Crystal Tree Decorations, Cookies, and Caprese
All Christmassy, n'est-ce pas? David and I took a quick stroll through the Zürich Hauptbahnhof's annual Christkindlimärkt (Christmas market), and enjoyed the impressive sight of the Swarovski crystal-laden tree, towering into the rafters of this large train station.
Emily and I made some Christmas cookies to share with you. Wish you could actually eat one...
And one of my favorite lunches...for any time of the year, but it does chromatically work with Christmas...
Finally, I forgot to mention in my previous-post summary: we hosted another dance evening at our church this past weekend. I taught 32 people how to dance the Jolly Gordon, Sheena's Saunter, In-Out-and-Across, the French Girl, the Pattycake Polka, the Virginia Reel, Sellenger's Round, and Soldier's Joy. God was gracious and balanced the male-female ratio, brought fun people who seemed to enjoy themselves, and calmed my raging nerves (even though this was my 4th dance to teach, and 7th to organize, for some reason I was still very nervous). Some people we had never met before came from each of the kids' schools, from the ex-pat community at large, and from five different churches in the area. We all had fun; I just hope I get to simply attend one of these dances again someday and dance all night with my beloved... I want our previous dance caller to come and visit us here!!! Until then, I teach on as God leads, and savor the final waltz with David.

Oh, how I wish I could have been there. It is such fun dancing to your calling!
