The Pueblo German Club throws an amazing karneval! The Fasching Winter Karneval 2015 was awesome, even for this 21-weeks-pregnant-chick. :) The costumes were fantastic, the entertainment was fun, and the turn out was stellar! The party was complete with an acrobatic performance, a 1980's band, and a Glockenspiel Pot Dance (which sounds like it was hilarious but we didn't get to see it in person because we had to leave by 10:30 pm). Being obviously pregnant and not giving myself enough time to plan I kept my costume simple and went with a 1920's inspired look. But now that Mike and I know what this party is all about next year (hopefully) we will go all out and get into our costumes.
While we were off having our lovely, rare date night complete with dinner and a party, Henry was able to play with his favorite teen babysitter. He gets excited when she comes to play with him. :)
Speaking of rare date nights, 2015 is starting off being a busy year! We have gone on 2 fun, costume themed parties! By Halloween and Oktoberfest we should be good to go for a couple more fun costume themed dates too! Babysitter permitting. Finding a babysitter is the tough part for us. We are here in the middle of the country and all of Henry's grandparents are in Oregon so they aren't an option. Henry's daycare provider will watch him every once in a while but that makes for a looong day for Henry so we try not to do that too much. The best option is finding a high school student or early college student who is able to come watch Henry. The absolutely perfect option would be someone who can drive themselves! But at this point we will take anything! For now we enjoy having Carrie watch Henry every once in a while. :)
Here is Henry enjoying an apple with peanut butter. He loves peanut butter!
