Jason and Mr. Sam.
Merry Christmas everybody! Christmas here has been quite different so far- no tree, no lights, (no electric to run them, except when the generator's on!) no presents as of yet, and although it's a little different than other days so far, it's hard to realize that it's actually Christmas.
Yesterday, JoHannah and I made bread by hand, with flour that the boys ground using a manual grinder that fastens to the table. We turned half of it into sandwich rolls, and the other half into cinnamon rolls. We had the latter for breakfast this morning, so followed the traditional Christmas morning breakfast for my family.
Later, Mr. Sam, one of the Schmidts friends, came over for lunch. He is an older German man from Poland, and seemed to really enjoy his time with us. He was vry nice, and loved Jason (who fully reciprocated the feeling) and it was quite interesting to listen to him talk, especially about his family, and all the Germans, in post-WW 2 Poland.
Well, the children are fed, and will be in bed soon. Looking forward to a nice evening with the Schmidts. Hope you all had a Merry Christmas, and wish you a happy New Year!
