New Years´ Eve was exciting. The girls got to stay up till past midnight!
The afternoon started with cocoa, tea, and snacks. They had Christmas stollen, Spekulatius (spiced almond) cookies, and chocolate cake. Yum!
Later, they played a few rounds of mau mau.
When they were tired of the card game, they got out the dice and played “Mia“.
They spent some time solving sudoku puzzles.
Finally, Flea got out her role playing books and Hayley brought some more snacks. The adventure was on!
Hayley: “Fireball! Oops, sorry, Patti! I thought you were indestructible!”
Flea: “Alright, the King rises from his throne and says to you: Noble warriors, I welcome you to my castle.”
Hayley: “I shoot him with my crossbow!”
Patti: “I ready my sword and dibs on his crown!”
Lilo: “Fireball coming online…!”
Addy: “Hoody hoo!”
Flea: “I should have hidden my KODT collection!”*
Finally, the time had come. Midnight!
The girls crowded at the window to watch the fireworks (which are customary for New Years´ in Germany).
What a fun night!
