Another draw to this Pumpkin Festival is the Pumpkin soup. I couldn't wait. But sad to say I was highly disappointed. I don't know if it didn't have time to simmer or what but the flavor was off -- or I dreamt too much about how good it was last year. Justin was on a trip so we joined with the Tracy's.

 We each got our own pumpkins. Sam was ready to carve it that day. I talked him into waiting until FHE.

And that is exactly what we did for our Family Home Evening activity. A family in the ward's husband/dad was deployed so we invited them to join us…

Prague, Salzburg, and Bavaria with Mom and Dad Schmidt

After Berlin we worked our way south to Prague in the Czech Republic. It is a unique and beautiful city.

 Sam loved these toy statues!

 We made a quick stop in Czechy Krumlov - a quaint Czech village.
