Flat Angel's Visit

 Flat Angel has come to visit us all the way from Deer Lodge, Montana.  Jessica Danforth sent her in a letter (it is quite handy being flat sometimes.)  Angel likes to play games, make new friends and go places.

Angel arrived yesterday morning, so she went with me to pick up Luna from Kindergarten.  Luna's kindergarten is at a church, so we showed Angel the pretty church in our village.

Then we ventured inside to pick up Luna.  Angel got to meet all the German schoolchildren. They were also quite excited to meet her when they found out she came all the way from the United States!

We showed Angel all of the old timber framed houses along the street.

The we went to the bakery to pick up some buns or "Brötchen" for our lunch.

Angel wanted some of the yummy, sweet looking goodies in the case, though.  It is very common for Germans to stop at the bakery every day for fresh bread.

We made some cheese sandwiches with our Laugenbrötchen (pretzel rolls).

Then Angel helped us make some turkeys out of toilet rolls.  Germans don't celebrate Thanksgiving, so we will be celebrating at a special dinner hosted by some American friends of ours.  The guests will include Americans, British, German, Spanish, Finnish, Slovakian and Dutch, some of whom have never had a Thanksgiving dinner before!

Then we went to Herzogenaurach, the next town over, to do some shopping on the main street.  We love the medieval towers there, and Luna thinks that is where Rapunzel lives.  You can really see the timber framing on the buildings in this picture!

We had a great time showing Flat Angel around.  We are so glad that she was able to come visit!
