Russian Orthodox Church

We went exploring to see a beautiful Russian Orthodox Church! 
(Lizzie calls it the princess church ;) 

Our walk up the hill

Peeking thru the trees

My sweet family! 

Bekah found a tree with cool roots.

A Temple on the hill above the church

A cool old outdoor cathedral seating spot

An old war monument. 

Gracie being a solider like on the monument

A view from by the monument, love looking down on the vineyard and town. 

Love the beautiful doors.

This is an old cemetery near the church. 
Beautiful old headstones

On our walk back to the bus stop we noticed this cool little
building next to a park. The kids thought it looked like a fairy tale house.
One someone like snow white or little red ridinghood would have lived in.  

This is where the Christmas market was, they still had the metal flowers on.

And a giant Christmas tree 

New Year and a new adventure! Welcome 2015!

We have a German Bakerie (That's how they spell it.) a few blocks from our house that
is SOOOOO good! We get lots of yummy treats there! 

For new years we got a bunch of different German foods to try from the 
local German store, among them Kinder Eggs! 
Yummy and fun! 

We also got snow! The kids enjoyed going out and playing in it! 


We had a nice small Christmas this year. 

Not really sure they want to be up yet! LOL
