Today the kids celebrate Carnival at the school. They were so excited, that all 5 of my kids were up at 5:30am. That was waaaay too early for me.

So we had to get the customes out, the make up on and all the great food they had to take for their class parties packed. Oh, and we can't forget the glitter hairspray that is now all over my house. And I have to mention, we sprayed it outside and it is still all over the place.

Shantal is a clown, Spencer a cowboy (a boy and his gun), Hannah a fairy and Emma just had to join in and wanted to go to school too. She put on a ballerina outfit. I made her wear tights and a shirt because it just is too darn cold. And then of course, Emma wanted make up just like everyone else.

I can't wait for them to get home from school and see how everything went. So I am sure there will be another update later. Just had to post these pictures for Grandma and Grandpa.

And then for all those who don't know what Carnival is, I wrote all about it last year here on the blog. You can check it out here: Carnival Blog Entry

The kids look cute. That's one of the things I am missing in Berlin because Karneval is an import from Bonn here and not important.
Had a question for you- my friensds in the states say Americans with a passport can visit a PX, Mandy at martinis for Two says only military personnel, and I thought so too. I remember that you went to a base and shopped: did you go alone or with a friend in the forces? Thanks, Gail

Gail, you do have to have military id or something to get it. Even non u.s. citizens can get it with an escort. I went with some friends who work for the American Embassy. When they leave in a few months, I won't be able to go again.
