Samiclaus visited the boys this year, they must have been good. They left out there boots on the night of December 5 and the next morning they woke up to goodies inside.
The cookies begin. First off pumpkin cranberry.
Decorating sugar cookies. Logan didn't understand why he couldn't eat them all.

St. Martin led a simple life, but he was known for his good deeds. One of the most familiar stories is of him cutting his coat in half and giving it to a man whom did not have a coat in a snow storm.
In Switzerland we celebrate the feast of St. Martin. The children make lantern out of many different materials and parade through the villages to music. Here are a few of the parades we participated in.
With our friends in Oberriet.
Best bud Clement.
At his school ready for the parade. They made their lanterns in class and learned two German songs which they sang along the way.
